What You Should Think About Before Investing in Custom Louvers

Custom Louvers

Before you go down the road of installing custom louvers, you’re going to want to think about these huge considerations first.

You’re thinking about installing louvers. Great! Before making a final decision and beginning the installation process, there are some factors you want to consider. You want to work closely with your installer and come to an understanding of what your needs are and how to fulfill those needs. Custom louvers come with a plethora of benefits but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some questions you want to ask before installing them. Here are the top considerations you ought to make before you move to investing in custom louvers.

Louvers vs. Fences

When it comes to security structures, there are a few options out there. Typical fences are one of the most common options out there and can generally get the job done. That said, custom louvers are much more appropriate for certain applications. You may prefer the aesthetics of louvers, the fact that they’re difficult to climb, or their open air flow which is perfect for installing louvers surrounding generators or air conditioning units. Whether you need louvers or fences, it really depends on what the application is and you need to work with a professional to find out why one option may suit you over the other.

Choosing a Material

Speaking of fences, most of them are usually made out of iron or wood or other typical fencing materials you’ve likely seen. On the other hand, louvers are almost always made from aluminum. Aluminum louvers are sturdy, weather-resistant, and ultimately going to stand the test of time. This means you’re going to be performing little maintenance compared to some fencing materials. Whatever option you end up going with, you want to understand what the maintenance requirements for that material are so you keep everything in pristine condition.

Finding the Right Area

Installing custom louvers or even fences does require a bit of research beforehand. An experienced installer will help you with this process, but it’s important to speak to neighboring businesses and do your homework on what the local laws and codes are. The last thing you want is to take the time to install custom louvers, only to have to take them down later.
