Great for All Purposes
Plantation window shutters are very popular both on commercial or residential properties. The shutters are fixed to the interior of the windows, ensuring that the life of the wood is extended. The wood can last for many years and should not need any renewing for up to a century, if looked after and maintained as said. Wooden shutters that are placed on the exterior of the windows may of course need more maintenance and need replacing after a few years as they are exposed to all weathers and climate change. You will be directed on how best to look after your new shutters by the company that have installed them, the experts themselves!
