With so many companies selling plantation shutters it is hard to determine how to find the best shutters for the best price. Sometimes the lowest price is not always the best quality. At Orange County Shutters we sell the highest quality shutter. On the market today, with awards to prove it. And at the lowest price for high end construction. But sometimes it just may be so you want to take a few major things into consideration before making your final purchase. The most important factor is the quality of the shutters. You want to make sure that the plantation shutters are made of 100% basswood and not MDF or particle board. These type of materials are not good for making a quality shutters are prone to moisture damage. You also want to look at the paint finish on the shutters. At Orange County Shutters we use 5 layers of acrylic. In order to create a high end paint finish that will last a long time the painting process is very important. On a good quality shutter the painting process will take up most of the production time (on a high end shutter around 5-7 weeks). If a company claims that a custom shutter can be made in less than 5 weeks that should raise a red flag as to the painting process being used and to the quality of the shutters being produced. Also you want look at the samples that are being shown to you. Don’t be afraid to look it over very good and feel the smoothness of the paint. Also look on the edges of the louvers to see if they are smooth and painted over as well (some manufactures fail to paint the louvers fully and the edges are rough and lacking paint). Another sign that a manufacture is a good quality producer of shutters is that if they have the ability to do specialty shaped shutters and more custom options on the product.
The last thing that you should do when choosing whom to use for your shutter needs find out a little more about the company. Look them up on the Better Business Bureau to see what problems they have had if any and how they fixed them. Ask for references from other clients they have done in your area. Check with the State Contractors License Board to make sure they are licensed, bonded, and insured and that the license is not expired (you should not to business with a company who does not have a contractors license). Also make sure if a irvine shutters company subcontract installers that you get the name of the company or person installing and that the company or person is licensed, bonded, and insured as well and verify the information.
