A Guide to Vinyl Shutters


Most people would agree that wood shutters are beautiful. They add class and grace to most any home. Whether exterior or interior, wood shutters are special. For many people, however, these shutters are cost-prohibitive. With the rising cost of living, the added cost of expensive shutters is simply not something everyone can justify. What if you can't afford wood shutters? Do you have to just live with bare windows or walls? No, not anymore. An alternative is available: vinyl shutters.

Vinyl shutters are much less expensive than their wooden counterparts. They offer other benefits, as well. Vinyl is better able to withstand the abuses of time and inclement weather. Unlike wood, they will not crack, peel, or fade. Vinyl shutters are also better able to stand humidity and moisture, which makes them a perfect choice for use near swimming pools, hot tubs, or beaches. Wood tends to swell or warp under these conditions. Vinyl shutters are also easier to clean and maintain. They can usually be wiped down with a wet rag.

There are a few things you should look for when buying vinyl shutters. For example, if you are looking for "wood-look" vinyl shutters, do not buy translucent ones -- the more opaque the better. If you are installing your vinyl shutters outdoors, make sure they are made of outdoor-grade vinyl. For indoor use you will want to make sure that the louvers open and close easily for light and privacy control. Experts recommend buying shutters with aluminum reinforcements, especially on panels near the hinge. Whether interior or exterior, only buy vinyl shutters that come with a lifetime warranty.

With careful selection and accurate installation, vinyl shutters can add to the perceived value of your home. They help it appear classy and graceful. With the right product, vinyl shutters are an excellent alternative to costly wood.
