Colonial shutters can give your home a classic, stylish look and are simple to maintain. Not only that, but some shutters with this style can offer a high level of protection during a hurricane. As with Bahama shutters, they can block flying debris. However, they also often do not have slats on them, preventing intense winds from reaching your windows.
Louvered panels or solid, Colonial Shutters come in multiple styles, and can easily be color matched or provide the needed accent to make your home stand out. Available in Aluminum, Wood or Vinyl, these hurricane-rated shutters meet or exceed the standards set forth for coastal construction.

These shutters can keep flying debris from breaking the windows of your home. The colonial shutters that we offer are built with strong materials, keeping flying debris from striking the glass of your windows. Not only can this help to keep your windows intact, but it will also keep fast-moving air from getting into your home and causing further damage.
What do colonial shutters look like?
Our colonial shutters are available in a wide range of colors and styles. This will allow you to get the right look for your home. Colonial shutters tend to be best for homes that have a traditional, classic look. However, they can be integrated into either modular or custom-built homes.
Colonial shutters are designed to open with a hinge, and they will open from the middle of your window outward. While some colonial shutters have a fairly plain appearance, others contain designs that can give your windows a unique look.
How do you use colonial shutters before a storm?
It’s important to make sure that the shutters are fully closed before hurricane-force winds. If the shutters are closed prior to the arrival of hazardous winds, you can be sure that they’ll offer a high level of protection. Also, it’s important to make sure that you close the latch on the shutters, which will keep them from blowing open during the storm.
