At Shutters by JA Paint Shop we only use basswood for our custom wood shutters. When it comes to plantation shutters, we know our customers want something that will last. These custom shutters are an investment and enhance the value of a home. For this reason, we provide the best materials possible. There are other materials available on the market, and if a customer wants their blinds in a different material, we will make it happen. However, in our experience, basswood resists warping, twisting, fading and any other problems that these other materials cause. For instance, a lot of companies use PVC, a type of plastic that is hollow. It is low cost, but the appearance is very plastic looking. It can also yellow with too much sun exposure over time.
The biggest benefit of wood shutters in the lowered energy bills. They will block out UV rays and heat in the summer while still letting in sunlight. In the winter, the strong wood material will act as a barrier to the cold. Plantation shutters are also very low maintenance. They are a permanent fixture in the window and our craftsmen provide excellent installation. These shutters are easy to clean with a simple dusting, which is important in the desert atmosphere. They also resist sagging and warping.
If you want superior service and quality products, you have come to the right place. At Shutters by JA Paint Shop we only use the best materials and we start all our projects with raw materials. We also conduct free estimates before we start any work. Contact us today to set up a consultation.
