The New Window Treatment For Entry Door Sidelights: Sidelight Shutters in Jacksonville We usually get this question when the consultation is done, as we’re walking out the door: “What can you do with these small, narrow windows on each side of my front door?” And our answer? “Let’s put in sidelight shutters!" Everyone is getting sick of the rod-pocket sheers over the sidelight window, covering up the light and the view. Letting in light is the reason people have sidelight windows. Besides that, those coverings can go through a lot of wear and tear, with pets, kids, and guests strolling in and out of your entry door on a regular basis. Even with hold-downs along the bottom, blinds eventually rattle and bang as the wind catches them when the door is opened and closed. The best alternative isn’t to hide your sidelight windows. It’s to complement them with beautiful interior sidelight shutters in Jacksonville. And the best part? Shutters stay nice and tight to the doorframe when opening and closing the panels. How Are Sidelight Shutters Installed? First, we measure the width and length of the windows. We record exactly where the door frame meets the glass. We can craft the shutter frames to go over just the glass – or the frame can cover the full section by using a rail at the top and bottom to mask the solid panel of the door door. More often than not, the panels will be able to rotate and open and lay back against the wall alongside the door. This provides you with a full unobstructed view if the panels are opened and full privacy when you close them. With our unique Polywood® shutters, we can build your shutters to enhance your entry doors. A larger rail along the bottom will mask the wall space that’s behind the shutter. Because of this, the shutter louvers can start up in the glass – instead of going over the space below. We can set up Polywood shutters on doors made of wood, steel, or fiberglass. Set your mind at ease, because we’ll walk you through deciding on the frame style, louver size, paint and stain colors, and other options. Then, when we go to our workshop, we’ll order your hand-fashioned plantation shutters with enough room for the louvers to move effortlessly – and a look that truly enhances your entry door.
