The New England Collection from StyleCraft™ is unique in that it is a top quality shutter at an affordable price. This wooden shutter collection is focused on keeping costs down by limiting the range of options available and maximizing the volume of exterior wood shutters that can be built. This line of exterior shutter is of higher quality than most on the market, but with a price that is very competitive.
The louvered wood sample shutter from StyleCraft™ is designed to make buying your wood shutters easy. This wood shutter sample is a miniature version of the actual shutters you will receive. The sample demonstrates the craftsmanship of both the beaded and flush shutter styles, beaded on the front side and flush on the back.
As for the accuracy of the sample, it is built using the same construction process, same wood, on the same equipment, and by the same skilled woodworkers as our exterior wood shutters. This ensures the sample you are looking at is a true representation of the cedar shutters you will install.
You have your choice of louver size to create a custom look for your wood shutters instead of just settling for what is available.
Choose 1 1/4" louvers for the most common size, 1 3/4" louvers for a stronger, more contemporary look, or the 2 1/4" louvers for
a definite plantation shutter feel. The 1 1/4" louvers are made 1/4" thick and the 1 3/4" and 2 1/4" louvers are a full 3/8" thick,
ensuring high strength and maximum warp resistance.
We start by making the smallest impact we can on the environment - the wood for these exterior shutters is harvested from sustainably managed forests in the heart of California where two young trees are planted for every one that is removed.
The wood is milled and cut to size and then kiln dried for maximum dimensional stability. This ensures the cedar shutters you receive will not be prone to warping after they are installed on your house.
After you place your order, our experts hand select the wood from inventory. The wood shutter frame is built according to your size specifications. Each joint is fastened together using 2 dowels and then glued with exterior polyurethane glue. A 3 1/2" hot dipped screw is then inserted and countersunk into the shutter assembly. The hole where the screw was inserted is then plugged and sanded smooth.
The louvers are cut to size and inserted into the wood shutter frame before final assembly. The end result is a durable shutter that can be mounted either decoratively or operably and will stand the test of time better than most wood shutters on the market. The cedar shutters are given a final sanding by hand and inspected carefully for flaws before being packaged and shipped.

|California Cedar|| |
California cedar is one of the best materials to build exterior shutters with. With cedar's natural resins it naturally repels termites and other wood boring insects. Also, because cedar absorbs very little moisture, it resists rotting. California cedar is one of the finest materials to build exterior wood shutters from as it holds paint and stain well and has lower maintenance than any other species of wood.
