Seven Reasons Why You Should Install Roller Shutters

Roller shutters come with a variety of incredibly benefits aside from the standard boost in security. Protecting your window and door frames from weathering, improving the energy efficiency of your home, and increased privacy are all potential upsides of installing roller shutters.

Improved Security

Roller shutters are extremely secure, offering your home an additional level of protection from intruders or opportunistic thieves. Roller shutters are the perfect way to ensure your ingress points are fully protected overnight. They act as an effective deterrent, and when that deterrent fails, they will still foil any amateur break-in attempt.

Better Insultation and Temperature Control

Exterior roller shutters also provide insulation for your building, improving temperature control. The additional layer of insulation around your doors or windows will help keep your home cool during the summer and warm in winter.

Conserve Energy and Reduce Bills

As the cost-of-living crisis rages and energy bills soar, one of the main concerns of both renters and homeowners is trying to reduce energy usage and bring those bills down. The additional insulation your home gets from installing roller shutters can also help reduce your energy consumption up to 60%.

Protection from Weathering

In addition to boosting insulation, and helping reduce your bills, roller shutters also provide weather resistance by protecting the most vulnerable parts of your home – your door and window frames - from sun, rain, and wind.

Light Control and More Privacy

Installing roller shutters doesn’t just provide extra protection from thieves and better insultation for your home, it also helps you control the amount of light entering your home, and gives you an optional exterior shutter for ultimate privacy.

Reduce Noise Pollution

Roller shutters offer an additional benefit of helping prevent the transmission of noises in or out of the property, blocking out outdoor noise pollution by up to 50%. This works both ways, and helps promoter privacy in your own home by reducing how much noise carries onto the street outside.

Gorgeous Aesthetics

Roller shutters can be designed in a range of styles and colours, so you can choose the best aesthetic finish for your property. Choosing the right design can add the perfect final touch to the exterior of your home, and can boost your property’s value when it comes time to sell!
