Hurricane Season 2015 - Home Preparedness
Tip: One of the biggest threats to your home is the failure of just ONE storm shutter. Storm shutter installation is just as important as the shutters themselves. The shutters should be installed by professionals and the installation should be checked carefully for weak attachments or poor alignment. Frequent installation and removal can weaken the masonry attachment point. We check everyone with a pull test.
East Cape Builders can provide several Hurricane Shutter Systems, and our Insurance Group can also ensure your home and personal property against hydro-meteorological events. Please contact us for a FREE estimate on hurricane shutters and their installation and/or a free homeowner's insurance quote for your home. Call James: 624.110.0187

AstroGuard Hurricane Fabric is Stronger | Safer | More Affordable | Easier to Deploy
AstroGuard is a resin-coated hybrid fabric that is 40% stronger than polypropylene, providing unmatched protection from hurricanes. AstroGuard provides “full envelope” protection of your home or commercial property, deflecting hurricane-force winds and preventing pressurization of the home. This pressurization is what causes roof lift-off during a hurricane and catastrophic damage to the home. AstroGuard weighs just ounces per square yard and gives homeowners and business owners peace of mind knowing that their property, belongings, and families are protected.

What is AstroGuard?
AstroGuard is a resin-coated hybrid fabric that is deployed over windows, doors, lanais, porches, garages and other openings. It protects against water, wind, and projectile damage during a storm. AstroGuard weighs only eight ounces per square yard, making it a lightweight, manageable alternative to traditional metal storm panels.
How Strong is AstroGuard?
AstroGuard has passed the rigorous testing necessary to gain Florida Building Code approval (#15208). It is also approved for use in High Velocity Hurricane Zones (Dade NOA #10-0607.02) by the Dade County Building Department. With Burst Strength of well over 1,500 psi, AstroGuard easily outranks plywood, roll-downs, accordions, and other hurricane fabrics.
How Can a Fabric Protect my Home or Business?
By design, AstroGuard is a flexible, nonporous fabric that is attached to your home or commercial property with standard hardware. The difference is the revolutionary mounting clip. Unlike competitors using grommets that tear the fabric, AstroGuard’s patented mounting clip bites into the fabric without tearing it. Our system actually pull-tests hundreds of pounds higher than competitors' systems.
Is it Affordable?
AstroGuard is the best value in hurricane protection in many ways. Not only is it affordable, but it also saves you money on auxiliary expenses: 1) It can reduce your homeowners’ insurance costs. 2) Its ease of deployment means you may not need to hire a handyman to put it up and take it down. 3) AstroGuard folds up neatly into its own storage bags and takes up very little space in an attic, garage, or storage unit.

What makes AstroGuard unique is our coating and sealing process. AstroGuard blocks wind and rain from entering your home or structure. It surpasses all other hurricane protection methods and barriers in tests. The test we use to demonstrate the abilities of AstroGuard are against the Australian Cyclone Standard, which is twice the force all other hurricane barriers have to pass in order to be certified in the U.S.
AstroGuard's reinforcing clips set it apart from other hurricane fabrics. Other reinforcement methods, such as strap and buckle, can snare and tear the fabric when exposed to extreme wind, rain and flying debris. Our reinforcing clips provide flexibility without compromising durability. The flexibility of the fabric is able to catch rain and flying debris and high speeds and repel it, much like a trampoline.
Our patented coating and sealing process also gives AstroGuard more UV protection compared to other hurricane fabric barriers. Other hurricane fabrics withstand more wear and tear when left in direct sunlight. AstroGuard is able to withstand UV rays, making it more durable and reliable than other hurricane fabrics
