Will Hurricane Shutters Protect My Residence in Charleston?

If you have a home in Charleston, you are aware that being able to shield your house during hurricane season is a must.

Strong winds, dangerous debris and heavy rain can wreak havoc on your residence. Hurricane shutters are the best method of protection. They protect your windows and doors, the most vulnerable spots of your home during high winds. They also help guard your house from thieves after the storm dies down.

If you’re looking to add them to your house, our professionals install hurricane shutters in Charleston. What’s even finer is that they are a part of your community, so they know the elements you’re up against. They’re also only a phone call away, so you can rely on them to assist you every step of the way, from free consultation to professional installation.

Let’s go over how hurricane shutters work and the range of kinds you can pick from.

How Hurricane Shutters Shield Your Home

Hurricane shutters halt debris from shattering your windows. When your windows crack, they can cause the air pressure within your house to increase and your roof to give in. The best kinds of hurricane shutters are made from sturdy aluminum that matches Charleston building codes.

Whether you choose storm Bahama, storm louvered or rolling hurricane shutters, all safeguard your residence in a similar way. The shutters fit tightly against your windows or doors, making a strong barrier that can also boost energy efficiency and keep burglars out.

When you buy permanent hurricane shutters, you won’t have to spend time installing storm panels, which can weigh a lot and need a lot of space when they’re in storage. You also won’t need any plywood, which can provide some protection if need be, but isn’t the bestsolution. You also won’t have to get impact-resistant windows, which are costly.

Styles of Hurricane Shutters

At Louver Shop of Charleston, we only offer the best hurricane protection products for your residence. All our shutters are produced here in the U.S., so you can rest easy knowing your shutters will deliver protection for a long time.

Here are the four styles we have:

  • Rolling Hurricane Shutters—If you go with a motorized operating system, these top-of-the-line shutters can be moved rapidly with just the push of a button. Some styles can bear winds in excess of 200 mph. When they’re not needed, they curl into a small housing box above windows or doors. Our custom LouverShield™ Hurricane Shutters include an extra-small housing box, so the shutters don’t stick out from your house. They also include with our special End Retention System, which gets rid of the need for storm bars. On calm days, rolling shutters can also boost your house’s energy efficiency by deflecting the sizzling sun.
  • Storm Bahama Shutters—If you reside in a ocean house, this is a good way to get shade and chilled breezes while still being shielded from hurricanes. Storm Bahama Shutters look like wood Bahama shutters, but they’re hurricane rated because they’re created from sturdy aluminum. You can keep them open on mild days and fold them against windows and doors when a hurricane is approaching.
  • Storm Louvered Shutters—These shutters are similar to wood colonial shutters, which flatter a big selection of home styles, but are an excellent defense against hurricanes. Storm Louvered Shutters are crafted from strong aluminum and can be bolstered with storm bars for additional protection.

Hurricane shutters are a cost-effective approach to keep your home secure while following stringent building codes.
