PROTECT YOUR HOME WITH ALUMINUM SHUTTER

Is there an area of your home that is constantly exposed to the wild forces of nature? Sadly to often than not, this is the case. Weatherwell Elite aluminum louver systems are loved by architects worldwide because they combine both cutting edge engineering with a modern, chic design that are able to withstand these forces. Unlike the past, there is no excuse for replacing the beauty ofaluminum louvers for usability and product sustainability. At The Window Outfitters we are proud to offer aluminum louvers that will enhance the appearance of your home, but will also provide protection against the forces of Mother Nature.

Since 2010, there have been 72 presidential major disaster declarations on average per year. This is a 30% increase from the previous decade's average. Between 2011 and 2013 the total extreme weather cost for the 34 most severe events totaled $208 billion in damage and 1,221 fatalities. - Daniel J. Weiss and Siri Manning, 2013: Extreme Weather, Extreme Damage

We have no control over Mother Nature. What we can control is how we choose to protect our outdoor areas which are exposed to these forces. The aluminum louvers you choose to install could be what saves your home when Mother Nature decides to strike. Weatherwell Elite aluminum louver systems are certified by the Miami-Dade county testing. This means that they have been tested and are certified to protect against extreme wind forces in hurricane prone areas. This helps everyone from architects to buyers know they meet unique requirements.

Weatherwell Elite has also considered the affects of salt and sun when designing our aluminum louver systems, and guarantees their ability to survive them. Other shutters on the market have external louver rotation mechanisms that are exposed to natural extremities. Weatherwell Elite is unique because the aluminum louver systems all have INTERNAL rotation mechanisms. This combined with the high quality powder coating over the aluminum guarantees the shutters will last for years of oceanside enjoyment. The Window Outfitters are so confident they provide 10 years structural warranty, 10 years standard powder coast and 5 years wood grain powder coat.

Imagine your the owner of this beautiful beachfront home. What could be less than ideal about living on the beach?

The family that does own this home wanted to be able to enjoy their covered patio at all times of the day; particularly after their long work days when they returned home. They were having trouble though with on shore and off shore "breezes", more appropriately described as strong winds which happened to be at their worst in the afternoon when the family wanted to enjoy their million dollar view. Multi-fold aluminum louver systems were the perfect solution and investment. The family could fold back the panels to enjoy their view when the winds were down, or close them up when the winds were present. An added feature of Weatherwell Elite is that they can also be locked in place. This way if the winds are bad while the family are out, they can lock them shut and their patio will be protected from the strong winds.

Aside from all the benefits already mentioned about our aluminum louvers, they are also always an attractive feature to add to any home.

ALUMINUM PLANTATION SHUTTERS, AN INNOVATIVE ALTERNATIVE TO EXTERIOR SHADE SCREENS

OUTDOOR LIVING AROUND THE WORLD HAS ALWAYS BEEN PART OF LIFE

For many years other countries have understood that the backyard is a whole lot more than a place to kick a ball. They build outdoor rooms to expand their lives drawing them into nature and a world of relaxation and play which nurtures their well being and helps them find their inner joy.

TODAY, AMERICANS WANT IT PART OF THEIR LIVES TOO

Americans are spending an increasing amount of time in sterile offices with artificial light and have a greater desire than ever before to have the relaxing and inspiring qualities of nature so they are building outdoor rooms.

CREATING A TRUE OUTDOOR ROOM

Patios, porches, decks, and terraces have always been popular extensions to the American home. However by simply adding the right combination of protection, privacy, furniture and accessories, Americans are creating a true outdoor room. A relaxing retreat just outside their door yet worlds away. It allows them to experience nature and the comforts of the indoors at the same time.

Open for a complete outdoor feel



Close the panels and operate the louvers to control the elements more efficiently than shade screens


THE CHALLENGE OF BLOCKING WIND RAIN OR SUN

However one of the first challenges to making their porch, patio,or deck a true outdoor room is enclosing it, and finding solution to protect their expensive furniture, TVs, sound systems and outdoor kitchens from the wind, rain and sun. An exterior shade screen is the immediate solution that comes to mind however, although the shade screen will reduce the sun and glare, it can’t effectively block the wind or rain. Weatherwell Elite, an aluminum plantation shutter, is fast becoming the popular alternative with its operable louvers that can close tight to completely block the elements or be angled to control the sun whilst still allowing airflow. Wetherwell Elite, is a popular outdoor space enclosure option all over the world, but seems to be largely unknown here in North America.  The outdoor plantation shutters offer another key advantage over exterior shade screens, flexibility. Aluminium plantation shutters have the flexibility to completely fold back the panels to enjoy the full view when desired,(they are available as sliding and bi-folds) to close tight, or a part option, which is where you keep the panels closed but angle the louvers so you can enjoy the view as mentioned above, and control the light. Shade screens only block the sun and are either up or down.

HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR OUTDOOR ROOM SECURE

The second challenge homeowners encounter when creating their outdoor sanctuaries is security. Americans are wanting luxury in their outdoor retreats and are investing in expensive accessories like media systems, kitchen gear, and furniture and decor. These can’t be secured with shade screens. Weatherwell Elite has key lockable panels and the ability to angle the louvers in any position and secure with “Louver Stay” its exclusive switch system. The louvers are so strong, that they can we walked up like a ladder. 

Aluminum plantation shutters are stunning alternative to a shade screen in this Palm Springs cabana


PRIVACY IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN FEELING COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OUTDOOR ROOM

Many of our back yards are exposed to roads or neighbors, and it is essential that our space is private if we are to truly enjoy it as an outdoor sanctuary. Unfortunately shade screens don’t offer any kind of privacy because they are transparent with only a tint. Weatherwell Elite ensures that the homeowner can achieve varying levels of privacy by controlling the louvers whilst still allowing the flow of fresh air which is the whole reason we are seeking refuge outside in the first place. Often a home owner doesn’t need to enclose their outdoor space, and simply needs privacy from one or two directions, in which case using Weatherwell Elite as privacy screen is a perfect solution.

OUTDOOR LIVING: The hottest summer trend in Dallas

Sometimes it is easy to get carried away redesigning and renovating the inside of your home before you consider your backyard. But, in order to keep up with the fashions, creating the perfect outdoor room is essential. Weatherwell Elite outdoor plantation shutters is the key to optimizing your outdoor area and will no doubt distinguish you from the masses.

It comes as no surprise, that Texas is hot! Nonetheless locals in Dallas love the outdoors. Once the summer heat arrives it only seems to get hotter and further away from ever-reaching autumn, let alone winter. But despite the heat, Dallas locals still want to make the most of the sunny weather and their weekend free from work; which we can all relate too. Our outdoor plantation shutters are designed so you can make the most of your outdoor rooms throughout summer.

On the weekend Dallas is buzzing with people searching for the best patio to sit and enjoy brunch with friends. But where do you go after brunch? You probably end up indoors relaxing back at home, or instead you’ll head to the mall. Installing outdoor plantation shutters makes it possible to enjoy the outdoors in the privacy of your own home. This means you can invite your friends back to your house to continue the fun in your own outdoor retreat.




Some recent customers, a young couple with two young children used Weatherwell Elite aluminum shutters in their brand new home in Arlington, Texas. Their outdoor kitchen was beautifully furnished, including a television, a barbeque and a green egg. They wanted to be able to block the glare from the television so they could enjoy watching the game in their outdoor room, but they also needed to protect their new furnishings from the sun and wind. After collaborating with our salesmen, they decide to install to types of outdoor plantation shutter configurations. They used two fixed panels on one side of the room, meaning they can only open and close the louvers.  While on the other side of the room, they installed multifold outdoor plantation shutters so they can completely fold back the shutters and enjoy their view when the winds and sun are down. Aluminum shutters were an easy choice for this family because they can now enjoy years of fun in their own backyard.

When you’re as passionate about barbequing and using your green egg as this retired couple in Keller, Texas, not being able to use your outdoor kitchen is downright depressing. They were having trouble with extreme winds and lack of privacy from the main road that they backed-up on to, so they stopped using their outdoor kitchen entirely. Therefore, they opted for outdoor plantation shutters with panels fixed as they only needed to operate the louvers. They originally called our salesmen wanting wood shutters but after learning that our aluminum shutters looked and felt like real wood, are are more durable and require no maintenance they opted for Weatherwell Elite in the walnut wood powder coat, which not only looks like real wood, but feels like real wood. The couple are now back in the outdoor kitchen enjoying their green egg and their famous BBQ sauce, and can now enjoy having their grandchildren over all the time to eat and watch television outside together.

In both cases, after installing our Weatherwell Elite aluminum shutters in their outdoor room, each family improved their outdoor areas but also managed to add value and curb appeal to their homes.
