Over the years, shutters have become popular additions to many homes because it not only adds aesthetic value to the room, but it also increases the privacy in the home. Another bonus is that the low maintenance of plantation shutters and their adaptability to any type of design makes it a more viable option as opposed to having curtains.

However, several people, including homeowners, have fallen prey to various misconstrued opinions concerning shutters. These misapprehensions have led them to opt out of purchasing window shutters for their homes. 

If you’re looking for window treatments, knowing the difference between fact and fiction will help you make a smart purchase. At Plantation Shutter Inc., we pride ourselves on educating our clients, and with that in mind, we have debunked three of the most widely believed myths about shutters.

Myth 1: Wood shutters warp and twist.

While cheap and low-quality shutters may, a well-made shutter won’t warp or twist due to the quality of the material and the building process involved. This myth exists primarily because some people have only had experience with cheap flimsy shutters and don’t know what a shutter can and should be.

Myth 2: Poly is better than wood.

At Plantation Shutter Inc., we build both shutters with poly material and wood. We build and warranty them in the same way. The only difference between poly shutters and wood shutters is customization. While poly usually has limited customization options, we can do just about anything with wood.

Myth 3: All shutters are the same.

This is one of the most widely believed myths in the industry and is the reason people opt for cheaper options. The truth is that no two shutters are the same as all shutters are neither made equal nor identical. While they may look the same, significant differences are hiding behind those low prices. People usually end up paying more than the initial savings they thought they were getting when the quality of low priced options reveals itself.
