What Makes Louver Shop of Gulf Coast’s Shutters Noteworthy

Here are some reasons why shutters are useful additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to match your windows, regardless of size or shape. This leaves fewer breaks in your windows for cold outdoor drafts to sneak through and warm indoor air to get out.

This is incredibly important since windows are the guiltiest culprit for heat loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates they can leak up to 30% of your family’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s possible energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill all year.

In the warmer seasons, you can open your windows while keeping your shutters open or shut. This provides more power over ventilation without your window treatments moving in the breeze.

2. Increased Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t have the flexibility that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control grants you the ability to fix your shutters just how you want them. All while stopping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Gulf Coast, we make shutters to accurately fit your windows. You can pick your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Simple to Clean

Shutters are not difficult to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may require a lot of effort for washing or pricey dry cleaning fairly often.

Keep Warmer on Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room appear comfy, plantation shutters give a beautiful look that can keep your electricity expenses down.
