How Things Work

Hurricane Shutters
by Peter Schulz

Hurricane shutters are required for all townhome, condo, and apartment first floor windows and sliding doors and townhome second floor windows with the exception of the 2nd floor townhome front window which is a hurricane impact resistant glass window.

Shutters are not required on second and third floor condo and apartment windows as they are hurricane impact resistant glass windows.

Note: For community appearance purposes, shutters are only to be put up when a storm is approaching and they are to be taken down after the storm has passed.

  • Townhome Owners - Town home owners are responsible for putting up their shutters in the event of a storm.

    Townhome owners have the hardware and instructions, including a one hour long DVD for installing their shutters in their Welcome Package. Also included in the Welcome Package is a sketch showing the windows and their corresponding opening numbers. The shutters are stored in the garage.

    Each Owner who plans to be absent during the hurricane season must prepare their Unit before departure by removing all furniture, plants and other objects from the patio, designating a responsible firm or individual to care for the Unit in the event of a hurricane threat and/or hurricane damage, and furnishing the Board with the name of the firm or individual. Should the firm or individual not be designated or available, the Association is authorized to take whatever steps are necessary in its discretion to protect the Unit and Unit property at the sole cost and expense of the Owner.

    If you have any questions, please contact the Association Office at 561-638-1622 or stop by the office located in the Clubhouse.
     
  • Townhome Developer Lessees - Residents who are leasing from the Developer have the same responsibilities as homeowners for insuring that their Unit is properly secured before a hurricane, including the installation of their hurricane shutters.

  • Condo Owners - First floor condo owners are responsible for putting up their shutters in the event of a storm.

    First floor condo owners have the hardware and instructions, including a one hour long DVD for installing their shutters in their Welcome Package. Also included in the Welcome Package is a sketch showing the windows and their corresponding opening numbers. The shutters are stored in the locked closets beneath the first floor stairwells. Property Management will be available to unlock the closets so that the condo owners can get their shutters before a hurricane.

Note: The hurricane shutters for your unit are your property and you are responsible for their safe keeping and deployment.

As a convenience, your shutters are currently locked in closets under the first floor stair wells of your building. However, the Condominium Association is not responsible for damage or loss of hurricane shutters stored in the closets. Furthermore, access to shutters stored in the closets is limited to the normal hours of operation by the Association Management Office, or to special pre storm hours designated by the Property Manager.

Alternatively, you may keep your hurricane shutters in your unit. For your planning purposes, the bundle of shutters for your unit requires a storage space approximately 85 inches long by 16 inches wide by 4 inches high.

No action is required on your part if you want to leave your shutters in the locked closets under the first floor stair wells. If you want to keep your shutters in your unit, call the Association Management Office to schedule a time to get them. Phone 561-638-1622
