We manufacture historically accurate wood shutters designed to make a home beautiful, lasting and secure. Inspired by the 18th and 19th century houses of Philadelphia, our broad line of exterior shutters reflect varied styles and are designed to be fully operational.
With careful research and knowledge of shutter styles and construction techniques we apply state-of-the-art manufacturing to provide you with the finest wooden shutters at a competitive price. This ensures a level of quality and selection unmatched by other vendors.
Our exterior collection of paneled and louvered shutters is manufactured from kiln-dried Western Red Cedar (Thuja Plicata). Known for its natural beauty and remarkable durability, this wood's exceptional decay resistance is enhanced by the kiln-drying process. By actively removing excess water, the lumber moisture content is reduced to the appropriate level for exterior use making our shutters straight, stable and unwavering.
Precisely milled to exacting tolerances on our computer-controlled equipment, the shutter frames are created with traditional mortise and tenon construction. These frame components are assembled with weather-proof glue, clamped under pressure, and fixed with mahogany dowels. This blend of modern craftsmanship and traditional construction makes our shutters strong, durable, and lasting.
