O'Hair's commitment to responsible forestry and quality control is a big reason for the consistency of product.

These days it's all about "green." Universal Window Coverings in Dallas, Texas announces their line of environmentally friendly O'Hair Shutters.
O'Hair Shutters of Lubbock, Texas uses wood that is harvested from family-owned land. Because they have a vested interest in long-term success, they practice sustainable forestry and excellent conservation practices. This insures a reliable and carefully grown source of wood for both now and the future.
Says Mike Coronato, President of Universal Window Coverings says, "O'Hair's commitment to responsible forestry and quality control is a big reason for the consistency of product. There are cheaper shutters out there. Yet O'Hair understands that the drying process is absolutely crucial to the quality and life of a shutter. When you buy shutters from outside the United States, you have no idea how or if the wood was dried properly. Shutters made from wood that is too green or was dried too quickly means it's just a matter of time before your shutter warps."
O'Hair's hardwood shutters begin with the supervised drying of the green timber. O'Hair dries their wood on-site, combining open air and low temperature kiln drying. This carefully controlled process take from two to three months yet insures the wood will be stable.
"We've been in business for over 22 years, we know what works and what doesn’t, that’s why we only use O’Hair Shutters for our plantation shutters and Venetians. We believe in O'Hair because we know that you are getting the greatest value and the highest quality product for your money. Talk is cheap. Yet we know from years of experience that problems typical to other shutter products you won't have with O'Hair. We want the best for our customers. And should there ever be a problem, everything we sell has a lifetime warranty."
An O'Hair dealer in Massachusetts agrees. "No shutter has straighter louvers and stiles. This cannot be argued.... With tens of thousands of shutters passing through my hands, I stake my reputation on it. 100% American grown lumber and American labor...painted in USA, ensuring there is never any lead (Chinese products in general are always in a recall). When the product is installed you can say you have installed the best shutter on the market and provided American jobs."
Customers of Universal Windows are also discovering that these "green" O'Hair shutters help put "green" back in their pocket. Estimates are that up to 30% of home heating and cooling energy escapes through windows and doors. While we wouldn't think of leaving a window open during extreme heat or cold, all the small cracks and crevices around window sills and door jams can add up to just that. After weather proofing one's home, O'Hair Shutters add another layer of protection against escaping energy dollars. During high heat seasons, O'Hair Shutters keep the sunshine out and the cool air in. This means your air conditioner won't have to work as hard to maintain a steady temperature in your home.
