Hurricane Shutters: Styles and Options

August 29th, 2015 will be the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina Louisiana and Mississippi residents look back and reflect on the last decade of painful loss and the effort to rebuild. Directly after the 2005 storm, over 600,000 Gulf Coast families were homeless, and for the past decade those that returned have taken measures to prevent future damage to their homes.

One of the most efficient ways to prevent hurricane wind and water damage to a home is to install hurricane shutters. These exterior shutters prevent damage to windows, entry of hurricane debris, and water damage that can be caused by open windows and doors. Hurricane shutters also ease the process of before storm prep by eliminating the need for ply wood coverings over glass windows and doors. Some shutter types, such as roll down hurricane shutters, even include automated options for even more convenient use.

Hurricane Shutter Styles
