Four Reasons To Install Custom Plantation Shutters

Are you sure you know everything you should about custom plantation wood shutters? Well, here are four things you should know about this topic.

Four Reasons To Install Custom Plantation Shutters

  1. Plantation shutters enhance a broad range of architectural styles. They’re perfect for adding a touch of elegance in both contemporary and traditional spaces, and they offer a reliable way to manipulate scale in rooms with soaring ceilings.
  2. Wood plantation shutters are the perfect window treatment solution for any room. Although often used in living areas, they also look great in kitchens, breakfast nooks, bathrooms, and bedrooms. Customize them to fit large picture windows, long narrow sliders, dormers and bay windows.
  3. The need for privacy is a good reason to use plantation wood shutters. When properly sized and installed, plantation shutters provide solid coverage and can prevent prying eyes from seeing into your home.
  4. Controlling sunlight is easy to do once you install plantation shutters. When you custom design your shutters, make sure you’ve designed your set to swing freely. You’ll be able to open and close your shutters in any number of ways to keep direct light out of your home.

At Longhorn Solar, you can further personalize your plantation shutters by choosing a louver size that works for your design scheme. The typical louver is 3.5 inches, but you can also order them in 2.5 and 4.5 inches. You can paint or stain our shutters, and we can also add a tilt rod for easy louver adjustment.

Advantages of Home Solar Screens

Did you know that 40 percent of an electric bill is heating and cooling? Using home solar screens can help reduce costs by reducing heat in the summer and reducing heat loss in the winter. Solar screens accomplish this by reducing, absorbing, and disbursing solar heat before it can reach windows. 

Solar screens also help reduce glare. They provide a method of controlling natural light in a home. Solar screens provide more privacy. While keeping your privacy, the view outside stays unobstructed.

Solar screens come in a variety of colors, styles, and openness. The fabrics fall into three categories that include light, dark, and high performance reflective styles. This means screens fit preferences and designs of homes, regardless of color choices.

Quality Solar Screens

Quality is the important factor when constructing solar screens. They are a uniquely woven mesh. The screens, made with a strong vinyl-coated polyester, ensure strength and resilience. The design of screens provide an 80 to 90 percent blockage when installed. If they aren’t made right, they won’t do their job.

The screens we install fit well when your windows are large and small. They also fit well in areas that are common rooms where light sets the atmosphere. The installation allows more light into the room while still absorbing and redirecting heat. This allows the benefits of both light control and temperature control in the home.

The screens are great at controlling heat and light. With professional installation, they improve the look inside your house, and help save money on utilities. Contact us today. We are happy to answer any further questions and provide quotes.
