What Makes Louver Shop of Charlotte’s Shutters Rise Above the Competition

Here are some examples of why shutters are useful additions to your space.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom create our shutters to fit your windows, no matter the size or shape. This creates fewer gaps in your windows for cold outdoor drafts to squeeze through and treated indoor air to get out.

This is notably crucial since windows are the worst culprit for energy loss. The U.S. Department of Energy approximates they can bleed up to 30% of your house’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood® Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s possible energy savings you can find on your heating and cooling bill year-round.

In the summer, you can open your windows while choosing to keep your shutters open or shut. This provides more influence over ventilation without your window treatments moving in the air current.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Since curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the options that shutters can. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control grants you the ability to set your shutters just how you like them. All while keeping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Tailor Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Charlotte, we create shutters to accurately fit your windows. You can determine your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Simple to Clean

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

Keep Warmer During Cold Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room seem cozier, plantation shutters create a gorgeous look that can keep your utility charges down.
