The Various Ways to Protect Your Home From a Hurricane

When a hurricane strikes, it is important to protect the people and possessions that you love.  Here at Shutter Shack, we give you the ability to do just that.  We provide you with a number of different protection options to fit your unique needs.  When the next super-storm strikes, no one has you covered better than Shutter Shack.  Here are just some of our hurricane protection products:


Hurricane film is the most affordable way to protect your home from a storm.  With hurricane film, you can turn your windows from one of the most vulnerable to one of the strongest points in your home.  When a storm hits, windows are extremely vulnerable.  Once a window is shattered, it opens a whole new doorway for debris, sand, and water to enter your home and wreak havoc.  With hurricane film, this is not a worry.  The film is designed to hold together the pieces of shattered glass, preventing the window from being wide open and maintaing a barrier between the storm and your home.


Hurricane fabric is the next step up.  Unlike film, which protects the house after glass is broken, the hurricane fabric prevents the window from breaking in the first place.  Not only is it safe, it is easy to deploy.  Simply fasten the fabrics clips into the wall with wing-nuts.  Easy, safe, and effective!


Roll-down shutters are the most effective way to protect your home from a franken-storm.  Although the most pricey of the three, nothing protects better!  They can be controlled with either a romote control or manually with a hand crank.  They can be placed above the window and can also be hidden within the house itself.  Check them out in action here.

As you can see, all three of these hurricane protection options have there benefits.  In case of a storm, it is a great idea to have one of these systems in place.  Before the next super-storm, be prepared with a hurricane system from Shutter Shack, we've got you covered!
