When it comes to window decoration, shutters are the must-have accessory for 21st century living. They are not only very durable and sturdy but look elegant and classy and are very easy to clean. They protect from heat and cold, damaging UV rays and offer complete privacy. Shutters are manufactured with the highest quality materials and are particularly suited to the harsh weather conditions of Australia. They are available in different materials such as timber, aluminum and PVC, which is a very popular choice for the more budget conscious customer while it can still have the look of timber. High tech polymers and an aluminum core can add more strength to shutters installed. Coatings can also be applied to prevent peeling. Plantation timbers provide a low cost finished product which is highly weather resistant and can be colour matched to compliment the interior.
Choosing lockable shutters may entitle you to a discount on your homeowner’s insurance as it guarantees more safety from unwanted intruders. With normal use, shutters are considered indestructible.
