The benefits of using either wood, vinyl or aluminum shutters are many. Not only will they instantly add a timeless look to your home, but they also offer precise light control which controls damaging UV rays, while helping maintain energy efficiency.

At Blind Advantage you will find both the Eclipse brand vinyl shutters and the MaxxMar brands of wood shutters. Both brands are locally produced right in Ontario, helping support the local economy while also reducing carbon emissions during transport. The close proximity of these suppliers allows for great levels of custom shutter options for your home as well.

Keeping you home cool in the warm months of a typically blazing Ontario summer means you will want to mount some sort of blind, curtain or shutter in your east, west and south facing windows. This will allow you to control the amount of heat, light and UV rays that enter your home through these highly exposed windows. This will save you money over time as you will have to expend less energy cooling your home. In those frigid winter months the right shutter also has an insulating effect that can help keep you house warm by keeping that cold air outside where it belong! You can save money all year long with the right shutters installed on all your windows. not only that, but all these features come from an attractive and classic window treatment that can fit in any style of home from modern, to classic to new style chic.

No matter what style of shutter you choose, or which material be it a wood, vinyl or an aluminum shutter they can all have these very beneficial features in addition to their great looks.
