It’s likely that you have invested a lot of time and effort in choosing the perfect shutters for your home. Aside from the time you’ve spent browsing the internet for inspiration, measuring your windows, and picking the perfect color, it’s also likely that you’ve invested a fair amount of money in purchasing your dream shutters. To protect your investment by improving the lifespan of your shutters, it is worthwhile to make another sensible investment in high-quality exterior shutter hardware.
Those who choose the option to nail or screw their shutters to the exterior of their home are often disappointed that the shutters deteriorate and need replacing much more quickly than expected. This is because by screwing or nailing the shutter, you don’t just damage the shutter, but you also prevent access to the back of the shutter so you can’t reapply protective paint. As air can’t circulate around the back of the shutters, moisture can’t evaporate easily and so gradually degrades the shutters. As you can’t access the back of the shutter it’s unlikely you’ll be able to see or fix the degradation before it’s too late.
If you choose to mount your shutters with proper shutter hardware there is no reason, with a bit of care, why your shutters shouldn’t last you a lifetime. Shutter hardware allows you to open and close your shutters easily as well as holding them back securely when not in use. Allowing you to shut your shutters isn’t just so you can use your shutters; it also helps you maintain your shutters with ease as you can access all sides of the shutter panel or even remove them if required.
In addition to the practical aspects, mounting your shutters using hardware is the perfect finishing touch to the outside of your home. It smartens the appearance of the shutters and as it is slightly away from the wall, it creates a desirable shadowed appearance.
