The Go-To Guide for Taking Care of Your New Louvers

Maintaining and taking care of your new louvers is quite easy.

Maintaining and taking care of your newly installed louvers is quite easy. All louvers need is a tiny bit of cleaning and some occasional attention, and they should last you a very long time. However, it is a brilliant idea for you to take a look at your custom louvers around once a year to get a better feel for what they may need. Since they’re made from aluminum here at Hercules Custom Louvers, they should deal with the elements and time very well. Regardless, it is always wise to know what you should be keeping an eye out for and how to correctly take care of the louvers if anything terrible happens. Read on for a handful of louver care tips so you can make sure everything is good with your new louvers!

Make Sure They’re All Clean

Aluminum louvers are protected incredibly against things such as rust and UV rays, which might ultimately end up hurting the aluminum and cause a few problems. While rust may not be a huge concern, one may worry that it could threaten the finish of your algae, aluminum, which could and ultimately will grow extensively on your aluminum louvers under the correct set of conditions. This will cause it to slowly eat away at the finish of your louvers, but getting rid of algae is easier than you’d think. All you’ve got to do is wipe down the louvers with some soap and warm water. If you add a bit of bleach to the solution, then you ensure that the algae won’t thrive on your precious new louvers.

Know When to Replace Them

Remember that nothing lasts forever. While aluminum is a very durable materials that you should get plenty of years of use from, your louver installers may not be able to fix serious issues at a point down the road, and it may be better to replace the louvers entirely. Don’t worry, though, as aluminum is an environmentally friendly material and fully recyclable too. This means aluminum can definitely have a second life as well.

Clear Off Room

You want to make sure you’re not allowing landscaping elements like bushes or vines to take over the visibility of your louvers. Brush away any shrubs and vines wherever it is needed and trim down anything that might be getting in the way of the new louvers. As tough as they might be, something as serious as a tree root growing under the louvers might cause issues by warping the structure.
