PROTECT YOUR HOME WITH ALUMINUM PLANTATION SHUTTERS

Dena Dillon - Saturday, August 09, 2014

Do you have an area in your home that is constantly exposed to the wild weather that so often leaves parts of the United States damaged? Weatherwell Elite aluminum shutters combine cutting edge engineering with a sleek design that is loved by architects worldwide, and is the answer to your prayers. It is unlike anything seen on the market to date because previously aluminum shutters had to sacrifice beauty for usability. Now instead you can have the perfect outdoor area before and after the wild weather using our aluminum shutters.

Since the beginning of the 2010s, there have been 72 presidential major disaster declarations on average per year, which is a 30% increase from the previous decade’s average. Between 2011 and 2013 the total extreme weather cost for the 34 most severe events totaled $208 billion in damage and 1,221 fatalities.Daniel J.

We can’t control Mother Nature, but what we can control is what we use to protect our belongings and outdoor areas. The performance of the aluminum shutters that you choose could be what saves your home. Weatherwelll Elite passes the Miami-Dade extreme wind testing which is wind rating: 50 psf and 75 psf design overload.

Weatherwell Elite shutters unique design means that as well as being able to withstand winds of any strength they are capable of surviving salt and sun. Whether it is your permanent residence or your summer home, a beach house has a few more natural extremities to overcome such as salt. The internal rotation mechanisms are never exposed to the salt air, and the high quality powder coat over the aluminum means the shutters will last for years of beachside enjoyment. In fact, because we know that they will last we provide 10 years structural warranty, 10 years standard powder coat and 5 years wood grain powder coat.

 

The owners of this beachfront home wanted to be able to use their covered patio at all times of the day; particularly in the afternoon when they returned home from work. They had a million dollar view with waves lapping at the front yard but they were having trouble with on shore and off shore “breezes”, more appropriately described as strong winds which were at their worst in the afternoon. Multi-fold aluminum shutters were a perfect solution and investment. The homeowners could fold back the panels to enjoy their million-dollar view when the winds were down, or close them up and manoeuvre the louvers when the winds were present. Additionally Weatherwell Elite shutters are an attractive feature to add to your home that always enhances the value your home.
