Forum Title: New roof meets window
I'm considering replacing my windows with either hurricane impact windows or hurricane shutters. This one window is on 2nd floor (I will only consider shutters that can be secured from inside on 2nd floor) and the front of the house. The new first floor sloped roof basically meets the bottom of this one window... Some of the shutter guys say I don't have enough room under this window to install the accordion shutters (apparently, the only type of shutters I can secure from inside) on this window. That said, how will either replacing the window or installing shutters affect where the new roof meets the bottom of the window? Thanks!

Welcome to the forums! I'd bend it back the best I could and then caulk the gap.

Thanks! Only one shutter guy told he could NOT put the accordion shutters in without as you say ...much more work than it's worth.. Would the same be true for replacing this window with same size new hurricane impact window?

Replacing the current window with a hurricane window, shouldn't be a problem. The only thing is that I don't know anything about the quality of them or if they work as advertized.
