What Makes Louver Shop of Austin’s Shutters Stand Out

Here are some reasons why shutters are useful additions to your space.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom create our shutters to suit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This creates fewer gaps in your windows for cool outdoor temperatures to squeeze through and heated indoor air to get out.

This is especially important since windows are the guiltiest culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy has estimated they can leak up to 30% of your house’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more effectively than wood shutters. That’s prospective energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill season after season.

In the summer, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This gives you more command over ventilation without your window treatments jangling in the wind.

2. Better Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the flexibility that shutters extend. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control grants you the ability to set your shutters just how you prefer them. All while preventing the tilt bar from blocking your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Austin, we make shutters to specifically fit your windows. You can choose your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Not Difficult to Clean

Shutters are a breeze to clean. All you want is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may call for time-consuming washing or expensive dry cleaning fairly often.
