When you’ve lived in Sunshine Coast for awhile, you come to expect summer storms rolling in every afternoon. But how to prevent damage to your security doors in Sunshine Coast when those big storms come through?
Tips for Storm Protection
Remove any excess branches or trees
Something that often causes damage is falling trees and branches. If one of these happen to fall onto or through your screen doors, they are likely to do a fair amount of damage. Remove any branches that could come off in high winds and consider removing any trees that risk damaging your property.
Pack away any loose items
Pack away any loose items that could take flight in high winds. This includes children’s toys, patio furniture, trampolines and more. While its unlikely you’ll have a trampoline flying through your screen door in Sunshine Coast, things like small kayaks and patio furniture can easily be moved around in the wind,
Ensure door locks securely
Making sure your door locks securely will help from keeping it flying open, as well as excess rattling. This is essential if you need to evacuate – your screens will not only act as protection to your door and windows, but also as a theft prevention if you need to stay away due to flooding.
Check attachments are in good repair
Check that your screen doors are secured correctly and that there is no rust or corrosion on the hinges which may cause the door to fall off in high winds.
