In the meantime, our experts have compiled some tips to help you select the best storm shutters for you home and make sure that you’re getting all of the protection that you need.
Make Sure You’re Getting the Type of Protection You Need
Storm shutters can offer two general types of protection: wind impact protection, or storm debris protection. Some shutters are designed to protect against both.
- If the shutters are designed to protect against debris impact, you should make sure they’re constructed up to the highest standards. The shutters should be able to handle the extreme weather that has the potential to develop in Treasure Coast and the surrounding areas.
- Shutters that are designed to lesser standards be sufficient and even cost-effective in other areas, but with the strong potential for serious storms in our area, they are not a great choice.
Make Sure the Shutters Are Attached Properly
Your storm shutters need to be attached to both the structural framing of your home and your window or door frames. If they aren’t perfectly fitted and properly attached, they won’t be able to protect your Treasure Coast home during extreme weather.
you also need to be certain that all of the exposed metal fitting, screws, and anchors will be able to resist weather and corrosion. our experts can make sure that this is the case during our shutter installation services.
if you have a garage, you may want to retrofit the garage door to ensure that it’s able to withstand high winds as well.
Remember That No System in Hurricane-Proof
While it’s true that properly selected and installed storm shutters can provide your Treasure Coast home with a great amount of protection, there’s no way to make your home totally hurricane-proof. No matter what, there is always a chance that the weather will be so extreme that your shutters can’t protect it.
It’s also important to know that every home is completely unique, and there are no universally accepted rules for storm shutters. Our experts will work with you to find the best options for your home, your budget, and your needs. There’s no substitute for working with a professional who has your precise needs in mind.
