Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
With South Florida having escaped the worst of Tropical Storm Andrea’s winds, if not its rains, Venetian Builders, Inc., President Chris Noe said today that owners of aluminum sunrooms, patio covers and screen enclosures shouldn’t be complacent about damage prevention during the 2013 hurricane season.
“It pays to be pro-active on storm-damage prevention,” said Noe, whose Miami company designs and builds aluminum additions, patio roofs and screen enclosures in South Florida, and upgrades older aluminum structures. “The Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently forecast on nhc.noaa.gov a 70 percent likelihood this year of 13 to 20 named storms, of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes. That’s above average.”
Preparation is best started during buying, Noe said. “Buy from a reputable company that builds not just to meet the Florida Building Code, but also to surpass it,” he said. “Ask if they use heavier-gauge framing on their screen enclosures, offer code-complaint skylight roofing systems, strengthen structures with carefully engineered gussets, and specify stainless steel fasteners. Venetian Builders takes all those measures,” Noe said.
If you already have an aluminum structure, he said, follow these measures:
Venetian Builders installs aluminum solariums; patio covers, including pergolas and lattice; patio rooms; and screen enclosures, including swimming pool screens. It services communities from Jupiter to the Keys, including West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami and all their suburbs, including Davie, Pembroke Pines, Coral Springs, Boca Raton, Miramar, Hialeah, Miami Gardens and Homestead.
