Colonial Vs. Bahama Shutters
Bahama shutters differ from colonial in a few ways. First of all, Bahama shutters attach to the top of your window, recreating an “island” look. Whereas colonial shutters attach to the sides of windows. Both are permanently bolted to your windows. Meaning you won’t need to find any extra storage space to put them away. Furthermore, both shutters only take a few minutes to deploy, and one person can quickly get the job done. So you won’t have to scramble before the storm trying to get ready.
Once you have installed shutters from your colonial shutter manufacturer in Bradenton, they require a little maintenance. So first, you need to make sure your shutters aren’t going months without being opened. Once a month, open and close them to make sure everything is functioning properly. Listen for any weird noises and check if all the pieces are in proper places. You don’t want to deploy your shutters for storm and realize something is broken or rusted. Stay prepared always.
When you actually want to wash your shutters though, make sure you don’t use any harsh soaps and abrasive brushes. The aluminum is rather delicate, and hard chemicals and brushes will destroy the integrity of the aluminum. So remember soft brushes and cleaners and use once a month, and that pretty much wraps it up.
