Broken Cords

The cords are used to help in the opening and closing of the manual shutters. If the cords become damaged, then the shutters require immediate attention.

Leaks and seepage

If you notice water seeping inside your shutters, then there is a leakage in it. This means that the seals on the doors and windows have stopped functioning properly. While water seepage might not cause much damage but the influx of insects and the chances of fire entering the building become high. If you spot any leakage, then it is best to get shutter repaired as soon as possible.

A misaligned shutter will not close properly. This development will mean compromising on your security, privacy and many advantages which they offer in the perfect running condition.

The tracks of the shutters should also be stable. If your shutters shake during operation, it could mean that the tracks of the shutters are dislodged from their position.
