Frequently Asked Questions
Do I qualify for a free consultation?
Measure and estimates appointments are free within our service area with a minimum order potential of 2-3 shutters or 4-5 blinds or shades. Smaller orders can sometimes be accommodated with scheduling flexibility.
Do you use subcontractors for installation?
Unlike the big box stores and national chains that rely on subcontractor networks for installation and service, our installers are company employees who are product experts and dedicated to providing a pleasant and professional installation experience… They’re the best in the business!!
How do I clean my shutters?
Our shutters will look and feel like a piece of furniture. You should use mild soap and water if they truly need cleaning. However, most often it is a matter of simply wiping them down with a dust rag or cloth.
What are the advantages of composite versus wood or poly shutters?
Our composite shutters have an engineered wood core with polymer wrap that is 10 times stronger and more durable than paint. They’re moisture resistant, UV protected and carry a limited lifetime warranty to never peal, crack, fade, discolor or warp. Wood shutters are the best option when custom shapes and finishes are wanted. They can be light, strong and beautiful, but buyer beware: Like funiture, there’s a wide range of good and poor quality wood shutters on the market. Most low-cost wood shutters are less expensive for a reason – be very mindful and careful about quality. Similarly, there are several good and poor quality poly shutters on the market. Most are manufactured in China or Mexico. As with most products and services, you often get what you pay for!
