Heavy Duty True Louver Western Red Cedar Exterior Shutter
The 1-3/8” thick heavy-duty true louver shutter is built using heavier stiles, rails and slats than many shutters and is ideal for any home that demands superior quality. Our crafsmen use Mortise & Tennon Construction using hand selected Western Red Cedar for superior exterior wood louvered shutters. The design features a beaded stile with recessed rails, giving this shutter a distinctive appearance capable of enhancing the character of any home. Hand selected Western Red Cedar, a naturally decay-resistant wood, is choice for this application. Straight and light in weight, nothing matches the performance of Western Red Cedar. Semi-transparent and solid color stains are an excellent finish. When painted, a good quality, fast drying, oil based primer should be used. Left unfinished cedar will silver and remain maintenance free.
Heavy-duty true louvers lend themselves to a variety of hanging options, which can be completed with hinges and tie-backs from our full line of hard-to-find hardware.
