With the volatile weather throughout Tampa Bay, Bahama shutters are the right way to protect your property. Not only do they enhance the aesthetic value of a building, but they are highly protective as well. Shutters, like many additions to your home, are an investment that you can enjoy while also increasing the value of your property. They not only offer an aesthetically pleasing look but keep the house cooler and provide privacy as well.
Bahama shutters from Master Aluminum come in many varieties and options. We make it easy for contractors and builders by offering standard sizes as well as options for custom-fitted designs. At Master Aluminum, every order is customizable to fit the specific needs of your Florida property. Since homes, gates, and windows can be different throughout Florida, it is better to work with a company that provides wholesale options to better purpose your shutters. In addition, our products meet Florida building codes and hurricane ratings for the ultimate protection and longevity.
With the right materials and style, you can have long-lasting structures that save you money. For many locations throughout Florida, not just any material will do. Exterior commercial shutters manufactured by Master Aluminum are made to withstand the heat and climate of Florida without losing integrity. Also, since most of our aluminum extrusions are proprietary, Tampa Bay residents and businesses can only get our unique designs at Master Aluminum. Dealers can purchase commercial shutters at wholesale while homeowners can still buy them at retail price.
Why Choose Aluminum Bahama Shutters Over Other Materials?
Aluminum is a popular choice for many construction projects, particularly those near water. Unlike other metals, even stainless steel, aluminum is highly resistant to corrosion. Even in cases where the metal has been galvanized, aluminum offers more benefits. Galvanization is a process by which metals like stainless steel are treated with a layer of zinc. For metals that go through galvanization, only the top layer is corrosion-resistant.
Tears, scratches, or a natural loss of the galvanization layer often lead to faster degradation. Tampa Bay properties near the water need some form of corrosion protection in their exterior materials. Since aluminum is resistant to factors such as saltwater, corrosion is much slower.
Aluminum is also extremely lightweight compared to galvanized steel. This allows for a more comfortable installation experience while maintaining strength and durability.
With the addition of a quality finishing coat, your exterior Bahama shutters will last even longer in Tampa Bay. A mix of powdered paint keeps the aluminum sealed and better protected from UV rays and water. Customers also have the option of adding a clear top coat to preserve color. Master Aluminum Bahama shutters also have warranties lasting three years or longer depending on the product.
Types of Shutters
Exterior Bahama shutters from Master Aluminum come in a variety of options such as:
- Hurricane Shutters (Two styles: HV Bahama and HV Colonial)
- Architectural and Decorative Shutters (Designs include: Z Blade Bahama and Colonial, Foil Blade Bahama and Colonial, Board and Batten Colonial, Arched Foil Blade Panel, Arched Board and Batten)
Depending on your preferences and location, certain choices may be better for your home or property than others. Exterior shutters offer more than aesthetics; they can also protect from hurricanes. Florida has many storms throughout the year, and a lot of property damage occurs due to the lack of protection. Places close to the water like Tampa Bay can experience winds that shatter windows and send glass flying.
With the foil blade Bahama style, you can avoid the potential dangers of glass and high-velocity winds. Exterior Bahama shutters also offer protection during post-hurricane situations. Power outages in Tampa Bay can take weeks to resolve, and others may seek to take advantage of the situation. Exterior shutters keep potential robbers away from vulnerable glass and easy access to your windows.
