Choosing window coverings for an older home in Milton (heritage or century home) requires extraordinary attention to detail. Sample pieces are required to ensure the right fit, measurements need to be double- and even triple-checked.

Nuances of working on century homes

Experience is key to ensuring the right shutter specifications are followed and the integrity of the window and window trim is maintained.

For instance, the bottom window shutter only allows us to keep the character of the windows and enhance visual aesthetics, light control and privacy. Frames were included on all four sides but customized for the best fit and clearance of unique windows.

All shutter framing options

Our shutter framing options allow us to install shutters on all different shapes, sizes and ages of windows. Casing frames, trim frames, L frames, Z frames and more allow us to puzzle together the best shutter applications for small, large, angle shaped and specialty shaped windows. Depth plays a large factor in options as well. You want to make sure you can open and close your louvers/slats on the shutters once installed.
