Frequently Asked Questions
What materials are available?
Wood • Polycore • Vinyl • MDF • Hybrid Composites
Shutters are available in many materials of varying abilities and performance levels. While some materials are designed to perform best in wider windows and doors, other materials may be a better choice in damp environments. Our consultant can help determine the best material for your needs.
What do I need to know about different construction grades and quality?
Once you choose a material, the next choice involves selecting the correct construction grade for your window’s environment. Not all wood or synthetic lines are equal in quality, and variation can be found in just about every part of the shutter panel, including joints, tension systems material quality, and finish.
What factors determine the best shutters for my windows?
Differences in material type and construction quality are both key to suitability and durability. Choices are usually guided by such factors as window sun exposure, size, and moisture. Selecting the correct type will be the most important factor in choosing which line is right for you.
