Our Antebellum Collection of louvered wooden shutters evokes the tradition and simplicity of plantation living. All of the wood shutters in this collection can be configured with operable lift rods that allow the louvers to be open and closed, giving the maximum flexibility. The shutters are built correctly, in the sense that in the open position, they shed water "to the house", and in the closed position they shed water "away from the house". If ordered in the standard, fixed louver, configuration, the louvers are deeply seated into the stiles, protecting the louver end grain from weather damage.
Each louver frame is built starting with a heavy four inch base rail, which is tenoned into the stiles. Additional rails can be added for structure, aesthetics, or to match a given window configuration. Because of the sturdy mortise and tenon construction, these shutters will withstand weather, gravity and the ravages of time better than shutters made with inferior materials, design or craftsmanship.
Almost everything about Estate Millwork shutters can be customized, and the Antebellum Collection offers many stylistic customizations, including radius tops, custom rail and stile widths, profiling, custom louver sections and more. You can use our web site as a starting point for getting ideas, but we have a friendly, knowledgeable sales staff who can help you with sizing, options and any other special requirements. If you have a historic home, or need to meet strict preservation guidelines, we have an comprehensive take off service where we will work from your drawings or even old shutters to reproduce, exactly, an historical shutter.
Our Antebellum shutters adorn some of the finest homes in America, including President James Monroe's home at Ashlawn-Highland in Virginia, and are also featured as accents and visual anchors in some of the newest forms of construction. Use our handy online design tool to build your custom louvered shutter today, and get ready to enjoy the shutters for a long, long time to come.
