When moving in a new home or doing any home renovation, you can’t overlook the importance of window coverings. Windows are thought to be eyes of the home, whether you are a renter, homeowner, or investor, one should pay extra attention to these focal areas. Especially in Las Vegas, protection is needed on your windows to help with utility bills, help minimize fading in home furnishings, and to alleviating the bright sun and heat forcing its way in your home. Shutters offer this defense while providing a more chic look to any home.
What are My Options?
Wood shutters have traditionally been the most popular choice for home builders and designers. They bring a more classic look to a home. Real wood can add a sense of warmth a welcoming feeling. The great thing about real wood is that the shutters can be milled, or built, to just about any custom size and shape. However unless it is properly and regularly cared for the wood can rot and warp over time. They are also subject to insects like termites and fire ants. Wooden shutters need to be repainted and re-stained on a regular basis to help keep them looking like new and to preserve their longevity.
Poly shutters, like vinyl, have the look and style of wood but without a lot of the maintenance. Because poly shutters aren’t porous like wood is, it’s not susceptible to rotting, warping, and insect infestation. The material is typically less expensive than wood is making vinyl shutters a better investment and increasing the value of your home. They don’t peel the color won’t fade, and they don’t crack like wood will. Poly shutters are an inexpensive option to taking your home to another level.
