The countdown is on…15 more days.

The official start of hurricane season is less than 15 days away. Actually we’ve already had our first named storm of the season… are you prepared? It’s a good idea to start getting prepared before the season starts..but what should you do? (besides making sure your garage door is hurricane rated) Start by visiting our Hurricane Central section of our website. You’ll find tips, product, advice, and loads of ways to prepare. Just in case.

Experts agree that one of the best things to do is prepare a family hurricane plan – an outline that specifies what every member of the family will do before, during and after a hurricane.

Some general guidelines for preparing your family hurricane plan are:         hurricane prepardness

  • Find out if you live in an evacuation zone.
  • Call your local emergency information center.
  • Decide in advance where your family will stay during a hurricane – at home, a friend’s home, a shelter or a hotel. Pick a back-up location in case there is a problem with your first choice. Make sure everyone knows the location, address and phone number.
  • Ask an out-of-town relative or friend to be your emergency contact, and make sure everyone knows that person’s phone number. Tell your contact person where you will be during the hurricane.
  • Make arrangements for those with special needs.
  • Talk to your employer about whether you will have to work in the event of a hurricane. If so, decide who will pick up the children from school.
  • Practice and review your plan.

A hurricane supply kit should be put together long before a hurricane threatens your area. Your hurricane supply kit should include:

A TWO WEEK supply of each item for each person in your home.
WATER

  • Seven gallons of water per person (1/2 gallon for drinking and 2 gallon for bathing, tooth brushing, etc.).
  • Store water in clean, plastic containers.

FOOD

  • Purchase foods that require no refrigeration and little preparation such as:
  • Ready-to-eat canned food
  • Canned juices, milk, soup (if powdered, store extra water)
  • Soft drinks, instant coffee and tea.
  • Lots of ice (You can freeze your water supply.)

BABY

  • Formula, bottles, powdered milk, jarred baby foods
  • Diapers, moist towelettes and special medications

PETS

  • Newspapers or cat litter for your pet’s sanitary needs
  • Moist canned foods in order to preserve water
  • Plastic sheets to cover the floor of pet’s room

MEDICINE

  • First aid kit, rubbing alcohol
  • Aspirin, non-aspirin pain reliever and antacid
  • Extra prescription medication (especially for those with heart problems and diabetics)
  • Ask your physician or pharmacist how to store prescription medication.

PERSONAL ITEMS

  • Toilet paper, towels, soap, shampoo
  • Personal and feminine hygiene products
  • Denture needs, contact lenses and an extra pair of eye glasses
  • Sun protection, insect repellent

OTHER SUPPLIES

  • Battery-operated radio, flashlights, non-electric can opener, extra batteries
  • Charcoal, waterproof matches, extra propane for gas grills (Use grills outside only.)**
  • ABC-rated fire extinguisher in a small canister
  • Portable cooler
  • Plenty of absorbent towels, plastic trash bags
  • Wind-up or battery-operated clock
  • Tarp or sheet plastic, duct tape, hammer and nails (for temporary roof repairs)
  • Cleaning supplies such as chlorine bleach
  • Aluminum foil, paper napkins and plates, plastic cups.
  • Can of spray paint (can be used to identify your home for insurance adjusters in case it’s damaged)
  • These items can cause fires and shouldn’t be stored inside the house.

CLOTHING/BEDDING

  • At least one change of clothing per person, sturdy shoes, hat and work gloves
  • Blankets and pillows or sleeping bags

Pick the smart choice for your garage door

Nowadays weather seems to be in the news constantly. Energy efficiency is more important than ever nowadays. When upgrading you garage door it is imperative that you choose a product that will help your home save as much energy as possible.

intellicorecutawayClopay Doors now feature Intellicore insulation technology in select doors.  Garage doors featuring Intellicore® insulation technology represent the ultimate smart choice for homeowners. Clopay’s Intellicore is a proprietary polyurethane foam that is injected into a garage door, expanding to fill the entire structure. The result is a door with incredible strength and durability. Its dense insulation also produces a quieter door, while its industry-leading R-values (up to 20.4) provide year-round comfort and improved energy efficiency. Smart, indeed.

warmerIntellicorebadge

WARMER.

Intellicore-equipped doors have some of the highest R-values in the industry, up to 22.2. In cold climates, Intellicore helps keep your building or warehouse warmer. Alternatively, in hot climates, it helps keep the warm air out. At its core, a Clopay door with Intellicore is energy efficient, making your building more comfortable all year long.

quieter Intellicore badge

QUIETER.

Intellicore-equipped doors are simply quieter. Just shake a non-insulated door and then an Intellicore door and you’ll hear a big difference in noise levels. This means that common occurrences, such as a exterior traffic or wind hitting the door, will be uncommonly quiet with an Intellicore door.

stronger Intellicore badge

STRONGER.

Scientific tests show that a Clopay overhead door sections featuring Intellicore insulation are nearly twice as strong as a polystyrene door section of the same thickness. This enhanced rigidity provides greater resistance to everyday wear and tear. Essentially, a Clopay door with Intellicore will look better, longer.

Broten Garage Door Sales is the largest Clopay dealer in South Florida and we have been for over 10 years! We will help you choose the most energy efficient and beautiful garage door for your home. Call us at 1-954-946-5555.

Is your garage door properly insulated?

The weather is getting cold even in South Florida. Your garage door is the largest opening to your home so it should be properly insulated. When your garage door is properly insulated it will help control the transfer of heat and cold air into your garage. If your garage is below another room in your home the temperature in your garage will have a direct impact on the comfort of that room. If your garage is directly attached to your home air passes from your garage to your living space so it makes sense that the air is regulated. callout-1

Garage door insulation is measured by R Value. The higher the R Value the better the insulating properties of the door.  This R-value can help you decide on the door especially in what type of region you live in. Because we live in a warmer climate, the R-value might not be as important to you as the other benefits insulated doors. Insulated Doors are also more durable than non-insulated doors. Non-insulated doors are the “beer cans” of the garage door business. They are made with only one sheet of metal. Very easy to dent and crease. Insulated doors can come with several different types of insulation that fill the garage door. The doors can come in Expanding Polyurethane foamed-in-place insulation or Sheet Polystyrene insulation. Insulated doors are much more durable and last longer than non insulated doors.

Broten Garage Door Sales can help you select the appropriate garage door for your home. We are the largest Clopay Dealer in South Florida and we can help you choose an energy efficient and beautiful garage door to enhance your home. Call us at 1-954-956-5555.
