How To Find A Sturdy Shutter In Cincinnati

August 08, 2016

One of our stores in Texas was recently contacted by a previous customer. The client had their house wiped out by a twister earlier this year, but the home’s Sunburst Polywood® plantation shutters made it through the ordeal.

The client’s house had to be completely rebuilt due to damage, but there were just a few louvers damaged on one shutter panel on one area of their residence. No other shutter even had a scratch! The customers are in the process of rebuilding their house, and once they finish, the Sunburst store in Texas will reinstall the original shutters in their reconstructed home.

Hopefully, your shutters won’t have to withstand a natural disaster. But there are a number of points to make sure of when looking for shutters in Cincinnati that are durable and will add charm to your home for decades.

*Disclaimer: Sunburst Shutters doesn’t guarantee that their our products will withstand a tornado or other natural disasters, but this is just one example of the durability and resilience of our Polywood shutters. Refer to our lifetime warranty.

Sturdy Material

The number one quality to be sure of when you need a resilient window treatment is the material it’s made from and the way in which it’s built. For wood shutters, look for ones made from wood with a reputation for being strong and resistant to warping. Our Ovation® shutters are built from high-grade basswood and teak, which both have these qualities.

If you’re in the market for faux wood shutters, look for a product made from a solid polymer like our Polywood® shutters. These shutters have more durability than composite shutters, whose weaker composition will more likely show chips and scratches. Polywood is also resistant to fire, moisture, and termites.

Expert Construction

The structure of a shutter plays a large part in its durability. Polywood shutters include tension control pins that prevent the louvers from becoming loose. Stainless steel staples coated in epoxy give improved protection. Polywood’s core is solid, and its joints are secured and glued , resulting in spectacular toughness. Sunburst’s Ovation shutters are the only five star wood shutter in the world and utilize two different varieties of joints: mortise-and-tenon and dowel, which adds sturdiness. We are the only company that offers shutters put together to survive the most extreme conditions.

Sunburst Shutters makes it a priority to take the utmost consideration in the measuring, manufacturing, and installation processes to make sure you get elegant custom shutters that complement your windows without a hitch.

Color Steadfastness

You want shutters that will be just as beautiful long after the initial purchase. Other composite shutters are prone to fading or yellowing over the years. Sunburst’s Polywood shutters won’t ever suffer from discoloration, due to a unique coating that blocks ultraviolet rays that causes fading. In addition, an easy wipe down with a cloth is all there is to keep your plantation shutters spotless.

Protective Warranty

When purchasing shutters or other window treatments, the warranty is an additional major detail. When choosing a premier shutter, you want a warranty to guarantee your investment. Our Polywood shutters include a lifetime warranty against any problems that might occur in materials, workmanship, paint finish, or installation. Our Ovation shutters come with a warranty which protects you from any manufacturer imperfections.
