We offer various styles of hurricane shutters to meet your budget, vision, and goal.
Whether you live on the coast or further inland, there is the potential for hurricane-force winds to cause damage at your Wilmington, North Carolina home. We may not be as hurricane-prone as Florida, but having hurricane protection is just as important. At Port City Hurricane Shutters, we believe that hurricane shutters need to be as reliable and robust as any manufactured for a Florida property. That is why ours are manufactured locally in North Carolina but to Florida’s strict codes and regulations.
Rather than manufacture one type of hurricane shutters, we do various styles to meet your specific needs. Roll-up and roll-down hurricane shutters are popular options for those who want added security and energy efficiency, along with hurricane protection. You can choose from manual hand crank operation, spring-loaded, or motorized.
Steel, aluminum, and clear Lexan storm panels are another style of hurricane shutters we offer. They are installed on a channel track above the opening to avoid needing a ladder during deployment. Storm panels are a budget-friendly option, but you will need adequate time to put the panels up and a place to store them when not in use. Accordion shutters are a similar option but stay in place rather than taking them down after the danger has passed.
If you are looking for stylish hurricane shutters, we recommend Bahama shutters, also known as “Tommy Bahamas” or Bermuda shutters. We locally powder coat these impact-rated shutters to make them any color you wish so they’ll blend nicely with your home’s architecture.
