Weather The Storm With Grand Prix Management

Wellington, FL – April 13, 2015- Grand Prix Management can serve as an essential team manager to keep your property as safe as possible for the damaging and dangerous Florida storm season.  Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30, and Florida is statistically four years overdue—are you prepared?

While hurricanes are difficult to predict and can cause significant damage, Grand Prix Management can make sure your property is properly secured with necessary shutters installed and in place prior to the storm.   They can also be present before the storm to make sure the home is secure, and take care of any clean up that may be necessary during the aftermath.

During a storm, homes can be damaged from high winds and possible flooding due to torrential downpour.  Debris can break doors and windows, allowing the intense winds inside and causing more damage. 

Severe tropical storms and hurricanes can create winds strong enough to cause building failure. Experts have learned that there are four crucial areas to inspect on your home for potential weaknesses.  These include the roof, garage door, windows and doors.  If these projects are completed before severe weather hits, they can make your home safer during a hurricane. 

The roof should be examined to determine if the truss bracing would be able to stand up to the intense winds of the storm.  If not, additional bracing may be in order.  Hurricane straps are designed to hold your roof to your walls, and should be installed by professionals.  It’s important to check with your local government to determine if hurricane straps are required in your area.

Installing storm shutters over all exposed glass surfaces, including windows, are one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your home.  A building permit may be required to install these shutters; so checking with the local government can save a lot of potential headache further down the line. Grand Prix Management handles all permitting, saving you the time and frustration of filing. Plywood shutters can also be utilized to reduce cost. Grand Prix Management can facilitate the installation of any type of shutter to provide the maximum level of protection possible.

Adam Blauweiss and Lee Hughes at Grand Prix Management have a comprehensive understanding of the weather in South Florida and understand what is necessary to maintain your investment.  They are able to work closely with the local building department to make sure that your property is up code with protective devices such as shutters or additional trusses.  The company has the best contractors in the business on call for any potential work that may need to be done prior to the storms, and can oversee any size project, big or small.

The team at Grand Prix Management can come up with an effective strategy to make sure your property is prepared to weather the storm season.  Call them today before the storms hit and make sure your investment is in the right hands.
