Are Hurricane Shutters Useful in Columbia?

If you live in Columbia, you know that being able to protect your home during hurricane season is important.

Strong winds, flying debris and torrential rain can wreak havoc on your home. Hurricane shutters are the most useful method of protection. They cover your windows and doors, the weakest points of your house during extreme winds. They also help shield your residence from thieves after the storm dissipates.

If you’re looking to add them to your house, our specialists install hurricane shutters in Columbia. What’s even better is that they are a part of your community, so they understand the weather you’re up against. They’re also only a message away, so you can rely on them to support you throughout the process, from free consultation to professional installation.

Let’s discuss how hurricane shutters shield your home and the varying types you can pick from.

How Hurricane Shutters Protect Your Home

Hurricane shutters prevent debris from cracking your windows. When your windows crack, they can drive the air pressure in your home to rise and your roof to collapse. The best kinds of hurricane shutters are made from reinforced aluminum that fits Columbia building codes.

Whether you select storm Bahama, storm louvered or rolling hurricane shutters, all protect your residence in a similar way. The shutters lay against your windows or doors, forming a secure barrier that can also increase energy efficiency and keep burglars out.

When you install permanent hurricane shutters, you won’t have to waste time getting up storm panels, which can weigh a lot and require a lot of area when they’re put away. You also won’t need any plywood, which can give some defense in an emergency, but isn’t the bestsolution. You also won’t have to get impact-resistant windows, which are expensive.

Types of Hurricane Shutters

At Louver Shop of Columbia, we only offer the best hurricane protection products for your residence. All our shutters are created here in the United States, so you can rest easy knowing your shutters will provide protection for years.

Here are the four types we offer:

  • Rolling Hurricane Shutters—If you choose a motorized operating system, these top-of-the-line shutters can be moved rapidly with just the tap of a button. Some models can bear winds in excess of 200 mph. When they’re not in use, they roll into a small housing box above windows or doors. Our custom LouverShield™ Hurricane Shutters feature an extra-small housing box, so the shutters coordinate with your residence. They also feature with our special End Retention System, which eliminates the need for storm bars. On calm days, rolling shutters can also boost your home’s energy efficiency by stopping the hot sun.
  • Storm Bahama Shutters—If you have a coastal residence, this is a great way to get shade and refreshing breezes while still being guarded from hurricanes. Storm Bahama Shutters are like wood Bahama shutters, but they’re hurricane rated since they’re made from sturdy aluminum. You can keep them open on calm days and secure 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 big variety of house kinds, but are an outstanding safeguard against hurricanes. Storm Louvered Shutters are crafted from strong aluminum and can be bolstered with storm bars for added protection.

Hurricane shutters are a budget-friendly approach to keep your home safe while adhering to strict building codes.
