Solid Flat Panel Shutters

We offer exterior solid panel shutters in three different styles (raised, flat & grooved) constructed from four different materials.

Raised Panel Shutters

Raised panel shutters are constructed with an elevated flat central surface with beveled edges surrounded by top and bottom rails and side stiles. This colonial style has historically been used on the ground level floor to protect the window from outside elements, including wind, rail, airborne debris and intruders. Exterior raised panel shutters are also valuable for light control and privacy.

Flat Panel Shutters

Exterior flat panel shutters are made with a smooth focal area with no detail. This style is often used to give homes a modern edge.

Shaker Shutters

Outside shaker shutter are manufactured with the same components as the solid flat style, only with vertical grooves cut in the panel. The added detail gives the appearance of perpendicular boards in between the side stiles.

Premium Wood Raised Paneled Shutters

High-quality natural wood raised panel shutters have been used for centuries to make American homes more comfortable, safe, and attractive. We use three kiln-dried lumbers to forge stiles and rails that compose our line of premium exterior wood shutters. The wood stiles and rails of each shutter are assembled with time-tested techniques for maximum strength and longevity. The sold flat, grooved or raised panel sections are fabricated from resilient Extira composite.

  • 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 finishing lumber, yet perfectly acceptable for construction of exterior solid paneled shutters. The affordability of Redwood shutters results in the best overall value for wood raised panel shutters.
  • Western Red 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 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 raised panel shutters. Mahogany is heavier than other woods.

Economy Wood Solid Paneled Shutters

ShutterLand offers a introductory grade affordable raised panel shutters. These exterior panels are intended for use on buildings and homes that need a quick, inexpensive external restoration. Economy wood shutters generally have a shortened life because of the species and grade of wood. The raised or grooved panel is crafted from the Extira composite material.

  • Southern Yellow Pine is a versatile, dense species that is used in construction of many aspects of the home. We use 99.9% knot free Grade C or Better, and construct the panels with the same techniques applied to our premium wood shutters. Builder-grade Pine shutters are not yet available in the grooved panel style.

Composite Paneled Shutters

Synthetic materials are a very acceptable substitute for natural wood. Our composite raised panel shutters and grooved panel custom made shutters are constructed from a high quality durable material that is impervious to moisture, rot, and termites. Exterior composite shutters outperform wood in many categories.

  • Extira is an engineered product formed with sustainable fine wood fibers and marine grade resins. The raw materials are pressed into dense rigid panels. Shutter components are cut from larger sheets and shaped to specification. Composite shutters can be hinged but have only one presentable side. Extira panels are priced less than premium wood shutters.

Vinyl Raised Panel Shutters

Ornamental vinyl shutters are used extensively to affordably and quickly enhance homes throughout the United States. Vinyl raised panel shutters may lack the warmth of pure wood, but they do add character with a relatively small investment. Vinyl shutters generally arrive quickly and require minimal strength or handyman skills to mount.

Solid Panel Shutter Options

Solid panel shutters can be designed to best meet the requirements of the window. Square top shutters are proper for rectangular windows and arch top shutters can be ordered to match the contour of windows with a rounded top.

A divider rail creates a top and bottom paneled area. The location of the divider rail can be specified by supplying the measurement from the bottom of the shutter to the center of the divider. Multiple divider rails can be used for added character.

Vinyl shutter colors are standard and are molded through the material. Wood and composite shutters can be ordered unfinished, primed only, or fully painted. Select from a supply of standard paint colors, or specify a custom color for a one-time charge of $100. Solid panel shutters cannot be stained.

Cutout shapes are popular in some regions of the country. Cutouts are not a standard option on the order form, but we can accommodate a number of shapes and images (flower, heart, sailboat, anchor, star, etc.). Contact us after placing an order to designate a cutout shape for the solid panel shutter. Cutouts add $40 to the price of each shutter and only available on wood and composite shutters.
