Late-season hurricanes and tropical storms aren’t uncommon in the Atlantic. When these storms move into the Gulf of Mexico, residents of Florida’s west coast and panhandle have to prepare for the possibility of a direct hit. Hurricanes can cause major damage to homes and other buildings due to the high winds and heavy rain they bring. Even tropical storms can have damaging winds and bring inches of rainfall. To protect your home or commercial building from these storms in Gulf County, FL, get the best hurricane shutters available.
How do hurricane shutters protect your home during a storm? Sturdy hurricane shutters from Empire Construction & Development are used to completely cover your windows, doors, patio areas and other openings that may be affected by hurricane-force winds and flying debris. One of the most popular and affordable type of shutter we provide to our customers in Gulf County is the Accordion Shutter.
These durable aluminum shutters are installed on either side of each opening. Accordion shutters can be left open when they’re not needed, folding at the sides of your windows, sliding doors, and other openings. When you need to close your shutters, our accordion hurricane shutters glide along a built-in track to close quickly and easily.
When choosing a shutter for your home, look for one that is tested and approved to withstand hurricane-force winds and dangerous flying debris. Decorative shutters and plywood may cover your windows but do not provide the level of storm protection that impact rated shutters provide. Our accordion hurricane shutters and other storm protection products are designed and tested to withstand high wind and impact. Our accordion shutters adhere to the strongest wind codes in the country and can effectively secure your windows and doors in Gulf County.
