Here in Florida, hurricanes are a very real and always-looming threat. While we all have our routines, one of the most important things you can do to protect you, your belongings and your home is to invest in hurricane shutters.
Most people obviously associate hurricane shutters with the bad stuff – the hurricanes themselves – and the protection they can provide. Reality is – hurricane shutters come with many benefits aside from protection – that you can enjoy and that’s what we’re here to discuss today.
Here are some benefits of investing in hurricane shutters and what they can mean for you and your home. Let’s jump right in!
Increased resale value
While the Florida Real Estate market has certainly seen its ups and downs over the past 15 years or so, there’s no reason to not add value to your home by adding hurricane shutters. They add protection that out of towners will be sure to think of, but for prospective buyers familiar to the area, they’ll be interested in the aesthetic they provide.
And speaking of aesthetic…
It doesn’t matter how expensive your home is if you can’t get someone to buy it. And to attract eyes and attention, it’s always important to boost your home’s curb appeal.
Hurricane shutters aren’t what they’re assumed to be – merely protective layers to your windows. Now they come in a wide range of eye-catching designs and colors that can really make your house pop.
While hurricanes and markets come and go, bills are always a part of our life, particularly energy bills. And trust us when we say we’ve still yet to find a single human alive who doesn’t want to cut down their monthly expenses!
The good news is – hurricane windows will help you do that. They keep excessive UV rays out of your home and help keep it cool without having to fire up your AC. This will keep your temperature far more stable (and comfortable), and as a result you’ll cut down on your energy bill – a large part of which comes from AC having to constantly turn on and off to keep temperatures consistent.
