Buying A Las Vegas Home? Install Shutters First.
Buying A Las Vegas Home? If you are new to the area you will find out quite quickly about our Las Vegas heat, and why it is so important to get window coverings that will block it. Believe it or not, the installation of window coverings will actually save you money in the long run because your air conditioner will have to work harder in our summers than if you leave your windows without coverings. In addition to this obvious point, the installation of higher end window coverings like basswood shutters will go even further to keeping out the heat than curtains or shades. You must realize that your windows take the sun’s rays straight on, and will get quite hot as a result. This heat goes through the window and heats the air on the other side, and without a form of shade to block it will heat up the air in the rooms of your home. This is one of the advantages of plantation shutters in desert communities like Las Vegas, as they provide the ability to control the heat and light that is distributed into your rooms, while at the same time staying clean looking and modern.
Las Vegas can be hard on any window coverings, shutters included. You will notice after only one or two summers that curtains will begin to fade and bleach out, as the materials are not designed to handle the heat levels that our city sees. The tougher that the window covering is, the better it will age but you must consider the materials that compromise the coverings like shutters and wood blinds as well. If shutters are made of poly instead of wood, they will not age as well over time in our sun. If they are made of cheaper woods and wood blends, they will not age as well as basswood does. You must realize that the shutters and shades are constantly exposed to extreme heat, and over time will crack and begin to split or come apart. Only shutters and blinds constructed of the best materials will age without cracking or splitting over time, so it is far better to go with a better material to begin with. In areas like Las Vegas, the quality of the construction of shutters and shades is not just for the look of the product the day it is installed, but it will also dictate how long those products will last. Nobody wants to replace shutters because they got old looking, so it is far better to use a company like Onyx Vegas that specializes in top quality products in order to protect your investment.
The wood that Onyx uses is imported from Europe, and is superior to other woods because of it’s more uniform gains as well as toughness. It is put through a process of kiln drying and stabilizing that takes far longer than our competition, because these are the steps that are going to create a product that holds up to the heat over time. The pieces are formed and the shutters are built to exacting standards, and nothing leaves our factory that doesn’t meet our expectations. Our attention to detail and our use of the best woods make Onyx superior to all competition, and over the course of years you will notice why. Most shutters will look good on the day they are installed, ours look good over time.
