The simple composition of premium wood board and batten exterior shutters is what makes it globally appealing. Vertical boards are braced with horizontal battens. The result is a sturdy panel that can be hinged to be functional or fixed in a stationary position. Our premium wood board and batten shutters are constructed from solid kiln dried California Redwood or Western Red Cedar. While sizes are not “custom”, both the width and height are available in quarter inch increments.
Width: 12 – 32″ in 1/4″ increments
Height: 30 – 96″ in 1/4″ increments
Vertical Boards: 1″ thick (width adapted for panel)
Horizontal Battens: 1″ thick x 3-1/2″ height
A third centered batten is added on panels 55″ and over in height
Painted – 9 standard colors
Custom painted – Benjamin Moore & Sherwin Williams colors (one time $100 charge)
* Unfinished board and batten shutters are not available so all surfaces can be factory sealed

Wood board and batten exterior shutters can be installed to be functional (swing open and closed), but most often are stationary. Non-functional exterior shutters require less precise measurements than those that operate.
Measure each window width from the outside edge of window trim to the same spot on the opposite side. Calculate the shutter panel width, starting with the smallest window. Window widths narrower than 60 inches can appear to have functional outside shutters by ordering panels half of the window width. Windows larger than 60 inches, while unable to appear functional, should use panel sizes between 30% and 50% of the window width. Consider panel widths of narrow windows when determining panel widths for larger windows. Do not exceed a house shutter width greater than 50% of the window.
Measure each window width from the top edge of the window trim to the bottom edge of the window trim. If there is a sill at the bottom of the window, measure to the top of the sill. Install the shutters about 1/4 inch above the sill. Exterior wood shutters are sold in 1/4 inch increments to best fit the window.
See measuring instructions for functional shutters in greater overall detail.
