When it comes to protecting your home from Mother Nature, there are several available options. Storm Shutters have grown increasingly popular over the years for providing protection for doors and windows against powerful weather like hurricanes. However, many homeowners do not know the downsides of these products. Crimsafe Security and Storm Screens present not just an alternative but a better solution to window and door protection from hurricanes and storms. While storm shutters may have been the more common option for homeowners, Crimsafe Storm Screens offer a myriad of benefits to protect your home or business from even the biggest storms. Downsides of Shutters Storm shutters do have multiple benefits, one of which is protecting against weather that can be damaging and dangerous, it’s in their name of course. Shutters can also be painted and customized to a homeowner’s preference. However, storm shutters often present more problems than solutions. Shutters are bulky, hard to store, and difficult to handle. Storm shutters may present some protection against weather-blown debris, however, they do not protect against possible break-ins. The look of shutters can also seem out of place and distracting to the home’s exterior. The installation of shutters also poses an issue, with some designs and models not properly fitting to a home. Like most storm shutters, when it comes to needing their protection, you must roll them down or engage them. This causes a problem if you are not present. Evaluate the pros and cons when planning to protect your home. Make sure you are getting what you need and your money’s worth. The bottom line is, that while storm shutters can protect your home from coming storms, they fall short in many other areas.
