Tips To Guide You When Ordering Your New Shutters

When it comes to ordering new window shutters for your home, the process can be overwhelming, especially when you’re ordering them online. From the dimensions you use to the brands you choose, there’s always a possibility of picking the wrong thing for your home. Fortunately, there are also certain strategies that ensure you’re getting the perfect products the first time without the initial buying stress. Use these tips to guide you when ordering your new shutters to increase your odds of success. If you are unsure about sizing please give us a call we are happy to help.

Take Careful Measurements

The new exterior shutters you pick for your home should always correspond in size to your existing windows. So, it’s crucial that you have accurate dimensions in mind when going to place your order. For those who are looking to replace their existing shutters, getting these measurements can be as simple as checking the size of the older models. However, if this is your first set, you’ll need to base the dimensions on the interior of the window frame.

Consider Shutter Materials and Colors

You should also take some time to think about and experiment with various shutter materials and colors. Shutters, especially exterior shutters, come in a multitude of designs, shapes, hues, and materials, making them a great way to add a unique flair to your home’s appearance. But these options can make it difficult to make a choice and raise your chances of picking something that doesn’t match your style. For this reason, do a bit of research prior to making your decision. This will best ensure that you’re picking something closest to what you need.

Think About Your Mounting Options

Another important tip to guide you when ordering your new shutters is to plan out how you want to mount them. You can affix shutters to your home’s siding, or brick. Therefore, knowing how you want to install them before you have them in your possession is the key to success. Primarily, ask yourself whether you want your shutters to be more functional or decorative. Moving shutters will require hinges, while decorative shutters can be installed with hinges or Aesthetic Mounting kits.
