STORM PANELS STAND-OFF

Plywood vs. Polycarbonate

In the battle for storm panel supremacy, the contest of plywood versus polycarbonate reveals an easy winner.  Read the following information regarding each material, and decide for yourself which is the better choice for storm panels.

Plywood is:

  • Easily attainable – Hardware stores stock up on extra sheets as soon as hurricane season begins.
  • Difficult to install (and thus unlikely to be taken down many times over the span of hurricane season) – Choose plywood storm panels, and you’d better be ready to commit some hammer time to the project.  It takes a while to secure the material, which means that some people actually choose to live through hurricane season in the dark, not taking down the panels until that last hurricane threat fizzles in the Atlantic.
  • Cheap and unprotected – Yes, it’s affordable – but as soon as plywood storm panels come into contact with water, they’re susceptible to wood rot.

In comparison, multiwall polycarbonate storm shutters are:

  • Easily attainable – R S Supply ships their Miami-Dade approved shutters quickly, and they even offer custom cuts at no additional charge.
  • Easy to install – Literally hang these lightweight shutters in mere minutes.
  • Inexpensive and long-lasting – Competitive pricing and UV-protected material make these shutters a favorite.

Compared to plywood, it’s no contest which is the best choice.  Contact R S Supply today at 1-800-782-4467 to order storm shutters made of hurricane-resistant polycarbonate.
