Why Install Quality Storm and Hurricane Shutters?

Simply doing nothing to protect your home from the storms and hurricanes we experience in this area is not an option. Coming up with a different solution for every severe weather threat is a waste of energy and resources. And in some areas of Louisiana, storm shutters are required with new home construction.

  1. Protection. Hurricane force winds penetrate the opening of your home, and the roof lifts off. You can imagine the damage to what’s left within. Protection of your home and family is the main reason to invest in effective storm shutters.
  2. Value. Improve the appearance of the exterior of your home, and help manage heat on the inside, and increase the resale value of your home.
  3. Peace of mind. This one-time investment gives you years of maintenance-free, easy operation. Quality storm shutters are a self-storing, easy-to-operate, security and protection solution.

“If you have to leave, you don’t have to worry about windows blowing out and the roof coming off of your house.”
Tony Fontenot

Surviving The Storm…

After Hurricane Andrew, which caused large-scale destruction in parts of southern Florida in 1992, a team of experts examined homes that failed and ones that survived. They found four areas that should be checked for weakness: the roof, windows, doors and garage doors. Measures can be taken to strengthen each of these areas of your home.

Installing storm shutters over all exposed windows and other glass surfaces is one of the easiest and most effective ways to protect your home. Cover all windows, French doors, sliding glass doors and skylights.

There are many types of manufactured storm shutters available. Before installing shutters, check with local building officials to find out if a permit is required.
