Southern Yellow Pine Species: Pinus Palustris
Southern Yellow Pine Shutters Native to the Southeastern United States, Southern Yellow Pine is a soft and lightweight building material. Because pine is relatively inexpensive and easy to work with, it is now the most popular wood for exterior shutter manufacturing. Most pine wood shutters are purely for decorative purposes, but combined with our dowel and screw joinery construction these pine shutters are suitable for mounting on functional shutter hinges.
Western Red Cedar Species: Thuja Plicata
Western Red Cedar Shutters Western Red Cedar comes from the Pacific Northwest and like other species of cedar, it contains high resins which make it resistant to termites and other wood boring insects. With cedar's medium hardness, it is an excellent wood to work with. Western Red Cedar is also resistant to moisture, which makes it an ideal building material for wood exterior shutters.
