Three Reasons to Install Hurricane Shutters
There isn’t even a shadow of a doubt in our minds: if you are a Florida home owner, this blog is for you. We are so certain about Hurricane Shutters that we have come up with three unique reasons as to why you should consider installing them.
Reason 1: According to the Sun Sentinel, hurricane shutters “remain the most economical solution for most homeowners to protect window openings in a storm.” Having them installed is a relatively inexpensive solution to a potentially expensive problem.
Reason 2: Ease of Use. One of the benefits of investing in shutters is that once they have been installed, it is easy to put them in place when a storm is on the way. No need to go stand in line for sheets of plywood at the hardware store and then recruit neighbors to help you nail them over your windows.
Reason 3: The Law of Averages In 2004, four storms struck South Florida in one year: Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne. Because Florida has been lucky to have relatively quiet hurricane seasons since then, emergency management officials worry that the Law of Averages may be against them: “Can we get another season like that? Odds are low. Except that odds were low that Frances and Jeanne would strike at nearly the same spot and exactly three weeks apart” Palm Beach Post Taking this into consideration, Florida residents should be ready to face another storm at any time, and they should start by making their homes ready.
With the National Weather Service’s early outlook; for the 2014 season calling for “11 named storms, including five hurricanes, two of which are predicted to attain major hurricane status,” the time has never been better to consider installing hurricane shutters in your home.
