Have You Wondered How Wood Shutters Are Made?
Artistry and craftsmanship go into making wood shutters, which is why they are a great complement to any home. Unlike their vinyl counterparts, wood shutters are made by hand, measured and cut precisely to match your window’s size and shape.
First, a professional will measure the window and determine whether the shutters will be set inside the frame or outside of it. Next, the slats of the shutters are cut down and sanded to a smooth finish. From there, expert craftsmanship forges the frame and the slats are then aligned in precise formation within the frame to ensure that they open and close smoothly and overlap enough to block out light for privacy and insulation.
The shutters are stained or painted to specifications, depending on the requirements of the customer and the pieces are glued securely together, creating exquisite wood shutters that you will be proud to show off in your home.
There’s a reason why wood shutters are becoming increasingly popular during the past several years, even as vinyl shutters are becoming cheaper. There is no substitute for a natural look to one’s home. There’s no substitute for quality. Most importantly, there’s no substitute for handmade craftsmanship that you get when you have wood shutters custom made to fit your home.
