Signature homes come with a lot of bells, whistles, and finishing touches, including shutters for windows. Shutters are one of the most overlooked architectural elements, yet the impact of their presence is undeniable. Windows appear larger and more significant and homes seem more authentic to their era, truer to their style, more gracious to passersby, and better maintained to hold property values. Top manufacturers such as Ply Gem and Mid-America go to great lengths to make a superior shutters that will last a lifetime, and they’re the shutters of choice at our Builders FirstSource lumberyards and showrooms in New York.
Find your perfect match for your two-story colonial in louvered shutters with the subtle cutout of a cathedral top or a classic straight edge. Try board and batten shutters for the country farmhouse look you’ve always loved. Opt for two, three, or four spaced or joined boards, and you can even get an arched top. For the clean, stately look, raised panel shutters come in single-, double-, and triple-panel designs that emulate the look of fine cabinetry—what the original versions of shutters actually were.
Today, shutters are made of injection-molded polypropylene, polyurethane, or other synthetics designed to last a lifetime without cracking, splitting, peeling, or fading. They come in carefully selected colors designed to complement the tones of stone, brick, stucco, siding, and wood exterior cladding, but most can also be painted in your own custom color. To ensure every window can have a shutter—even arched or Palladian windows—manufacturers make exterior shutter tops to match their other selections in quarter rounds, elliptical, and even square transom tops. For a truly authentic look, you can complete your personalized style with decorative hardware such as hinges and S hooks.
Whether your home is a Craftsman or contemporary, French provincial or rustic farmhouse, lakefront home or Federal-style mansion, shutters complete the impression, extending the style into curbside appeal.
