Why You Should Consider a Z-Frame Shutter
Years ago, most shutters were hung like a protruding box around the window. The shutters were still classic looking but did create a look that affected the lines of the home. In some cases, they might even seem heavy and over bearing. Of course, the other option was to mount the shutter inside the window frame, but this often created gaps that needed caulking or else issues with inadequate sill depth for louver operation.
Then, along came the z-frame option - a semi inside mount frame that gave the window a framed look while moving the shutter back so as to eliminate the giant box hung on the wall effect. With that - a new era and interest in shutters was born. The classic look of a framed window with a shutter built in at an affordable price. Because of this innovation, shutters are very much in style and in some markets shutter sales are exploding.
Why? Because, the Z-frame shutter restores the classic cased window look, they last longer then any other window covering made, they are timeless in their appeal, and they are almost certain to add value to the home. The Z-frame shutter is a great option and has become the standard go to for most professional window covering professionals.
Wherever applicable, we at Latreia Blinds and Shutters, recommend the Z-frame shutter option.
