20 Jun Repair Your Own Shutters – Better Than a Make-over
Have you ever considered the impact your window dressings have on the overall appearance of your property? Most home owners look after their lawns and gardens, keeping them neat and tidy. They repair their fences, apply paint to the exterior when needed and do everything they can to make their homes attractive. Often, though, they neglect to look at their windows from the outside, to see what others see.
Fix Small Problems before they Become Big Ones
Sometimes, window dressings such as shutters and blinds also need to be repaired, and if this is overlooked, the best kept dwelling can begin to look a little shabby. Not only does this detract from the welcoming ambiance of the property, but by leaving these minor repairs until they become major ones, they are more difficult and costly to fix.
Shutters are a favourite window dressing for a range of reasons, and regardless of whether they are made from western red cedar, aluminium, hardwood or synthetic materials, they are very resilient, and hold up extremely well against the extremes of our climate.
Do-It-Yourself Repairs Unnecessary with Normal Care
We use all of these materials in the range we manufacture at the Newport Custom Shutters facility in South East Queensland. With our modern manufacturing techniques and the 25-plus years of experience we have at making high quality shutters, there will be little need for do-it-yourself repairs if normal care is exercised.
There will always be occasions however, when accidents happen and shutters become damaged. Just ask any parent who has held a teenage party at their home. The most common type of damage occurs when the shutter is struck by an object. Depending on the amount of force used, this can loosen the staples, take a piece out of the blade or damage a tilt-rod.
