If you have ever purchased homeowners insurance in South Florida, then you’re no doubt aware that many standard plans don’t cover all forms of hurricane damage.
That’s why I always recommend the installation of hurricane shutters. Although some people may take issue with the cost, it’s important to consider hurricane shutters as an investment in the care and protection of your home and family rather than as just another expense.
If you’re unsure of your options, you may find this article in Broward’s Sun Sentinel helpful. It breaks down the different types of shutters in detail (panels, accordions, Colonial, Bahama, roll-down, plywood, etc.) and lists pros and cons for each style. Some are more expensive than others, and some may be more suited to your needs than others; but the important issue here is that you invest in some protection before the next big storm hits.
One of the worst decisions that you could make would be to put off making a decision until you absolutely have to, because at that point, there may not be time enough, or lack of on-hand resources may rob you of your best option.
