Storm shutters aren't necessary in all areas of the country. If you live in a hurricane-prone location, however, they are a wise choice. Destructive high winds can cause a lot of damage to your home in Liberty, MO, so it's important to take the time to protect your house before a storm hits. There are so many options from which to choose, so let's take a look at some of the best selections that are available.

Types of Permanent Shutters for Storm Protection

Colonial: The colonial look is so charming that many people install this option for decorative purposes. They are very effective, however, in protecting your windows during high winds. Before a storm hits, you simply unlatch them from both sides of the window and securely bolt them in the middle.
Bahama: These are mounted at the top of the window and pulled down from an awning position. They are securely fastened below the window. This option is very effective at keeping out the hot sun as well.
Rolling Type: These can be kept out of sight on the off-season. They roll out and then back and are stored in a bolted box above the window.
Accordion: This style, which is kept inside a box that is bolted to both sides of the window, can be seamlessly pulled and secured across the window or even a door.

Temporary Choices for Protection
Storm panels are a temporary choice to consider as well. When a hurricane threat is in the forecast, these panels are placed on a steel channel that has been bolted at the top and bottom of each window. This channel can be unbolted in the times when it isn't required.
Protect your home against high winds during storm season. If you do sustain some damage during a storm, contact a storm damage restoration company as soon as possible.
