Accordion shutters have become very popular with homeowners because they offer protection in a number of ways. These strong devices not only provide functionality, but they also add a good dose of attractiveness. They look cozy and are available in a rainbow of colors to match the exterior of any home and, in so doing, enhance curb appeal.
Traditional awnings or shutters are more aesthetic than functional. While they are lighter in weight and do offer architectural appeal and shade, they are not as sturdy and tough as accordion shutters, which are designed to withstand intense sunlight, heavy winds and storms. They are made with robust materials and can be used on many types of siding, including brick, stucco and timber.
Because these shutters become a moving, permanent fixture on your home, accurate measuring is essential in ensuring they work properly. Ideally, the person who will do this best should be someone who works for the company from which you are ordering. If you do it yourself and youβre a fraction of an inch off in your measurement, the apparatus may not work.
Even home insurance companies like accordion shutters because of their strength and durability, plus the fact that they protect occupants and furnishings from harsh UV rays and storm damage. If properly measured and professionally installed, they should last for many years.
