* We have found that plywood shutters are replaced frequently. As often as every year. This is a statistical fact. Your one time purchase of screens will last a lifetime.
Yes, one could argue that is misleading but the reality is by the time you consider your time at Home Depot (tm), the energy required to install the plywood, repair the damage left by the fasteners after removal of the plywood, and the extra electricity to light your house during the day while closed up with plywood, the screens look more and more inexpensive.
The Storm Catcher is Florida Building Commission approved. The best use of the Storm Catcher wind-abatement system is to provide protection for large covered areas such as a lanai. The lanai will allow the Storm Catcher to deflect as far as it can during hurricane- force winds. The Storm Catcher can also absorb all of the impacts from flying debris protecting everything in the lanai and all of the windows and doors. BEST PRODUCT I KNOW OF!
The Storm Catcher wind-abatement system can be used on any window or door with the understanding that you may have a broken window but your home will be protected against catastrophic loss. Yes, you may have to wipe up some water and clean up the broken glass but your house will not be subjected to the huge internal pressure build up that could cause the total loss of your home.
