While the options for hurricane shutters may seem to be all the same, there is a significantly difference between each style. Accordion shutters are our most commonly requested style of storm shutters, due in part to their ease of use by the homeowner. Mounted to the sides of your windows or doors, accordion shutter are easily deployed by one person by simply pulling them across, then locking them into place. After the storm passes, they are equally as easy to stow back away. Roll-up hurricane shutters offer a more secure level of defense against hurricane force winds, and require very little, if any effort to deploy. Storm Ready offers Royal Palm Beach homeowners with the option of an automatic-deploy roll-up storm shutter, that will deploy and lock at the click of a button, as well as a manual version that operates with a small hand crank. Bahama shutters are becoming increasingly popular around South Florida, thanks to their stylish look and added bonus of aiding in energy efficiency within the home. Bahama shutters are available in a variety of colors and remain affixed to your home year-round. Storm panels are the most budget-friendly option for storm shutters while still offering homeowners with the added level of protection they require during a major hurricane. Each panel is made from steel, aluminum, or Lexan, and must be hung over windows or doors before the storm arrives, then removed and stored away until their next use. Storm fabric is the solution for homeowners with screened in pool enclosures and patios. This UV resistant screening is designed to be removed quickly so that as hurricane force winds approach, they can safely pass through the area. Once the winds have subsided, the screens can easily be reattached to allow for bug and critter-free outdoor living.
