Why real wood Shutters?

Most faux wood/composite shutters are comprised mostly

of compressed wood and sawdust that's been fused

together with a ton of chemicals and then covered with a

thin vinyl covering to help mask what's really

underneath. Interior grade MDF materials are commonly

known to quickly disintegrate if they ever get wet and are

also extremely heavy so they tend to have the most

sagging and bowing issues. There are also hybrid shutters

where wood and faux wood materials are mixed together.

Faux wood shutters are marketed as being environmental

friendly while in reality the faux-wood manufacturing

process is mostly made from bi-products of oil and gas

which creates pollution and toxic waste. Many consumers

of faux-wood shutters initially have a good experience,

they often find that over the years the color of the

material can in fact fade, yellow or discolor, scratch, and

even stain. In fact, most faux-wood shutters are now

painted with a finish coat to keep them from discoloring.

These materials will often become brittle with age and

sun exposure which actually makes them more prone to

breakage and cracking than their wood counterparts.

Faux woods also tend to be a very heavy material, often

twice the weight of wood which can actually "sag" in the

window after time has passed. PVC, MDF and other

similar materials have also been found to emit their

internal toxins into your homes once heated or exposed to

the sun from your windows.

Today, most faux-wood products are sold by big retailers

often selling by the volume cutting out wood product in

order to maintain a presence in the market place.

Unfortunately their motivator is a high profit margin, not

the quality of their brand. Our mission is to always put

customer satisfaction and quality ahead of our profits!

Choosing real wood shutters not only adds beauty and

value to your home, but it will also help keep your home

cool in the summer and warm in the winter, you'll have

more control of the amount of light that comes into your

home, and they are easier to maintain compared to

blinds.
