Only until recently have they become more of a fashion statement, and an accessory to great interior design.

Poly Shutters are synthetic fiber mix shutters, which posses a wood-like appearance with additional qualities such as strength and durability. While relatively new, Poly shutters hold advantages over traditional wooden shutters and modern synthetic alternatives.
With the best energy efficiency, and low maintenance, Poly shutters are a great affordable alternative to wooden shutters. Poly shutters are available in different varieties: vinyl, poly, and poly plantation shutters.
Because Poly shutters are synthetically made, they include fire resistant properties which repel open flames and prevent fires from spreading. Poly shutter are also easily fitted over various shaped windows – even existing custom made windows.
Wooden Shutters are the classic material of choice, and are available in different types of wood such as Basswood, Premium Hardwood, Larchwood, Cederwood and Craftwood. Wood is a sustainable material, keeping its price reasonably low.
Also, wood has set the design standard to which all other synthetics materials imitate: texture, color, feel, and insulation. Relative to other materials, wood is also easy to work with and can feasibly be made into shapes that would not be cost effective using other materials.
A note about our wood: we use only the highest quality woods for our shutters. Don’t be fooled: properly stored, dried, and treated woods will not lose their shape or warp and will maintain a uniform grain and quality finish.
