The simple composition of premium wood board and batten exterior shutters is what makes them globally appealing. Vertical boards are braced with horizontal battens to form well balanced and substantial exterior shutters. Board and batten shutters are not only visually attractive but can be hinged to swing over the opening for protection, privacy, or light filtration. Or they may be permanently fixed in position adjacent to the window with screws or bolts. Our premium wood board and batten shutters are constructed from solid weather-resistant kiln dried California Redwood, Western Red Cedar and African Mahogany in quarter inch width and height increments. Use ShutterLand wood board and batten shutters to replace existing panels or add new for a lasting home improvement.

Board and Batten Construction

ShutterLand board and batten shutters are constructed with the highest standards to ensure many years of dependable service. We start with straight lengths of hand-selected lumber. The wood is then planed, cut to length, cut to width, routed, sanded, primed, sanded, assembled with industrial strength exterior glue, corrosion resistant screws, and corrugated joint fasteners. If specified, the exterior shutters are then covered with two coats of high endurance, water-borne commercial-grade acrylic paint. Each step is carefully scrutinized to insure quality and consistency.

Farmhouse Shutters

Wood board and batten shutters are likely the first window covering ever invented. Sometimes called farmhouse shutters, the popular style is used worldwide for a variety of purposes. Board and batten outside shutters have a rugged quality that allows their use on contemporary and traditional historical houses alike. Board and batten shutters can be easily modified to best conform to the window which it will be installed. Vertical boards may be positioned with either no space between or with a gap between the members. An optional third or fourth batten may be selected, situated horizontally or diagonally in a z-pattern.

Wood Shutter Installation

Both rectangular and arch-top windows may benefit from the installation of board and batten shutters. Hinges allow the shutters to swing open to either side of the window and closed if needed. The back side of board and batten shutters have no detail and may not be suitable for some applications. A stationary mount with screws or bolts permanently adheres the exterior wood shutters to the wall neighboring the window.

Exterior Wood Shutters

Three premium woods will provide years of reliable service. California Redwood, Western Red Cedar and African Mahogany have all been installed and tested by thousands of homeowners nationwide. These woods are offered because they each possess unique traits to hold shape, resist moisture and remain stable. Cedar and Mahogany are made with 1 inch thick components while Redwood parts are 1-5/8 inch thick. The board width is determined by the total measurement of the entire shutter.

Factory applied paint is a protective barrier from outside elements. We provide nine color options to match or complement an existing palette. This array may still not suit the requirements of certain projects, so a custom paint color may be specified for a one time charge of $100. Wood shutters are fully primed and sanded prior to the application of two coats of exterior grade paint.

In some cases it may not be desired to have the shutters finished in the production process. For DIY homeowners who wish to finish themselves, unfinished or primed shutters can be purchased. The priming process takes place before components are assembled so all surfaces can be covered. It is strongly recommended that outside shutters that will eventually be painted are ordered with factory priming. We only suggest unfinished board and batten shutters for staining.

Premium wood board & batten shutters take about 3-4 weeks to manufacture. After construction is complete, the exterior shutters are shipped direct to your house.

Great selection of sizes and styles of exterior window shutters; easy to order online. Delivery was timely, the quality outstanding. It was a pleasure to be your customer.

We wanted to get the old falling-apart shutters replaced before the holidays, and it was mid September. When I found Shutterland online, I called them. The person who answered was very nice and said he had designs which weren't exactly the same as what I needed, but they were close. I only needed to match one other pair on the front of our house, and the price they quoted was almost the same price for two pairs as the amount I had been quoted from another company! So we bought two pairs, I painted them and had them up before Halloween. The house looks great. Thank You Shutterland!
