What to Ponder Before Investing in Custom Louvers

What to Ponder Before Investing in Custom Louvers

Custom louvers come with multiple benefits, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t few questions you should ask before installing them.

If you’re thinking about installing custom louvers, then you have come to the right spot! Before making a final choice and starting the installation process, you should consider a few things. You want to work as closely with your installer and come to a real understanding of what your needs and wants are, as well as how to fulfill those needs. Custom louvers come with multiple benefits, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t few questions you should ask before installing them. Here are the most essential considerations to make before you fully invest in custom louvers!

Fences vs. Custom Louvers

When it comes down to security structures, there are a couple of options out there. Your usual fences are one of the most common options available and can usually get the job done. That being said, custom louvers are a lot more appropriate for specific applications. You might prefer the aesthetics of louvers, the fact that they’re next to impossible to climb, or their open airflow, which is excellent for installing louvers around generators and air conditioning units. Whether you need fences or louvers, it really depends on what application, and you must work with a professional to learn why which option might suit you over the other one. Hercules Custom Louvers can give you a hand in this regard!

Picking the Material

Speaking of fences, many of them are typically made out of wood or iron or other typical materials for fences that you’ve probably seen. On the other hand, louvers are usually always made from aluminum. Aluminum louvers are weather-resistant, sturdy, and ultimately going to stand the test of time. This means that you will be performing a bit of maintenance compared to some fencing materials. Whichever option you end up rolling with, you want to understand the maintenance requirement for that material, so you keep everything in great condition.

Finding the Proper Area

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