The location of your shutters is irrelevant to insulation. What is relevant is the installation of your shutters. If your shutters aren’t fitted correctly, chances are that insulation will not be great. Shutters need to be snugly fitted into the opening, making sure that there is no space between windows and its coverings.
No. Shutters do not entirely cover the view. You simply adjust the shutter to what opening percentage you like. In some cases, shutters can actually lead the eyes towards the outside.
This depends on whether you have interior or exterior shutters. Exterior shutters will require more maintenance as they are exposed to sun, rain and wind. This can dull the paint on your shutters over time. KATHY – NOT SURE HOW OFTEN THEY NEED TO BE SEALED OR PAINTED – CAN YOU PLEASE HELP?
There are different ways of cleaning your shutters, depending on the type of material you have. If you have aluminium shutters, cleaning with warm water and soap is advised. If your shutters are made of timber, regular dusting is a must. Most shutters are treated with dust-repellent paint. This helps reduce dust and prolong the quality of your shutters.

Paulownia Plantation Shutters have a beautiful grain and are lightweight a lightweight timber. Paulownia is a very stable timber and is less prone to bow, warp or twist easily. Also known as the Empress Tree, it is one of the fastest growing trees in the world, growing to its full maturity in only 10 years. When harvested, it is easy for the trees to regenerate from the stumps, making it easy to restore crops.
Basswood comes from the Tilia family of wood and has a beautiful grain and texture to it. This can be enhanced by adding a stain finish or a polyurethane paint can be added as a finish, which makes the shutters scratch proof – perfect for the kids room or a window that gets opened and closed often.

Plantation shutters are installed inside as they are made of timber that is easily ruined by rain. The PVC shutters, which are more durable in wet-areas of the home are not strong enough to withstand outside elements and will not last. They are best suited and will thrive indoors only.
The best tool to clean your Plantation Shutters is this duster designed to easily rid dust from your plantation shutters. You can purchase these from our showroom or request one before installation so our installer can bring it with them when they install your shutters. It is ideal to dust your plantation shutter regularly. If you don’t have this shutter duster, use a dry cloth to remove debris and if there’s still dust or marks, use a slightly damp cloth to wipe gently. Make sure to dry immediately with a clean dry cloth as leaving your shutters damp can ruin them. Especially if they are basswood or paulownia.
From the time of your consultation and final measure our lead times are subject to change – our sales consultants will be able to give you a more accurate time frame at the time of your consultation. The average time from time of deposit to installation is usually in the 4-6 week range, but this is subject to change based on demand.
