Do Impact Resistant Doors Help Maintain the Structural Integrity of My Home?
Yes. Impact-resistant doors can help maintain the structural integrity of your home during a hurricane or tropical storm. During a severe weather event, you want to maintain your home's structural envelope.
However, the weakest points in your home's structural envelope are its windows and doors. An ineffective door could be blown in during a storm, which could cause massive destruction if wind, rain, and debris enter your home. Furthermore, during a major storm, there is likely to be a significant difference in pressure inside and outside your home. The sudden change in pressure caused by your doors blowing in could actually blow your roof off. Fortunately, an impact-resistant door can stand up to wind and debris, helping to keep your home safe by maintaining its structural envelope.
