Timber Shutters in the Gold Coast
If you’re thinking of buying timber shutters for your Gold Coast home, come on in to Sheerview Window Furnishings for the best assistance and helpful advice. We have a terrific range of quality products to choose from, and you are sure to find something to meet your needs.
When should you choose timber shutters
Timber isn’t the only choice you have when it comes to choosing shutters. Times have changed, and now other choices exist. Some popular alternatives to timber include aluminium and PVC.
Timber shutters are the traditional choice, and will have appeal to traditionalists. They’re also likely to have aesthetic appeal for many people due to their more natural looks.
You can tell the difference between the various materials, and it’s not only a matter of looks you’ll need to consider.
Timber shutters need to be painted or varnished to protect them from the harmful effects of water. If not sufficiently coated in protective layers, which leads to swelling. This can eventually result in warping and cracking of the wood, which are obviously undesirable.
Various species of wasps, ants, and termites find wood attractive and may attempt to make a home in it. You will need to perform regular inspections to make sure they don’t.
These are the main drawbacks to choosing timber shutters, but there are some positives as well. Timber shutters are less expensive than aluminium shutters, and they have good strength while being relatively light compared to aluminium.
Another advantage of timber shutters is you can paint them absolutely any colour you want, whereas other shutter materials tend to come in a limited range of colours and are not particularly easy to paint.
Timber also just feels and looks a bit nicer. It’s a natural product. Timber shutters always add a touch of class because they’re so traditional and have almost universal appeal. You will never get that “weathered beach hut look”, for example, with metal or plastic.
When timber is not necessarily the best choice
You probably should think twice about installing timber shutters in areas that are likely to be constantly wet or where there is likely to be considerable prolonged exposure to direct sunlight on an almost daily basis.
Timber shutters are also not quite the best idea for those who don’t have the time or physical ability to keep up the regular maintenance that wooden shutters require.
It’s not so much that timber shutters absolutely can’t be installed in these circumstances, but just that they may not be the best option. Alternative choices may make more sense in such cases.
