Aesthetic Choices

You’re ready to protect your home and family from storms and burglars; now, which shutter is best for you? There are a few things to consider when choosing a shutter, screen, or panel. The first thing to decide: do you want to enhance the look of your home or maintain the current aesthetics?

Enhance the look of your home
Enhance your home’s aesthetics with Colonial and Bahama Hurricane Shutters. Bahama and Colonial shutters add to the exterior look of your home, and they provide for daily sun control and privacy. These shutters also virtually eliminate the need for interior blinds or curtains. Bahama and Colonial shutters provide quality protection and look great.

Maintain your current look
Rolling Shutters are great for adding protection without changing the look of your home. Rolling shutters are actually built into the architectural design of your home, and virtually disappear when closed. The side tracks and box housing are color-matched to the home’s exterior. StormSafe box housing is also the smallest size available in the industry.

Stainless Steel Mesh Screens are the ultimate in subtle, strong protection. Mesh security screens are slightly heavier than a typical bug screen. Unlike a bug screen, steel security screens are virtually indestructible. The screens can be fabricated to follow the window and door contours of your home. The screen frames are low profile and blend into the trim work.

Accordion Shutters provide effective protection when in the closed position. When open, accordion shutters stack to the side of the window or door. The smaller and more attractive the shutter stacks, the better. The Accordion requires about 1 inch for every 1 foot of track for stacking. The accordion stack can be extended and placed beyond the patio or window openings, to allow for ultimate window views. Accordion shutters are perfect for curved areas, such as outdoor patios and rooms.

StormSafe Clear Panels are the clear choice for protection that will go virtually unnoticed. The clear polycarbonate won’t shatter, rust, or yellow with age. Clear panels can be left up all year or taken down after storm season. The white tracks at the top and bottom of the panel system are permanently mounted. Clear panels are a great alternative to metal panels that create a boarded up appearance.
