They are simple to maintain and easy to close. Like all of our Hurricane products, our Colonial Shutters have been engineered to meet the most stringent wind codes in the country and have been reviewed and accepted by the Miami-Dade County Product Control Division, Florida Building Code, and the International Building Code.
I purchased a full set of accordion shutters for my home in the fall of 2021. My house is brick do it posed unique mounting challenges. Additionally two of my windows a arched. The customer service staff had the chief production engineer call me directly to insure I measured correctly for my unique install. The shutters arrived in about two weeks. I started with the smallest window to get used to the install. The most difficult part was drilling through the brick facing with a hammer drill to get to the wood structure behind. Each part was marked to match the inventory sheet. They all fit perfect! I added two addition locking rods for the top track and the shutters only came with ones for the bottom. This is probably overkill, but I do live in Hurricane alley. This entire job cost me around $5000 including the 5 masonry bits I went through. This was less than a third the cost to have it “Professionally” done. Additionally, I added vinyl track inserts to keep dirt and water out of the bottom tracks. Very inexpensive and you can cut to size. If you have basic carpentry skills you can this. Watch the videos and measure correctly.

Our Bahama shutters are up and we love them! Our neighbors thinks the pop of color lifts up the neighborhood.
I attached a photo.
We want to paint our vinyl house shutters the same color. Do you know how we can match it? Is this color transferable to other paints? Is there a formula number?
Thanks again. We had a wonderful experience working with you and Empire.
