Excellent Product!   Thank you Ryan.   Please pass my thanks along to Bill and the rest of the team as well.   I am really impressed with the system we received.   Thank you all for continuing that quality product with good support.

My Accordion Shutters are up!   The windows took about 1.5 hours each. The shutters all fit very nicely, the material and finish is excellent, and they look very good. They are not intrusive at all.  I am pleased, my wife is pleased ( you know that is important) and my neighbor, who helped me was impressed based upon his window/door experience.
Good job! Thanks.

Hello everyone at Empire, Marcus from St. John here. 
This project is being done by me and 1 helper, and we're going back much stronger, with many more tap cons, and wedge anchors than the original installers had done.
Your rolling shutters are amazing, great quality and workmanship. Everything is going great so far!

David G. - July - 2018 - Sarasota, Florida

We wanted to self-install so we bought accordions and roll downs from Empire Construction.  We measured our window and patio and sent Empire the specs.  The shutters were an exact match.  Installation is very doable for two reasonably mechanical people.  In this case it was only one mechanical person and some extra hands. The accordions were a breeze as installation was mostly marking holes for spots, drilling holes, and screwing them in.  Our accordions have locking pins that hold them open and act as a second lock when closed. Even if a projectile breaks the lock the rods will keep the shutters closed.  These shutters are Bertha HV1. They are High Velocity Hurricane Zone Approved. Having seen a wide range of shutters we are extremely happy with the quality of the product we received!!

I installed fourteen aluminum accordion shutters which I purchased from Empire Construction.  I could not be happier with my choice.  The shutters are made very well and are powder-coated.  The purchase included all of the required hardware which was powder-coated to match the shutters.
  The company is very customer-oriented.  Michael and his staff were wonderful.  They were attentive, helpful, and a delight to work with.  The installation video on the website made the installation  very easy. I highly recommend Empire Construction to anyone considering a purchase of hurricane shutters.  Thanks again.  Please say Hi to everyone,
