WHY LEVOLOR SHUTTERS?

LEVOLOR® Shutters will add classic style and functionality to your windows. With our step-by-step design instructions and ease of installation, these shutters are the perfect choice for the do-it-yourself homeowner. LEVOLOR® Shutters are a timeless yet durable choice for your home, and include a 25 year limited lifetime warranty.

EASY TO INSTALL

LEVOLOR® Shutters have a number of features that make installation a breeze even if you have never installed a shutter before! Our frames snap tightly together – with the locking corner key. LEVOLOR® Shutters’ unique 2-leaf hinge allows for panels to be installed (or removed for cleaning) easily by one person.

MAINTENANCE FREE

Our compound features a permanent finish that will never warp, shrink, chip, peel, crack or fade and never needs painting. Our smooth finish makes cleaning a snap with ordinary soap and water.

CHILD SAFE DESIGN

LEVOLOR® Shutters are Best for Kids™ Certified, making them a safe option for homes with small children and pets.

FIRE RETARDANT

Polyresin 3® is fire retardant and self-extinguishing. It is safe to use in residential and commercial applications and meets (NFPA701) National Fire Code Standards.

WATERPROOF DESIGN

LEVOLOR® Shutters will not warp or crack due to water exposure, and our tilt-bar is not attached with staples (unlike other brands) which can rust and break over time. They are ideal for use above kitchen sinks, bathrooms, or waterfront homes.
