Buy Aluminum Storm Shutters Online

Thursday, August 8th, 2019

As we head into August, hurricane season is approaching its peak activity point. Don’t let the calm weather catch you off guard. Historically, June and July have had, on average, only one named storm per month since 1950. August and September are when you can expect the hurricane switch to be flipped. August experiences almost double the number of named storms as June and July combined.

Many people think since hurricane season is halfway over and they haven’t experienced anything yet, nothing is going to happen for the rest of the season. That thought process may persuade home and business owners to put off  purchasing hurricane shutters. Then, a hurricane hits and they are forced to choose less durable options such as plywood or putting tape across the windows to prevent them from shattering. Neither are optimal solutions.

Aluminum storm panels from HurricaneShuttersflorida.com are a very affordable option for all business and homeowners. In addition to being the most affordable and durable hurricane shutters, they don’t create a lot of clutter and wasted storage space  when not in use – unlike plywood which will rot, mold and warp if left outside or in a dark and damp storage space. Our aluminum hurricane storm panels sold at HurricaneShuttersflorida.com are uniquely designed to be compact and to stack neatly in your garage.

Ten shutters stack to about 1 inch in depth for easy space-saving storage in your garage or shed. Don’t decide you need hurricane shutters and protection when it’s nearly too late. And don’t overpay  for storm protection. When your home or business requires quality protection, get your aluminum storm shutters at factory-direct prices when you shop online at HurricaneShuttersFlorida.com.

Do I Really Need Hurricane Shutters for My Windows?

Monday, August 5th, 2019

It’s easy to overlook hurricane preparedness when you haven’t experienced a hurricane in several years. But, if you live in an area prone to hurricane activity, you already know the devastating injuries and property damage a major hurricane can leave in its wake. It’s important to take the necessary steps and a reasonable amount of time to prepare your home and family before a storm strike. Many homeowners neglect the seriousness of properly securing their home for a major storm, or else they do so hastily when a storm is zeroing in. 

Some home and business owners consider plywood an adequate material for preparing their home for a hurricane. They inaccurately assume that as long as their windows are covered, they’ll be protected during a storm. However, plywood has many drawbacks. First of all, plywood is not truly impact resistant. During a hurricane, objects and debris can be thrown around by the forceful storm winds at over one hundred miles an hour. Plywood tends to absorb moisture and can soften and weaken over time. Plywood isn’t actually a solid piece of wood. It is made of many smaller pieces pressed together giving it a porous surface. This porosity can cause plywood to act as a sponge when it comes to water absorption. The porous surface allows the wood to be flexible which might be useful for construction purposes because it allows walls to have some flex to them, but during a hurricane, porous wet wood panels is the last thing you want protecting your glass windows.

When exposed to water, plywood loses its structural integrity and never fully returns to its original state once it dries. That’s why most plywood ends up in the landfill after a storm.  Another downfall of plywood is that it can chip, splinter and peel. It’s also heavy and cumbersome to handle. When not in use and being stored outside or in a humid garage, it can attract termites and grow mildew and mold. Once that happens, the plywood should be rendered useless as a means of storm protection for windows and you’ll need to call an exterminator to manage the termites. Additionally, If you choose plywood for your windows, you will probably need to buy it every year which can get costly and very time-consuming when you consider your time spent standing in long lines at the hardware store waiting to purchase plywood.

The safest and most cost and time effective solution for storm protection for your home or commercial property is to invest in durable factory direct hurricane shutters from www.hurricaneshuttersflorida.com, a leading manufacturer and online seller of quality hurricane shutters and storm protection products.  At Hurricane Shutters Florida, there are many different buying options when it comes to impact hurricane shutters. Hurricane Shutters Florida manufactures and ships many of its quality hurricane shutters all over the world, including rolling shutters, Bahama shutters, aluminum shutters, storm panels, and colonial shutters

 The convenience of buying factory direct hurricane shutters online means that one-time purchase will protect your home indefinitely. Our hurricane shutters are built in accordance with the Miami-Dade County product control division, Florida Building Code, and the International Building Code and can withstand highspeed projectiles aimed at your windows. Our Storm Shutters are also designed without a flat surface area to help disperse the impact at the point of contact.

Plywood is flat and when something hits it at highspeed, all of that impact force is directed at the initial point of contact. This means smaller items traveling at a high velocity can be more damaging to plywood than a bigger item projecting blunt force. A large surface area can more evenly distribute impact force, but a smaller surface absorbs all the force into a much more concentrated contact point, weakening its structure. Once there is a weakening or break in the plywood, air rushes in and can pull the board right off your home and leave your windows and interior exposed and vulnerable to the elements outside.
