Hurricane Impact Doors can increase the value of your home by $150
Hurricane impact doors in Birmingham are doors that are specially engineered and designed to withstand strong hurricane winds. Most homeowners have the tendency to disregard the importance of a door when a hurricane hits because they think that the door is just a small part of the house. However, much of the residential damage that is caused by the fierce wind actually starts from a door being broken. When your door is intact, the hurricane wind will flow outside your house, while keeping the indoor air pressure the same. The moment your door breaks, it creates an opening for the strong winds to enter your home. Once this happens, the winds will cause rapid changing of the air pressure within the house. Aside from your belongings getting flown around, the strong and rapid change of pressure will cause the internal structures to oscillate, bend, dislodge, and break. Hence, if you keep your doors intact during a hurricane, and your home will be much safer. To achieve that, you will need Birmingham hurricane impact doors.
Fair price breakdown
Now you know how important Birmingham hurricane impact doors are, the next obvious question is - how much are they? The exact costs of a hurricane impact door are difficult to pinpoint as there are a lot of factors to consider. One big factor is the type. If you are thinking of a simple wooden (or wood-looking) door that has no windows, then it's relatively cheap. When it comes to reinforcing doors, it's actually the glass that's the weakest link. Hence, much of the costs will go into using a special kind of glass that is impact-resistant and can stand strong hurricane winds. Other than that, the cost is just properly securing the door into place, which is not very expensive to do.

Another factor that affects the price is the exact location of your home. If your house is located near a hill or a mountain, then you don't need extra strong hurricane impact doors as the natural geographic features around your house can act as a shield. However, if your house is located in an open field or facing a body of water, then you can expect to pay more as your doors will need more reinforcing, which can get very complicated and labor-intensive.
