We Partner with Only the Best Manufacturers of Plantation ShuttersWe only partner with a handful of quality product manufacturers that create shutters you can be proud of for years to come. Our solid wood shutters begin with grade A or finer Basswood. Timber from the Basswood tree has many qualities that make it ideal for plantation shutters. Basswood has a uniform texture and is one of the straightest of the hardwoods. It has a fine grain that takes well to natural and stained finishes. Basswood timber is also light weight yet extremely strong allowing for a wider panel. Wider panels bring in more light and give you a better view.
Custom Indoor Plantation Shutters Built to Beautify and LastIn addition to their aesthetic beauty, our plantation shutters are built tough and will function perfectly for years. Many companies use magnets to secure their shutters, but we take it a step further by recessing the magnets inside the wood giving your shutters a tighter fit and more streamlined look. We also use mortised hinges that are inset into the shutter. This feature is important because it gives a tighter fit in the window opening which means there will be no gaps letting in unwanted light through the panels. The use of mortised hinges also allows the load distribution to be more even resulting in a smoother, quieter action.
With the addition of tension adjustment screws, your shutters will always function properly. They will never get too tight or too loose because the screws inside the stile increase and decrease the louver tension ensuring proper shutter function at all times.
Our plantation shutters are built to function flawlessly last in your home for years. We use the mortise and tenon joint which woodworkers have used for thousands of years. This type of joint is made of a tenon tongue that is precisely cut to fit the mortise hole, then it may be glued, pinned or wedged to lock in place. The mortise and tenon joint is a durable and reliable because it bonds more of the wood together.
Your Shutters Will Have a Beautiful, Sturdy FinishFor added beauty and dimension we use multi-sequence hand sanding. Once the wood is sanded multiple times, it is coated with high quality stain or paint. Our acrylic lacquer finish gives your plantation shutters strength and resistance to water and fading from UV light. This process will help your shutters retain their color for years.
