Plantation shutters may be one of the oldest window treatments available, but their popularity has been growing recently because of their classic and elegant design. Plantation shutters also have many advantages over other window treatments. If you’re interested in installing plantation shutters in Delaware County, PA, here are some answers to commonly asked questions to make sure plantation shutters are the perfect fit for your home.
What are plantation shutters used for?
Unlike shutters that you typically think of on the outside of a home, plantation shutters are inside. They were first invented to help with the control of airflow on hot days. After air conditioning was invented, plantation shutters started being used just for their elegant and stylish design in homes. They are also easily adjustable for your light and privacy preferences.
What kinds of windows can plantation shutters be installed in?
Plantation shutters are custom made for any type of window, no matter the size or shape. They can even be installed in French or sliding glass doors or in curved or small windows.
What makes plantation shutters so durable?
We use Mortise and Tenon joints to make plantation shutters because they are designed to withstand the shear stress and racking forces applied when opening and closing your shutters, which makes them the most durable option for your home, no matter how often you operate them.
Why should I get plantation shutters instead of other window treatments?
