Wood louvered shutters are the most versatile and widely installed outdoor window accessory in America. ShutterLand exterior wood louvered shutters are meticulously crafted with hand-selected kiln dried lumber to ensure a long life of reliable service despite extreme climate conditions. Stiles and rails are secured with 3 inch dowels, industrial-grade polyurethane exterior glue, and corrosion-resistant coated screws for exceptional durability. Side stiles are machine drilled with slots at regular intervals to accommodate 1 ½ inch louvers equally spaced in a fixed position. Space between the louvers promotes ventilation when the louvered wood shutters are closed.
Our primary task is to assist you to make a fully informed exterior shutter purchase. Listed below are all of the specifications you may need to determine if ShutterLand wood louvered shutters are right for your application.

ShutterLand premium louvered wood shutters are constructed from three species; California Redwood, Western Red Cedar, and African Mahogany. Each wood has slightly different characteristics, yet all three result in the construction of high-quality durable exterior wood shutters. Genuine solid wood results in the most historically accurate exterior shutter available. No other material can match the character and detail of authentic louvered wood shutters.
Panels are an impressive 1 ½ inch thick, providing uncompromised stability. Sizes are sold in quarter inch increments for both width and height for the best possible fit. Wood louvered shutters can be installed with functional outdoor hardware or secured directly to the building. Operable shutters pivot from the side of the window to cover the opening. Closed exterior shutters reduce outside light and create privacy. Space between louvers supports air transfer between indoor and outdoor areas. If installed in a stationary position, decorative louvered shutters will only serve an aesthetic purpose.
Premium wood window shutters can be ordered unfinished, primed only, or fully painted. Unfinished shutters are raw and will require sanding, priming, and a final top coat paint. Factory primed shutters are shipped ready to accept paint after a light sanding. Factory painted shutters are ready to install immediately after receipt.
Nine standard paint colors can be applied in the manufacturing process prior to shipping. These colors are similar to the most popular offerings from Benjamin Moore. Black shutters are the most frequently ordered, with Black Forest Green close behind. We also stock gray, brown, blue, red, and green. If one of our basic hues does not meet your requirements, we can mix a custom color of your choosing. You just need to provide the manufacturer name, color name, and color code. There is a one-time fee per order of $100 for this service.
We can provide special features to conform to the contours or requirements of your windows. Arch top shutters simulate the lines of an arch top window. A horizontal divider rail separates the louvers into two sections. A second divider can be added to create three louver areas.
When wood shutters are installed to be functional, the fixed louvers should orient down and away from the building when closed to direct water away from the window. Conversely, the louvers are positioned up when rotated to the side of the window. The shutters can be flipped if it is desired to install opposite of standard in a stationary location.
Choose a faux vertical tilt bar to increase the appearance of movable rotating louvers. The tilt bar is a narrow vertical wood apparatus that interconnects the louvers. It is secured with small nails and wood glue. By default, the tilt bar is attached to the shutter side with downward facing louvers. You will need to specify if it is necessary to modify the tilt bar to be fastened to the side with louvers pointing up.
Unique New England style shutters can be fabricated with shutter horns or tails.
Louvered wood shutters currently require about 5-7 weeks to manufacture. After the window shutters are complete, they will be shipped straight to your front door.
If you determine that louvered wood shutters are not exactly what you need, we do have alternative styles and materials. If price is the primary factor, we suggest our economy line of louvered shutters built from Southern Yellow Pine. For low maintenance and dependability, consider our louvered composite shutter. If you need a wider louvered shutter, perhaps Bermuda shutters could be what you seek. Some homeowners like just a little more variety and find their solution with combination wood shutters.
