Hurricane Accordion Storm Shutters
Accordion shutters are a permanently installed storm shutter system designed for both protection from the elements (such as hurricanes) and home / office security. They fold back to stack neatly next to the opening similar to a louvered door and are composed of one or two pieces. Accordion storm shutters are great for windows and doors, balconies, large patio openings, and commercial high-rise buildings.
Roll shutters are installed above an opening and are raised and lowered using an electronic motor. The system can also be activated manually by crank. When built into a new home, roll down shutters are virtually invisible. While in the closed position, they not only provide storm protection, but they also protect from forced entry and theft. When not in use, they store in an enclosed box located at the top of the opening.
Bahama Aluminum Shutters
Bahama hurricane shutters hinge at the top and have adjustable arms allowing the shutters to be positioned at various angles. If privacy and/or relief from the Florida sun is desired, Bahama shutters can be positioned within the window opening. During hurricanes and storms, simply lower the shutter into the vertical position and secure with locking pins. Bahama shutters are the premiere choice for windows on multi-story buildings because they can easily be locked from inside.
Colonial Aluminum Shutters
Colonial Shutters are similar to Bahama Shutters except they hinge on the sides as opposed to hinging at the top. To secure Colonial shutters for hurricanes, simply close each half of the shutter and secure with a horizontal storm bar. The storm bar fits into brackets that are permanently attached to the non-decorative side of the shutter and are secured with locking pins.
Steel, aluminum or polycarbonate storm panels attach to the walls around windows and doors on bolts or tracks. Storm panels are corrugated, and each piece overlaps the next for maximum strength. There are several styles of storm panels to choose from.

What happens if I build without a permit in Lighthouse Point, Florida?
If you begin construction without the required permit(s), a “Stop Work Order” will immediately be issued by an Inspector and a Notice of Violation will be issued by the City’s Code Enforcement Department. You will be required to apply for and receive the permit(s) for the work and pay additional fees (twice the amount of the original fee). After the permit has been properly issued, you will then be required to uncover any work which has been covered so that it may be inspected prior to the release of the “Stop Work Order”, or the building official may allow an engineer or architect to inspect and take responsibility for the work. He would then have to write a letter to the building department accepting responsibility for the work and assuring the work complies with the code. In some cases, regulations or codes may not permit the type of construction that has been done. In this case, you may be required to replace or restore the area to its original condition prior to your construction.

Hurricane Wilma was the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Wilma was the fourth Category 5 hurricane and second-most destructive hurricane of the record-breaking 2005 season. Formed in the Caribbean Sea near Jamaica on October 15. Wilma continued intensifying, and eventually became a hurricane on October 18. Shortly thereafter, extreme intensification occurred, and in only 24 hours, Wilma became a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made landfall in Cape Romano, Florida with winds of 120 mph (190 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made several landfalls, with the most destructive effects felt in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, Cuba, and the US state of Florida. At least 62 deaths were reported, and damage is estimated at $29.1 billion (2005 USD), $20.6 billion (2005 USD) of which occurred in the United States.
