Preparing your home before a hurricane can have a significant effect on the safety and protection of you, your family and your property. Whether you own or rent your home in West Grand Bahama, there are necessary steps you can take to prevent injury and damage during the hurricane season.

High winds, wind-blown debris and flooding pose the greatest threat to life and property, therefore securing your home is critical if you reside in a hurricane-prone region. Here are 5 steps you can take to help protect your family and home in West Grand Bahama:

  1. When a hurricane or tropical storm threatens, remove all loose items from around your yard. This includes lawn and patio furniture, flower pots, garden tools, toys and fallen tree branches. Any objects that are not securely fixed can become dangerous projectiles during high wind activity.
  2. Clear debris from gutters and drains.
  3. Elevate the heating and/or A/C system, water heater, and electric panel if your area is susceptible to flooding.
  4. Purchase enough non-perishable food, water and flashlight batteries to sustain you and your family for at least 3 days. Remember to fill your gas tank ahead of the storm.
  5. Protect windows and doors with quality shutters to keep out wind and rain. Accordion hurricane shutters are a top pick for many residents in West Grand Bahama due to affordability and ease of use.

When choosing hurricane shutters for your home, you’ll need to consider not only the purchase price, but also storage space before and after a storm. Because storage capacity, closet space and shelving is often limited in many of the homes on West Grand Bahama, Accordion hurricane shutters make the most sense.

Here are just a few of the benefits of accordion hurricane shutters:

  • Your entire home can easily be made storm-ready by one person.
  • They are permanently attached beside the windows and don’t require any extra storage space. This means you don’t have to drag heavy shutters out of storage and balance on ladders while securing them to your windows.
  • Some models can be locked with a key and can be used as a theft deterrent during or after storms, or even while on vacation or at night if it makes you feel safer in your home.
  • Glide on wheels make these shutters easy to open and close. The track is durable and long-lasting, so they don’t require much maintenance.
  • Average storm preparation time is fifteen to thirtyminutes for your entire house as compared to hours and hours spent nailing up cumbersome metal panels or plywood.
  • Accordion shutters can conform to curved or oddly-shaped windows, making them an excellent choice for many homeowners in West Grand Bahama.
  • Easy to install.
  • Less expensive than many other types of hurricane shutters.

Residents of Alligator Island, in northwest Florida are no strangers to hurricanes. Irma, Dennis, Katrina, Hermine are just some of the hurricanes to have caused damage to this town.

If you live in Alligator Island, then you need protection from hurricanes. Storm panels are the best option.

Steel storm panels are the most cost-effective option for house-owners in Alligator Point, Florida. Despite being an economical solution, these shutters made of galvanized steel that is resistant to rust, can withstand strong tropical storm winds. Aluminum storm panels are also available, these are also very durable and can resist hurricane force winds. However, these panels are not permanent and must be removed at the end of hurricane season. If you seek a permanent solution then you may want to check out accordion shutters or roll up shutters.

Lexan storm panels are popular in South Florida because once up, you don’t have to take down these clear panels. Being transparent, these allow sunlight to pass through and give you a feeling of openness while enabling vision. Clear Lexan panels; however, can be installed only on openings that aren’t too wide. Five feet openings are the maximum length of openings that can be covered with Lexan storm panels.

Accordion panels slide sideways, are affordable, and robust against hurricanes. These hurricanes lock in the middle. The shutters stack on one side and will not impede your view. A little oiling and cleaning of the tracks is all the maintenance that these shutters need to keep them working for hurricane seasons that follow.

Roll up and roll down shutters are expensive but offer a huge benefit of years of service and compliance with insurance requirements and hurricane security codes across Florida. The movement can be motorized or the shutters can be operated manually. Either way, Alligator Point residents can be assured of a very sturdy solution for their hurricane protection requirements.

Subtropical storm Alberto made landfall in the Florida Panhandle, at Laguna Beach on Monday evening, and Gov. Rick Scott has already declared a state of emergency in all 67 Florida counties. The storm arrived with wind speeds of up to 45 miles per hour, and although it has weakened to a subtropical depression at the time of writing, the danger from rain and flooding is the real issue.

According to forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, hurricane season 2018 in Florida could see up to 16 storms with wind speeds of up to 39 miles or more. Hurricane season is from June 1 to Nov. 1 and the time from the middle of August to late October is when homeowners need to be really prepared to protect their property from storm winds, rains, and floods.

Benefits of roll-down shutters for Florida properties include storm protection, security, energy savings, light control, noise reduction, and privacy.

Hurricane shutters Florida also offers hurricane panel systems that are made up of lightweight overlapping aluminum or lexan panel that are slotted into a header at top and fastened with wingnuts at the bottom. These panels are sturdy and also a cheaper option.

Accordion shutters offer strength, permanent fixing, and smooth operation. These can be handled by one person easily. You can cover balconies with these shutters that offer protection against hurricane force winds, debris, rain, and even attempts at forced entry. These shutters take very little space when not in use, approximately one inch for a linear foot. These shutters are made from extruded aluminum or stainless steel.
