Exterior Shutter shopping for your home can be a difficult and time consuming process. At Hooks and Lattice it is our goal to make the exterior shutter buying process as easy and as quick as possible.
Much like framing a work of art, well-chosen shutters can draw attention to an architectural window or balance a poorly-placed or sized window.
Newer homes today are often featured with decorative fixed shutters mounted directly to the home for ornamentation purposes only. While this is an improvement from the lack of exterior shutters, many home owners are starting to recognize the aesthetic value of exterior window shutters that give the appearance of an operable exterior shutter. This has led to the increased use of shutter hardware such as faux exterior shutter brackets, L-shaped shutter hinges, pintels, slide bolts and shutter dogs. At Hooks and Lattice we try to give each homeowner every possible option to ensure they are getting the look and feel they want from their exterior house shutters.

What were shutters used for?
Originally swinging shutters were designed to protect the home from wind and weather. Before the advent of exterior glass shutters, which were operated from the interior would keep out unwanted heat, pests, wind, rain snow or intruders. Oftentimes homes would use raised panel exterior wood shutters or board and batten style panels on the lower level windows for security and louvered shutters for air circulation near the bedrooms on the upper windows. More recently shutters have become more of a necessity in hurricane prone areas such as the south were new building codes are requiring either high impact rated safety glass or operable hurricane rated storm shutters. With windows, you can never be too safe - we also offer hurricane shutters that meet Dade County's rigid requirements. Fiberglass Bahama shutters and Bahama shutter hardware kits make installation easy and secure.
