Choosing the Best Hurricane Shutters for your Home

Updated: Mar 17, 2020

When a hurricane strikes, the last thing you want to be worrying about is whether or not your home will be adequately protected. When tensions are high, and the storm is approaching, having dependable hurricane protection in place is vital to the well-being of you and your family. If you’re looking to install new hurricane shutters for optimal shelter during future storms, here are the various types available on the market to help you determine how best to prepare your home.

Storm Panel Shutters

Storm panel shutters are made with both heavy steel or lightweight aluminum paneling for the customer’s choice. They’re designed for easy installation without sacrificing coverage and they’re also the most cost-effective option. Clear panel options are available for those hoping to see outdoors once the storm hits while maintaining superior protection at the same time. When not in use, they’re also stack-able for convenient storage.

Rolling Shutters

As a more sophisticated option, rolling shutters can be installed over your windows and dragged down or rolled up as needed. They can simply latch to seal off your windows and can even be specially-built for motorized control as well. However, this can lead to problems if you experience power outages during a storm. While this choice is both convenient and effective, the price of these shutters is considered the most expensive of the bunch.

When a hurricane is ready to bombard your home, having your home’s exterior suitably prepared ahead of time can be a life-changing course of action. Purchasing high-quality, durable hurricane shutters can help minimize damage to your home while offering hurricane protection to your entire family.

Colonial Shutters and Bahama Shutters

These type of hurricane shutters are permanently installed onto the windows of your home, looking stylish while still ready to be utilized within minutes. They’re easy for anyone to open or latch close, making them a viable option for families with elderly relatives or young children. Unfortunately, however, this style doesn’t come equipped to cover doors for added hurricane protection.
