How Do Hurricane Shutters Work?

Why Get Hurricane Shutters
Hurricane season comes every year in Florida, without fail. You can’t wish it away or pretend it’s not a reality. Taping your windows is a recipe for disaster. Quality hurricane shutters that are professionally installed are your best bet for keeping your home and family safe. Here’s a few reasons why you should consider them:
- Florida is a hurricane prone area, especially counties along the coast.
- Hurricane shutters protect property and lives.
- Easy to use and operate once they are installed.
- Shutters are durable and effective in the face of extreme weather.
- Shutters protect your windows and doors from dangerous winds and wind blown debris.
- Shutters help protect your roof by keeping hurricane force winds out of your home.
- Shutters are more secure, durable, and reliable than a piece of plywood.
Obviously, the best time to get them installed is when you’re building your home, but you can count on us to install them on your existing home. A great time for installation is before hurricane season starts. Then if a hurricane comes, your shutters are already up.
They’re not only for windows. You can have them installed over your doors and garage doors. After all, your garage door is your largest entrance into your home. Reinforcing it with a shutter is smart idea. Trust is when we say, you don’t want to get stuck putting up plywood shutters the day before a hurricane. People will be very distracted and unhappy at the store, no one will cut your plywood to size, and there may not even be any left when you get there.
Why Plywood Isn’t as Good As Real Shutters
First off, we want to remind you that plywood doesn’t meet Florida building code. With that said you should know they don’t provide the same level of safety that a professional hurricane shutter. Plywood is thin and can very easily come flying off your house during a hurricane. In fact, if you can’t secure a piece of plywood close enough to your home, wind will get behind it. Hearing them rattle during a category 4 hurricane isn’t something you want to experience. A commercially produced shutter is designed to take the impact a hurricane brings and you can trust us to install them correctly. Hurricane shutters are a valuable investment and you’ll be glad you have them when hurricane season begins.
