10 Rules for Buying Shutters

Ten Reasons Why Buying From Sunburst is the Best Choice

Buying from the right shutter company is important. Not only do you want a smooth, efficient installation, but you want a product that stands the test of time and works as well ten years down the line as it did the first day. That’s why we’ve come up with a list to help you make sure that your choice is the right one for you.

  1. Deal with a company you trust

What you get depends on what you choose. Quality, follow-up, warranty, installation are all factors that depend on the company that you choose, so choosing a company with a proper history of service will get you the highest quality shutters that will continue to serve you throughout the years. Here are two factors that can help you determine the quality of the company at a glance:

  • Longevity – a company that has stayed in the industry for a long time often has developed a long list of satisfied customers, which can be used to prove their merit and eye for quality.
  • Size – Size doesn’t always matter, but in this instance, smaller companies often lack the buying power to provide you with the competitive pricing that you deserve. Additionally, they also have less means to expand outward with researching and developing new products.
  1. Warranty

A company with an established reputation can back up the warranty that comes with their products. No matter how good the guarantee is, should the company go out of business, their warranty is worthless. That’s why a large company with a long term of service and an established reputation is your best bet in staying around for a long time, so that it can continue to serve you long into the future.

  1. Measurements and Layout

When you are getting your quote, you should be wary of quotes given over the phone. A skilled estimator should come directly to your residence to take precise window measurements. This way, they know exactly what needs to be done to fit your vision and can give you the most accurate quote for the job.

  1. Top Quality Manufacturing

When buying shutters, a company that actually builds its own shutters offers the best deals, assuring you of factory-direct prices. You will also get the most accurate answers and timely responses because the company that makes their own products will know the most about it.

  1. Installation

A good installation is just as important as having a good product. Shutters are often more difficult than other window treatments to install. Employing a company that does its own installation ensures that one company is responsible for everything. This increases accountability and allows the company to carefully monitor every step of the process.

  1. Aesthetics

The right company will provide you with the options that you need to realize the vision you have of your home. Not only will the right company provide you with the latest trends, but will also stock treatments that are timeless so that your house can look great even as the current trends shift.

  1. Budget

The right company will give you a quote without additional fees or raising it at the end.

  1. Material

There is no magic formula for delivering a lower price: it simply comes by offering lower quality. Better quality products tend to have more options, and the right company will give you an exhaustive list of options along with material that is built to last and built to please.

  1. Construction

Besides carefully considering the material, a potential buyer also needs to scrutinize the construction of the product. For blinds and shades, you’ll want to inspect the headrail for strength and rigidity. For draperies, you’ll want to look at the quality of stitching and the hardware. For shutters, ask about features like tension pins that ensure the louvers remain tight, stainless steel staples with epoxy coating that are nearly impossible to pull out, and paint finishes that are baked on to withstand heat and moisture.

  1. Independent Testing

The right company will use independent testing to verify the claims it makes about its products. Through durability, heat resistance, fading, cracking, and insulating testing, each claim that the right company makes should be able to be backed up with the proper proof.
