Jul 9, 2008

There are now shutters you can obtain that look and feel exactly like your normal blind or shutter but work in a totally different way. They are stronger and more durable if you were to experience a storm, these sorts of shutters are built to withstand high impact so that nothing flying around will find its way to your front room. So if you are experiencing very bad whether one day, the best thing to do would be to get the whole family into the house and close your shutters and just wait until the storm is over. If you have a look around afterwards you may notice that all your neighbours will have smashed windows with bits sticking out of them. The new model of shutters are not also great to protect your home in terrible weathers, but they also have the ability to stop the house or flat from getting too hot in the summer by not restricting the breeze like some traditional blinds would do, they work in a way to trap the incoming breeze and spread it out through the room, you can even get oscillating blinds or shutters which will give you an even better experience.

So whatever sort of protection you are looking for you should always ask 3 questions, firstly are the shutters storm proof, do they have customizable options and are they easy to fit.
