Shutter Finish

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. We recommend our factory priming if you choose to paint your shutters because the priming is applied before the shutters are assembled, which means they will be completely protected from the elements. 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.

Optional Faux Tilt Rod

Tilt rods were once a common way to ensure that operable louvers could be opened and closed in harmony. While these wooden louvers don't actually operate, adding a tilt rod to your exterior shutters is still a way to add a bit of historical authenticity and personal style to your windows.

Optional Top Caps

Galvanized shutter top caps paired with an all-weather caulking compound are the way to ensure you get the most out of your wooden shutter investment. Top caps for wood shutters ensure the most vulnerable part of the shutter - the end grain - is protected against moisture absorption, which can extend the lifespan of a wood shutter by as much as 150% more than wooden shutters that are installed without top caps. Installing your wooden shutters with top caps is highly recommended.

Construction

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. The wood shutter frame is built according to your exact 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 wooden shutter that can be mounted either decoratively or operationally, even when ordering a soft wood like pine. The exterior wood shutters are manually inspected before being packaged and shipped.

Available Materials
Southern Yellow Pine 
Southern Yellow Pine Shutters 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 dowel and screw reinforced butt 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 
Western Red Cedar Shutters 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 wood dowel and metal joinery make Western Red Cedar ideal for fully operational shutters as well as for mounting as decorative exterior shutters.
California Redwood 
Redwood Shutters 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 combining these shutters with a metal top cap will ensure years of decorative shutter or functional shutter use.
Sapele Mahogany 
Sapele Mahogany Shutters 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.

Did You Know...
In the Colonial through the Old West era of North America, board and batten shutters and solid panel shutters were modified with diamond cutouts to be used for gun ports during shootouts. Over time, the cutouts in the window shutters were made into moons, hearts, flowers, and other decorative patterns. Today many wooden exterior shutters can still be ordered with decorative cutouts.
