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.

Are your projects helping building the value of your home? Or hurting it? 

June 6, 2017
Thermalite Shutters

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.

Shutters Are Not All The Same

May 18, 2017
danmer-sale

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.

Tips To Easily Clean Your Shutters, Blinds and Shades

November 14, 2016
monday_november-14

Since we’re all getting ready for the holidays, it’s tough to find the time to finish home projects we may have started throughout the year.

Here’s a quick way to brighten up your home for the holidays: clean those dusty blinds, shades or shutters. Your guests will notice that something is fresh and new in your home, and all you’ve done is a simple refresh.  That way next year you won’t have to devote several Saturdays to cleaning the house.

CLEAN YOUR SHUTTERS WITH EASE: Window shutters can be either decorative or functional, and often times are both. Whether they are Danmer Thermalite, Heritage Wood, Ultraluxe or Plantation Shutters, they’ve added beauty and character to any home. However, over time, your shutters will collect dust, and their beauty can easily be overlooked. Routine cleaning is not only recommended, it is absolutely necessary. The good news is that shutters, are relatively easy to maintain, and cleaning is a breeze. Use a soft cotton cloth and mild soap and water to wipe the louvers, and then dry immediately with a clean dry cloth. Do not use any harsh chemicals or ammonia based cleaners. Throughout the year, you can use a feather duster to keep them dust free in all seasons.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR SHADES: It’s important not to begin by spot cleaning your shades. Start by dusting the shades, instead of starting with the stains. Whether your shades are Honeycomb shades, Roman shades, Sheers and Shading, or Solar or Roller Shades begin your cleaning process by using your vacuum’s suction hose with the soft brush attachment. Work your way from side to side all the way down the shade, and see the dust disappear.

 HOW TO CLEAN YOUR BLINDS: Regular cleaning will keep your Wooden Blinds, Skyline Panels, Solid & Stained Wood Blinds, Faux Wood Blinds and Vertical Blinds looking and working like new.

Your grandmother probably used this trick for cleaning blinds:

  • Fill a small bowl with white vinegar and find a pair of clean cotton gloves or socks
  • Put your hand inside one of the gloves or socks and dip the tip of the sock, or your fingers into the bowl
  • Run your hand or fingers along each slat to remove the dust and grime. You may need to rinse the sock or glove a few times
  • Switch back and forth between the two socks or gloves, soaking one sock or glove while you use the other

Important: Although this method is safe for most materials, do not oversaturate the blinds, especially if they are wooden. Water warps wood, so squeeze as much out as possible and dry immediately. Avoid letting the vinegar come into contact with your eyes or skin.

October 24, 2016
monday_october-31_nrv2

Halloween is around the corner, so it’s likely that you and your family are planning a fun-filled season full of tricks and treats.  Fun costumes, scary movies, haunted attractions, and other forms of spooky entertainment make for festive frights that are usually harmless.

But beware, as accidents do happen. The best way to avoid them is to ensure that precautions are taken to ensure a happy Halloween for all.  Here are a few helpful tips promote family safety, both in and out of your home:

  • When taking the kids on a trick-or-treat run, make sure they are wearing costumes with light colors, glow sticks, and/or reflective elements for maximum visibility to drivers.
  • If the kids are trick-or-treating without adult supervision, make sure they travel in a group, and only visit houses in familiar neighborhoods.
  • When driving, remain alert and drive slowly in residential areas where young pedestrians may be present.
  • If you’re hosting a Halloween party, be sure to inspect your home for possible dangers. Did you know that over 500 children have suffered strangulations due to unsafe blinds and shade cords over the past few decades in the U.S. alone?  Think about retrofitting your shades or blinds with cordless operations, retractable lift cords, cord tensioners, or wand controls.

Ready to make your window coverings child safe?  Call Danmer at (800) 684-3434 to learn more about window coverings with child-safe features, and from the Danmer family to yours, have a safe and happy Halloween!
