Are Your Window Coverings Safe for Your Child?

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.
  3. Use Kid Safe Certified cordless window coverings in all homes where children live or visit.
  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?
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.

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.

Add a Custom Window Shutter to Your Sun Room

Although a sun room is meant to be bright, open and cheerful, this does not mean that sometimes a relief from that light isn’t welcome. Many people do not even put any window treatments in their sunroom, but then they find themselves not using it nearly as often as they probably would if they installed a custom window shutter.

It is hard to enjoy Sunday morning breakfast out there with the family when everyone on one side of the table is being blinded by a glare. Not to mention, it is nearly impossible to sit out there on a hot steamy day because there is no light control.

Have a Custom Window Shutter Made for Your Sunroom

If you are going to add a custom window shutter to your sunroom, you may as well go all out and have one designed with a picture on the back. This way, when the blinds are closed, they will bring charm to the space.

For example, if you have a nautical theme, you could have anchors and lighthouses added. For a tropical theme, you could create an ocean full of fish. These shutters give you the opportunity to really personalize your space so you will want to show off your sunroom whether you are allowing the sun to shine in or not.
