What to Look for When Buying PVC shutters 


Do you know what to look for when buying blinds in New Zealand? What some people may not know is that cheap PVC shutters can emit some pretty nasty chemicals, and for that reason, it’s important to only buy from manufacturers who have had their products tested for these toxins, and can provide a certificate to prove it.

When a manufacturer or supplier has nothing to hide, they’ll be more than happy to include a product and components warranty with their PVC shutters. Don’t settle for anything less.

An expert isn’t always on hand during the shopping experience, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t run a few quick tests by yourself. Quality PVC shutters have a certain heaviness to them, with aluminium being the #1 choice for the blade inserts. They certainly don’t sound hollow when you tap them!


 So, what sets quality PVC shutters above their cheaper counterparts? 

The best PVC shutters available have a high-quality finish and are designed to last, so that you can enjoy your home’s well-dressed windows and shutter blinds for years to come. When buying your shutters, be sure to ask if the blinds have been treated with UV stabiliser paint, as this makes a big difference to how well your shutters can take the heat. Make sure to ask about the warranty on the paint finish as well.

Staying informed with a little know-how from the experts means you’ll be better prepared to make the best value and quality choice for you and your family. Now that you’re armed with this insider industry-knowledge, congratulations! You’re ready to start the exciting process of shopping for your brand-new PVC shutters.
