Learn How To Select A Sturdy Shutter In Miami
Last month, a previous client contacted one of our Texas locations. The client had their home destroyed by a tornado earlier this year, but their Sunburst Polywood® plantation shutters held out.
Hopefully, your shutters won’t need to survive a natural disaster. But there are a number of points to look for when looking for shutters in Miami that are durable and will look beautiful 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 of our Polywood shutters. Read our lifetime warranty.
The first thing to be sure of when you want a long-lasting window treatment is the material it’s built from and the way in which it’s built. For wood shutters, look for something built from hardwood with a reputation for being sturdy, straight, and lightweight. Both high-grade teak and basswood (the woods our Ovation® shutters are built with) meet this criteria.
If you’re in the market for engineered shutters, choose a product made from a solid compound such as our Polywood® shutters. These shutters are sturdier than composite shutters, whose weaker composition is more susceptible to chips and scratches. Polywood is also resistant to moisture, fire, and termites.
The structure of a shutter is an important piece of its sturdiness over time. Polywood shutters are made with tension control pins that let them keep the perfect amount of “give”. Epoxy-coated stainless steel staples give increased protection. Polywood’s core is solid, and its joints are fortified and glued to give unrivaled strength. Our Ovation shutters are the only five star wood shutter in the world and include two different varieties of joints: mortise-and-tenon and dowel, which adds sturdiness. We are the only company that makes shutters built to last a lifetime.
Sunburst Shutters makes it a priority to take special care in the measuring, manufacturing, and installation processes so that you receive picture-perfect custom shutters that match your windows without a hitch.
You want shutters that will look brand-new decades after the initial purchase. Some composite shutters are prone to fading or yellowing over time. Sunburst’s Polywood shutters won’t ever lose their luster, due to a unique finish that blocks UV rays that causes fading. Both our Polywood and Ovation shutters are a breeze to keep dust-free by easily wiping with a cloth.
When selecting shutters or other window coverings, your warranty is one more important factor. When selecting a premier shutter, you need a warranty to guarantee your investment. Our Polywood shutters are backed by a lifetime warranty against any imperfections that might occur in materials, workmanship, paint finish, or installation. Our Ovation shutters come with a warranty which protects you from any manufacturer imperfections.
