Storm Shutters Protect in Winter Storms Too
With cold winter weather just around the corner, the process of preparing your home for the winter months will soon be underway. After you have winterized your home, caulking around windows and doors, weather-stripping, and cutting back trees and branches that might fall on your home, it is time to install storm shutters.
How can storm shutters protect homes and businesses during winter storms?
Storm Shutters help keep your home safe during winter storms and provide many benefits too:
Reduce heat loss inside the home with storm shutters. They are a barrier against the cold outside, and a valuable layer of protection against heat loss. You lose heat through cracks around windows and doors, even when caulked and insulated. Storm shutters reduce this loss, helping keep your home warm and cozy and protecting against the freezing weather. Storm shutters can even help keep the heat trapped in your home for a longer period of time during a power outage.
Protect your windows against wind-borne debris and object impacts thrown by high winds. Even falling trees and snow-heavy branches can shatter unprotected windows. Hurricane-rated Storm shutters that are impact tested for hurricanes and tropical storms are also effective against flying debris thrown by a winter storm.
Save you money on your home insurance: Many insurance companies will give you a break on your policy if you add storm shutters to your home. They make your home much more secure, reducing the risk of damage during winter storms, and and leading to possible savings for your insurance company and you. Check with your insurance company to see if adding storm shutters will affect your rates.
Storm shutters are a good idea for any home. And not just for hurricane season and tropical storms. Adding them to your home reduces the risk of damage during many types of storms and can absolutely help protect your home from the effects of a winter storm.
