We are currently building a house and now the question of the color of exterior blinds and roller shutters has come up. We really like the anthracite colored roller shutters and blinds. However, we often read about a huge amount of heat building up between the window and the anthracite-colored roller shutters. Some even say that the windows can break and the roller shutters can warp.
Do you have any experience with this? What other drawbacks are there?
Crackling from time to time during the day and in the evening/night when they cool down.
Of course they get much hotter in the summer. You can compare light and dark cars by touching them in the summer. Same principle.
We even have anthracite floor tiles, and part of the wall is finished in that color. As good as it looks and as much as we like it, it is extremely warmer than light-colored surfaces. When the sun shines on it in the summer, you burn your hands and feet.
It also cracks occasionally during the day and in the evening/night when they cool down. Neighbor's Venetian blinds also rattle.
