Some parts of the country just have to be more prepared for hurricanes than others. The southeastern United States on the Gulf of Mexico is one of these areas. If you’ve lived in Louisiana long enough, odds are that you’ve been through a storm or two. Property owners in St. Bernard Parish can take steps to adequately prepare their homes, rental properties and businesses from storm damage by installing well-built hurricane shutters on their windows and doors.
Why do you need hurricane shutters? Quality hurricane shutters, first and foremost, protect you from danger during a storm. When a hurricane makes landfall, it can have wind speeds of 100 MPH or greater. These high winds can cause uncovered windows to shatter or break from the impact of flying objects. Hurricanes and tropical storms can bring heavy rain and strong winds to St. Bernard Parish and you won’t want to be dealing with broken windows in these dangerous conditions. Accordion shutters, rolling shutters, and storm panels from Empire Construction & Development can help you protect your windows from hurricane damage in Louisiana.
Should hurricane shutters be impact-rated? Yes, if you intend to use them for storm protection. When shopping around for hurricane shutters, you may come across decorative shutters. While these shutters may have the look you want, decorative shutters are not made to withstand hurricane-force winds and flying debris. Fortunately for homeowners in St. Bernard Parish, Empire Construction & Development manufactures and sells hurricane shutters that look great, complement any home, and provide dependable protection against hurricanes. Our accordion hurricane shutters, roll-down hurricane shutters, and storm panels are designed to withstand high wind speeds and tested for impact-resistance. Storm protection products from Empire Construction & Development comply with the most stringent wind codes in the country, and protect homes and offices in some of the most storm-prone areas of the country.
