Will Hurricane Shutters Defend My Residence in Charleston?

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

Strong winds, airborne debris and torrential rain can wreak havoc on your residence. Hurricane shutters are the best kind of protection. They protect your windows and doors, the most vulnerable areas of your home during high winds. They also help shield your house from thieves after the storm stops.

If you’re looking to add them to your residence, our professionals install hurricane shutters in Charleston. What’s even greater is that they reside in your community, so they realize the conditions you’re faced with. They’re also only a message away, so you can depend on them to support 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 select from.

How Hurricane Shutters Protect Your Home

Hurricane shutters halt debris from shattering your windows. When your windows crack, they can cause the air pressure in your house to go up and your roof to collapse. The best styles 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 house 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 take up a lot of space when they’re in storage. You also won’t need any plywood, which can provide some protection in an emergency, but isn’t the wisestsolution. You also won’t have to get impact-resistant windows, which are pricey.

Kinds of Hurricane Shutters

At Louver Shop of Charleston, we only offer the best hurricane protection products for your home. All our shutters are produced here in the USA, so you can be at peace knowing your shutters will provide protection for years.

Here are the four styles we have:

  • Rolling Hurricane Shutters—If you select a motorized operating system, these top-of-the-line shutters can be rolled down rapidly with just the press of a button. Some styles can withstand winds in excess of 200 mph. When they’re not in use, they curl into a small housing box above windows or doors. Our custom LouverShield™ Hurricane Shutters have 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 residence’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 guarded from hurricanes. Storm Bahama Shutters look like wood Bahama shutters, but they’re hurricane rated because they’re constructed from sturdy aluminum. You can keep them open on pleasant days and fold them against windows and doors when a hurricane is approaching.
  • Storm Louvered Shutters—These shutters have the appearance of wood colonial shutters, which flatter a large range of residence styles, but are a great defense against hurricanes. Storm Louvered Shutters are crafted from reinforced aluminum and can be fortified with storm bars for additional protection.
