What Makes Louver Shop of San Antonio’s Shutters Rise Above the Competition

Here are some reasons why shutters are helpful additions to your window coverings.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom create our shutters to suit your windows, regardless of size or shape. This allows for fewer gaps in your windows for cool outdoor air to come through and heated indoor air to escape.

This is especially critical since windows are the most responsible culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates they can leak up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more effectively than wood shutters. That’s prospective energy savings you can notice on your heating and cooling bill all year.

In the warmer seasons, you can open your windows while keeping your shutters open or shut. This affords you more control over ventilation without your window treatments clattering in the air current.

2. Increased Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t have the adaptability that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control lets you regulate your shutters just how you want them. All while prohibiting the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Tailor Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of San Antonio, we make shutters to specifically fit your windows. You can select your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Not Difficult to Clean

Shutters are not complicated to clean. All you require is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may call for complicated washing or expensive dry cleaning more often.

Feel Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel cozier, plantation shutters provide a gorgeous look that can keep your utility bills down.

Not sure whether you should choose traditional wood shutters or faux wood shutters?

Our free, in-home design appointment will help you make the right selection. Plus, you’ll understand your cost before your purchase with our Complete Comfort Pricing™.

When you work with Louver Shop of San Antonio, you’ll be purchasing an American-made window treatment that will look great for a lifetime. We guarantee it.
