Retrofit Improvements: Hurricane Shutters

During a hurricane or other extreme storm, strong winds can pick up objects, such as building materials, tree limbs, trash cans, and patio furniture. This windborne debris can easily shatter unprotected window and door glass, exposing the building interior and allowing wind and water into the building. In addition to damaging household contents, the wind pressure can break the house apart from the inside by blowing off the roof and the water can lead to significant damage to the house.
