Defend with Confidence: Choosing the Best Storm Shutters for Your Home or Business with Lafferty Aluminum & Screening

Whether you're a homeowner or a business owner, preparing for severe weather is a crucial aspect of safeguarding your property. In this comprehensive blog, we'll guide you through the options available and help you make an informed decision on the best storm shutters for your home or business. At Lafferty Aluminum & Screening, our commitment is to provide top-quality solutions that offer both functionality and peace of mind.

The Importance of Storm Shutters

Before delving into the best storm shutter options, let's briefly explore why storm shutters are essential for both homes and businesses. Storm shutters act as a first line of defense against the destructive forces of hurricanes, tropical storms, and severe weather conditions. By providing a protective barrier for windows and doors, storm shutters help prevent damage to property, reduce the risk of injury, and ensure the safety of occupants.

Accordion Shutters - Versatile and Reliable

Accordion shutters stand out as a versatile and reliable option for storm protection. The accordion-like design allows these shutters to fold neatly to the sides of windows and doors when not in use, minimizing storage space. When deployed, accordion shutters create a robust barrier against high winds, flying debris, and heavy rainfall. Lafferty Aluminum & Screening offers customizable accordion shutters to match the aesthetics of your home or business, providing both functionality and style.

Roll-Down Shutters - Effortless Operation

Roll-down shutters offer a convenient and efficient solution for storm protection. These shutters feature a roll-up mechanism that allows for effortless deployment when needed. With manual and motorized options available, roll-down shutters ensure quick and easy storm preparation. Lafferty Aluminum & Screening provides high-quality roll-down shutters crafted from durable materials to withstand the toughest weather conditions, ensuring long-lasting performance for your home or business.

Colonial Shutters - Classic Charm with Modern Resilience

For those seeking a blend of classic charm and modern resilience, colonial shutters are an excellent choice. These shutters feature a decorative design reminiscent of traditional window shutters, adding a touch of elegance to your property. Colonial shutters are hinged on the sides and can be easily closed before a storm. Lafferty Aluminum & Screening offers colonial shutters in various styles and finishes, allowing you to customize the appearance while maintaining superior storm protection.

Bahama Shutters - Stylish and Functional

Bahama shutters combine style and functionality, offering a unique aesthetic appeal along with effective storm protection. Hinged at the top, Bahama shutters can be propped open for ventilation and sunlight or easily closed to shield against storms. Lafferty Aluminum & Screening's Bahama shutters are available in a range of colors and designs, allowing you to enhance the curb appeal of your home or business while ensuring robust storm protection.

Storm Panels - Cost-Effective and Reliable

For those looking for a cost-effective yet reliable storm protection solution, storm panels are a practical choice. These panels are typically made of aluminum or steel and can be easily installed over windows and doors when a storm is approaching. Lafferty Aluminum & Screening offers high-quality storm panels that meet or exceed industry standards, providing a durable and efficient option for storm protection.

Hurricane Fabric - Lightweight and Easy to Store

Hurricane fabric, also known as storm fabric or wind-abatement fabric, is a lightweight and easy-to-store option for storm protection. Made from high-strength materials, hurricane fabric can be quickly deployed over windows and doors, providing a strong barrier against wind and debris. Lafferty Aluminum & Screening's hurricane fabric options are designed for durability and can be conveniently stored when not in use.

Considerations for Choosing the Right Storm Shutters

When selecting the best storm shutters for your home or business, several factors should be considered:


Determine your budget for storm shutters, keeping in mind that the initial investment is a long-term investment in the safety and protection of your property.


Choose storm shutters that complement the architectural style of your home or business. Lafferty Aluminum & Screening offers a variety of styles, colors, and finishes to match your preferences.

Ease of Operation:

Consider the ease of operation, especially if you prefer shutters that can be quickly deployed by one person. Motorized options for shutters like accordion and roll-down shutters offer added convenience.

Local Building Codes:

Familiarize yourself with local building codes and regulations regarding storm protection. Ensure that the chosen storm shutters comply with these codes to guarantee the safety and legality of your installation.

Material and Durability:

Assess the materials used in the construction of the storm shutters. Opt for durable materials that can withstand the specific weather conditions in your region.
