About Us

House Shutters
ShutterContractor.com was founded in 2002 by Shad Storhaug as a retail distributor of vinyl house shutters and accessories. The initial sales of outdoor house shutters we received through our web site far exceeded our expectations.

Our response was to add additional helpful information about house shutters to our web site. During the next five years, we continued to improve our customer service, shipping times, and product offering. Building on its early foundations, ShutterContractor.com became a household name in the exterior shutter industry.

We saw some initial success during those first five years while specializing in vinyl exterior house shutters. However, due to demand we saw that selling only vinyl house shutters was not enough for our customers.

In September 2007, ShutterContractor.com merged with ESSCO Exterior Products, the largest wholesale distributor of exterior house shutters in the western United States. ESSCO was formed by Brian and Karen Throsteinson in 1992 as a manufacturer of exterior house shutters. ESSCO supplied vinyl siding, vinyl windows, and vinyl exterior shutters to professional building supply centers, siding and window contractors. During the 1990s, ESSCO added to its product offering by acquiring the exterior house shutters division of 17 competing companies.

Shortly after the merger, we added the Mastic vinyl exterior shutters line and several exclusively designed Mid-America house shutters to our inventory.

In February 2009, we began offering Shutter ReNu and Vinyl ReNu - products specifically designed for customers to get the most of their existing house shutters by restoring them rather than replacing the shutters on their houses.

In July 2009, we added 2 collections of StyleCraft™ wood house shutters to our online shopping cart which brings our online house shutter offering more inline with what we sell offline.

Our committment to you is that we will continue to expand our selection of house shutters and accessories, and continue to improve our customer service and delivery times. At ShutterContractor.com, we strive to be a cut above the competition and our long list of repeat customers tells us that we are moving in the right direction. Our experience means that our friendly staff can answer the tough questions about house shutters. If you don't see what you are looking for on our web site, feel free to give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.
