Rollshutters not only add beauty to your home, but they:

Protect your Windows from Storms

The weather has been getting crazy in Ontario.  The summer of 2013 saw some heavy storms that brought a lot of trees down and broke a lot of windows.  In December 2013, Ontario was hit again with a massive ice storm that damaged a lot of houses and cottages.  With roll shutters, you can sleep more securely during the night knowing your house is protected from flying debris or branches that may come crashing through your window.  If you are a snow bird, you no longer have to worry about a second floor window breaking, and the elements blowing in during the months you are away from home.  Even if you are insured, you don’t want rain damaging your photos and family keepsakes that are priceless.

Prevent Burglary

Talius roll shutters are specially engineered to prevent break-ins and forced entry when you are away on vacation, or at work.  They are also perfect for cottages, where it’s easy for anyone to break in and cause a lot of damage or vandalism during the off season.

The elderly who live in large homes, are subject to break-ins at night as they often suffer from hearing loss and can easily sleep through a break and entry.  Many seniors don’t have the energy to look after a young dog who could deter thieves, nor is it easy for them to figure out how to work out an alarm system (particularity with bad eye sight).  With roll shutters, you have a simple solution to enjoy your golden years in the home you love.

If you own a retail or service business, roll shutters are a fantastic way of protecting your investment.  Even if you have an alarm, it doesn’t take much for a desperate thief to break through a window and steal thousands of dollars of computer equipment.  Because nobody can see what’s behind your windows, roll shutters eliminate a lot of the temptation for someone to smash your window to grab an ipad or a laptop.

Below is an informative video on how you can benefit more from a security point of view from a roll down shutter.

Perfect Home Theater

Roll shutters provide complete darkness when closed, meaning you can watch your television with no glare from the sun.  With the windows closed and the roll shutters down, you can crank up your stereo a few notches while you’re watching that blockbuster movie without worry of your neighbours calling the police on you.

Improve your Quality of Sleep

Roll shutters not only keep noise from escaping your home, they prevent outside noise from getting in.  This makes them ideal for shift workers (who appreciate darkness and silence while they sleep at high noon)  If you suffer from migraine headaches, Rollshutters can block out those brain piercing noises you are sensitive to like lawn mowers, barking dogs, or that kid bouncing his basketball down the road.  Even if you don’t suffer from migraines, not waking up to your neighbor mowing their lawn at 7am on Sunday morning sounds like a great way to enjoy a lazy Sunday.

Save Your Energy Bill

Rollshutters insulate the house, so in the summer as the sun stays out, and the air conditioning doesn’t leak out.  Keeping the sun out of your home also protects your hardwood, walls and furniture from UV rays, so they don’t fade as quick.  In the winter, roll shutters keep the heat in, so you can sleep better at night, as the heat register isn’t constantly turning on and off waking you up. When closed at night, you can reduce heat loss in the winter by 20% which is a huge saving considering the high cost of hydro and heating.
