About

As a family owned business we are truly motivated to provide the best products we can to our clients so they can protect their homes and buildings or simply improve the architectural beauty with long lasting excellent aluminum products.

Palm Coast Shutters was established by Robert McNally in 2000 in order to provide high quality hurricane protective shutters to the custom homes and projects he was building in Vero Beach Florida. As a high end design and custom homebuilding firm, the company required hurricane protection systems that met the architectural design / building company’s own standards of proper design and quality.

Growing, the company developed relationships with high end aluminum extruders, created its own fabrication team of experts, and installed millions of dollars worth of shutter systems.

“We were stunned at the number of houses that had zero protective devices, more stunned that homeowners did not even close the shutters, and saddened by the level of truly severe damage caused to the structures without protection.”
In 2004, Palm Coast Shutter’s home town of Vero Beach was hit by two major hurricanes in less than three weeks. “We were stunned at the number of houses that had zero protective devices, more stunned that homeowners did not even close the shutters, and saddened by the level of truly severe damage caused to the structures without protection.” The company was suddenly besieged with orders for shutter systems.

It soon thereafter developed a line of products that enabled homeowners to close their own shutters easily so as not to depend on often overwhelmed maintenance companies during times of hurricane warnings. The “Easy to Close” shutter line was born and this product line has proven to be a resounding success.

The company began to grow larger and hired Austin McNally who had been working for a National building supply company in Dallas, Texas after his graduation from Denison University to head up the organization. Robert McNally remains the CEO of The Palm Coast Architectural Design and Construction companies working on first class residential and commercial construction projects along the Treasure Coast of Florida. As a father and son team, Palm Coast Shutters has designed, developed, and installed millions and millions of dollars of storm shutter systems on homes, sophisticated mixed use projects, and commercial buildings. Their experience in design, application, and installation provides the knowledge of “hands-on” experience and proper aesthetic applications when called for.
