Plantation Shutters It's all we do!
“I absolutely enjoyed working with Mike! He is very knowledgeable about shutters (the business name speaks for itself). He was very professional and gave me his expert advice when it came to deciding what kind of plantation shutters I should get for my new home since this was the first time I was purchasing them. I truly loved the fact that he offered free consultation. He measured all the windows and quickly provided the quote by printing them on the spot. Not only that, but he was not that “pushy salesman” trying to get you to buy right away. He was respectful by allowing me to have time to think it over and to call anytime if I had any questions. I’m very pleased with the installation of the shutters as they turned out to be very beautiful!”

How plantation shutters add R-value to your windows
You may not be aware of it, but about 30% of heating and cooling energy is lost through a home’s windows. Shutters come in many different materials including wood, aluminum, steel, and fabric, among others. The R-value of shutters varies depending on the material they are made of. It also changes based on whether or not the shutter has gaps—the bigger the gap, the lower the R-value. Shutters, like blinds, are better at preventing heat from coming into the house than keeping heat inside during colder seasons. Another benefit of shutters is that, depending on what type of shutter you install, they could add value to your home. One of the most popular types of shutters, considering energy efficiency, are plantation shutters. Plantation shutters are known for having the tightest fit against windows as well as having the thickest material (resulting in better insulation).
