Because Nova Scotia extends far into the ocean, it’s one of the warmest places in Canada. The ocean helps to moderate the temperature, and thus Nova Scotia doesn’t have an extreme range of temperatures. It has a long, late summer with warm temperatures. Because it protrudes out into the Atlantic, it is prone to tropical storms and hurricanes in this late summer and up into the autumn. There have been about forty of these heavy storms, almost half of them hurricanes, to hit the area since records were kept. That’s about one major storm every three years.
Smart homeowners install hurricane shutters on their homes, and rolling shutters are the most convenient and practical. The external motorized roll up shutters are mounted above the window and they can be custom matched in color and style.
If you have impact-approved glass in your windows and doors, you might believe that you don’t need to add hurricane shutters to stay safe. But this isn’t necessarily true: Impact resistant glass can still break if struck by debris thrown by the high winds during a storm. Storm shutters added to the home will protect your windows further and save you the cost of an expensive replacement or repair job. Rolling shutters are a convenient storm and security protection. They can be easily matched to your home, and are unnoticeable unless you close them. They can be added to existing homes or put on your windows right from the start, and they provide you with superior storm protection. If you live in Nova Scotia and want to protect yourself from the frequent tropical storms and hurricanes that occur there, you should add rolling shutters today. Reduce your damage and provide your home and family with protection and peace of mind.
