Learn How To Find A Durable Shutter In Seattle
Last month, a previous client contacted one of our Texas locations. The client had their home destroyed by a tornado earlier this year, but the home’s Sunburst Polywood® plantation shutters survived.
Hopefully, your shutters won’t need to survive a twister. But there are some things to look for when looking for shutters in Seattle that are durable and will look beautiful for decades.
*Disclaimer: Sunburst Shutters doesn’t guarantee that their our products will withstand a tornado or other natural disasters, but this is a good example of the durability and longevity of our Polywood shutters. Read our lifetime warranty.
The most important quality to be sure of when you need a long-lasting window treatment is the material it’s built from and how it’s constructed. For wood shutters, look for products made from hardwood that’s both solid and lightweight. Both high-grade teak and basswood (the types of woods used in our Ovation® shutters) meet this criteria.
If you’re in the market for faux wood shutters, look for those made from a solid compound like our Polywood® shutters. Polywood shutters have more durability than composite shutters, which tend to show damage more easily due to their structure. Polywood shutters are also resistant to moisture, fire, and termites.
High Quality Construction
The structure of a shutter has a key role in its resilience. Polywood shutters use tension control pins that prevent the louvers from becoming loose. Epoxy-coated stainless steel staples give increased strength. Polywood’s core is solid, and its joints are reinforced and glued , resulting in tremendous sturdiness. Our Ovation shutters are the only five star wood shutter in the world and include two different types of joints: dowel joints and mortise and tenon joints, which adds sturdiness. Sunburst is the sole place which makes shutters constructed with extreme durability in mind.
Sunburst Shutters makes it a priority to take the utmost care in the measuring, construction, and installation processes to give you elegant custom shutters that match your windows perfectly.
Color Which Lasts
You want shutters that will look brand-new decades after the initial purchase. Some composite shutters are prone to fading or yellowing over the years. Our Polywood shutters are covered with a special seal that uses UV-inhibitors so your shutters won’t fade or yellow. In addition, a quick once over with a dustrag is all that’s necessary to keep your plantation shutters spotless.
When selecting shutters and window coverings, the product’s warranty is another key detail. When choosing a top of the line shutter, you would benefit from a warranty to guarantee your investment. Our Polywood shutters include a lifetime warranty against any imperfections that might occur in materials, workmanship, paint finish, or installation. Our Ovation shutters come with a warranty against any manufacturer imperfections.
