What sets your company apart?

Just one visit to our showroom will clearly demonstrate how we are different from big box chain stores. For starters, we take pride in the knowledge and experience of our technicians. The average employee at a home goods chain store is filling a short-term position and has little understanding of the products he or she is selling. In contrast, our technicians are highly trained. We are meticulous in our measurements and installations to ensure a perfect look for your home. As an added bonus, our expert measurements are free of charge.

What are ShutterSMART Polyclad Shutters?

Our ShutterSMART Polyclad Shutters are handmade right here in California. Their superior construction features a solid poplar wood core, which is unquestionably more desirable than cheaply constructed MDF cores. The solid wood core is housed within a polyester resin (polyresin) surface.

Why are these shutters superior to the alternatives?

Most shutters available on the market are made of vinyl, which is both softer and heavier than our polyclad products. Compared to our products, these alternatives are susceptible to damage. Solid vinyl shutters also feature excessive framing, which prevents homeowners from fully opening the shutters to let in the sunlight and enjoy the view. Our ShutterSMART Polyclad Shutters are not only more durable and aesthetically pleasing; the polyresin surface offers unique benefits as well. When polyresin dries, it is nearly unbreakable. It’s easy to clean, never requires repainting, and resists fading, cracking, warping, peeling, and discoloring even under the harshest sun.

What are the advantages of the hollow slats?

The intelligent design of ShutterSMART Polyclad Shutters includes hollow slats, which traps heat within. This means that the shutters offer insulation for your home similar to that of a high-efficiency window.

Do you offer a warranty?

Absolutely. We stand behind the quality of our products with a limited lifetime warranty. It covers both manufacturing defects and the polyclad surface.
