Hurricane shutters are the most popular solution chosen by the homeowners and are the most economical. Nevertheless, the impact of hurricane windows and doors are also very popular because of the extra benefits of convenience, enhanced security, improved energy efficiency, sound proofing and its attractiveness over the blinds.
The least expensive systems is plywood; they offer a higher degree of protection, but it takes a long time to establish. First, understand that your security: it’s not just shards of glass from the broken windows, which are dangerous – your roof blowing off will really get your attention.
