Lumber is a big necessity when it comes to protecting your home from a hurricane. The plywood will protect your home from the strong winds which could shatter your windows. We talked with John Sweet with Zarksy's Lumber Company and he recommends purchasing half inch plywood with attachment clips to remove the boards to both install and remove the boards easily.
Sweet says preparing before a storm threatens will sure make the process smother in the event we are threatened with a storm.
"I do recommend that they do it prior to the notification in the gulf. it is something you need to think about months in advance to have it cut and prepared to slip in. it probably take you a hour to run across your whole house," said Sweet.
