No, they are not. Remember the old “Yugo” car? It and a Toyota Lexus are as different as the best and the worst accordion hurricane shutters.
Guardian Storm Protection is proud to be a dealer of the Town and Country Industries 6.8 accordion hurricane shutters and the Town and Country High Rise accordion hurricane shutters. Town and Country accordion hurricane shutters are the absolute best hurricane shutters on the market. Hands Down!!! They have a patented double-hinged system that no other accordion hurricane shutter offers and they are specially powder coated to last rust-free year after year and not fade.
These other brand accordion hurricane shutters make me want to cry. As an installer, I can use any brand I choose, but because of my background and experience, I choose to deal with the absolute best accordion hurricane shutters on the market, or I would not get the referrals. I will do a comparison at your home and you will be convinced, I promise. And best of all, they are not more expensive in most cases. I have seen companies sell much worse accordion hurricane shutters for more money! It really upsets me. This is your home, “do it right”.
It takes a knowledgeable shutter consultant to look at each of your windows and doors and design the right installation. Speaking of installation, it is critical to how well your shutters operate and to protect your family and home. Guardian’s President, Andrew Kobosko started as an installer and spends a good bit of his time in the field checking installations making sure each of his installers does a first-class job. The strength of your accordion hurricane shutters exceeds codes for a major storm. We actually have several different strengths to cover different architecture. We also use a patented rounded floor track so you’re not tripping and we can also make any track removable.
