Hurricane Protection

When there is a storm scare, should I tape my windows?

No. Don’t waste your tape and valuable time. The tape offers very little in terms of strength and protection against flying glass and debris. After the storm passes, you will have to scrape the worn-out tape off your damaged windows. Try to get the shutters installed over your doors and windows at the first sound of a hurricane warning and stay worry-free.

I live in an evacuation zone; do I need shutters?

Whether you are living in your house or away, hurricane shutters protect your home and property from the damage storms and hurricanes can cause. It is always better to take precautions and exercise safety to protect yourself and your property.

What type of shutter should I buy?

We have various options available when it comes to buying hurricane shutters. You should consider factors like your budget, the number of windows and doors in your house, whether you want temporary or permanent, removable, or fixed shutters. Compare various options available to you and buy the shutters that best fit your needs.

How many years has Castle Impact Windows been in business?

We have been providing hurricane shutter protection for more than fifty three years. We have top-quality products, exceptional customer service, and efficient maintenance and repair services with a quick turnaround time.

Can we use plywood as protection from a hurricane?

Plywood is and should always be the last resort. As it is hard and heavy, plywood doesn’t attach to doors and windows properly. When a storm hits, the plywood gets soaked, and its layers peel, making it weaker in the process. Plywood offers very little and unreliable storm protection.

Storm Shutters

What are Rolling Shutters?

Primarily designed as hurricane shutters, these rolling shutters offer the most additional benefits. They protect against water infiltration, water damage, and associated mildew and mold. Rolling shutters blend effortlessly into any building’s architecture.

These shutters automatically roll up into specially designed housing boxes when not in use. We have various options for the smallest possible housing boxes available to choose from. These shutters can be motor operated with the push of a button and are also available in strap and pole crank and manual push-up/pull-down designs. Battery-operated models come in handy when there is a power outage and an impending storm

What are Storm Panel Shutters?

These types of shutters are used as long as the storm lasts. After the storm passes, they can be neatly stacked away for later use. Storm panel shutters are available in steel, aluminum, and polycarbonate material and take a bit longer to set up and install.

It is the best economical storm protection solution as these panels protect windows, doors, porches, and other exposed structures while allowing a good amount of light to enter your rooms. Each panel has a ridged design for enhanced strength, with each piece overlapping the next.

We offer a variety of styles and designs for these panels. Before buying, make sure you get them cut into proper measurements to make the installation smoother.

What are Accordion Shutters?

These shutters can be quickly installed and are easy to use as they are permanently affixed beside the doors and windows. They can be easily installed in the case of sudden storms and adverse weather conditions. They open in accordion style and are made of durable polycarbonate material.

Accordion shutters can be customized to exactly fit the dimensions of your windows, doors, patios, and any other structure worth protecting. They are lightweight, require no additional storage, and a single person can unfold them storm-ready as they glide on wheels. Many accordion models offer lock-and-key functionality to deter break-ins and thefts in your absence.

What are Colonial Shutters?

Also known as traditional plantation shutters, colonial shutters got the style inspiration from the colonial architecture prevalent in New England. They are incredibly durable and easy to install. The colonial hurricane protection shutters available with us never warp or rot under any weather and are designed to improve the look and aesthetics of your home.

These shutters are custom-made and hand-assembled to be waterproof and robust, and they last for a long time. Colonial shutters offer enhanced insulation from cold and heat and noise. We have many decorative and color options to provide you with multiple options to suit your needs.

What are Bahama Shutters?

Bahama shutters provide shade and additional privacy to your home and are designed to be used in warm, tropical, Bahamas-like weather. These shutters are storm-ready as soon as they are installed and lowered for use.  

They’re also very durable and available in aluminum, wood, and many colors and designs. Although Bahama shutters are not suitable for protecting doors, they are a terrific double-duty protective option for your windows.  

When lowered, they look decorative without blocking much light from entering various rooms. These low-maintenance shutters are very affordable and are available in a versatile styling and color range.
