Advantages of Hurricane Shutters
Living in Florida where hurricane season occurs annually, it’s important to be prepared. When these dangerous storms hit, they can cause major damage to everything in their path. One safety precaution we recommend taking is installing Hurricane Shutters for your home because they offer many advantages in times of crisis:
Prevent Glass Breakage - When hurricane shutters are properly placed and installed over your glass doors and windows, they shield the glass from being broken by harmful wind, rain, and debris.
Reduce Risk of Injury - Broken windows welcome flying debris (including broken glass) into your home where your family may be seeking shelter. Without hurricane shutters, the combination of negative pressure, high velocity wind and violently circulating materials can enter into your home can cause serious injuries and even death to those caught in the crossfire.
Easy Operation - After hurricane shutters are installed, they are designed to be simply maneuvered by one person. This makes them easy to operate, and one less thing to worry about when dangerous storms hit.
Resale Factor - Hurricane shutters on your home can actually help increase its value on the housing market. They’re a feature prospective buyers will appreciate and can take comfort in.
Peace of Mind - Ultimately, installing hurricane shutters will give you peace of mind when a hurricane is imminent. You can take comfort in knowing you’ve taken the proper steps to prepare for the storm, and that the shutters will help keep your home and family protected.
