How to maintain aluminum storm panels

To maintain your investment, pull your storm panels out of storage once per year (before hurricane season) and inspect them for corrosion, debris, dents, or other damage. 

After use, carefully wash each panel with soap and water. Dry the aluminum storm panels completely and stack flat on a horizontal surface for storage. 

Remember to label the shutters as you remove them for easier installation in case of another tropical storm.

Where to store aluminum storm panels

Depending upon how many storm panels you have, you may need a shed or storage space used exclusively for properly storing hurricane shutters. 

  • Stack panels neatly 
  • Label panels according to which window or opening they fit
  • Store in a dry area
  • Avoid storing in areas where the edges could get bent or damaged

If the edges get damaged it will make installation much more difficult and could compromise the integrity of your hurricane shutters.
