First, you will need to specify measurements for each shutter (see guide below). Once we receive your request, we should be able to come back with a same-day quote, depending on the amount of custom work you’re looking for. Once all the paperwork has been taken care of, you should see your final product within 3-4 weeks.
Measuring for Exterior Wood Shutters
An accurate measurement for your shutters is a key part of the process, and while it may seem like a difficult task, our tips will help make measuring a breeze.
First, you’ll need to measure for shutter width. Using a measure or yardstick, measure your window’s width at the top, bottom and middle. Record your measurement in inches to the nearest 1/16th of an inch, and always take down the smallest number. If you’re measuring a window that needs two shutters, the number you take down will be your pair width, and if it only requires one shutter it will be your shutter width. Also, if you want your shutters to open and close subtract 1/2 an inch from the overall width, otherwise your wood shutters will be for decorative purposes only.
Second, you will need to account for shutter height. Record the height in inches from the windowsill to the very top position of the window. Also, for operable shutters, subtract the 1/4 an inch from the overall height. Do this for every window, and your home will be ready for a custom wood shutter makeover!
Estate Millwork Exterior Wood Shutter Advantages
We strive to be the most efficient, highest quality millworker in the industry. Our commitment to excellence means you will never have to worry about the durability or lifetime of your shutters, as we only use top-grade solid lumber in all of our constructions.
Spanish cedar wooden shutters not only look wonderful, but also add definite value to a property. While some companies may use inferior lumber, Estate Millwork’s handpicked Cedar can resist any number of common pests, including both insects and rotting.
In an industry that can be known for issues such as deforestation, we are an environmentally conscious company, using only hardwoods that come from sustainable forests. Our high-tech processes and technologies allow us to get a maximum use out of every piece of lumber used to create an exterior shutter.
