What Makes Louver Shop of Louisville’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some proof of why shutters are helpful additions to your space.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to suit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This leaves fewer places in your windows for frigid outdoor air to sneak through and warm indoor air to escape.

This is specifically critical since windows are the biggest culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates they can bleed up to 30% of your family’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times better than wood shutters. That’s potential energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

In the summer, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This affords you more control over ventilation without your window treatments clattering in the air current.

2. Better Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t have the options that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you leave your shutters just how you prefer them. All while prohibiting the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Louisville, we create shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Easy to Clean

Shutters are simple to clean. All you require is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand 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 more comfortable, plantation shutters give a luxurious look that can keep your electricity bills down.
