Types of Exterior Shutters
Whether your style leans toward basic shutters mounted for appearance only or toward customized functional shutters complete with hardware and copper capping, louvered shutters fit the bill. Louvered shutters are offered in a wide variety of louver sizes and configurations as well as materials. Louvered shutters are a great solution for someone who loves a traditional feel with plenty of natural light.
Movable Louvered Shutters
This popular shutter style adds southern charm and function that makes them popular above and below the Mason-Dixon. These shutters are extremely customizable in width of slats or louvers, panel layout, hidden tilt rods and custom colors. No matter your customization, they allow in plenty of light and look great from the inside or out.
Add classic style to your family home with paneled shutters. These shutters feature panels that are available in a variety of profiles. Raised panels, flat panels/shaker and v-groove panels are often accompanied by inset rims to add details for one-of-a-kind design to make your home truly unique.
Board and Batten Shutters
Board and batten shutters are created with a series of vertical boards connected with horizontal battens. They are great for adding a rustic look to homes or to customize according to window width. They are available in composite materials and solid wood.
If you can’t decide which style is your favorite, combination shutters provide the best of both worlds. Generally a louver on top and panel on bottom, combination shutters offer a unique, timeless look for your home.
Bahama shutters, named for their sturdiness and protection during tropical storms, are common along the coast and inland. Ideal for beach homes, these exterior shutters hinge at the top of the window, making them perfect to draw in a breeze on a nice day.
