There is no single answer to this question. For a long time, we’ve been in business, and we’ve had a lot of positive feedback from people who have used our shutters, awnings, and blinds for a long time and they still work well for them.
The shutters we put in now are better than the ones we put in 20 years ago. To meet the highest standards, they have made a lot of changes and have been subjected to a lot of quality control tests. Our shutters are, in our opinion, one of the best things on the market today. During the first five years of use, we will repair or replace the shutters at no charge to you.
Here are some tips for taking care of your shutters:
In the rain, don’t open the windows because the product is not waterproof.
- Dust every day. Our ostrich feather dusters, which can be found in our showroom, are very good. Instead, a wet cloth can be used.
The tilt rod should be used to close the slats instead of being pulled outward.
- Keep the slats in the up position to make sure they’re all closed up and safe. To start, check that all the slats are closed. The slats will “pinch” if you don’t do this. This could cause some damage to the wood.
The front edges should be aligned when you close them. As time goes on, panels that aren’t properly closed and aligned will start to look a little wonky.
The slat movement may have slowed down over time. If this is the case, look down the side of each panel to see if there is a “tension screw.” With a Phillips head screwdriver, you can adjust the tension as needed, taking care not to overtighten.
- Do not try to take down the shutters on your own. The warranty will be void because of this. Please contact us if you want them to be taken away. We can talk about what to do next.
- Do not paint the shutters because they have already been sprayed, and painting them again will clog the parts that move them.
Yes, you can, but we strongly recommend that you have your shutters measured and installed by Sculli Blinds and Screen’s in-house team of experts because they can be very harsh if they aren’t done right.
Even though wood shutters are our most popular, poly shutters are great for places that get wet and humid, like bathrooms and garages. If you have a shower, PVC shutters are the best choice for windows that will be in direct contact with water, like the ones in the window.
