We are shutter experts! Custom shutters are a beautiful, cost effective way to enhance the value of your home. We'll help you select a style and finish, as well as explain your options for decorative and functional enhancements.
Shutters are available in several distinctly different levels of quality, and understanding these differences is critical to your purchasing decision process. So before you decide, here are some things to consider when comparing companies:
Quality of materials used - we use exclusively 100% solid select Basswood - no engineered, finger joint or pressed materials which could later show through the finish. Our kiln dried Basswood comes exclusively from Wisconsin or Michigan and from State certified forest lands.
Construction quality of the panels - All our interior and exterior wood shutters are custom built to the exact specifications of your windows so they fit perfectly and will provide better energy efficiency. We offer free professional measuring and design. We don't use any pre made panels or component pieces. Everything is custom made to fit your specific window.
Finish - We use exclusively furniture grade nitro cellulous non yellowing lacquer paints with UV inhibitors, any color with free custom stains and paint matches- no water based paints.
Performance - Enjoy the energy efficiency as well as the beauty that wood shutters add to your windows.
According to the National Association of Home Builders, “windows are the largest source of heat loss in the winter and the greatest culprit of heat gain in the summer, due to their low insulating ability and high air leakage rates. Windows are typically energy losers, and can be responsible for losing 25 to 50% of the energy used to heat or cool homes.”
Wood shutters bring value and energy savings to your home all year round by blocking solar heat gain and loss. At the same time they offer UV protection helping to keep your home cool. Your shutter investment will reduce your heating bills and keep the cost of cooling your home down during the hot summer months, and will pay for themselves with lower energy bills by increasing the energy efficiency of your home. They will also reduce sound, as well as protect your floors and furniture from the harmful UV rays. This is only possible with a proper fit which requires a knowledgeable and experienced installer. We do not use any sub-contractors or installers paid by the square foot, employees only.
Reputation - Choose a shutter company that has been in business for a while, so that your investment is protected. Check their status with the Better Business Bureau and Contractors State License Board. We are a family owned business and have been manufacturing and installing custom shutters since 1966, have a A+ rating at the Better Business Bureau, are licensed and bonded and carry liability, workers compensation and auto insurance for your protection.
Warranty - The construction and installation of your shutters and louver doors are warranted to you, the original purchaser, and also fully transferable to the next owner of your home when you move, as follows:
A limited lifetime warranty on installation, workmanship and labor (when installed by Shutters and More, Inc.), and a full ten (10) year warranty on all structural components which includes all moving parts, staples and louver tension. All paint finishes carry a ten (10) year warranty, (except for re-finishing which carries no warranty) and two (2) years on all stains. Additionally there is a lifetime warranty against bleeding.
Compare - To find the best value, you should shop and compare. But be sure you are comparing similar products. Come to our showroom where you can see all the available options on display so you can “feel and touch”, select colors, louver sizes, hardware, framing options, etc. Some companies use misleading pricing structures based on square footage pricing. We provide an all inclusive price for the entire project, and will walk you through the entire purchasing process. Remember all our shutters are proudly made in the USA.
