Top Quality Hurricane Shutters

</p><p>Hurricane season is approaching quickly.  To be exact, June 1st marks the first day of hurricane season.  In order to prepare the Coastal Bend for any potential hurricanes, we have teamed up with Academy Window Coverings to educate the community on the type of hurricane shutters that can be installed for a greater protection on your home.

Hurricane shutters don’t have to be bulky, ugly, or difficult to use. Mrs. Ernestine Valadez, owner of Academy Window Coverings, says that being in the business for over 57 years has allowed her to see every style of shutters.  “We have the latest trends of products in the showroom,” says Valadez. “Whatever the customer imagines, most likely we carry. If not, we can custom order.”

</p><p>The most popular and highly recommended shutters are the roll-down type.  The shutters attach just above the window.  They can be lowered either manually by a hand crank or automatically by the push of a button.  They lock in place for storm protection and even make an excellent theft deterrent.


For homes with more character, resident choose to use the colonial hurricane shutters.  These shutters are two-piece louvered shutters and sit beside the window.  They can be folded in to close.  For added protection, some are combined with a storm bar that locks the shutters in place.

</p><p>Another popular storm shutter is the Bahama hurricane shutters.  These shutters are a one piece louvered shutter that gets attached above the window. They prop open and provide shade for the window.  The shutters lower and secure to the wall to become storm ready.

There are many options when it comes to hurricane shutters.  Academy Window Coverings is ready to show you all of the options in their showroom at 4303 South Padre Island Drive.  They are also willing to give a free in-home consultation.  Give them a call at 361-852-6088 or visit to make an appointment today!
