With plantation shutters Central Coast property owners are capitalising on their practical benefits and upmarket looks, second only to windows wide open to glorious views that only Mother Nature could manufacture.
Timber plantation shutters have that undeniable classic elegance—satin or matt-finished to emphasise natural grain and a timeless appeal.
Cedar, especially Western Red Cedar (WRC), is the optimum timber for plantation shutters. WRC is light weight and very stable. Wide slats are possible and they will resist warping, bowing, cupping, as well as rot and insects.
That said, the best material for your plantation shutters is not necessarily timber.
You may have noticed that fashionable interior design pages regularly feature plantation shutters… in white! And while this trend began with timber and gloss white paint, the look has led to plantation shutters made from alternative materials—materials that can confidently be said to be superior to timber for the purpose.
PVC Plantation ShuttersDon’t be fooled into thinking that PVC Plantation Shutters are products of lesser quality. Certainly, the PVC ‘Thermo’ shutters we supply at Bay Blinds & Doors are no ‘faux timber’ also-rans. These are products you need to know about.
Consider the white shutters of the above-mentioned interior design pages. Imagine that gloss paint in the kind of heat and solar radiation that plantation shutters Central Coast windows typically face. The VOCs (volatile organic chemical compounds) released as a consequence will be most unhealthy.
The best choice for your family would likely not be painted timber.
Our Thermo Plantation Shutters are built to solve this toxic situation. Not only are they VOC-free, they can handle the heat without buckling and bending like a cheap toy. They’re also not bothered if their location is moisture-affected.
White is only one of the finishes. You can get Thermo Plantation Shutters as timber lookalikes too.
Something else you need to know about is that the product warranty for Thermo Plantation Shutters is longer by far than that accompanying the timber version.
