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

Here are some proof of why shutters are useful additions to your home.

1. Reduced Heat Loss

We custom produce our shutters to fit your windows, never mind the size or shape. This creates fewer gaps in your windows for cold outdoor temperatures to sneak through and heated indoor air to leave.

This is especially critical since windows are the largest culprit for heating loss. The U.S. Department of Energy determined they can leak up to 30% of your home’s energy.

Our faux wood LouverWood™ Shutters insulate up to three times more efficiently than wood shutters. That’s prospective energy savings you can note on your heating and cooling bill all year.

In the warmer seasons, you can open your windows while leaving your shutters open or shut. This affords you more power over ventilation without your window treatments clinking in the air current.

2. Enhanced Light Control

Because curtains can only be opened or closed, they don’t give you the flexibility that shutters offer. Our exclusive PerfectView™ Louver Control allows you to regulate your shutters just how you prefer them. All while stopping the tilt bar from cutting off your view.

3. Custom Made for Your Windows

At Louver Shop of Charleston, we produce shutters to precisely fit your windows. You can decide your material, louver size, color/stain and more.

4. Not Difficult to Clean

Shutters are straightforward to clean. All you need is a soft rag or a duster. Curtains may demand complicated washing or costly dry cleaning on a regular basis.

Stay Warmer on Chilly Days with Our Shutters

While curtains make a room feel cozier, plantation shutters offer a luxurious look that can keep your heating and cooling expenses down.
