While Miami and counties close by may have escaped the fury of Hurricane Matthew, the event brought to light the poor state of preparedness of many residents with respect to hurricanes. If you’re a resident of Miami city or surrounding areas, you cannot ignore the warnings that nature is sending your way. You have a responsibility to the lives of your loved ones and to protect the property that you have painstakingly created.

Miami accordion shutters that you can find on Hurricane Shutters Florida are easy to operate and provide exemplary protection from hurricanes and theft. They are a cost-effective alternative and are made from aluminum, steel, or Lexan.

Miami accordion shutters use nylon rollers and can be secured from inside the house or outside. They close over the door or window smoothly, and when closed, they are easily stacked on the sides. If you wish to protect a large opening such as a balcony, patio, storefront, or a garage door in your Miami property, then accordion shutters are the way to go. Extruded aluminum used for the shutters is at least of 0.125-inch thickness. It is coated with an acrylic enamel to protect it from the elements and stave off pitting and corrosion.

These aluminum shutters can be easily opened and closed. They do not have any removable parts and do not require storage. They require very little space and when opened, the blades occupy around one inch space for every foot covered.

Hermine was the first hurricane to hit the state of Florida in a really long time. The hurricane made landfall in the Big Bend region on 2 September. It was characterized by 80-mph winds. Communities along the coast had to evacuate and many areas had to live without power for as long as a week. Before the hurricane season begins, you must make sure that you are aware of the evacuation routes, have a hurricane shutter installed, if you already have a shutter installed then ensure that it is in proper working condition, stock yourself with supplies, have a first aid kit handy, keep a stock of batteries and flashlights, ensure that your car is running and fueled up, and have spare dry clothing.

When a watch or hurricane warning is issued, you must immediately move to higher ground. Shutter your property, and secure any objects lying outside or move them in. Once you have weathered the storm, do not venture out. There will be debris and also broken electricity cables and wires. Wait for the floodwaters to recede. Maintain hygiene.

Ensure availability of clean drinking water. Of all the precautions and steps listed here, the most important one is to have hurricane shutters installed. Hurricane shutters stand between fierce winds and rain on one hand and extensive property damage and loss of life on the other. Glass doors and windows can break easily during a storm. Hurricane shutters protect them. The same holds true for garage doors. In the past, Hurricane Andrew caused extensive damage to unprotected garage doors. Your best bet with shutters is to choose ones that are easily installed, are affordable, and provide protection.

The weight you accord to these attributes will depend on your requirement. In an area that is exposed to heavy winds and rain, you need a sturdy shutter. If you live in a multistory house or are feeble, then you need shutters that can be managed remotely. Aluminum panels are a good alternative because they are not only easy to install but also very strong. But you need to check if they satisfy the building codes of your area.

It is worth remembering that whatever the kind of shutters you choose, they will be only as good as the installation. Make sure that experienced and qualified workmen install the shutters. The best hurricane shutters are those that are a part of the structure, and the best time to install shutters is when the house is being constructed. If that’s not possible, then get the shutters installed when the hurricane season is still some months away.

You’ll find that installers have more time during off season, and will be able to do a good job at your premises. Also, it’ll cost you less. Once, hurricane season arrives, you should check your shutters to ensure that they are working smoothly and lock correctly. Paneled shutters should be checked for any signs of warping or damage that could impact the structural integrity of these shutters.

If you stay in a condominium, your condominium association cannot stop you from installing shutters. Chapter 718 of Florida Statutes of the Condominium Act (1991) permits each board of administration to adopt specifications as to color, style, etc., but all specifications “shall comply with the applicable building code”. The Florida statutes further state “… a board shall not refuse to approve the installation or replacement of hurricane shutters conforming to the specifications adopted by the board.”

Hurricane Matthew, the 13th storm of the season, has moved away from Florida, but only after battering the east coast of the state. The hurricane has resulted in six fatalities and has left behind in its wake-uprooted trees, blown transformers, and flooding in coastal areas.

However, the state can consider itself lucky that the storm actually skirted Florida and did not make a landfall here. Instead, it moved to South Carolina. Erosion caused by the storm left huge tracts of the A1A missing in Daytona Beach. St Augustine reported heavy flooding, the storm surge brought several feet of seawater inland. Flagler and Duval counties reported massive power outages. More than 700,000 residents across the state faced a power blackout.

However, advance warnings of the approach of this hurricane were taken seriously by residents, and many boarded their doors and windows and headed for higher ground. Volusia seems to be the hardest hit in the state; things get worse as you go north.

Those properties that had installed hurricane shutters fared better. Storm panel shutters, accordion shutters, and roll down shutters are popular shutter types used in cities across Florida and if you own a beach-facing property or live in a coastal area, then you need to have such shutters installed to protect life and property.

Hurricane shutters Florida can protect your residential and commercial properties from storm and wind damage, water damage, flooded basements, wet floors, and also theft and vandalism in the aftermath of a hurricane.

Matthew arrived in the U.S after wreaking havoc in Haiti. Before this one, there was Hermine in September. Florida is no stranger to storms. It can go for years without one, but when they do arrive, it is only appropriate that we be prepared for them.

Q: Can you shut the power off on the electric shutters?
or are they always on?

A: they are always connected to the electric

July 31st, 2014

ok
Q: which is correct: measuring the distance between door frame to door frame which for a standard door is 36″ or measure from outside of the jamb to outside of the jamb which would be about 37.5″
this is a pre-hung door

A: I would say the door jam because the shutter will be built larger than the opening measurements
we can verify with our engineer tomorrow morning though

ok thanks.
no problem

July 31st, 2014

A: what type of shutter?

Q: how expensive are the roll down coverings for windows and can they go over glass doors

A: yes they can, but “build out” may have to be used so it not as flush as over a typical window. Please call our office and speak to Michael, he can guide you through the process and give you a quote: 888-474-3555

Ok probably accordion or Roll-down depending on the width 08:00
yes 08:00
how wide does the shutter need to be 08:00
we have several windows and a dbl glass door 08:00
I am tryig to find the simplest way to secure it 08:01
ok, you may want to send us a picture of the storefront, so we can assess the situation 08:01
our email is: info@hurricaneshuttersflorida.com 08:01

Yes well I need to go get that. I have shots inside of course 08:02
it would be good if you could measure the expanse and the height from the outside 08:02

There are 4×8 windows on either side of the doors and another 4×6 on the front 08:03
we would have to see a picture most likely 08:04
I would like to find a double screen to close in front It would need to be about 50 feet 08:05
50 feet wide? 08:06
yes 08:06
It’s possible with Accordion shutters 08:06
not a pull down, more of a pull togather 08:06
but you will need to speak to our engineed Michael and probably send a picture 08:06
Yes that’s exactly what an accodion shutter is 08:07
Accordion* 08:07
I need a 2 piece 50′x10′ total length security screen that attaches to side of building and locks in the middle 08:09
I know you can see the building if you can go to google earth 08:10
send us in an email with your request please: info@hurricaneshuttersflorida.com. 08:10
I am 10 miles away from it or I would send it right now. 08:10

I am opening a store in the real wild west and need to secure it. 08:12
Can you give me any idea of a per foot or sq ft price on what I need? 08:14
I think Accordions will do the trick, but we have to see how the windows layout and the door, we can’t sell you a shutter sight unseen 08:14

I am thinking it would be easier to just cover most of the front rather than each window 08:15
something in the $11 per square foot range. But the way our shutters are built, our cutting tool takes your given measurements of the opening and then builds it to be the most secure and fit properly, but we can also build them to what ever size our customers request 08:15
possibly…we have to take a look then we can advice you accordingly 08:16
