The Southern Collection from StyleCraft™ is one of the few to offer customization for operational shutter use at an affordable price. The StyleCraft™ Southern Collection consists of economical custom wooden shutters and excellent workmanship for a long lasting, beautiful addition to your home.
The spaced board and batten shutter, much like its cousin the joined board and batten shutter, has its origins in rural Europe on cottages. Spaced board and batten shutters work somewhat better than joined board and batten shutters for solar control because they don't completely block out the light when closed. However, much like the joined board and batten shutter design, the spaced board and batten shutter is built very strong and works well for operational shutter installations.
Mounting hardware not included.
You have your choice of shutter finish to suit your preference for priming, painting, or staining.
Choose unprimed paint grade if you want control over the type of primer that is applied to your exterior wood shutters. Primed paint
grade is also available, and saves you a step in the painting process. The priming is applied at the factory before the shutters are
constructed to ensure complete protection between the boards.
The stain grade wood shutters come without a finish and they are completely knot free - perfect to display the wood grain in
a stained shutter application.
Being environmentally conscious, the wood for these shutters is carefully selected from sustainably managed forests. Wood is one of the few renewable resources on the planet and using it for building materials is an excellent way to reduce your impact on the environment.
After you place your order, our expert craftsmen hand select the wood from inventory. It is cut to size and then laid flat on an assembly table. The vertical boards are separated by 1/2" spacers, clamped together, and then polyurethane glue is applied to the back of the cross-battens. Each batten is attached with a minimum of 3 screws per board at the point where it intersects with the batten. The screws are inserted into the board and batten shutters from behind so they will not show on the front side (the side with the horizontal cross-battens).
After assembly the wood shutters are carefully inspected for flaws before they are packed and shipped.

|Southern Yellow Pine|| |
Pine is a soft and lightweight wood that is often used as a cheap alternative to more durable woods in exterior shutter construction. However, Southern Yellow Pine is more durable and combining this wood with screw reinforced full lap joints makes a pine wood shutter that is strong enough to be used with operational hardware. Southern Yellow Pine is our most economical option for putting either decorative or functional wood exterior shutters on your home.
|Western Red Cedar|| |
From the Pacific Northwest comes Western Red Cedar with its high resin, termite resistance, and low moisture absorbency. This combination gives you a very long lasting and beautiful line of exterior shutters. Adding full lap and metal joinery make Western Red Cedar ideal for fully operational shutters as well as for mounting as decorative exterior shutters.
|California Redwood|| |
The famous California Redwood is known to be one of the longest lasting wood materials on the market, in particular when used in exterior building applications. California Redwood exterior shutters are equally long lasting and will ensure years of decorative shutter or functional shutter use.
|Sapele Mahogany|| |
Sapele Mahogany has a generally straight grain, is free of knots, and was once a favorite building material for fine furniture and in boat construction. Being that mahogany is a true hardwood, it makes an excellent wood for outdoor shutters - especially when being stained. Sapele Mahogany naturally has a reddish-brown color which darkens over time and has excellent workability properties. Most importantly mahogany resists wood rot, which is why Sapele Mahogany exterior shutters last longer than virtually any other wood.
Frequently Asked Questions
- How can I make these exterior wooden shutters decorative (non-functional)?
We recommended that you do not mount wood shutters directly onto the surface of the house. You will need a slight gap between the house and the shutter to allow rain water to drain from behind the shutter. Use our direct mount kit for a proper decorative wood shutter installation.
- Can you paint or stain these wood shutters for me?
No. We recommend that wood shutters be finished after they have been pre-drilled for installation so they are completely protected from the elements. Because of this it is more advantageous to stain or paint wood shutters at the site where they are installed.
