I bought my shutters from Home Depot. They have everything you need to installed them yourself. I spoke to one of their Associates who was very knowledgeable with DIY and I did not have any problems. I used several aluminum panels with one clear panel on our lanai sliding door and one on our front window. The clear panel helps the light shine-in and it's quite a visual experience when they are in use.

There is an upper Channel that the paella slide into and a bottom bracket with bolts that hold them secure.

I just up mine up for the second time and I'm ready for something new.

I had Stormsmart come out a few months ago to give me pricing for 3 roll up fabric for a slider and the front entry and fabric for the other windows on the house and the price came out to $9k....ouch.

My windows are old and not uninsulated circa 1990 so I would like to eventually have them replaced.

At this point I'm thinking my best option is to stay with what I have and eventually upgrade to hurricane resistant windows and be done with the shutters.
