Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds offers a complete line of exterior shutters in Georgetown, TX made from Western Red Cedar. Exterior wood shutters have a timeless appeal, and the passage of time adds characteristics to wood shutters that cannot be simulated by synthetic products. As a wood shutter ages, the elements can wear down the paint layers. Each shutter then takes on a personality of its own, giving a home unique character that plastic can only imitate.
Nothing matches the performance of Western Red, a naturally decay-resistant wood. That’s why it is our preferred choice for exterior shutter applications. Straight, light in weight, tight grained, it is harvested from Canadian forests and is certified sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council. We also offer other wood species, including Spanish Cedar, Cypress, and African Mahogany.
We have this type of shutter available in six slat options that can be made to meet most specifications. Bahama style exterior wood shutters offer a world of custom choices, including the following:
Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds offers board and batten exterior wood shutters to achieve a desirable Mediterranean feel. For more of a classic ranch style architecture, we incorporate a Z-board. Construction also includes 1" thick, equally spaced, custom-sized boards. Board width is determined by the overall shutter width and board count, which may be specified to achieve custom board counts. To prevent the possibility of sagging over time, each board and batten exterior shutter joint has stainless steel screws, as well as wood pegs. We enhance this time-tested construction method through the use of water-proof exterior glue.
