5.0 Steven K. Cocoa Beach, FL

Thank you very much I appreciate the quick turn around of only a couple months after Ty initially came out The work was very proficient and turned out great. Now I feel confident when the next hurricane or rough storm comes are way. I used to board up the windows which was a waste of time and money. These shutters will pay for themselves. Thanks so much for the great work guys

5.0 Bill P. Melbourne, FL

Joe from Big Wave Storm Shutters responded immediately, arrived promptly on the same day, and repaired 25 year old pvc roll-down shutter at a reasonable price without trying to up-sell me services or parts. Will definitely use him again.

Joe LaPlante is an excellent find and will be our go-to contractor for anything hurricane shutter related. He is knowledgeable, honest, conscientious, and was respectful of my home. Joe repaired an electric shutter and motor that another contractor botched. He showed up on time and performed the work he promised at the price he quoted. I would recommend him without hesitation.

5.0 Kestrel M. Melbourne, FL

Joe was very responsive and friendly. He did an excellent job repairing and servicing all of the 26 storm shutters on our entire two-story home for a very reasonable cost. I plan to call him next year to have him come back and take care of our yearly maintenance.

4.5 Susan P. Melbourne, FL

Very good workmanship and price. I just let him get away without finding out how to operate the remotes. A quick explanation took care of that. Susie P - Melbourne, Fl

Joe and Julian was very knowledgeable and on time and the price was reasonable. I will use them again if needed.

Works after his full time job shows up about 4pm

Response from Company:

I have been in the shutter industry over 15 years and I do this full time. Sorry my schedule is busy before hurricanes approach, next time plan to have your shutter repaired before the hurricane is approaching.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
