Different window shutters have different life spans depending on their material and quality. It’s important to keep an eye on your shutters for damage as it might lead to termites, mold or excess moisture in your home.
Here are some tell-tale signs that indicate the time to replace window shutters.
The Shutters Are Warped Or Leaning Out Of Place
One simple way to check for this is by lifting the shutters and looking behind them to see how far they lean out of place. Shutters with a large gap behind them can be seen easily from the street. Even if it doesn’t seem that bad initially, if you notice at any point that it’s getting worse, it may be time to replace the existing window shutters.
The Shutters Are Leaking
It may seem unlikely, especially if your windows are closed tightly, but one of the easiest places for moisture to seep into the home is through the shutters. If you detect water or moisture coming through, you should get the window shutters replaced.
The Color Of Your New Window Shutters Are Different From Your Current Windows
Uneven shutters can also create a more mismatched look to the overall exterior of your home, and we are here to tell you that this is never a good thing.
The Window Shutters Are Hard To Use
If the shutters are hard to open and close, or if they stick in the frame, it could be a sign that there is something wrong with them.
If they’re not easy to use, you can’t get them to open when you need them, or you can’t close them tightly enough to keep out burglars. If you want to ensure your home’s security, it’s important to have well-functioning windows.
