Uses of Exterior Shutters

You rarely get to see a house in the Philippines with exterior shutters. Since most of the houses here are built without any architecture in mind, buildings and houses are just slapped with railings or grills to protect windows but no one ever uses exterior shutters.

If you have been to other countries, specially in suburban areas, some houses have exterior shutters. Exterior shutters are window covers and they also protect your windows. I guess some people don't opt for shutters but rather for railings since shutters don't necessarily keep thieves away. Anyways, if you’re living in a well-secured subdivision and you’re thinking of renovating your homes, try putting exterior shutters on your windows, it would definitely improve your house’s exterior.
