At Brevard Shutter, we specialize in hurricane protection for your windows. We sell and install a variety of products from accordion shutters to beautiful Bahama Shutters to our unobtrusive clear panels, so we know that we have the window protection to meet your specific needs. We thought you might be debating, as many people do, whether you should get hurricane shutters or impact glass (“hurricane windows”). We want to help you understand the benefits of shutters so you can make the choice that is best for you.
While impact glass has its advantages, we believe that our shutters will better meet your needs overall. Impact glass is always there, ready for a storm to hit at any moment, so even if you are gone on vacation you know that your house is protected. They do not have to be “deployed” like shutters. HOWEVER, impact glass is not unbreakable. They may become scratched or damaged and will need to be repaired or replaced.
The main question on everyone’s mind is cost. In general, our shutters will cost you less than impact windows. If you are a homeowner, you probably already know that one of the most expensive home upgrades is replacing all your windows, particularly if you choose impact glass. It is simply not an expense that the average homeowner can afford.
Our shutters are quick and easy to deploy, so even if you are gone on vacation, you can easily ask a friend, family member, or neighbor to deploy your hurricane shutters. A lot of people think of that old standby, the metal corrugated hurricane shutter. However, at Brevard Shutter, we have multiple types of hurricane protection available. You may be surprised at how far the industry has come in its innovations. Because of this, we encourage you to come by our showroom in Melbourne, FL. It is open Monday through Friday from 8 am – 4 pm. You can not only view the different shutters we offer, but you can touch them, practice deploying them, and ask as many questions as you want until you feel satisfied that you have all the information you need to make your decision.
IF your shutters are damaged during a storm, they are much easier and less expensive to fix or replace than an impact window. This is not a common occurrence, however, as our shutters are made of top quality materials. In fact, many people who have experienced shattered/scratched impact windows have chosen to have hurricane shutters installed in addition to their impact windows. Talk about cost! Instead of spending your children’s future college tuition, go with the best choice first and choose our hurricane shutters.
We are here to help you make the right decision for your home, needs, and budget. We offer free estimates, so come in and see us today at our showroom or give us a call. We proudly serve the Melbourne, Palm Bay, and beachside areas. It is our busy time of year, but we are never too busy to meet a new customer!
