Outside Wood Solid Panel Shutters

  • Premium western red cedar exterior shutters with flat panels.

Outside premium wood solid panel shutters provide a dynamic element to new and old homes alike. Each shutter consists of 1.5 inch thick vertical stiles and horizontal rails with a central recessed flat or grooved panel. The popular groove and flat panel styles draw inspiration from Mid-Century Modern architecture using clean square lines and uncomplicated design. Shaker style panels are constructed with shallow grooves to resemble vertical boards. Flat panels eliminate the lines for a more simple approach, similar to Mission style furniture or doors. Solid panel shutters are offered in three woods; California Redwood, Western Red Cedar and African Mahogany, and the width and height can be specified to the quarter inch for a perfect fit.

Construction of Wood Solid Panel Shutters

The basic structure of outside solid panel shutters is what makes them globally appealing. Each shutter is constructed with horizontal rails and vertical stiles. Floating in the middle resides a flat or grooved solid panel constructed from Extira, a stable and reliable composite material. The stiles and rails are milled from California Redwood, Western Red Cedar or African Mahogany. Each of these kiln-dried premium woods have weather resistant properties that result in durable, yet attractive, custom exterior shutters.

Wood Solid Panel Shutter Options

Every solid panel shutter is manufactured to the 0.25 inch in both width and height to obtain the best possible size for the window. The shutter can be modified by selecting a divider rail, which separates the paneled area into top and bottom sections. Specify the location of the divider rail with the measurement from the bottom of the shutter to the desired center of the divider.  Multiple dividers can be added at no additional cost.

The shaker shutter style is enhanced with vertical grooves to simulate boards. The composition of this solid grooved panel shutter is desired on contemporary and classic home styles. Arts and Crafts flat panel shutters are similar in design, only with an even simpler complexion.

Solid panel shutters can be made for arch top windows. Curved top shutters mimic the contour of rectangular windows with round tops. It is necessary to note the springline measurement from the top of the shutter to the start of the arch.

Wood Solid Panel Shutter Paint Colors

Solid panel shutters can be ordered factory painted to match the existing color composition. Solid panel shutters cannot be stained because the composite paneled sections are unable to absorb stain. Unfinished or primed only shutters are sold for DIY homeowners or those with on-site painters. Solid 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 outdoor paint will ensure the exterior wood shutters are ready for outdoor 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.

Installation of Wood Shutters

Install wood exterior shutters with hinges to be functional or directly to the building in a fixed position. With operable hardware, solid panel shutters can swing over the window for light control or privacy. They are held open with shutter dogs that lock the shutters in place. Alternatively, wood shutters can be mounted permanently with screws or bolts.
