Roll-Down Shutters in Bay St. Louis Mississippi

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

On August 29, 2005 at ten o’clock in the morning, Hurricane Katrina made its final landfall near Bay St. Louis, at the mouth of the Pearl River. At twelve feet above sea level, the town is the highest point on the entire Gulf of Mexico coastline, but when Katrina hit land with a 28-foot storm surge, Bay St Louis was devastated. Only the western edge of the city didn’t see the huge surge from Katrina, and were somewhat spared from the flood waters. The gorgeous row of historic houses along the pristine beach, however, were destroyed; after the flood waters receded, only pieces were left of the fine architecture.

Before Katrina, Bay St Louis had pristine beaches, a healthy tourist economy, and lots of restaurants and shops. Afterward, the entire city nearly wiped out, the tourist industry was dead, and there were hardly any restaurants to go to. The Bay St. Louis Bridge was also damaged, with many bridge sections missing or fallen. The destroyed bridge was replaced, and the new bridge was awarded America’s Transportation Award. The new bridge features a pedestrian bridge alongside, with an art walk featuring the works of local artists. And currently the damaged underground utility structure in Bay St. Louis is receiving a total modernization and replacement.

When Bay St Louis began the long, hard work of replacing and re-building new homes, storm shutters were almost always added for hurricane protection. When you want to defend your home against a storm, more than anything, shutters are essential; whether you choose Colonial shutters, accordion shutters, roll-down shutters, or Bahama shutters, they keep the storm out of your house. The shutters are made from metals like aluminum, as well as from wood materials. When shutters are installed, the glass is covered so that it will not break or shatter during the storm, either from the wind, wind-borne debris, or pressure changes of the storm.

Hurricane shutters are well-known as a home protection, but if you own a business and install roll-down shutters, they can actually serve the purpose of security, as well. Roll-down shutters not only defend your home or business from a tropical storm, they can also keep unwanted intruders out as well. Just roll your shutters down at night, and your home or business is secure and protected. The glass can’t be broken, and intruders can’t enter.

Hurricane shutters are essential for your home or business if you live somewhere like Bay St. Louis. Storms hit the shore on a regular basis, and no matter what kind you choose, make sure that you protect your home today.

Security Shutters for Florida Residents

Monday, May 3rd, 2010
We all know that shutters are used to prevent windows against the effects of high winds, rain, and flying objects during a storm, but there are other benefits to having your home custom-fit for security shutters. How do security shutters keep your home safe? Part of owning a home is making sure that it is safe from unwanted intruders, whether you are at home or on vacation. The windows are the focal point of  the home, and the window treatments on them have a great deal to do with how easily accessible your home is. One of the most reliable methods to prevent and discourage intruders is to install quality security shutters. They are so valuable to you, in fact, that some insurance companies reduce your homeowner’s insurance fees when you install security shutters on your home.  Installing security shutters to your home also adds to its’ intrinsic value.
Just a few of the benefits of security shutters for Florida residents:
  • Secures against break-ins
  • Protection from hurricanes and other types of storms
  • Protection against extreme temperatures and the damaging sun fade that comes with it
  • Reduces annoying outside noise
  • Potential savings on homeowner’s insurance

How to Protect Your Home with Security Shutters

Monday, May 3rd, 2010
Owning a home comes with unique responsibilities, and one of those responsibilities is to protect your home. Security shutters can help with this, and custom-fit security shutters have some unique benefits that you may not be aware of.
  • Protect your home against hurricanes and other storms
  • Protection against noise pollution
  • Protect your home against break-ins
  • Protect your home and contents from the damaging effects of the sun
  • Protect the value of your home
Installing security shutters protects the windows of your home against high winds and rain associated with a storm and that is their most common use, but there are other benefits to having your home custom-fit for security shutters. In what other ways can security shutters protect your home?  You might be surprised by the answer.
Security shutters, when closed, block excessive noise and protect you against noise pollution. Once closed, your home is an oasis of peace and quiet.
Security shutters protect you against break-ins. It’s an unfortunate fact of life that nicer homes are susceptible to break-ins. One of the most reliable methods to prevent and discourage break-ins is to install custom-fit security shutters. One look at your security shutters and potential thieves know that it will be much harder to break into your home, and that, of course, is a deterrent.
Security shutters protect your home from sun damage. Living in warmer climates has many advantages, but sun damage is not one of them. Security shutters keep out the harsh rays of the sun, and cut down on the damaging effects.
Security shutters protect the value of your home. Homes with security shutters tend to sell for higher prices, and are one of the top home improvements suggested by realty professionals before listing your home for sale. They are also valuable to you because some insurance companies will actually reduce your homeowner’s insurance fees when you have custom-fit security shutters installed on your home.
Security shutters are the ultimate home protection device, and shrewd buyers are aware of their worth.  They protect your home in surprising ways, add to your home’s value, and may even save you money on insurance fees. Install them today.
