Despite growing concern about natural disasters, a recent study shows that 64% of Americans are still underprepared for severe weather, including hurricanes and tornados. While preparation can occur in small ways throughout the home (emergency food rations, evacuation plans), the first line of defense is the building’s exterior.

Hurricane shutters and storm panels can give a home an enormous advantage when faced with severe weather conditions. These heavy wind and element-resistant covers may be lowered in place to shield doors and windows from the devastating effects of the elements. Many businesses also benefit from the protection of hurricane shutters and storm panels, utilizing them to cover large glass storefronts and entryways. As an added benefit, these reinforced layers also deter theft and vandalism, safeguarding inventory and keeping the store’s façade in pristine condition.

American Garage Door offers top quality hurricane shutters and storm panels from well-respected producers such as Wheatbelt and QMI. Convenient, lightweight, and easy to install, these preventative home and business necessities maintain a neat, professional and aesthetically pleasing façade. Available as either storm panels or rolling shutters, products offered by American Garage Door are always made with the highest quality foam core extruded aluminum slats. Electric and hand-crank options are available to fit any purpose, any person, and any budget.

Having high-grade, professional hurricane shutters and storm panels installed on a home or business is not enough. These crucial first-line defenses must be properly serviced and maintained to insure they keep residents and property safe. 

On a long enough timeline, danger of damage to the residence or business from environmental or human factors is inevitable. Property owners can spend a fraction of the potential cost of this loss and gain valuable peace of mind by having hurricane shutters and storm panels professionally installed and maintained.
