I have had a problem with termites at my house, and apparently the problem went on for quite some time, without my knowledge. It has ruined the wooden facade of my house, and also my shutters. I already had the facade replaced with aluminum siding, to preclude this happening again, but I think I want to get wood shutters again, because I really liked the once that I had before.
However, in order to hedge against my potential losses, when it comes to the shutter replacement, I think it would be a good idea to get them installed by a company that offers some sort of life time guarantee on them. Or otherwise, a guarantee that lasts for a substantial period of time, either of those options would work well in my situation.
