The Busiest BLIND MAN
in Middle TN
Shutters are a a true testament to a home owner’s discerning style and sophistication. Shutters provide simplicity to the project. Once installed your work is done. To expand this, think of a fabric style products - so many styles, patterns, and colors choices. This can send a person into panic mode. Not with a choice like a Plantation Shutter. Shutters are proven time and again to benefit in privacy, light control, energy efficiency, and security. They can also enhance the value of the home, equity value. SIMPLICITY!!!
ARE ALL SHUTTERS THE SAME - THEY LOOK THE SAME???
NO, they are not.
I have dealt with 6 different shutter companies before coming to Norman Shutters. Four of the 6, I would not even offer at half price. The other 2 companies are just overpriced compared to Norman. Norman's standards are well above the average shutter offered. The quality exceeds the price you will pay for them. For Duff’s, it just comes natural. Norman Shutters are by far, second to none, from start to finish. In September of 2015, I enjoyed a complimentary tour of the Norman production facility in Dongguan, China near Hong Kong. I saw first hand why these shutters are truly the best in the world. Norman Shutters are sold in Australia, all of Europe, the Middle East, and the USA - which comprises 54 % of sales.
Duff's is one of the few to use a Direct Mount install. SEE VIDEO BELOW. This installation is defined at consultation. This allows the client to utilize Tilt-in-Windows, without the use of a frame placed on the existing trim around the window. SERIOUSLY -- Why would a home owner, after choosing beautiful trim, accept something covering it up.
WOODLORE SHUTTER - COMPOSITE
This product surpasses all solid vinyl and PVC shutters. Constructed with a solid MDF core - for incredible density and strength. This MDF is one of a kind - made from all one tree type. No other woods are used in the making of the MDF. Then a covering of a patented polypropylene coating to make its surface extremely durable and robust. Then to add even more quality the added UV inhibitors to protect from fading. (this product choice is about 80% of my shutter sales.)
NORMANDY SHUTTER - WOOD
Normandy wood shutters are unique from all the rest. Norman has replaced the over harvested Bass wood and replaced it with the Paulownia Tree, also known as the Kiri Tree. One of the world's fastest growing hardwood tree species. Sawn timber can be harvested in less than 10 years and after harvesting, a new tree can grow from the original stump (coppice growth) making it one of those rare environmental solutions that also make economic sense.
The Paulownia Tree has a long tap root system that regulates the water table. It keeps soil salinity in check and absorbs waste water pollutants. Because its root system does not compete with the roots of most crops it is a favoured tree species used for intercropping.
Many paint colors to choose from and you can even provide a sample color for them to match. The Normandy painted Shutters have a total of 6 coats of paint. There isn't another shutter company that can match that. The Paint comes with its own 3 year warranty. The only Shutter Company to provide a warranty on their paint. Stains are also an awesome way to go, 25 to choose from or we can match your stain if necessary.
OPTIONS: TRADITIONAL TILT WAND, TRULY INVISIBLE TILT, DIVIDER RAIL, MOTORIZATION, DIFFERENT SHAPES FOR THOSE UNIQUE WINDOWS, TRACK SYSTEMS, DOUBLE HUNG PANELS, AND A NEW BI - FOLD 180.
