Premium wood raised panel shutters integrate a solid elevated composite section contained by the vertical stiles and horizontal rails. This distinct style was historically utilized outside of northern Colonial homes that required a solid defense against harsh weather and potential intruders. However, the simplicity of wood raised panel shutters lends itself to use on almost every style of home in the United States. Wood raised panel exterior shutters are also among the easiest to maintain, with fewer crevices to attract debris and a more solid surface to easily sand and paint.

Exterior Shutter Hardware

Wood exterior shutters can be installed with functional hardware to swing open and closed. ShutterLand does provide some guidance to help determine the best shutter hinges or shutter dogs. ShutterLand does not sell hardware, but does have a trusted source with great selection, helpful customer service and reasonable pricing. Alternatively, stainless steel screws may be used to secure the shutters directly to the building in a fixed position.

Construction of Wood Shutters with Composite Raised Panels

ShutterLand offers raised panel shutters in three premium woods – Red Grandis, Cedar and Mahogany. Lumber is harvested from sustainably managed forests and carefully selected for straight lengths with minimal blemishes. All wood is thoroughly kiln dried before construction begins. The shutters are assembled from all solid components, which are never finger-jointed. The intersection between the stiles and rails are secured with 2 ½” wood dowels, exterior glue and 3 ½” threaded screws for superior durability.

The inside panel portion of this shutter style is crafted from a composite material manufactured to be especially durable in outdoor applications with high moisture content. We use composite for the inside panels because it can be manufactured as one solid piece to maintain form over time. Composite raised panels cut on a diagonal exposes the embedded wood fibers that can cause the surface to become slightly rougher than the face. This standard characteristic is universal and unavoidable. Sanding causes wood fibers to dislodge, resulting in more craters. Filling with wood putty results in an inconsistent patchy complexion, which is also not desirable. The texture difference may be noticeable when handling the shutters but generally imperceptible after they are installed.

Wood Raised Panel Shutter Colors

Solid panel shutters can be ordered unfinished, primed, or factory painted. Raised panel shutters cannot be stained because the composite paneled sections are unable to absorb stain. Solid raised panel shutters are much easier to sand and paint than louvered shutters.

We recommend priming with a solvent-based primer (not water based) because it bonds better with the composite material in the raised panel portion of the shutter. After priming, sand once more with 220-grit sandpaper, then remove all dust with a tack cloth. Once the surface is clean, two coats of a water- or oil-based quality exterior paint will ensure the shutters are ready for exterior use.

ShutterLand also offers factory priming and painting so your shutters are ready to install upon receipt. We use Insl-x Corotech oil based primer in a medium gray color for thorough coverage, ready to accept any paint color.

If painted shutters are specified, we then spray two coats of PPG Break-Through paint for thorough coverage in any color desired. Our nine standard paint colors are Black, Black Forest Green, Chrome Green, Tudor Brown, Charcoal Slate, Cottage Red, Country Redwood and Hamilton Blue. If you have a specific paint color you wish to match, we can custom mix paint based on the manufacturer and paint color specified for an additional $200. 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.

Options for Wood Raised Panel Shutters

While many of the dimensions of wood raised panel shutters are standard, homeowners can customize the width and height of the shutter to the closest ¼ inch. A divider rail is optional for shutters under 70” and can be specified anywhere on the shutter by providing the location from the bottom of the shutter to the center of the divider. A second divider rail can also be incorporated for a small fee.

Unique cut outs can be used with raised panel exterior shutters to really personalize the home. Any shape can be provided to create a cut out, which is typically located in the top portion of a raised panel shutter. Some of the most popular categories include:

Trees – palm tree for tropical locations or evergreen for wooded cabins
Ocean– seahorse; turtle; starfish; sailboat; anchor
Plant – tulip; clover; pineapple acorn
Ornamental – fleur-de-lis; candlestick; heart; Swiss cross; crescent moon; diamond; windmill; star; horseshoe
Animal – squirrel; dog; horse; dove; butterfly

Raised panel shutters are flat on the back, but they are still often installed as functional units since the back side is infrequently visible. It is necessary to obtain appropriate hardware if shutters are to be operable; this includes hinges, shutter dogs and tie backs. The supplier can assist with selecting the correct shutter hardware for each unique installation.

We want you to make an informed decision before ordering your quality exterior shutters. If you need any assistance determining the custom sizes, finishes and options for your wood raised panel shutters, ShutterLand is happy to help. After ordering, custom raised panel wood shutters are typically manufactured in 5-8 weeks, then shipped directly to your home. We are confident you will be satisfied with the beauty and longevity of ShutterLand raised panel shutters.
