How to Prepare for a Louver Installation Project

How to Prepare for a Louver Installation Project

Whatever the reason, there is a bit of prep work for you to do before you install a new set of louvers.

Are you preparing for a brand new louver installation project on your property? Maybe you have some ideas that would suit your property nicely? Perhaps there is an old piece of equipment that you would wish to tear down. Whatever the reason, there is a bit of prep work for you to do before you install a new set of louvers. Your louvers will stay up for many years to come, ideally, so you want to make sure that the installation process will go smoothly. This will require some preparation. Read on to learn what you can do to begin getting ready for your new louver installation process!

Determine the Spots that Would Benefit from the Louvers  

Before any louver installation begins, you should determine if you need them in the first place. Take a bit of time to walk around your property to see if any spots could use them. Perhaps some spots could benefit from other types of additional privacy. In some instances, like with HVAC units, you could install louvers to protect them from the harsh outdoor elements. Whatever the circumstances might be, you want to ensure that it is worth getting louvers at all before you start the process of installing them.

Think About the Louver Installation Materials

A lot of people might be confused as to which type of material they should pick for their custom louver installation. However, there a lot of different materials you’re able to use. Steel louvers are classic choices for sure, but there are more durable and affordable options, like aluminum louvers, which demand less maintenance on your end. We at Hercules provide aluminum as the primary material for our louvers, and they’re an excellent choice for durability, aesthetics, and for the environment since they can be recycled. Whatever role your louvers are serving, make sure that you choose a material that helps your louvers satisfy that role.

Review Any Potential Local Laws or Regulations Before the Louver Installation

Before you start your louver installation process, ask yourself if the louvers you’re installing follow all of the local regulations or laws in your area. If you do not check up with the regulations and rules for what you can install, you might find yourself tearing down your louvers midway through the process.
