What to Know About Bahama Shutters
Catastrophic events like Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 and Superstorm Sandy in 2012 are stark reminders of the significant damage a major storm can inflict on the New Jersey coast. If you live in this hurricane-prone region, you need strong, durable shutters that can protect your property and keep your family safe.
Bahama shutters are becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners living in storm and hurricane zones. These uniquely designed shutters provide excellent protection against strong winds and enhance a home’s aesthetic appeal.
Liberty Door and Awning is your one-stop headquarters for Bahama shutters in Ocean County and Monmouth County, NJ.
What Are Bahama Shutters?
Bahama shutters originated in the Caribbean Islands centuries ago to protect a building’s interior against the region’s intense sun and heat. They’re mounted above the window and open at a 45-degree angle to deflect sunlight and allow refreshing breezes to enter a home. Their hinged design enables you to pull them down to shield the window upon the arrival of a storm. Originally made of wood, they now feature durable aluminum construction to provide superior protection from the elements.
What Are the Benefits of Installing Bahama Shutters?
Installing Bahama shutters on your New Jersey home provides:
- Reliable storm protection: The primary purpose of these shutters is to protect a property during a hurricane. They can withstand hurricane-force winds and heavy rain. You won’t have to board up your windows before a storm — all you’ll need to do is close the shutters.
- Light control: Bahama shutters make it easy to regulate the amount of sunlight that enters your home. You can keep them fully opened, partially opened or closed.
- Privacy: The unique design of these shutters allows you to see outside but prevents others from seeing inside your home.
- Shutters as favorable exterior décor: Unlike some other types of aluminum hurricane shutters, these products can enhance a property’s aesthetic appeal. They come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colors, making it easy to find shutters that match the architectural style and décor of your home.
