Exterior Composite Batten Shutters

Exterior composite shutters can be installed to be functional (swing open and closed), but most often are stationary. Composite batten shutters have only one presentable side. Non-functional exterior shutters require less precise measurements than those that operate.

Width for Non-Functional Batten Shutters

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.

Height for Non-Functional Composite Shutters

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 composite shutters are sold in 1/4 inch increments to best fit the window.

See measuring instructions for functional composite shutters in greater overall detail.

Our house took a direct hit from Hurricane Irma last year when the storm made landfall in our ocean front yard as a Category 4 storm. Fortunately our concrete house is a bunker like structure and withstood the storm quite well. We wanted to dress up the street side of the house so we added your shutters to diminish the bunker like look, a big improvement. Your company was great to deal with and the quality of the shutters is top notch.


My experience was great. Thanks.
