How to Choose the Best Custom Window Shutters
So you’re committed to improve your home and you’ve decided to purchase new window shutters. Where do you begin? Danmer Custom Shutters strongly suggests you use these 8 important questions to help guide you through your shutter shopping experience.

Are the shutters custom made for me?
Make sure your shutters are hand-crafted to your exact speficications, including color, finish and size to ensure your shutters fit your window flawlessly and match your décor. Danmer’s genuine custom shutters are made from the ground up to fit your size and shape of window, and made to match your décor…no exceptions!

How to Choose Between Wood and Poly or Faux-Wood Shutters?
There will always be homeowners who insist on wood shutters. But one alternative you should ask for is Thermalite™ Shutters. Unlike wood shutters, Thermalite will NEVER peel, crack, warp, burn, or discolor. They don’t lose tension so they work perfectly for many years. And the water-based finish insures safety with no harmful toxic effects.

How Fast Can I Get My Shutters?
Danmer is the shutter manufacturer, right here in California. This gives us the ability to install your custom shutters faster than anyone else in the industry. Many companies only assemble parts manufactured overseas, which can take weeks to arrive. Danmer shutters can be installed in as little as 3 days from your measuring appointment+.

Are You Fully Licensed and Insured?
The Contractors State License Board regulates California contractors, while investigating over 20,000 complaints each year. Ask any shutter company about their installers: Will the person who installs your shutters be licensed, bonded, insured, factory trained and certified? Do they have a minimum 10 year track record installing shutters? Danmer’s license is #574304 and we’ve NEVER had a complaint filed gainst our installers with the CSLB.

What’s The Right Shutters For My Home Environment?
The Thermalite™ Shutter Insulating System was created to reduce energy consumption in your home, insulating your windows up to 3x better than wood shutters, keeping your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Thermalite is made of a non-toxic material that’s flame retardant, water resistant,and produces very low VOCs.

Why Is Made in USA Important?
Danmer Custom Window Shutters are manufactured and assembled right here in the USA. We believe that investing in your home is an investment in rebuilding America. Other companies will also claim that their products are made in the USA, but in reality many are only assembled in the USA from foreign manufactured parts. Danmer shutters are produced here in the USA using safe and reliable materials.

Why Is 24/7 Customer Service Important?
Make sure to ask if the shutter company provides customer service 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to address any questions that may arise. Also ask your shutter company if they provide their customers with online order status, so you can see your from start to finish.

Why Is The Warranty Important?
Here’s what to look for in the fine print: insist on a custom window shutter warranty that’s actually transferable to the NEXT homeowner. A transferable warranty is desirable because it will likely increase the resale value of your home. Trust a company that will give you a copy of the warranty; that’s the Danmer Difference. Custom Window Shutters have gone through a remarkable transformation in the last few decades, with product and service options that you ought to know about before you make a shutter decision. You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to get your shutter company to tell you about the full range of options available. You deserve straight answers in a timely manner so that you can make the best shutter choice for you and your family.

Increase Security with Home Shutters

Although curtains, drapes and sheers are lovely to look at, they do not always give you the privacy that you need to keep your family secure. At night, when a light is on in a home, it allows strangers to see in from pretty far distances. If you have home shutters that fit properly, it eliminates this invasion of privacy. This is extremely important for single females and families with children of any age. Not to mention, if an intruder tries to come in through a window in the middle of the night, there is an increased chance that you will hear them if you have blinds.

You Can Still Hang Curtains with Home Shutters

Some people assume that if you have home shutters then you can’t decorate with curtains, but this is not true. Although the shutters we have here at Danmer are certainly stylish enough to standalone, there is no reason you can’t hang curtains, sheers, a valance or anything else in front of them. There are plenty of rods that offer the depth that is needed to hang these fabric pieces in front so the shutters are still easy to operate behind them.

  • Masterpiece Shutters – These are custom-made to personalize and complement your space. Photography or art is printed directly to the louvers to act as a piece of art when the shutters are closed.

Information on Home Shutters

Home shutters have a surprisingly long history dating back to ancient Greece. Shutters have played a similar role as long as they have existed, namely to provide light control, privacy, and ventilation. Today shutters still function this way with the additional benefit of providing insulation for your home. The added insulation power of shutters can lower your heating and cooling costs, even more so if you choose a high quality synthetic shutter.

Why Are Home Shutters Popular?

Home shutters, in particular plantation shutters, are a popular window treatment choice among homeowners as they add function and style to a room. While shutters are no longer the sole barrier between bugs, animals, rain, and thieves and your home, they still play a crucial role in adding privacy and blocking sunlight. There are a wide range of shutter styles available to fit the décor of your home, as well as your budget.

Home Improvement Tips for Those Pressed for Time and On a Budget: Home Shutters

Home improvement commercials, do-it-yourself blogs and television shows make redecorating the interior of your home seem like a quick and easy project. Unfortunately, you may be pressed for time and can’t completely dedicate yourself to a complete home makeover. When you factor in your budget, it may be time to go back to the drawing board and to see what you can realistically do to improve the look of your home.

Rather than DIY or try to squeeze multiple projects from a small budget, choose one project to impact the entire feeling of a room or even your whole home. Installing custom window treatments in a room or your home, such as wooden home shutters, is a great way to update your décor within your budget and without having to dedicate months of your life. Home shutters are available in a variety of wood stains and colors to complement your existing décor.
