What are the different types of shutter materials?

There are four popular shutter materials: Vinyl, polyclad, composite, and wood. Each material has different attributes, and choosing the right material depends on your personal preference. Vinyl is a sturdy shutter material that requires minimal maintenance. Polyclad window shutters have a hardwood core with vinyl wrapped around it. Composite shutters are made from a mix of wood and other materials to give you an inexpensive and attractive window treatment. Wood shutters are sealed and finished to give you a durable shutter that can match your color preferences. Your shutter installer can help you choose the best material to suit your home.

Can I install shutters on differently-shaped windows?

Window shutters are the perfect window treatment to outfit oddly-shaped windows. If you have accent windows that are difficult to cover with other types of window coverings, then shutters are the best choice. Window shutters can be customized to fit accent windows with curves, angles, and arches. Speak with your shutter installer about customizing your new shutters to fit all of your windows.

What colors and styles are available for shutters?

Shutters can come in a variety of colors and styles to match your interior design and personal preference. Depending on the material you choose, your shutters may be stainable to enhance a natural wood color and grain pattern. If you prefer a contemporary appearance, then you may desire white vinyl or polyclad shutters. Shutters can also come in other contemporary colors, such as blue, red, or green.
