Finally getting Accordions!

#1 Postby tgenius » Tue Apr 14, 2009 3:32 pm

We used to have accordions on the condo, but when we bought the house last July, it had panel shutters.. and when we had the scare with Fay, I dreaded even thinking of having to put them up.

I ended up getting various quotes, going with one for $4000, including permits and they will be installed next Monday! It's amazing how being out of season can save you $$$.

Congrats, accordions are the greatest. Just remember to lube them at least once a year. For anyone who thinks they harm the look of a house just live down here for awhile and you will soon never even notice them. Great for resale value too.

Remember the old Gary Larson cartoon?

Welcome to heaven--here's your harp!

Welcome to hell--here's your accordion!

Funny story..I was pulling out of my garage on Thursday morning and I see the van for the company who did my shutters..turns out my neighbor bought them from the same guy!
