At the other end of the spectrum, one has plywood pieces that are inexpensive and perfectly suited for DIY projects but are not tested for hurricane protection. Colonial shutters are in the mid-price range with the benefit of being used for really wide widths. They can accommodate special shapes. But cannot be incorporated during the construction phase. Moreover, these shutters can only be opened and closed from the outside. Storm panels are cheap; only plywood is cheaper than these panels. These panels can be fitted across an unlimited width. These shutters are strong but putting them up and then taking them down can be a lengthy process.
