Living in a port city like Port St. Lucie, FL has its benefits. The ocean breeze soothes and the sunsets are gorgeous. However, if you’re on the Gulf Coast then every hurricane season comes with the threat of a potentially dangerous event – a big hurricane that is powerful enough to smash windows, uproot roofs, fell trees and poles and flood inland waterways.
The most important precaution that Port St. Lucie residents can take is to install accordion shutters at home. Of all the shutter types, accordion shutters offer the best value for money protection. Check out quotes on our sister site and we can assure you that our offer will match up to the best anywhere online. Our hurricane shutters are compliant with the building codes for your county and are installed by licensed personnel.
They are not only easy to install but also easy to use, this makes them a great option for residential and commercial properties. A house protected by accordion shutters not only will attract lower insurance premiums but will also fetch higher dollars should you choose to put it on sale. Our shutters will work for not only properties on the ground floor but also for windows in high rises. They can be securely locked from the inside and the outside.
The shutters are constructed using strong slats made from extruded aluminum. They can withstand winds of up to 180 miles per hour. When not in use, they fold neatly at the side of doors and windows without either obstructing passage or your view.
They work equally well for patios and garages as they do for other doors. The insulation that occurs between the shutters and the windows results in a pocket of warm air that helps bring down heating costs during the colder months.
