Colonial shutters offer a classic colonial style while providing many year-round benefits. Plus, these shutters can be more than a decoration. Colonial hurricane shutters will protect your family, and secure your home during the harshest storms.

What Are Colonial Shutters Made Out Of?

Colonial shutters are made from different materials. Some include aluminum, composite wood, fiberglass, and some others. But aluminum shutters prove to be the most durable, and long-lasting. This is why we craft our shutters with durable extruded aluminum.

The Pros And Cons Of Aluminum Colonial Shutters

Aluminum shutters can be the icing on the cake for your home. In a perfect world, aluminum colonial shutters could provide everything with no downfalls. But the world isn’t perfect, and that’s why we’ve adopted strategies to combat issues aluminum may face in the Florida weather.


The three main pros of colonial aluminum shutters are,

  • Durability
  • Strength
  • Lightweight compared to other shutter materials

The strength-to-weight ratio of aluminum shutters is a highly desired quality. It might not seem important to think about how much your shutters weigh. However, heavy shutters can put pressure on fixings. In time, this can damage your shutters and your home.

Despite the lightweight though, aluminum shutters are incredibly durable. Our shutters go through vigorous testing to make sure you get through the storm safely. This strength also comes in handy for security purposes as well.


An issue aluminum shutters tend to face is rust and corrosion. Living in Florida the air is very moist and salty so aluminum shutters can begin to deteriorate.

We combat these issues through our welding process. By eliminating the need for screws, pesky cracks, and crevasses, our shutters won’t rust out and corrode before the years up.

Do Colonial Shutters Increase Home Value?

Decorative colonial shutters can increase the value of your home. They’re a permanent addition and offer many benefits you can enjoy daily. The light control provides shade which can also cool down your space. This may decrease utility costs which add to the value of your home.

Not to mention hurricane shutters are appealing to many home buyers. They won’t have to install their own hurricane protection. Plus insurance savings are available if shutters pass a wind mitigation test.
