Southern Custom Shutters – An Insight

Adding the perfect shutter type to your home is a fantastic change. Your home’s personality is infused, and you accumulate equity. Custom external shutters come in a wide range of styles. First and foremost, there are operable and non-operable external shutters. Any that aren’t functional or don’t open and close are simply decorative. Hurricane-prone areas are the only places where you’ll find operable shutters.Feel free to find more information at Southern Custom Shutters (Concord).

There’s no chance you or your client couldn’t find what they’re looking for with non-operable shutters. Exterior wood shutters, exterior vinyl shutters, paintable shutters, synthetic wood shutters, and interior and exterior shutters are all available. They still make door shutters. When it comes to customising your house with shutters, the options are endless. Many online shutter shops have free delivery, which makes it much easier for homeowners and contractors alike. This ensures there will be NO Loss OF GAS, TIME, OR MONEY if you pick them up from a retailer. Not to mention that you’ll never find anywhere near the same range as you would if you went shopping.

Think about it: why wouldn’t you buy anything online? Someone delivers it to your home, you have 1000x the range, and you can tailor your shutters to the exact size and shape that you want. Many online retailers still have the custom shutter hardware you or your contractor may need to mount them in stock. I still recommend downloading them yourself and there are so many websites available that will show you how. This will save you a lot of money. I learned to drive on my own car for the same reason; I can’t afford to pay anyone else much of the time.

If you’re searching for how-to videos about how to instal them yourself, YouTube is a great place to start. Yahoo Answers! is also a valuable resource.

Shutters are usually made up of six screws per shutter. Each side has one in each corner and one in the middle. I’ll tell you how I’ve always mounted shutters; it couldn’t be any easier than any other trade. If not, draw a mark with a pencil based on each corner of your shutters, staying between 3/4in to 1in away from each edge, as having the holes so close to the edge will cause them to crack and break. You’ll need to drill out the holes after you’ve made your marks. You’ll need a drill bit that’s just the diameter of the screw’s shaft, not the threads. You don’t want to break your shutters and let water in, so be gentle when drilling. Then, with your shutter centred on your frame, mark out the holes you made in your shutters into the wall, remove your shutter, and literally drill into the house.
