What Makes Louver Shop of Columbia’s Shutters Noteworthy

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

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom create our shutters to fit your windows, no matter the size or shape. This leaves fewer gaps in your windows for frigid outdoor temperatures to come through and heated indoor air to get out.

This is especially crucial since windows are the guiltiest culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy determined they can leak up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s prospective utility savings you can see on your heating and cooling bill all year.

In the spring and summer, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This gives you more power over ventilation without your window treatments clattering in the wind.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Considering curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t provide the flexibility that shutters offer. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to fix your shutters just how you like them. All while prohibiting the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Crafted for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Columbia, we build shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can pick your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Straightforward to Clean

Shutters are not complicated to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may need complicated washing or high-priced dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer this Winter with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel cozier, plantation shutters offer a beautiful look that can keep your heating and cooling bills down.
