Who is responsable for the missing of huracan shutters, the tenants or the landlord?

When the house was rented we provide the shutters. The tenants lived there 3 years. They think they are not responsable for the missing pannels because they were in a close terrace attached the house and not inside the house. The terrace goes along the bag part to the house and only 3 feet width. Who should pay for the shutters?

If the landlord had the hurricane shutters installed outside the terrace, the landlord is responsible for the maintenance, upkeep and replacement of those shutters.
