Why Accordion Hurricane Shutters May Be the Right Choice for Your Home

Wednesday, July 24th, 2019

If you are searching for hurricane shutters that combine affordability, protection, and ease-of-use, our Accordion Hurricane Shutters are a fantastic solution for your home or business. Whether you’ve lived through 10 hurricanes or one, or none so far, you probably already know that it’s absolutely necessary to prepare your home to withstand a severe storm or hurricane.

At HurricaneShuttersFlorida.com, our Accordion Hurricane Shutters are not only an exceptional choice for windows and doors, but also for securing patios, balconies, terraces, and storefronts with large openings. Covering your windows with plywood just isn’t a convenient alternative to the durability of code-compliant impact-resistant accordion shutters. Installing plywood is a time-consuming, expensive and cumbersome ordeal, which is never a good thing when you’re hurrying to prepare for an approaching storm.

Unprotected windows can lead to expensive damage once the storms roll in. Our top-rated accordion hurricane storm shutters from HurricaneShuttersFlorida.com offer the strength and durability you can rely on to protect your home or business during a storm. Accordion shutters are strong and affordable and come with may benefits, such as:

  •   *  Long-term durability
  •   *  Ease of use
  •   *  No additional locking rod required
  •   *  Less obtrusive than other models
  •   *  Customizable sizes to perfectly fit any door or window
  •   *  Permanent year-round storm and security protection

HurricaneShuttersFlorida.com offers shutters in a variety of popular colors so you don’t need to sacrifice the beauty and aesthetics of your home’s exterior to get the quality protection you want. Accordion shutters provide other benefits including added resale value to your home, energy savings, protection from sun damage to your furniture, drapes and wall art, privacy, security and protection from forced entry, and added insulation to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer months.
