Our solid wood exterior shutters are made from solid kiln dried, rot-resistant incense cedar or western red cedar which is a very durable wood that is resistant to decay and requires little maintenance. This fine grained wood has natural tannins to help preserve its character. Other woods used for making shutters such as pine or poplar, do not enjoy such an advantage. Kiln drying is time consuming and expensive, but it is important because it reduces the moisture content therefore allowing less expansion and contraction, enhances durability and acceptance of finishes.
Each shutter panel is hand assembled and individually built on site in our Southern California Facility. Hand sanding assures a smooth finish for each shutter once assembled, and will be delivered to you unfinished, sanded and ready for paint, stain or primed only. We Do NOT finish or install exterior shutters.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR SHUTTER SIZES:
Whatever style you choose, correctly sizing the shutter to your window is critical! We will build your shutters to your exact specifications, so make sure your measurements are accurate. Whether your shutters will be functional or not, size them as if they would be. Measure the window on the inside edge of the casement, as if the shutters would be closed. This measurement is the “pair width” (equal to twice the width of one shutter). If your shutters will be functional, deduct approximately 1/2″ for clearance. If your shutters will remain open at all times, rounding off to the closest inch is acceptable.
First measure the window width. Then divide the window measurement in half to determine the approximate width size of each shutter panel. Then measure the height which is the full height of the window opening.
Most exterior shutters are fixed in place and are non functional and screwed directly to the sides of the window opening. They will not close, but they will add depth and character to your home’s elevation. They can be fully operable and functional with the use of exterior hardware.
Note: For panels that will be fixed to the wall and non functional, an exact size is not necessary, however with functional panels, the panel size is critical and it may be easier to order the panels slightly larger and trim them on site for a perfect fit. Note: you can trim 1” from the bottom rail and 7/16” from each side stile. Should you need any guidance, we’ve provided some helpful ideas and information to get you started. Our Shutter Professionals are always available to discuss any questions you may have. The finest, handmade wooden shutters in the world are just a phone call away.

Exterior shutter installation:
The panels should not be attached flush with the exterior wall, since moisture can be trapped behind the panels. The shutters should be screwed or lagged to the exterior surface of the house with rust proof screws. Pre-drill and countersink all screw holes and attach a rubber washer between the back of the shutter and the building so as to allow the water and ventilation to pass between the shutter and the exterior surface of the house. Fill the screw holes with wood filler or calking and touch up paint as required. These simple instructions explain everything you need to know to install your shutters yourself and to enjoy your new shutters without the need to hire someone to help you install them. You are easily turned into an installation professional, but we’re still here to help if you need us. To protect your shutters, we will also send you a free exterior shutter cap to protect them from moisture. It is made of bonderized aluminum which can be painted. To attach the cap protector, just add a bead of calk to the top of the panel and squeeze the cap on (no screws or nails)
