From time to time interior and exterior shutters are going to get damaged. If you have wood shutters on the inside of your home, you've made a good investment and they should last a long time. However, as the years march on and the more use that the shutters see, the more wear and tear they will be exposed to.
If you’re talking about exterior shutters, severe weather, especially the kind we experience in Toronto, such as ice storms, freezing rain, torrential winds, and much more can do an incredible amount of damage to the exterior portions of your home, including the shutters.
Exterior shutters are usually nonfunctional. That means the slats won’t move and those shutters will not be meant to draw closed over the windows. As a result they’re much easier to repair than interior wood shutters that are designed with many functionalities in mind.
The common mistake homeowners make.
One of the most common mistakes Toronto homeowners make when they look to have somebody come to their home and repair their interior shutters is hiring the cheapest contractor they can find. That’s because they don’t want to spend a significant amount of money repairing these window treatments.
In truth, the contractor who doesn’t have any real, direct experience working with shutters may very well be skilled in a variety of carpentry aspects, but shutters are precision units. They deserve to have somebody who knows what they’re doing working on them to repair them in the best way possible.
If you end up trying to save money with a cheaper contractor to repair those interior wood shutters, you may be disappointed with their functionality afterward.
Keeping them looking and operating as they were designed requires regular maintenance, but sometimes it demands a bit more. If that’s the case right now, contact Canada Custom Shutters and have an experienced professional come to your home, analyze the condition of the shutters, and offer you an honest quote to repair them.
