Couple equips home with Rolladens after attempted break-in

Carl and Anne Simons added Rolladen Rolling Shutters to their 3,200 square-foot single-story home in the southwest valley after an attempted break-in at the residence.
Carl and Anne Simons came home to find their southwest valley home had been the site of an attempted break-in.

However, the couple no longer has to worry about burglars invading their lives now that they have Rolladen Rolling Shutters on 15 doors and windows on their 3,200 square-foot home.

“You feel violated and we were just scared because I travel by myself occasionally while leaving my wife at home sometimes,” said Mr. Simons, who with his wife retired to Las Vegas four years ago after living in Hawaii.

“Without the Rolladens, I felt my marathon running career was over because I didn’t feel safe about leaving her home alone.”

The Simons live in a gated community. Their home backs up to a golf course which provides a wonderful view of the city.

“We like the view in the morning, but we also enjoy the idea that we can secure our home when we leave,” he added. “Even more importantly, we like to secure our home at night. We feel much safer now.”

Mrs. Simons concurred saying “When the Rolladens go down, I feel secure.

The couple had never had rolling shutters before moving to Las Vegas.

“We had not heard about them,” explained Mrs. Simon. “We learned about them at a community gathering where the sales person convinced us that the rolling shutters were exactly what we were needed. We had already been burglarized at the time, so were looking for protection.”

The Simons lauded the service provided by Rolladen

“We had two separate crews and they were both excellent,” Mr. Simon said. “They cleaned up after themselves; and cleaned and painted everything. We didn’t have to do a darned thing.”

Rolladen Rolling Shutters are roll-filled slats operated manually, electrically or by remote control. They lower power bills by as much as 64 percent while also preventing against burglaries.
