I can invest $40 to $60 per square foot of protection:
If you’re able and willing to spend $40 to $60 per square foot, there are a variety of appealing shutter options that will provide your home with the best hurricane protection. While all shutter options require deployment, the process is much easier and less time consuming than the budget-friendly alternatives. All shutter options provide excellent protection during storms and will help you save on your insurance policy. There are, however, a few notable differences between roll-down shutters, accordion shutters, Bahama impact hurricane shutters, and colonial impact hurricane shutters.
Both roll-down shutters and accordion shutters are easy to deploy with the flip of a switch. Still, because they’re operated mechanically, they require routine maintenance and annual servicing to remain operable. These options will block light from entering your home in the event of a power outage and may also detract from the appearance of your home.
