A Look at Custom Shutters
Who doesn't love the look of shutters? On the outside, they accentuate the windows, adding personality and style to the house. Inside, they offer a beautiful and stylish alternative to mini-blinds. Shutters are readily available in stock sizes.
If you have an unusual size or shape of window, however, you will need to buy custom shutters. Custom shutters are even available for arched or circular windows. The panels in this type of shutter will usually have to be manually adjusted.
Custom shutters are available in wood and synthetic materials. One such synthetic material is Thermalite. This material is offered by Danmer Custom Shutters. It is made to replicate the look and feel of wood. According to Danmer, Thermalite is moisture-resistant, flame-retardant, and insulates better than wood.
The task of finding a custom shutter manufacturer might seem daunting, but it really isn't. You can find a custom shutter company in your local Yellow Pages. You can also search on the Internet for "custom shutters" or "custom window shutters." That search will uncover numerous companies. One drawback to using non-local companies, however, is that you cannot have an in-home consultation. You will need to accurately measure your windows. This is crucial in buying custom shutters. Perhaps the best way to find a reputable company is by word of mouth. Ask friends and family for recommendations. When buying custom shutters, only buy from a manufacturer offering a lifetime warranty. Ask to see references and actually speak to some former customers, if possible. At the very least, see some photos of finished jobs.
Custom shutters add significantly to the value of your home. They add class, grace, and dignity to most any home. When the shutters are well made and properly installed this is an improvement that will truly last a lifetime -- one you will enjoy each and every day.
