Should I Choose Accordion Shutters or Impact Windows?

Often times our customers ask us what we recommend and in most cases, we say go with impact glass. Let me explain what we’ve found over the years.

Accordion Shutters

Impact Window and Door Installation for your home by Benchmark Painting

Accordion shutters are typically about 50% of the cost of replacing doors and windows with impact glass. With that in mind, shutters still need to be maintained and lubed so they work properly when the time comes that they are needed. Once the shutters are closed, there is almost complete darkness in your home and sometimes for a couple of days depending on the intensity of the storm.

Even with new shutters, you are left with your old windows and maintaining them including replacing broken springs, locks and other hardware. Shutters also take away from the look of the home and installation requires many holes drilled into your home to secure them which opens the possibility for leaks.


Impact Glass Advantages

With the new impact glass, you have a few advantages. There is less sound transmission due to thicker glass, higher security due to the almost impossibility of breaking the glass and tint options that can reduce your energy bill. Not to mention, you have fresh new windows and doors with new screens, a warranty, and added value to your home. For us, it’s an easy decision especially with the simple financing programs we offer.
