Our wood shutters are made from quarter sawn wood that produces louvers of remarkable strength, stability, and beauty. As a result, our wood shutters are less susceptible to cupping, bowing, and warping. Flatsawn wood is widely substituted in lower quality wood shutters because it is much more plentiful and inexpensive. A wood shutter is only as good as the wood used to build it!
We employ a patented wood drying technique to reduce shrinking and swelling in each shutter. Our wood conditioning specialist determines the humidity conditions of each customer’s home location. The wood for the shutter order is dried to conditions emulating those of the final installation location.
Proper wood joinery is critical to the prolonged quality of a wood shutter. Mortise and tenon joints are far superior to butt or dovetail joints and are designed to resist shear and racking forces
Our wood shutters are sanded and finely coated with high-quality stain or paint six times, assuring a silken and lustrous finish. The finish is also UV cured which prevents fading of the color over time.
Reinforced Engineered Stiles
We are the only manufacturer to use reinforced engineered wood, employing a procedure that bonds multiple layers of wood together with pressure, heat, and a proprietary chemical formulation. This imparts an intense level of stability to the cores of the stiles of our wood shutters and results in a robust support system for your wood shutter panels.
Louver Pins One Piece Or Two?
Most wood shutters are built with a single piece louver pin. When the louver is moved, it turns in the wood shutter panel. The benefit of a two-piece louver pin is that one piece turns inside the other. This prevents ‘lazy louvers’ over time assuring years of trouble-free operation with our wood shutters.
You get what you pay for. When shopping for real wood shutters or poly shutters, we encourage you to ask tough questions and demand a wood shutter that is built to last. We employ a patented wood drying technique to reduce shrinking and swelling in each shutter. Our wood conditioning specialist determines the humidity conditions.
