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.

Should You Have a Shutter Custom Made for Your Storefront?

Have you been trying to decide what to do with your storefront window? You probably love the natural light, but then for a few hours a day there is likely a blinding glare created, especially if the rays reflect off any metal racks or mirrors in the store. Not to mention, this increases the store temperature so the air conditioning has to work harder. If these are not good enough reasons to have a shutter custom made, perhaps you should think about potential thieves lurking in the window when no one is around. Alternatively, how do you feel when you are there late doing inventory yourself, knowing that someone else could be viewing you as a potential target?

A Custom Shutter Adds a Point of Interest

Many people are not aware that a custom shutter can be made with a picture on it. Therefore, when you close the shutters, customers in your store notice a beautiful piece of art in the window. This is a powerful marketing tool because it makes your store much more memorable than your competition down the road.

Choosing Custom Shutters

Choosing Custom Shutters

Why use Custom Shutters and not Ready Made?

The reason to use custom shutters over ready-made brands already in the store is that the ready-made shutters may not fit your windows.  They are all made to the same specifications but you may have odd sized windows in your home.  There is nothing worse than spending money on a set of shutters, only to find that they are one or two inches too short or too long.  Either case will make them have an improper fit or they will not improve the look of your home.
