Supporting our people is a part of who we are
First Coast Hurricane Shutters is the premier storm protection company for homeowners and business owners in the greater Jacksonville area. Founded by North Florida natives, we are on a mission to bring the best protection to the areas we love to call home.
Materials are the easy part, good labor is hard to find
The two most important components to review when considering a construction project are materials and labor.
Materials are the easy part. We only use the best materials available and refuse to make any sacrifices in product quality. Keeping your property protected is our number one priority.
Labor can be difficult. It is challenging to find the right people to work hard and take pride in what they do. Most construction workers are paid hourly, and they have the stress of getting enough hours each week to pay their bills and support their families.
EDS: The Earned Day System
Our Earned Day System allows our installers to earn up to 8 weeks of paid time off (PTO) per year. PTO is earned when projects are completed on time and to the satisfaction of our customers. Any issues found upon job completion are corrected on a day our crew would otherwise have earned off. This system gives the First Coast team peace of mind, knowing they will have a stable paycheck each week. Plus, they’re given extra time to enjoy with friends and family or tend to other tasks. Our goal is to decrease stress and boost the positive mental health of our crews. It helps to make them “Better People.”
Because of this model, we rarely have issues with our workmanship. Our installers take great care in their work, and returning to a job for touch ups is extremely uncommon. Resulting in “Better Projects.”
