 If you're looking to add to the beauty of your home's exterior, shutters are an excellent choice. They add character, a historic feel, and immediately bolster curb appeal. But, just like windows, they can either be your best friend or your worst enemy. You don’t want shutters that will make your house look bland or tacky. Picking the right shutter for your home might seem intimidating, but our team wants to make it easy. Here are the three types of shutters we provide and stock!

Raised
 The raised shutter was designed to block out the elements and provide basic security. Today people decorate their homes with shutters to create a personalized sense of style and protect their home from weather. They’ve become an accessory that is both practical and classy.


Louvered
 Louvered shutters can give your home that historic twist you’ve been looking for. They can protect your home from sunlight and can add privacy depending on the direction of the louver. Make your home more comfortable and add architectural charm that will make your home even more beautiful.


 Board & Batten
 B&B shutters have been historically used on rustic styled homes, but have recently been brought into the city. They add a homey-country feel that can give your home a classic look like no other. Board and Batten shutters will speak to your sophisticated style, separate yourselves from the others on your block.

 Crafted with care and an advanced polymer formula, our high quality shutters will perform beautifully, without maintenance, for many years to come. Our shutters resist fading and hide scratches to keep a freshly painted look for years. The wood grain finish has a real wood look and widths allow full coverage over the lines when replacing old wood shutters.  Shutter fasteners allow for easier mounting into siding and brick. Adding shutters can completely change the look of your home. When you buy shutters from us, you don’t have to stress over their quality or looks.

  Ignoring problems with your home’s damaged or faulty windows can cost you. Replacing them might seem expensive, but it can ultimately save you money. With today’s highly energy-efficient windows and modern designs, there are plenty of cost-saving, aesthetic and functional advantages to replacing windows. To help determine if it’s time to replace your windows,  we’ve put together a couple things to consider.

  • Do they need to be replaced?

  • If your windows aren’t performing as they should, you’ll often feel it, and you’re losing money. If opening and closing is difficult, if air leaks in, out or around the window, or condensation or fogging occurs on or between glass panes then the heat or air conditioning you’re paying for is slipping outside. Drafty windows can be more expensive than new ones.

  • Will they improve energy efficiency?

  • Replacing old single-pane windows with today’s energy-efficient double- or triple-pane glazing can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs. When the wind stops cutting straight through the glass, you’ll recognize the difference.

  • To add to overall energy efficiency, choose products that have qualified for the Department of Energy’s ENERGY STAR® standards. These windows are proven to get the job done and keep your house properly protected.

  • What else should you know?

  • Windows can deteriorate at different rates due to differences in sunlight and weather exposure, so while one side of your home is fine, the other may need attention.

  • If the sizes of your original windows are no longer available, special windows can be manufactured to your specific size and style needs.

     Advantage Windows can help you with all your window needs, give us a call and we can help decide what would be best for you.
