Composite grooved panel custom made shutters integrate a solid flat composite section with vertical grooves bordered by the stiles and rails. This unique style is a cross between raised panel and board & batten shutters. Composite shutters are constructed from Extira™, a solid pressed durable material. It is virtually impervious to moisture, rot, and termites, insuring an extremely long life. While sizes are not “custom”, both the width and height are available in quarter inch increments.

Exterior custom made 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 outdoor 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.
A divider rail on exterior composite grooved panel shutters can be located at a standard or custom location. To specify a custom location, provide the measurement from the bottom of the shutter to the center of the divider.
See measuring instructions for functional custom made shutters in greater overall detail.
