Storm shutters are a great idea because they’re the first line of defense between you and the elements. Flying debris during a severe hurricane do great damage to your home. Not to mention potentially injure you or your family.

But protection from the elements isn’t the only reason to install shutters. Five great reasons to put up shutters include,

  1. Light control
  2. Security
  3. Decoration
  4. Privacy
  5. Insurance savings

So shutters won’t just be useful during a hurricane, you can enjoy year-round benefits and still have protection when a storm hits.

1. Light Control

The Florida sun is brutal. As residents, we know during that period of time between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM it might be best to stay indoors. Even indoors though, the sunshine can significantly heat up your home.

With the light control shutters provide you can enjoy the shade, and even run your AC on a higher temperature. You’ll be more comfortable and may even reduce utility costs.

2. Security

Storm shutters protect against flying debris, but also provide a durable barrier between you and any unwanted guests. You can’t just break our aluminum shutters, tools would be required to get through them.

This would be a loud and apparent process, that burglars would definitely avoid. So if you’re looking for extra security, aluminum storm shutters may come in handy.

3. Decoration

Storm shutters are obviously for storm protection, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish too. We can paint your shutters any color you could think of. This way you can match your shutters to the existing aesthetic of your home.

We offer two hurricane shutter styles, colonial, and Bahama. The colonial hurricane shutters influence the look of a classic colonial estate. Whereas the Bahama shutters will give your home more of an island vibe.

4. Privacy

Shutters are designed so you can see outside but no one can see in. When your shutters are fully closed, you have a level of privacy you just don’t get with curtains. So if your home doesn’t offer a whole lot of privacy from the outside world, storm shutters may be the way to go.

5. You May Recieve Insurance Savings When You Install Storm Shutters

Hurricane damage can be really expensive and your insurance company would prefer to avoid the costs. That’s why you can receive potential discounts on your homeowner’s insurance when you install storm shutters.

How do you receive these discounts? A wind mitigation test needs to be performed to gauge the protection of your shutters. When you pass, the information can be sent to your insurance company and you may receive discounts.
