Plantation shutters are not only beautiful they are also the only window covering that will add value to your home.
As much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. Adding shutters to your home can help reduce much of your loss, while enhancing the look of your home.
What type of wood should you use?
We work with basswood shutters as they are most durable wood for shutters. Not only are they lightweight they will also NEVER warp, which is important in our desert climate.
Basswood comes from American basswood trees which are the fastest growing trees in eastern and central North America.
Basswood is the most commonly used wood for plantation shutters. The shutters can be stained or painted and retain their beautiful wood appearance (not plastic).
Plantation shutters are easy to clean compared to blinds and drapes. They are low maintenance window furnishings, which makes them ideal for many consumers.
