Top Features To Look For In The Best Exterior Window Shutters

by Lucas Cox

Shutters have been in use for a lot of years, and it is not without reason. These home additions provide unmatched aesthetic appeal to set your home apart from every other house on the block. While picking a style of window shutters you like for your home should be easy, you will find that narrowing down the choices can be extremely difficult. There are multiple different models from which to choose, and every one of them will have different features and advantages to boast. If you want to make sure you get the best exterior window shutters for your home, here is a short list of features you should be looking for:

UV Resistance

Window shutters for the outside of the house can be made from all different kinds of materials, from wood to plastics. The thing you should be looking at, no matter what material the shutters are made of, is if they boast UV resistance. UV damage can cause a lot of problems for untreated window shutters. You can see the surface of them break down, the colors fade, and the shutters themselves start to fall apart. Whether it is that the shutter is made from a UV-resistant material or if it has a UV-resistant coating, this feature is very important to have.

Solid Color Composition

Shutters that are made out of plastics or vinyl tend to be the most popular for a few reasons, but one of the best reasons to go with these shutters is they have a solid color construction. This means the color of the shutter is not just surface-deep; instead, the shutter is the same color completely through the unit. In other words, if you were to break the shutter open, it would be a solid color all the way through. This makes the shutters much less likely to require painting after years of use, or to fade because the color finish is wearing away.


You already have enough to take care of to make sure your home looks good on the outside. You will regret adding shutters to make your home look better if they always need a lot of time and attention to look their best. Opt for the shutter models that are given a maintenance-free attribute because these shutters are going to be much easier to clean and keep looking like new without a lot of work from you.
