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.
Classic style raised panel shutters from the StyleCraft™ Southern Collection are an elegant addition to your home. This style of raised panel shutter is very popular - in fact, it is only outsold by the traditional style raised panel shutter. The single panel design is most appropriate for smaller windows, but works well throughout the range of available sizes.
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. 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.
You can choose both the material and whether you would like the panels raised on one side of the shutter or both. Double-sided
raised panels are recommended for operable shutter installations.
The recommended material for raised panels is Extira® composite because
of its resistance to moisture. Extira® ensures the panels will not crack
which can be a maintenance headache for natural wood.
If you are staining your shutters or if you still insist on getting real wood for your raised panels, we recommend using the same wood
that you use for the shutter material.
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.
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 raised panels are cut to size, routed to shape, and inserted into the wood shutter frame before final assembly. The end result is a durable raised panel wood shutter that can be mounted either decoratively or operationally, even when ordering a soft wood like pine. The outdoor wood shutters are manually inspected before being packaged 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 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|| |
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|| |
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 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.
