Window Treatments to Help You Sleep

March 8, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-05-19 at 11.09.29 AMAs you may already know, the United States will observe Daylight Saving Time on the March 13th when we’ll set our clocks forward an hour at 2 a.m. (losing an hour), and won’t set them back an hour until November 6th at 2 a.m. (when we’ll gain an hour).  This system, originally conceived by Benjamin Franklin in 1784, was later adopted by many countries in an effort to save electricity and take advantage of early daylight hours.

Though many would agree that the extra daylight is a welcome sight, not to mention a harbinger of warmer weather and more time for outdoor activities, many of the same people would also agree that they’re not looking forward to losing an hour of sleep as a result of the time change!  And what may be even more inconvenient, the season to follow is so full of early morning light that it can become very difficult to sleep in again until fall comes back around.

Fortunately, there are ways to get around it.  The easiest would be to start sleeping in a room with no windows, but where’s the fun in that?  The best option is to treat your windows with adequate window coverings that let you control the amount of sunlight that gets into your home.  Danmer’s Thermalite Shutter Insulating System can be beneficial three-fold:

Thermalite Shutters were specifically designed to reduce energy consumption   by preventing temperature gain or loss through windows.

– This prevention can reduce your home energy bills by up to 35%.

– Thermalite Shutters allow you to have maximum control over incoming light.  Benjamin Franklin would approve!

Advice for Your Kitchen Makeover

October 21, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 11.14.33 AMSeeing your kitchen windows with brand new shutters for the first time can be a revelation! Who knew the kitchen could take on such a sophisticated look? Well, this is what happens when you invest the right amount of time and energy into your home improvement projects. In the midst of all the excitement to get your renovation done, however, many homeowners overlook one crucial detail that can significantly extend the life span of their new window coverings: the choice of materials for your shutters or blinds.

Your kitchen shutters, for example, must be able to withstand exposure to moisture from the sink , from cooking and from the dishwasher. Choosing shutters for your kitchen – or even a bathroom for that matter – that are made from solid hardwood may not be a wise choice. Over time, wood is guaranteed to warp, chip, peal and even discolor from the effects of water and moisture.

How to avoid this costly mistake? Make sure you get design help from a Window Covering Design Specialist through a FREE in-home consultation right at the beginning of your renovation project. Make sure your selections are a good balance of beauty and function. Chances are you’ll avoid premature wear and tear of your window coverings in the long run.

So EXACTLY what material should you choose for areas of your home that often contain higher amounts of heat and moisture? The answer is a synthetic material for shutters or blinds are your best choice. Genuine Thermalite shutters from Danmer are water resistant, flame retardant, and guaranteed to never crack peel or discolor, making them a perfect fit for kitchens and bathrooms. If you’re looking for a natural wood grain look, select a water resistant faux wood option that will bring elegance to your room, while holding up well in moisture and humidity.

HOW TO REDUCE YOUR HOME COOLING COSTS IN STYLE

September 23, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-09-23 at 4.09.19 PMOne of the best ways to survive California’s hottest days are to seek shelter indoors, where an effective A.C. unit can become our best friend. Often times, the most convenient place is in our very own home, and though we can find comfort in our icy manufactured breeze, we may actually “lose our cool” when it comes to paying the price for such convenience — the dreaded electric bill.

Unfortunately, this is a common problem that doesn’t leave us with many options.   Though we’d like to turn the dial down on the sun, it simply isn’t possible, while hanging out in cooled public places can be even more costly than the home A.C.. After all, frequently attending movies, malls, and dining out can have outrageous additional costs of their own. So what’s the most efficient way to stay cool without breaking the bank? The best way may be easier than you think.

Look no further than your own window treatments. Proper window coverings can make a big difference in the battle against your utility bills, and by keeping your home properly insulated, you’ll use less energy and save money at the same time — it’s a win-win!

The most efficient window coverings by far are Plantation Shutters. The right shutters properly installed, will put a significant dent in your ever-hungry energy bill. Danmer manufactures a patented shutter known as Thermalite. The Thermalite Shutter Insulation System will provide up to 3x the insulating properties of typical wood shutters, and can reduce the amount of heat transfer and airflow into your home.

Thermalite Shutters can also save kilowatt hours, which additionally helps save on your heating and cooling bills, and can lower energy bills by up to 35% — Thermalite shutters will actually pay for themselves in reduced home energy bills.

Regardless of your methods for beating the heat, be sure to stay hydrated and take sunscreen if you’ll be out in the sun for long periods of time. Stay cool!

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 2.09.54 PMSummer is finally here and you have some time on your hands to clean out the house and get a fresh, organized start to the season. There’s nothing like that first hot summer day where you get to open all of the windows and let fresh air into the house while you clean. While chores like vacuuming and organizing clutter are on most people’s minds, child safety checks may not be.

Danmer Custom Shutters has created a simple safety checklist for you to use:

  1. Examine all shades & blinds in your home for exposed or dangling cords.
  2. Make sure there are no accessible cords on the front, side, or back of the product.

  4. Position cribs, beds, playpens and other furniture against walls that have no windows and no window cords.
  5. Permanently anchor all loops on every window covering cord anywhere in your home to the floor or to the wall.
  6. Ask your Danmer Designer how to replace older window treatments with cordless ones.

Over five million window coverings have been recalled in recent years because of injury and death to babies and young children. Recalled products include vertical and horizontal blinds, roll-up blinds, Roman shades and roller shades.

Strangulations and injury can occur anywhere in the house where children can wrap these chords around their necks or become entangled in the loops. This can happen quickly and silently.

Please use our easy safety checklist to help protect the ones we love.

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?

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?

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.

Why Thermalite Shutters are the Best Synthetic Window Coverings

January 25, 2015
french-doors6

french-doors6When it’s time to buy new window coverings, you have lots of options. There are hundreds of colors, styles and materials to choose from, but which one is the best value. Synthetic window coverings have a distinct advantage over hardwood, aluminum and fabric alternatives.

Advantage of Synthetic Window Coverings

Synthetic window coverings, as opposed to those made out of hardwood, aluminum or fabric have many clear advantages.

Better Insulation – Synthetic materials insulate far better than wood and other materials which can help reduce energy costs over time.

Longer Lasting – Wood will warp, aluminum will rust, and fabric will become worn over time, but long lasting synthetic materials will keep looking great for years to come.

Eco-Friendly – You may not think about window coverings as being eco-friendly, but synthetic window coverings do not use any of our precious natural resources. They also won’t need to be replaced as often, and when they do, they are completely recyclable.

Why Choose Thermalite?

Synthetic shutters are good, but Thermalite Shutters from Danmer are even better. These are not your typical synthetic shutters. One of the biggest differences is that the entire shutter is made from a solid, non-toxic polymer material. The competition typically offers cheaper, hollow louvers that do not insulate as well as Thermalite Shutters and they don’t last as long.

Thermalite Shutters are also American-made and have been for overdesigned and built for 35 years. They are manufactured here in the USA, not overseas. Thanks to this high-quality manufacturing process, Danmer also offers a comprehensive warranty including a lifetime warranty on all moving parts. Thermalite Shutters are also guaranteed to never warp, crack or peel.

For longer lasting, high-quality window coverings choose Thermalite Shutters from Danmer.
