Home improvement season is in full swing, and homeowners everywhere are taking on projects as small as replacing kitchen tiles, to as large as full basement renovations. But what many homeowners don’t realize, is that not all home improvements help the overall resale value of a house. In fact, some can actually hurt it.
Since some home improvement projects tend to be inspired by fleeting seasonal trends, it’s good to make sure that they can be easily and inexpensively updated down the road, if the trend, for whatever reason, doesn’t catch on. Otherwise, it’s always a safe bet to limit big projects to carefully planned, and universally functional improvements that will always be in demand, in case you should you ever choose to sell your home.
One of the best home improvement projects worth undertaking is a window treatment upgrade. Window Shutters, a fine example of function meeting design, can give a room an elegant, timeless look and feel, and can compliment any decor. Danmer’s Shutters, such as those from the UltraLuxe Shutters and Thermalite shutters, include a very unique added benefit: each comes with a transferable warranty, which increases the value of your home, and can earn you more money if you ever decide to sell it.
Whatever home improvement projects you may be tackling this season, be sure to do plenty of research before starting, and consult industry professionals with any questions you may have. If your improvements should happen to include new window treatments, Danmer is here for you ever step of the way. Contact us at (800) 684-3434 to get started.
Ordering custom window treatments can be a bit daunting! With so many styles, colors, and varieties, it can be hard to determine which would be best for your home. The best tip? ALWAYS consult with an industry professional before making such a decision, but here’s some advice to help you separate the outstanding from the inferior:
- Many shutter companies claim their products are made in the USA, but in reality, most of them are built from foreign parts and only assembled in the USA. Ask about this!
- Several shutter companies use materials that are not environmental friendly, and in fact are composed of substances such as glued wood chips and formaldehyde. Not good!
- Some shutter companies use hollow vinyl end caps and weak plastic clips to secure their shutters. These items will not last long and will need repair and adjustment regularly.
- There’s only one company that can build and install genuine Thermalite and Ultraluxe Shutters, which are patented and considered the industry’s finest Shutters.
- Look for a Diamond Coat finish on the Shutters, using a non-toxic, water based material which is safer for your family.
- ALWAYS insist on a transferrable warranty, one that will actually add value to your home when you resell the property.

Plantation shutters, for example, offer maximum versatility, allowing significant control over the amount of light – and heat – that enters or leaves your home. Danmer’s Thermalite and UltraLuxe Shutters have a patented Insulating System built right into them that help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
The bottom line is that the right window treatments can actually pay for themselves by lowering your utility bills by up to 35%, turning daylight savings time into energy savings time! Click here to learn more about how Danmer can help you make the most of your savings.

High-Quality Materials and Design
The most noticeable difference between UltraLuxe custom shutters and other brands is the materials and design. These sturdy shutters are built from Premier Hardwood™ frames and stiles that are designed to last and fit your large and uniquely shaped openings without sagging or bowing over time. The louvers are none other than Danmer’s Thermalite™ louvers which are made from a non-toxic, synthetic material that is guaranteed to never peel, crack or warp. The louvers operate on the patented Duraglide Louver Tension system that ensures the louvers will never need to be adjusted or tightened. Thermalite louvers are also fashioned from a solid polymer, making them sturdier than the competition and more energy efficient. They insulate up to 3 times better than wood shutters which will save you money on energy bills.
Because UltraLuxe custom shutters are made from the highest quality materials, Danmer feels confident enough to stand behind them with one of the most comprehensive warranties in the industry. Owners enjoy a 10-year warranty on the painted finish, 25-year warranty on workmanship and labor, and a lifetime guarantee on all moving parts which includes the Duraglide louver tension system. The warranty is even transferrable to the next homeowner, thus increasing the value of your home.
Made in America
Another great reason to purchase UltraLuxe custom shutters is because they are made in America. Other shutters may be imported from foreign countries. Even companies that claim their products are “made in the U.S.A.”, may just be assembled in the U.S. but the parts are all made abroad. When you purchase custom shutters from Danmer, all parts are manufactured and assembled locally in California. Not only will you enjoy a high-quality product, you also get the satisfaction of knowing that your investment supports American jobs and your hard-earned dollars are staying here.
When you know all of the facts about the UltraLuxe custom shutters, the difference is clear. While some brands may look similar at first glance or have a cheaper price tag, they are likely to require repairs or need to be replaced completely. Invest in your home by investing in UltraLuxe shutters.
