Shutters once served a very different purpose than they do today. In the past, they provided privacy, security and protection from the elements. Today, they’re mostly used for aesthetic purposes. While shutters are certainly less functional than they once were, they can still be an important component of a home’s appearance. If your home has shutters, you want them to look their best. At Topper Construction, we’ve installed thousands of pairs of shutters and carry most major brands of vinyl shutters. We can also special order any type of custom wooden shutter you might want.
Styles of Vinyl Shutters
When you think of a beautiful southern home with big framed windows that are highlighted by classic shutters, you’re picturing open louver shutters. These shutters have clean lines, and will add the perfect window highlighting detail to any home. They’re available in a wide variety of shapes, colors and sizes.
Where open louver shutters are slatted, raised panel shutters are solid. Raised panels shutters make a bold statement and that statement can get even bolder if you choose bright colors. No matter what type of home you have, this option will add style and curb appeal. Like open louvered shutters, these are also available in a wide variety of shapes, colors and sizes.
Board-n-batten shutters create a similar effect to board-n-batten siding. These shutters are made to look a bit more handmade, with vertical boards and classic details. Just like the other options, these come in a few different styles, and many different colors.
Any style of shutter can be enhanced by adding decorative hinges or shutter dawgs.
Shutters Add Curb Appeal
Shutters are one of the simplest, but most effective ways to improve your home’s curb appeal. They perfectly highlight the important focal point of your home, your windows. On the flip side, shutters in disrepair are one of the first things other people notice about homes.
