27 Aug Aluminium – a Great Alternative to Timber Shutters
If you live anywhere along the grand and beautiful Australian coastline you know that the harsh sun, wind, and sea salt elements can degrade even the best quality timber and synthetic features. If you are looking for a product that you can rely on to offer security and privacy, but still look elegant and protect you from the harsh coastal elements you cannot go past the quality aluminium shutters proudly produced by Newport Custom Shutters.
What Can Aluminium Offer?
Aluminium is a durable material that is immune to the harsh treatment, sun, wind, salt and sand can provide. It is able to endure all conditions come rain, hail or shine for many many years. Performing as a screen against prying eyes is one of its many qualities. You are able to position the screen to allow natural light and air into your home whilst offering you the utmost privacy. When attached to the outside of your home, be it over windows or across a veranda, patio, or deck, you can rest assured that you will not need to remove or replace it for many years to come. This style of treatment can double as a security screen or door and even offer protection against cyclonic conditions. Aluminium may be light weight but it is big on strength. You can use aluminium shutters to create a new outdoor room! Simply by enclosing a small courtyard you can provide yourself with a small haven to retire too in good weather. If you are dreaming of having an outdoor room somewhere why not consider creating one in this way? It is so easy. All you need to do is work out where you want it and how big it is going to be. The “walls” are created by these shutters and then all you need to do is add whatever ground treatment you want, be it paving, stones, timber or a combination of all three! Add the plantings of your dreams and voila – a new space is created.
Colours and Styles Abound
Aluminium is a very flexible material to work with. You can produce just about any shape and size to suit your windows and doors. It can be powder coated to a wide range of colours to suit any decor. You can even have it masquerade as timber by using the wood grain finish.
