Exterior Wooden Shutters by Estate Millwork
Exterior shutters make a statement - and your home deserves the elegance of timeless and durable Estate Millwork premium-quality exterior shutters. Our solid wood shutters are available in a wide variety of styles and materials, and will increase the distinction and charm of any home they adorn. Estate Millwork exterior shutters are crafted from sustainable-harvest top-grade hardwoods, then carefully dried and stored. At our eco-friendly wooden shutter plant, Estate Millwork controls quality every step of the way -- from tree to finished product.
The process of creating our durable and distinctive exterior shutters begins with the hand selection of rough wood stock. We start with top grades of hardwood (FAS, 2FAS and CLEAR) and hand-select each board. Our use of hardwoods distinguishes us from other manufactures that use soft wood such as western red cedar, incense cedar, or pine. By hand-selecting each board, we are able to minimize waste, maximize quality and provide our customers with extremely durable, solid wooden shutters that outlast the vinyl or low-grade veneer shutters our competitors are selling. We even manufacture exterior shutters in exotic hardwoods such as mahogany and teak.
Our high quality custom wood shutters are milled by hand, to your specifications.
Estate Millwork's exterior shutters are all custom-built to your specifications. We use 18th-century mortise-and-tenon joinery methods in our state-of-the-art mill. Our solid wood shutters can be constructed with operable louvers or fixed louvers in a variety of configurations, and can be crafted from various species of wood, including poplar, cherry, maple, cedar, mahogany, oak, and teak. A combination of modern automation and traditional craftsmanship allow us to produce the highest quality shutters on the market, while still offering competitive pricing.
Once the lumber has been selected for your custom exterior shutters, our expert woodworkers process it in-house. The rough lumber is transformed into finished dimensional lumber using computer software to maximize yield and quality. The dimensional lumber is then machined by precision CNC equipment (Editor's note: Much of our in-house equipment is designed by Estate Millwork employees.) which allows us to economically produce shutters with minimal waste. The parts are then handed over to our talented craftsmen for final assembly. Each set of shutters is machine-sanded, hand-finished, and optionally primed, painted, or stained to your specifications.
