Moving to Florida from the central part of the US or the northern states, it is a change of many people. While they love the ability to use their screen rooms all year round to enjoy the balmy weather, they also have to learn to install hurricane shutters for protection for their property during the hurricane season.

Harper’s Hurricane Protection and Screen Enclosures are a locally owned and operated fully licensed contractor providing services to the Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, FL, communities. These professionals can help people new to the area to understand how to protect their property while enjoying the Florida weather.

Enjoying the Outdoors

There are many different ways to enjoy the great outdoors in the state. Screen rooms are elegant to casual, low-cost addition to any home that makes your outdoor living space more comfortable as it allows the breeze but keeps out the bugs that are out year-round. While the screened areas don’t have the protection that hurricane shutters provide for your windows, there are some solid options for rainstorms or colder days.

Vinyl & acrylic windows can be installed in a home to give you that extra bit of protection. They are lower cost to install and maintain than traditionally windows plus they can be easily tinted.

Protecting the Home

To protect your home from wind and rainstorms, as well as tropical force winds and hurricanes, there are specially designed shutters. These can be accordion, roll down or panels, allowing for easy deployment of the shutters should the weather turn bad.

Those new to the Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, FL, communities should take the time to talk to experts in hurricane protection and outdoor screened areas. They may find they need additional protection or that a screened patio is just what they need for their home.
