Plantation Shutters can go from looking great to not so good in a short space of time. All it takes is just one missing louvre staple or a broken louvre to turn your beautiful shutters into an eyesore. What is a shame is that most people will live with this unsightly shutter not knowing that fixing it takes just minutes and can be accomplished by the average homeowner.
Plantation shutters are meant to last a lifetime and like any other product that lasts this long, they may need maintaining every so often.
In our experience, you may only have two or three problems over the course of a lifetime and they are all very easy to put right;
- The louvre and tilt rod become disconnected. When this happens you simply need a replacement staple either in the louvre or the tilt rod.
- Broken louvre. If you've got a broken louvre, you'll need our specially designed louvre repair pin. The pin is spring loaded and allows you to pop the louvre back into the panel. If your louvre is broken beyond repair, you will need a replacement louvre. Contact us and we will arrange one for you.
- Floppy louvres - Your louvres don't stay in the position you set them in. The reason this is happening is because your panel has lost it's tension. Most manufacturers use tension screws or springs to add tension. If after tightening these the problem still isn't solved, you will need some tension washers to place between the end of the louvre and the stile.
All these parts are contained in our shutter repair and shutter tension kits along with full instructions.
