Shutters are the ultimate in custom window coverings and offer long-term energy savings and an increase to the value of your home. Made of naturally insulating, high quality hardwood, Shutters add beauty and elegance, while saving energy. Over winter months, Shutters reduce heat loss through the window’s frame assembly. Opening the shutter louvers on sunny days allow the sun’s warmth in. Closing the louvers at night insulates against cold outside temperatures. During the summer months, energy savings are realized by keeping heat and damaging sunlight out which results in lower cooling costs. Shutters are also available in a selection of composite materials. In many instances, they can be custom made to fit architectural style windows as well.
