Businesses in the Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Pete region of Florida are aware of the need for commercial hurricane protection. On account of this, and for close to 40 years, West Shore Construction has provided our business customers with storm protection. Particularly, hurricane fabric, hurricane windows, and hurricane shutters.

Owning a business is a large investment. Safeguarding your investment, not to mention your livelihood, is a priority. Federal Emergency Management Associate reports that 80% of a building’s value is in its equipment and inventory, as well as other contents. Tropical storms bring the possibility of damage from water, wind, and flying objects. Unfortunately, after experiencing harm from a natural disaster, 40% of affected small businesses do not reopen. The good news is that installing commercial hurricane protection will defend your livelihood. Not only this, but it will increase the probability of you reopening your business after a tropical storm.

Hurricane Windows

Hurricane windows are a popular storm protection option for businesses whether you are in Clearwater, St. Pete, or Tampa. As a result of being manufactured to defend against powerful winds, no deployment is necessary. Hence, there is less worry and hassle in advance of a hurricane.

In the same way as auto glass, hurricane window glass shatters upon impact. Additionally, it does not separate from the window frame. This commercial hurricane protection prevents wind, water, and projectiles from entering your building.

The windows installed by West Shore Construction meet the Florida State Building Code as well as the Miami Dade Building Code. As a result, we offer the best protection for businesses in Tampa Bay, including Clearwater and St. Pete. Further, we ensure compliance with your region’s wind zone regulations.
