Are Hurricane Shutters Useful in Columbia?

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

Strong winds, flying debris and torrential rain can wreak havoc on your home. Hurricane shutters are the most useful kind of security. They protect your windows and doors, the most susceptible points of your residence during heavy winds. They also help shield your residence from thieves after the storm dissipates.

If you’re looking to add them to your residence, 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 faced with. They’re also only a phone call away, so you can depend on them to assist you during the process, from free consultation to professional installation.

Let’s discuss how hurricane shutters protect your home and the range of types you can pick from.

How Hurricane Shutters Protect Your Home

Hurricane shutters halt debris from cracking your windows. When your windows shatter, they can force the air pressure within your home to rise and your roof to give in. 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 safeguard your house in a similar way. The shutters lay against your windows or doors, forming a secure barrier that can also enhance energy efficiency and keep burglars out.

When you use permanent hurricane shutters, you won’t have to spend time installing storm panels, which can weigh a lot and require a lot of room when they’re not in use. You also won’t need any plywood, which can give some defense if need be, but isn’t the wisestsolution. You also won’t need to get impact-resistant windows, which are expensive.

Types of Hurricane Shutters

At Louver Shop of Columbia, we only have the best hurricane protection products for your home. All our shutters are made here in the United States, so you can rest easy knowing your shutters will deliver protection for a long time.

Here are the four types we customize:

  • Rolling Hurricane Shutters—If you choose a motorized operating system, these top-of-the-line shutters can be rolled down rapidly with just the tap of a button. Some models can withstand winds over 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 include with our proprietary 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 house, this is an excellent way to have 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 manufactured from strong aluminum. You can keep them open on calm days and secure them against windows and doors when a hurricane is predicted.
  • Storm Louvered Shutters—These shutters have the appearance of wood colonial shutters, which work with a big variety of house kinds, but are an outstanding protection against hurricanes. Storm Louvered Shutters are made from strong aluminum and can be bolstered with storm bars for added protection.
