Your home needs storm protection. Homes and other buildings in Dauphin Island, Alabama and other coastal areas along the Gulf of Mexico are particularly vulnerable to Hurricanes. Why? The Gulf of Mexico has the warm water and space for storms to strengthen once they reach it. As hurricanes head towards Dauphin Island and coastal Alabama, their wind speeds may well increase. This can allow even a category 1 or 2 storm to intensify to a major storm (category 3 or higher.) These powerful storms can have wind speeds of 120, 130, even 150 MPH or greater. These high wind speeds call for the best hurricane shutters available – hurricane shutters from Empire Construction & Development.
Which hurricane shutters are right for you? We have a variety of storm protection products for customers in Dauphin Island. When shopping for hurricane shutters, you should look for a product that is:
*Heavy-duty – Some retailers sell decorative shutters, but decorative shutters won’t hold up against the high winds and flying debris a hurricane brings. At Empire Construction & Development, we manufacture accordion hurricane shutters and rolling hurricane shutters out of strong aluminum. Our aluminum storm panels and clear polycarbonate panels are designed with a 2-inch rise panel design that makes them substantially stronger than flat panels or plywood.
*Storm-proof – Don’t waste your time looking at shutters that haven’t been through missile-impact tests and approved by building codes. Fortunately for our customers in Dauphin Island and throughout coastal Alabama, our sturdy accordion shutters, roll-down shutters, and storm panels are tested to endure hurricane conditions and adhere to the most stringent wind codes in the country.
*Easy to use – When a storm is coming, you don’t want to struggle to put up your storm shutters. You don’t want to search for plywood. And you don’t want to worry that your windows aren’t securely covered. Once you have accordion shutters, rolling shutters or storm panels from Empire Construction & Development, you can quickly, easily and completely cover your windows and doors.
