Chances are that unless you’re in the market for shutter hardware, you’ve never thought much about it.
The same cannot be said for Robbie Hokum, founder of iHinge.com.
Not only has Hokum been in the building products industry for over 20 years, but he was specifically drawn to shutters because they “easily enhance a home’s exterior while also providing protection to coastal homes’ windows.”
Additionally, Hokum placed an emphasis on shutter screen doors because he noticed the industry was using sub-par materials. Hokum knew he “could provide high-quality, affordable, stainless steel products” that would both look good and perform for years.
For those who need shutter hardware or shutter screen doors themselves, Hokum has some advice to offer.
- Make sure the materials are made of high-quality steel and are sustainable.
- Select products whose package includes the size shutter that the individual product works best with. There are so many sizes, shapes and styles of shutters. The best products are the ones with the style, shape and size that hardware fits.
Hokum also wants iHinge customers to have the necessary details about the window and type of shutter before going into a store or online to buy parts. This is because all windows are slightly different. Customers typically need the measurements for their windows’ trim, including the depth, thickness and how they envision the shutter opening and closing.
Hinges and shutter hardware may be what Hokum sells, but it’s his customers that really make the job.
“It is an honor to work with great people and provide them with high-quality products that meet their needs,” says Hokum.
