Darik Neilson

You know what you can expect when you install plantation shutters in your Las Vegas home: appealing looks, fantastic light control, and protective insulation for a comfier home. But what if something unexpected happens, and you need to replace your window? What should you do with your shutters? 

Luckily, we can help. This is what you need to know about shutters and replacing your windows.

You don’t need to replace your shutters when you replace your window

Maybe the question we’re asked the most about shutters and replacing windows is if you can replace your windows without getting rid of your shutters. The answer in nearly all cases is yes! It’s pretty uncommon that a set of plantation shutters will interfere with replacing a window pane, and even in those rare instances they’re easy to detach from the window frame and reattach after the work is done.

There might be a rare case where your new windows might interfere with your custom shutters, for instance if you’re installing tilting windows or casement windows. If that’s the case, you may still be able to keep your shutters. Our shutter installers can devise a solution to accomodate the new windows, whether it’s a new frame or changing the mount on your shutters.

With The Right Shutters, You May Not Need Replacement Windows

Why are you replacing your windows? If your window is starting to show signs of cracking, you should definitely replace it. But what if you’re trying to replace your window just because you need more effective insulation, or a better looking window?

If that’s the case, what you might really be in the market for is an effective window treatment. A great insulating window treatment like Polywood faux wood shutters can improve your temperature control better than installing a double-pane window. With shutters, you can revamp the look of your windows, but with much less hassle.

Moreover, an investment in shutters is a more profitable investment in your home, because they are both an architectural feature and an aesthetic addition.

You Don’t Need Any Extra Work to Put In Shutters

Some homeowners in Las Vegas believe that you have to take out your windows, frame, or trim in order to have shutters put in. That’s absolutely not the case. Even if your windows have an unorthodox shape, way of opening, or tilt a certain way, Sunburst can build a set of shutters that work perfectly in tandem with your current setup. From a unique mount that pairs with your existing trim, to a custom build that makes room for a window lever, there’s no extra work necessary.
