Bahama shutters are a style frequently used on homes in the Caribbean and southern United State; they may also be referred to as Bermuda shutters. Bahama shutters are designed to cover the window opening entirely and installed to be functional, with hinges at the top of the panels. Tilt arms toward the bottom of the window opening allow the shutters to be secured in the open position.

Testimonials

Roy S.

Our house took a direct hit from Hurricane Irma last year when the storm made landfall in our ocean front yard as a Category 4 storm. Fortunately our concrete house is a bunker like structure and withstood the storm quite well. We wanted to dress up the street side of the house so we added your shutters to diminish the bunker like look, a big improvement. Your company was great to deal with and the quality of the shutters is top notch.
