Wood, Composite & Vinyl Exterior Shutters
Genuine solid wood shutters maintain worldwide popularity. They are durable, rich in character, and cost-effective. When paired with functional hardware, wood shutters are able to swing open and closed for privacy, light control, and storm protection. Our premium wood shutters are crafted from Western Red Cedar, California Redwood, or African Mahogany. Some may elect to use Southern Yellow Pine as a more economical solution. All outdoor wooden shutters are built with solid lengths of meticulously selected kiln-dried premium lumber. Boards are inspected for straightness and to remove any imperfections. The species offered are resistant to both insects and decay.
Ultra-tough composite shutters simulate the appearance of natural wood. This resilient material is superior in both durability and longevity, but can sacrifice the authentic qualities some desire in wood. Composite house shutters can be installed with hinges, but are more often mounted in a stationary position. Composite shutters project to provide decades of reliable service.
The addition of vinyl shutters instantly revives a mundane façade. Inexpensive decorative panels attach to the siding with minimal effort.

Six distinct outdoor shutter styles provide a broad array of options.
Louvered shutters are prominent throughout the country and are installed more frequently than any other. Plantation style fixed louvers, or slats, are angled to filter light, supply ventilation, and lend aesthetic appeal.
Raised panel shutters utilizes a flat midsection with beveled edges to convey a rigid facade.
Grooved panel shutters incorporates a flat component with shallow equally spaced vertical seams cut. This style may also be know as a shaker, country, cottage, or craftsman shutter.
Combination shutters combine louvers with a raised panel for the best of both styles.
Board and batten shutters have a simple design and rugged appearance. This style is embraced by many to incorporate a rustic farmhouse or traditional element.
Bahama shutters reflect the vibe of coastal communities. Each panel pivots from the top of the window and prop outward from the bottom.
