Hurricane Season is Quickly Approaching! Be Prepared Now!

Preparing early for hurricane season with storm shutters is an excellent idea! Here's how you can effectively prepare:

  1. Inspect and Maintain: Start by inspecting your existing storm shutters, if you have them, for any damage or signs of wear and tear. Repair or replace any damaged parts as needed to ensure they provide maximum protection when needed.

  2. Install Storm Shutters: If you don't already have storm shutters, consider installing them on your windows and doors. There are various types of storm shutters available, including accordion, roll-down, Bahama, colonial, and panel shutters. Choose the type that best suits your needs and budget.

  3. Measure and Order: Take accurate measurements of your windows and doors to ensure you order the correct size of storm shutters. It's essential to have the shutters in place before hurricane season begins, so don't wait until the last minute to order them.

  4. Practice Installation: If you're installing storm shutters yourself, practice installing them before hurricane season starts. This will help you become familiar with the process and ensure you can put them up quickly and correctly when a storm is approaching.

  5. Securely Store: If your storm shutters are removable, make sure you have a secure and easily accessible place to store them when they're not in use. Proper storage will help prolong the life of the shutters and ensure they're ready to use when needed.

  6. Educate Family Members: Make sure everyone in your household knows how to install and remove the storm shutters safely. Assign specific responsibilities to each person, so everyone knows what to do in case of an approaching storm.

  7. Inspect Regularly: Throughout hurricane season, periodically inspect your storm shutters to ensure they remain in good condition. Repair any damage promptly to maintain their effectiveness.



By preparing early and taking these steps to install and maintain storm shutters, you'll be better equipped to protect your home and family during hurricane season.
