How Accordion Shutters Can Keep Homes and Commercial Buildings in Bay County, FL Safe from Hurricanes

If you live on the Gulf Coast of Florida, you are no strange to hurricane preparation. Every few years, a storm passes through the Gulf and sometimes makes a direct hit to Florida’s panhandle, as Hurricane Michael did recently. Category 4 and 5 hurricanes can devastate an area and require massive cleanup efforts. If your town is in the projected path of a hurricane, the best thing you can do is to be prepared. If an evacuation is ordered, get to a safe area while you are able to do so. If you’re able to stay in your home, make sure you have water and other supplies. And whether you stay in your home or leave town before a hurricane hits, you can secure your doors and windows with storm shutters from Empire Construction & Development.

Most hurricanes bring high winds and heavy rainfall to an area. These conditions will likely pose a threat to your property in Bay County, FL. Hurricane-force winds can be strong enough to turn ordinary objects into dangerous flying projectiles, which can break uncovered windows. Window damage during a hurricane is dangerous in more ways than one – your home’s structure is compromised, broken glass and flying debris enters your home, and rain pours in. You can protect against wind and water damage with sturdy aluminum accordion shutters, manufactured and sold by Empire Construction & Development.
