Exterior shutters accent distinguished homes. Outdoor shutters accent a home's focal points and can draw the eye away from the less-than-perfect. Exterior shutters are an effective architectural asset. Outdoor shutters offer wide choices in design and colors plus modern durability.
See the four primary designs in window shutters here - they are board and batten shutters, raised panel home shutters, louvered window shutters and combinations of louvered and panel. Board and batten shutters have an Old World air but are decidedly today in modern colors; raised panel shutters fit any period and style; louvered shutters may be traditional or modern, and the latter two combined make an architectural statement. Most home shutters are rectangular, but some add an intriguing curve at the top. And color! Each Hooks and Lattice shutter offers up to 40 color choices for home shutters. Wood shutters come in natural, stained or primed for painting.
Homeowners considering exterior shutters for their property want to enjoy the new outdoor décor themselves and hope outdoor shutters will add to their home's curb appeal. Today's exterior window shutters help achieve both those outdoor design goals, and offer more outdoor shutter styles and more colors than ever before.
Add new shutter materials - including vinyl and composite Azek, a cellular PVC that may be called painted composite - to wood choices, primarily long-wearing western red cedar, that are extremely durable, and outside shutters continue to become a better investment. Of course the traditional material for exterior shutters, dating back to hundreds of years ago in Europe, has been wood. While wood is still a popular choice, it has less weather and storm resistance than many newer materials that better resist rain, snow, storms, sun and heat. Azek cellular PVC is basking in rave reviews from homeowners and home contractors for great looks and excellent durability for uses as hard as deck floors.
The Azek outdoor shutters (also called solid core composite shutters) offer the most colors, about 40 different colors, and vinyl exterior shutters come in about 10 colors. Custom colors are also available on our exterior shutters. Wood shutters usually ship in natural wood or primed for painting, as customers prefer.
Hooks and Lattice customer service experts work with customers to choose their shutter design, standard or custom colors and the best materials for exterior shutters by location and climate.
All exterior shutter hardware is available from Hooks and Lattice. Each piece is made of non-corrosive stainless steel powder coated to look like wrought iron, but needing virtually no maintenance. This makes our exterior shutters truly maintenance-free.
