American Garage Door - Blog


Here in the Gulf Region, we're no strangers to severe storms, including catastrophic hurricanes that can all but gut entire neighborhoods.

In the most severe of storms, you and your family can leave town. But your home (or business), sadly, cannot. If you don't prepare your home properly - through such things as hurricane shutters - you risk losing your property or valuable possessions when Mother Nature unleashes on the Greater New Orleans area.

Just imagine the type of damage that can occur when 30+ mile-per-hour winds funnel through your home.

Outfitting your New Orleans-area home or commercial property with storm panels and rolling shutters will keep your property - including fragile doors and windows - protected from these high winds, minimizing damage and helping you move forward after the storm passes through.

At American Garage Door of Louisiana, we have a wide variety of lightweight, easy-to-install panels that are both durable and aesthetically pleasing. Our rolling shutters are manufactured by Wheatbelt and QMI - leaders in the field - and are available in either electric or crank styles.

Homeowners and business owners in New Orleans, Mandeville, Slidell, Covington, Mandeville, Metairie and beyond have trusted American Garage Door with their hurricane shutter needs for years, and we're honored to be relied upon to provide this incredibly important service to our neighbors in the Greater New Orleans area.

Additional benefits of hurricane shutters - aside from protecting your property from storms

Hurricane shutters from American Garage Door of Louisiana are unquestionably a must-have for any property owner in our region. But aside from storm protection, these shutters also offer other benefits.

When traveling, you can close your shutters to keep would-be intruders from breaking in. Not even a sledgehammer will get these guys into your home!

In addition, our rolling shutters provide tremendous light and heat control. East and west-facing windows and glass doors are notorious for getting beat down with sunlight, which can tax your AC and cause your electric bill to sky rocket.

But closing your shutters even part way will let in plenty of light yet dramatically cut down on the amount of radiant heat that pours into your home.

A partner for life in protecting your Louisiana home from storms and other dangers

Here at American Garage Door, we're known for helping our neighbors with all of their garage door needs. But we're so much more than garage doors. As a specialist in hurricane shutters, we can help you choose the best model to fit your needs.
