Is It Time to Install Hurricane Shutters?

If you live in Florida, it is not hard to think back to the last hurricane you experienced. How did you fare? Did you have mild cleanup with a few stray branches and lots of leaves? Or, did you experience more significant damage like a broken tree limb on your roof or through a window? Did you board up with plywood or hurricane shutters?

Hurricane Shutters and Installation Time

With the high winds that accompany hurricanes, even tropical-storm-force winds, as opposed to hurricane-force winds, your homes or cars can sustain significant damage. We cannot think up every possible outcome of a hurricane, and we can’t possibly prevent every bit of cleanup or damage. But we can be as prepared as possible.

If you went through the hours-long hassle of boarding up your windows for the last hurricane, then we would like to propose the idea that perhaps it is time to have hurricane shutters installed. Deployment time with most hurricane shutter systems is approximately 45 minutes or less. Now, think about how long you spent boarding up. We would bet it was significantly longer than 45 minutes!

While boarding up may be effective, it is time-consuming and tiring, particularly in the heat and humidity that we experience in the days leading up to a hurricane’s arrival. Then, you must decide what to do after the storm passes. Do you stay boarded up in case another hurricane comes through to save yourself the trouble of having to board up again? It could be as soon as a couple of weeks after the last hurricane that another storm system approaches. That is a lot of work to board up, un-board, and re-board again in such a short amount of time.

Hurricane Shutter Systems

Investing in hurricane shutters will save you money in the long run. There are a wide variety of hurricane shutter systems from accordion shutters to colonial shutters to Bahama shutters and even state-of-the-art Armor Shield systems. These various systems come in different price points and ease of deployment. We have a shutter system to meet each person’s needs.
