What Makes Louver Shop of Western Carolina’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some proof of why shutters are useful additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to fit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This allows for fewer gaps in your windows for cold outdoor air to sneak through and treated indoor air to escape.

This is incredibly useful since windows are the biggest culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates they can let out up to 30% of your family’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more effectively than wood shutters. That’s potential utility savings you can recognize on your heating and cooling bill year-round.

In the summer, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This gives you more control over ventilation without your window treatments jangling in the wind.

2. Better Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t possess the options that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to set your shutters just how you like them. All while prohibiting the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Western Carolina, we make shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Easy to Clean

Shutters are simple to clean. All you want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need complicated washing or high-priced dry cleaning on a regular basis.

Stay Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem cozier, plantation shutters offer a beautiful look that can keep your utility charges down.
