Murray Premier Services is here to proactively assist you in preparing for a potentially active hurricane season. In 2024, Hurricane Ian was the third most costly storm to ever impact the Gulf Coast with an estimated cost exceeding 133 billion dollars. Homes that were left unprepared suffered more damage than those that were better prepared for both the wind and rising water.

Murray Premier Services preparation and mitigation are key – we are here to assist you every step of the way.

This visual assessment includes critical items such as:

  • Doors and windows

  • Decks, patios, and lanais
