Which Louver Size is for Me?
When making your louver choice, consider the size of the window and the desired effect. The larger windows command the 3-1/2", 4-1/2", or the new 5 1/2" louvers where the view is paramount; using the 3-1/2", 4-1/2", or 5-1/2" louvers, the eye naturally focuses on the view through the open louvers. The smaller windows prefer the 2-1/2" or possibly 3-1/2" louvers where the eye will more naturally "see" the shutter before observing the view.
Can I fold the shutters against the wall on a daily basis?
Please keep in mind shutters are designed to fit an opening. The shutter panels are movable to allow cleaning and access to the window. They are not designed to be moved and folded up against a wall routinely. The louvers are the control mechanism allowing rotation to provide light, ventilation, view and privacy.
How do I determine if I need a frame?
Frames are required for two reasons:
1) Lack of depth in the opening to accommodate panels and unobstructed operation of the louvers.
2) Uneven opening dimensions. Many openings have adequate depth but have uneven dimensions.
What Colors or Stains are Available?
We will match any paint color you desire. To insure a close match, a paint color number or color sample is required. Stain finish will be matched most easily using your supplied sample. Often our clients send a piece of door or base trim stained the desired color. Stain affects different woods in different ways. Stain absorption varies by wood grain and base colors of the wood. Therefore, a close match is entirely possible but there may be variations beyond our control.
How often do I need to repaint or stain my shutters?
Due to the high quality paint and stain process our shutters enjoy your shutters will not need retreating for a period of around 7-10 years.Of course this varies depending on how well you treat your shutters, but so long as you treat the panels with respect, your shutters will last a lifetime.
What about Maintenance?
Shutters are easily cleaned using a feather duster or soft cloth.
How do I Measure my Windows & Doors?
Simple measurement of width and height is all we need for a free estimate.
What is a Divider Rail?
A divider rail is a horizontal wooden section that adds strength to the panel and an opportunity to operate the louvers above and below the divider rail independently.
