Premium High Quality Poplar Louvered Window Shutters Exterior


Window Shutters Exterior Style, From Estate Millwork

If you've decided to redecorate your home, perhaps you are considering adding some sets of shutters. But what kinds of shutters? It depends upon what functionality, style, and purpose you seek. There are two types of window shutters you can order from Estate Millwork: window shutters exterior style and window shutters, interior style. For the remainder of this page, we will focus on our exterior window shutters collections.

Window shutters exterior style offer stately beauty to a variety of home styles. Whatever your decorating tastes, or wherever you live, window shutters exterior style will look dapper when properly fitted and suitably finished.

Estate Millwork offers several styles of exterior window shutters. Any of these styles can work for you, depending upon what kind of home you have and where you live.

Exterior Window Shutters Style: Different Styles and Purposes

Estate Millwork sells many kinds of window shutters exterior style. There are two primary kinds of shutters: louvered shutters and panel shutters. Louvered shutters are composed of thin wooden slats (which can be fixed or operable) set inside wooden frames. Panel shutters are composed of solid wooden panels set inside frames. Within these categorizations, there exist several different exterior window shutter styles.

Paneled Exterior Window Shutters

Raised-panel shutters are composed of solid wooden panels that stick out from the frame. These exterior window shutters look great with many different types of customizations. We believe they look especially nice on architecture in New England and the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.

Flat-panel window shutters consist of recessed wooden panels set inside sturdy wood frames. These window shutters exterior style can also accommodate a wide variety of customizations. Like the raised-panel style, they look good on Cape Cod, Tudor, and Federal-style homes, but when detailed properly, can look handsome on West Coast ranch homes or condos, too.

Board-and-batten exterior window shutters are composed of thick, .rustic.-looking slabs of wood of varying thicknesses. These sturdy, antique-looking window shutters look great on many exteriors, but we find that they're especially charming on row-homes in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and other Mid-Atlantic coastal cities, or on ranch or log homes in the Midwest. However, when fitted with ornate brass knobs or hinges, these rugged exterior window shutters look great on a variety of older and reproduction architecture, too.

Louvered Exterior Window Shutters

Bahama, or Bermuda shutters are unique exterior window shutters that swing up and away from the house because they're top-hinged. They're especially effective in hurricane and storm-prone climates, such as coastal cities and the American Southeast. Most Bahama shutter styles have fixed louvers, but you can also order Bahama exterior window shutters with operable louvers or other customizations.

Plantation shutters are a modern twist on the louvered shutter style. These exterior window shutters consist of wider, paddle-like louvers, and are popular on modern homes. Of all of the window shutters exterior style we sell, we've found that plantation shutters are exceptionally popular as indoor shutters, too. (Imagine them finished with a dark stain, and complemented by chic metal furnishings and deep, sumptuous fabrics.)

Estate Millwork also sells several varieties of louvered window shutters for exterior use. Like our other window shutters exterior style, our louvered collection can be customized to suit your tastes and needs, and can be created with fixed or operable louvers.

Solid Wood Mortise and Tenons

Premium deep pocket mortise and tenon joinery

True Tenons

Our premium quality shutters are carefully constructed using a time consuming and precise operation. Whereas other lower quality shutters are made using screws, nails, dowels or biscuit joints, each of our exterior wooden shutters has a minimum of 4 hardwood tenons. The end of each rail is painstakingly machined to have a 1/2" X 1 7/8" tenon by a custom built tenoning machine that Estate Millwork developed so that we could continue to provide the best quality joinery in the industry, at an attractive price. We gave up the cost, but not the quality.

Deep Pocket Mortises

Each stile is precision machined with a minimum of two deep pocket mortises, and these mortises perfectly fit the associated tenon. Again, Estate Millwork has used precision automation to preserve the quality of our products, while reducing the cost. We have software that connects our website directly to the machines in the plant, and when a customer places an order with us, all of the precision programs for machining the mortises into the stiles are sent to the plant for automatic execution. The mortise tenon joint, is the strongest joint in millwork, and adds tremendous strength, even without the use of glue.

Hardwood Dowels

Once the tenon and mortise have been machined, the parts are put together and a hole is drilled through the mortise and the tenon. A slightly oversized hardwood dowel is driven into the hole, locking the tenon into the mortise for the life of the shutter. Even though glue is not required, Estate Millwork takes the added step of gluing the tenon into the mortise, and gluing the hardwood dowel into the stile.

Hand Assembly

In our commitment to preserving the best of quality millwork traditions in each wood shutter, we have automated much of the drudgery of some of the operations, but assembling a shutter is still something very much in the realm of craftsmanship. After all the parts of each wooden shutter are manufactured, one of our skilled craftsmen fits them together in a specialized jig for dry fitting and final assembly. We do not use pneumatic or hydraulic clamps as they can damage or over-stress the wood. The craftsman uses his innate feel for the materials to set the appropriate clamping pressure prior to drilling and doweling. Each wooden shutter receives the individual attention of craftsmen all along the way, but the final assembly is where the shutter comes together the first time, ready for years of service on your home.


Precision Crafted Louvered Shutters Using State of the Art CNC Machinery

Solid Louvers

Each louver in our louvered shutters is precision machined in a 5 head moulder that can be configured to mould any of our 3 standard production profiles, or custom profiles as specified by the customer. We offer 1/2" X 2 1/4", 3/8" X 1 3/4", and 1/4" X 1 1/4" bullnose profiles, but also have tooling for chevron, beveled, and other louver profiles. Whether the louvered shutter is to use fixed louver or operable louvers, we can even create custom tooling to match existing millwork, or to provide the ultimate in personalization and detailing.

True Louvered Shutter Mortises and Louver Mortises

Each louver in a fixed louvered shutter is seated in a 7/16" deep mortise in the shutter stile. Our CNC machining equipment be instantly programmed to program any variation of louver size, profile, pitch, and spacing, that gives us unlimited flexibility to match historic millwork, or to create custom louvered shutters to a precise specification in terms of louver count, rail placement, and air flow. In the same pass as the louver mortises are being created, our equipment also creates the larger mortises for each rail in the shutter. Unlike many custom shutter manufacturers today, Estate Millwork does not use cheap dowels, veneers, screws, or biscuits. Instead we use old fashioned mortise and tenon joints, even though they are considered by other custom shutter manufacturers as too expensive. Because we have invested heavily in automation, our cost to produce highly custom louvered shutters using solid materials and premium joinery is much lower than other manufacturers, hence: higher quality, lower price.

Solid Tenons

The tenons on both ends of each rail are engineered to give maximum stability to the louvered shutter frame, and when combined with our hardwood dowling, the shutter frame will stay together and be extremely stable, even without glue. But of course we use glue for added strength. For larger louvered shutters, we use a 10 inch baserail that has two tenons and a third feather tenon for additional strength that connects the two main tenons. These tenons are precision machined on a propriety tenon machine that Estate Millwork designed and custom built. Our sophisticated mortise and tenon joinery preserves 100% of the quality of traditional mortise and tenon joinery at a fraction of the cost.


Shutter Options

Thickness, Width, Height

The "slab dimensions" are the size of the actual exterior shutter from top to bottom, left to right, and the thickness. Our default standard thickness is 1 5/16", but that can be varied from 7/8" to 2 1/4" to match existing exterior shutters. The length and height can be specified to the nearest 1/16" inch. Depending upon the style of the shutter, we have made widths up to 20 feet wide, and heights up 30 feet.

Shutter Frame Dimensions

Because all of our exterior wooden shutters are custom built from true rail and stile construction, we have the ability to replicate any component dimension on existing shutters, including rail height, placement, width, thickness, and stile width and thickness. Typically, the bottom rail of our custom shutters is 4. high, and all other rails are 2 1/2" inches. Stile widths are usually 2 1/2" but we have the ability to make them of virtually any width, including different widths for left and right stiles -- sometimes used for pairs of shutters.

Custom Sticking

Out standard products are S4S, or square shoulder sticking, but we have the capability to mould any feasible profile to the inner or outer frame fields. Common choices are ogee, cove and bead, bevel, cove etc. In addition to our stock sticking profiles, we can also custom grind tooling to achieve any desired profile to either match historical wood shutters, or to meet an architects or home owner.s specifications and preferences.

Shiplapping and Beading

For operable shutters, or for decoration, our wood shutters can be machined with a bead on one face of the inside edge of the shutter, and with a ship lap on the other, allowing the shutters to overlap by 3/8" when they are in the closed position - permitting a tighter fit. The left and right shutters are machined as pairs so that in the closed position, each face of the pair has a decorative bead visible.

Panel Profiles

Our raised panel shutters can be raised with our standard scoop profile, but we offer bevels, coves, ogeees and other profiles as well. Additionally, for the extremely discriminating home owner or architect we can create new tooling to match existing historical panel profiles, or to meet with a unique custom requirement.

Louver Styles

Our louvered shutters can be fitted with either our standard bullnose louvers in 3 sizes, or with a chevron or bevel profile as options. And because we are a custom shutter maker, we can also accommodate any special profiles that are specified by the customer.

Cut Outs

Raised Panel and Flat Panel Shutters can have a limitless variety of decorative cut outs machined into the center of the panels. Common shapes are moons, anchors, trees, hearts and we have a large number of stock cut outs which we offer, as well as the ability to match custom patterns that are provided by the customer

Finishes

Estate Millwork can ship our custom wooden shutters in natural, primed, painted or stained finishes. We can match national brand color numbers, pre-tint primers for light or dark finishes, and apply hand rubbed stain finished, even to the time consuming louvered shutters.


Poplar: The Versatile Alternative

Poplar Wood Grain

Often overshadowed by its more illustrious counterparts, poplar hardwood is an unsung hero in the world of woodworking. While lacking the bold coloration and striking grain patterns of its peers, poplar possesses its own understated charm, with a pale olive-yellow brown heartwood and lighter off-white or gray sapwood tinged with subtle greenish hues.

Widely distributed across North America and Europe, the poplar tree boasts rapid growth and abundant availability, making it a sustainable choice for various applications. Its propensity for large, clear sections makes it particularly sought after for secondary uses or applications where visibility is not a concern.

Though considered relatively soft, poplar is classified as a hardwood, ensuring durability and stability despite its softer texture. Its ease of workability is a boon for craftsmen, readily yielding to machining, sanding, and finishing processes. While often relegated to painted or secondary roles, poplar shines as a stain-grade species, gradually deepening in color over time to a richer shade of brown, earning it the affectionate moniker of "poor man's Cherry."

Versatile and affordable, poplar hardwood opens doors to a myriad of possibilities in woodworking and interior design. Its neutral color palette provides a versatile canvas for a range of finishes, from traditional to contemporary, allowing for seamless integration into diverse aesthetic schemes. Whether crafting custom cabinets, intricate moldings, or sleek furniture pieces, poplar's easy workability and consistent texture ensure a smooth and enjoyable woodworking experience.

Moreover, poplar hardwood is an environmentally conscious choice, with its sustainable growth and renewable nature aligning with eco-friendly practices. As a readily available and rapidly growing resource, poplar offers a responsible option for those mindful of environmental impact. Embrace the versatility and affordability of poplar hardwood in your next project and discover the endless possibilities it brings to the table.

Handcrafted with Sustainably Harvested Lumber

At Estate Millwork, we employ a meticulous process to ensure the quality and sustainability of our lumber. Our commitment begins with the careful air drying of much of our lumber, followed by further refinement in low wattage dehumidification kilns to achieve optimal moisture levels.

Every single piece of wood we acquire undergoes thorough utilization in our production processes. Leveraging advanced automated saws and optimization software, we achieve an exceptional yield ratio of 94 percent. This means that nearly all of the wood we purchase is transformed into usable products. The small remainder, comprising mainly sawdust and chips, is utilized efficiently: either utilized as fuel to power our operations, or repurposed by providing bedding and contributing to composting for local cattle farmers.

Our dedication to minimizing waste extends to the sourcing of our materials. A significant portion of the lumber we use hails from Amish farmers within our county. These farmers adhere to traditional practices, utilizing horses for harvesting and operating vintage 1920s sawmills. Such methods not only contribute to the preservation of heritage techniques but also entail lower environmental impact compared to modern industrial approaches.

Furthermore, our commitment to sustainability is evident in the sourcing of our imported lumber. We exclusively procure lumber from plantation-grown sources, thereby ensuring that our operations do not contribute to deforestation or the depletion of natural forests. By prioritizing responsible sourcing and efficient utilization, Estate Millwork strives to uphold environmental stewardship while delivering exceptional craftsmanship.
