Many people like to live near the Atlantic Ocean and Rivieras location along the Atlantic coast makes it a probable spot for landfall during the active hurricane season. South Florida has not received a direct hit from a major storm in decades but even a storm that is classified as a Tropical Storm can bring winds that exceed 70 miles per hour. Winds at this strength are still strong enough to send debris flying throughout residential areas, which is why Storm Ready aims to help Riviera Beach residents equip their homes with the latest and strongest commercially available storm shutters.

Accordion shutters are our most commonly requested type of storm shutters. These lightweight shutters are designed to withstand the strongest of winds, and are quick and easy to deploy and retract. Roll-up hurricane shutters work in a similar sense as a garage door, except are “beefed up” to take a beating from hurricane strength windows. Roll-up shutters are permanently mounted above each window and door, and are deployed and locked into place automatically, or manually by using a hand crank. This style of hurricane shutter is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners who are away from their home for extended periods of time, as they offer an additional level of security while the home is unoccupied. For a more budget friendly, yet strong level of protection, Storm panels can be mounted to the door and window openings of your Riviera Beach home. These panels, cut to shape to fit different sized windows and doors, are temporary shutters that must be hung before the storm and removed and stored away afterwards. Our installation team will professionally anchor and secure the mounting points around each opening of your home, and can be scheduled to hang the panels in advance of a storm approaching. Bahama shutters are a very popular option for storm protection on homes. These tropical-style shutters are permanently affixed over windows, and in addition to protecting windows from flying debris, can also provide energy-efficiency benefits by blocking strong sun rays. Storm fabric is the perfect solution for homes with pool enclosures. This UV resistant screen material is removable, so as a storm approaches, the strong winds will safely pass through your enclosure’s structure rather than beating down on screens and potentially ripping them.
