Painted exterior shutters are covered with an ultra-durable, water-borne exterior acrylic paint. The factory applied, commercial-grade paint covers all surfaces in a smooth satin finish. Both wood and composite painted exterior shutters are sanded, primed, sanded, and sprayed with two top coats of high-quality exterior grade paint. Painted shutters arrive ready to install.

Painted exterior shutters require a slightly longer production period than unfinished shutters.
Exterior shutters are also available primed. We use a PPG seal grip acrylic universal primer/sealer for wood shutters and Insl-x Corotech oil based primer for composite shutters. The medium gray primed surface will need to be sanded with 220 grit sandpaper and wiped clear of dust before painting. The shutters should then be be fully covered by a quality exterior paint.
ShutterLand outdoor shutters can be ordered unfinished. Wood shutters have light variations in grain and arrive ready to prime or stain. Raw composite shutters, or shutters with any composite components, are smooth and ready to prime, but cannot be stained.
Unfinished composite and wood exterior shutters have been pre-sanded. However, some light touch-up sanding may be necessary before priming or staining. Finishing outdoor shutters for protection from the elements is strongly recommended before installation.
