Maximize Space in Your Custom Built Home

Building a custom home is a great experience. But sticking within your budget can be difficult. When figuring out how much your new home is going to cost, you usually have to think in terms of square footage. But there are ways to increase your square footage and still save. For example, building up by adding a second story on the house is less expensive than building out, because that’s less area that will need a foundation and roof coverage. I started this blog to help you find ways to get the space that you need in your custom home, without having to spend more than you can afford. Building my custom home was the best money I ever spent, and I’m happy to help you learn how to get the custom home you want.

What Are The Benefits Of Commercial Security Shutters?

Construction & Contractors Blog

In some places, security shutters are an obvious choice, such as when your business is in a mall or strip mall. Without them, your business would often stand out. But security shutters can be useful for other businesses as well. Here are some things security shutters would do for your business. 

Let People Know You're Closed

Security shutters create a very obvious signal that your business is closed. People don't have to cross the street or get out of their vehicles to come to the door, only to find out you closed 3 hours ago. That saves time and frustration for customers, which is ultimately a big part of customer service. 

It Makes Your Business Less of a Target

Security shutters make your business less of a target for a few reasons. First of all, it is a visual barrier that doesn't show what kind of security you have on the other side. That can be a deterrent for thieves who would otherwise be able to peer into windows and devise a plan for breaking in. The visual barrier can also stop criminals from taking an interest in an item that catches their eye as they are walking by. 

Another point is that many thieves are less adept at breaking through security shutters than glass or other materials. With glass, you know you need a certain amount of force to shatter the window and break through. Doors can be pulled off their hinges or lock picked to grant access to the shop. Security shutters are more of a wild card for burglars. First of all, they may not know how to break through security shutters, because the materials are more varied and often stronger. Second, security shutters are designed so that a single break in the shutters should not take the whole installation down. Thus, there is no simple and easy point of entry through your security shutters. 

They Are Easy to Set Up and Work With

The final point is that security shutters are easy, all around. The installation and purchase of security shutters can be much more reasonable than, say, impact resistant glass windows. They are also easy for your staff to use. Security shutters can often be controlled electronically, making it very easy and accessible for new staff to learn how to operate them. No one risks injury from having to lift anything. All in all, security shutters are worth a look.
