Combination Exterior Shutters
Combination exterior house shutters incorporate multiple style components into a single panel. Depending on the material selected, choose from louvers, raised panels, flat panels, or groove panels.
Wood Combo Exterior House Shutters
High quality natural wood exterior shutters for windows have been used for centuries to make American homes more comfortable, safe, and attractive. We use three kiln-dried lumbers to forge stiles, rails, and louvers that compose our line of wood combo shutters. The raised panel portion is formed out of Extira, a dense exterior grade MDF. Each panel is assembled with time-tested techniques for maximum strength and longevity.
- Red Grandis is a distinct timber species that is popular for construction of many outdoor structures, including custom exterior shutters. It is lightweight, strong, and naturally resists insects and decay. This timber is naturally durable with minimal knotting, resulting in a consistently smooth texture. The fibers are relatively uniform in color with variations from light pink to dark red, and accept paint or stain well. Red Grandis is dimensionally stable and strong, yet lightweight in comparison to similar woods. The price of Red Grandis shutters is at the most affordable level and the best overall value.
- California Redwood is a distinct species that is popular for construction of many outdoor structures, including decks and fences. It is lightweight, strong, and naturally resists insects and decay. We use Select Grade B (97% clear) Redwood, which may contain minor blemishes. It is a step down from top grade lumber, yet perfectly acceptable for construction of custom exterior shutters for windows. The price of Redwood shutters is at the most affordable level and the best overall value.
- Cedar is the most common material for building exterior shutters in the industry. Cedar has many of the same qualities as Redwood, yet is less dense, making it easier to sand and finish. We use Select Grade B (99.5% clear) and better Cedar to begin the manufacturing process. Cedar house shutters sell at a slightly higher price point than Redwood.
- African Mahogany is revered for its beautiful reddish-brown color and straight, even grain. This hardwood possesses superior rot resistance and is frequently used in boat building. Mahogany is often selected for the brilliant tones and patterns preserved by staining. 99.9% Select and Better grades are used in construction of our Mahogany shutters. The panels are heavier than those made from other woods.
Composite House Shutters
Synthetic materials have only recently become an acceptable substitute for natural wood. Our composite exterior shutters are constructed from a high quality durable material that is impervious to moisture, rot, and termites. Composite louvered house shutters outperform wood in many categories.
- Extira is an engineered product formed with sustainable wood fiber (sawdust) and marine grade resins. The raw materials are pressed into dense rigid panels. Shutter components are cut from larger sheets and shaped to specification. Louvered composite shutters can be hinged but have only one presentable side. Banks of louvers are cut from a single piece with no space between slats. Composite panels are priced lower than premium wood shutters.
Vinyl House Shutters
Vinyl shutters are impact resistant and unaffected by moisture. They have a hollow back, so they are easy to lift and install. Decorative vinyl shutters are sold in limited widths and a full range of heights. There are many stock colors from which to choose to match or complement most exteriors.
