Embellishing your windows with custom shutters can be a significant expense, which is why it’s only natural to maximize your investment. To make them last for as long as possible, use these tips from Wholesale Shutter Company:
Don’t Skimp on the Material
Avoid buying the cheapest products because you’re going to get for what you pay. Like traditional barn doors, shutters, especially exterior ones, would have to put up with the elements all year long. When constructed with low quality materials, don’t expect them to serve your home for too long.
For us, wood and poly shutters best stand the test of time. Stronger than most synthetic materials on the market, they resist warping and peeling to stay structurally sound for many years.
Pick Shutters on a Room-by-Room Basis
If wood is your material of choice for your custom design shutters, think about the possibility of moisture damage. Wood is perfect for all areas except those near water sources like the bathroom. If moisture is a concern, choose poly instead. After all, you can make both materials look the same with thoughtful customization.
Finish With UV-Resistant Paint
Most interior and exterior shutters fade prematurely due to constant sun exposure. An elegant solution is to use ultraviolet-inhibiting paint to make them age gracefully. More than just delaying or eliminating the need for shutter replacement, using a fade-resistant finish reduces the time and cost you will spend on maintenance.
Choose an Installer That Also Manufactures the Shutters
Most window covering options come with powerful warranty protection. If you hire a company that only installs products manufactured by another company, making repair claims can become more complicated. If neither party takes responsibility for product failure, you might be left high and dry.
Unlike most of our competitors, we manufacture and install our own products. Wholesale Shutter Company handles the entire process from start to finish to provide you convenience and peace of mind.
