The parable of the wise business owner who chose polycarbonate storm panels while his neighbor wrestled with plywood:
The winds had started at 10 a.m., and John Shmoe had been nailing plywood storm panels over his office windows for an hour now. He had already hit his thumb with the hammer and taken three splinters out of his palm, and one window remained to be covered. I’ll need another thirty minutes at least, he thought, rubbing the sweat out of his eyes and wondering why there wasn’t a better way to go about this storm panels process.
Just as he started affixing the last plywood shutter, the owner of the neighboring business stepped outside. In his arms he held polycarbonate shutters. As the exhausted plywood-installer looked on in amazement, he walked to each window, quickly affixed each shutter with a clear polycarbonate barrier, and strolled back inside. In the time it had taken John Shmoe to bring each cumbersome plywood sheet out of storage, the neighbor had covered each one of his windows.
After the storm winds subsided, John Shmoe yanked the soaked plywood off his building and stacked the sodden wood inside the community dumpster. His neighbor took his own shutters down as if they weighed nothing, and stored them in the garage for the next storm.
The lesson of the parable is clear. Choose multiwall polycarbonate storm panels approved to withstand hurricane-force winds, and you’ll save yourself a lot of time and trouble.
