South Florida comes under the hurricane zone. If you are a resident of South Florida then right now you are in the midst of the hurricane season. And if you are the prudent sort then you have hurricane shutters installed. If not, then please do. A hurricane does not have to be one like Andrew or Katrina to cause damage. You can lose your home and hearth to hurricane winds blowing at 200mph. And if you are negligent about putting up protection and have house insurance, then you are giving the insurance companies a perfect excuse for refusing a claim.
There are many hurricane shutter protection companies in South Florida and many are rated very highly by the Better Business Bureau. Choose a company that promises you good after-sales service that includes not just replacement but also repairs. An installer that is also a product manufacturer means that you can get the product at a discounted rate. You can look up such companies online and request a free quote. You should check out the product warranties. A house with proper hurricane shutter protection increases the resale value of your home. Do not forget to get your garage protected because vehicle damage is a costly expense and it does not take much for vehicle damage to happen.
