What are Accordion Shutters?
Accordion shutters come in a number of different styles. Generally speaking, they are one- or two-piece shutters which are affixed permanently to the side of your windows and doors on the exterior of your home. Most of the time, they remain folded and secured, not covering your window. When a storm is projected, they are simple to unfold in order to cover the window or door.
Because they are designed to glide easily closed, securing the windows and doors of a home generally only requires one person. Some accordion shutter models are lockable with a key, which may appeal to home owners who would like their hurricane protection measures to double as a theft prevention strategy, as well.
Are All Accordion Shutters Created Equally?
