Construction of Composite Board & Batten Shutters

The construction of composite board and batten shutters begins with full solid sheets of Extira material. The boards are crafted from a single sheet with grooves cut to create the realistic appearance of separate boards. The groove placement is determined by the specified width of the shutter and predetermined number of boards across according to the displayed schedule. Separate horizontal battens are glued and stapled in position on top of the boards.

Board & Batten Composite Shutter Configurations

This exterior shutter style can be configured with two, three or four evenly spaced battens. A z-pattern shutter is constructed with top and bottom battens and a third diagonal batten in a z-pattern. A reverse z-pattern board and batten shutter is also available for the opposite window side.

Composite Shutter Longevity

Composite shutters provide years of dependable service. They can be expected to consistently endure harsh weather conditions and broad temperature fluctuations. The paint finish will need periodic inspection to affirm favorable condition. Exterior shutters may require repainting on the same schedule as the full house.

Installation of Composite Shutters

Composite shutters are mostly installed in a stationary position. L-shaped polycarbonate mounting brackets are included with every composite shutter order to affix shutters in place. The installation bracket is optional and not required to be used. Alternatively, composite shutters can be installed to be stationary with screws through the face.

Using functional exterior shutter hardware, composite board and batten shutters can be installed to swing open and closed. Composite shutters are about 1.5 times heavier than traditional wood shutters resulting in the need for additional hinge support. Extira shutters only have one presentable side, but can still close for storm protection.

Board & Batten Exterior Shutter Finish Options

Solid panel composite shutters are available unfinished, primed, or fully factory painted.

Unfinished shutters need to primed and painted prior to installation. Two or three coats of primer, with a light sanding with 220-grit sandpaper between coats, should result in a smooth, sealed surface, ready to accept paint.

Sprayed paint results in the smoothest finish, but can be applied with a brush or roller. We recommend two or more coats for maximum protection.

Factory painted shutters arrive ready to install. The shutters are sanded, primed, sanded and painted with two coats of professionally sprayed high quality exterior paint. The paint has a satin sheen.

ShutterLand has nine standard house paint colors that include black, gray, green, brown and red. For specialty colors outside of standard spectrum, we can match a custom paint for a one- time additional fee of $200 for the entire order. White or light-base colors may require an additional $35 per shutter. The increased amount is applied because light-based colors are more difficult to apply than darker colors, and will be presented for approval before an order is processed.

Composite shutters cannot be stained.

Board and batten shutters are stylistically fluent for a wide range of house designs. Traditionally, board and batten shutters have been installed to conform to a rustic farm home, or homestead, motif. In more recent years, board and batten shutters are more widely accepted on an array of structures, including contemporary houses.
