And it’s no different for your accordion shutters. So, how long do accordions last? That is what we will discuss in this article. We will provide you with information to help you understand the expected life of your new shutters.

How long should your Accordion shutters last?
Everything in this world, no matter what it is eventually reaches its useful life. And accordion shutters are the same. But the question remains how long should they last?
It is hard to reasonably predict the exact length your accordion hurricane shutters will last.
The good news is that accordion shutters should, under normal circumstances, protect your home and family for many, many years. This assumes that you follow the recommended use and care and maintenance guidelines. This also assumes the shutters don’t suffer significant damage at some point, such as during a major storm.
Importance of the Warranty
It is hard to predict how long your new accordion shutters will last. Regardless, you want to be protected and covered if the shutters don’t last or perform like they are supposed to. And this is why the warranty for your shutters is so important.
Your warranty provides you with assurance for a specific amount of time. So if your accordion storm shutters don’t last like they should, or break down unexpectedly, you may be protected under their warranty.
WHY THE WARRANTY MATTERS FOR ACCORDION SHUTTERS
Why is a warranty important to you as a buyer of hurricane shutters?
First, the warranty provides you with assurance on your purchase. Second, it is a good indication of the quality of the shutters and of how long you can expect them to last. Specifically, the manufacturer’s warranty:
- Indicates the quality and level of confidence in the accordion shutters. A warranty is a good indication of the quality of the shutters. It signals the reliability and durability of the product you are buying. This is because a warranty can be viewed as a time period that the manufacturer is confident that the product will perform as it is supposed to. So it may be true that a longer warranty with more coverage is a good indication of a higher quality, more reliable product. It shows the company has more faith in the quality and durability of their products so they can offer a longer warranty.
- Represents the amount of time the manufacturer will stand behind their product, either completely or in some way. If your accordions don’t perform like they should you will be protected in some way under the warranty as long as it is still valid. So again, the longer and more comprehensive the warranty is the better.
It should be noted that not all warranties are created equal. Each warranty will differ in terms of years and coverage. We recommend you review the language of the warranty to understand what is covered, what is not covered, and for how long.
For reference, Eurex Shutters offers a 20 year limited, transferable warranty on our EUREX SHUTTERS PTX™ Accordion Shutters.
