Window installation can add to the value of a home or business and also help with energy efficiency. However, selecting a good company is essential to getting the best results.
Renewal by Andersen has a variety of windows that meet Energy Star standards. They offer in-home consultations and advanced digital tools to help homeowners visualize their projects before they begin.
1. Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters combine the benefits of blinds, curtains, and window treatments all into one. They are very versatile and can work well with many modern interior design styles, from vintage to shabby chic or industrial to wabi-sabi.
They are popular because they can reduce glare on television screens and computer monitors, especially when they are kept partially open. They can also block excessive sunlight, keeping your home cool and comfortable. They are typically fitted right up against the frame of the window, and their slats are angled downwards to prevent light from penetrating the top part of a room.
They are highly desirable because they add to a home’s value, and they are timeless due to their design and aesthetic appeal. They come in several colors and materials, but Polywood plantation shutters are particularly desirable for their solid furniture-grade wood or faux wood finishes. These shutters are American-made and have the best warranty on the market.
2. Wood Shutters
For homeowners looking for a natural intrigue to their windows, wood shutters provide a warm, rustic appeal. Ovation wood shutters from Sunburst Shutters are constructed from solid furniture-grade teak and custom-made to seamlessly fit your windows. They’re offered in a variety of stains to match your home design.

3. Vinyl Shutters
Vinyl shutters are a new window treatment option that is gaining popularity. They are easy to clean and require less maintenance than wooden shutters. They are also resistant to moisture, making them ideal for areas like bathrooms or laundry rooms.

While they are a good option for homes in drier climates, they can rot in humid environments. They are also not as versatile as wooden shutters and don’t have the same aesthetic. They are however, a better choice than blinds because they can darken rooms and seal tightly to the window frame. They are also a good option for homeowners who want to reduce noise in their home.
