Utah Shutters builds custom plantation shutters employing a variety of woods. At the current time we do not build composite shutters as we feel the natural wood not only adds incredible beauty and value to your home but often turns out to be more durable as a composite or faux-wood (HDF) plantation shutters.
The types of wood used most often for our interior plantation shutters include: basswood, alder and North American Poplar. We also offer an import wood that is comparable in price to HDF shutters. Though this import wood is still a natural hardwood and is better than using HDF. While each of these woods have their pros and cons and are discussed more extensively in the links below, generally speaking the wood shutter types are fairly similar in durability and vary in other areas.
Whether you know exactly what type of wood you want (Utah Shutters is flexible to whatever your desire and budgets might be!) to be used for your shutters or you are unsure our vast experience in building custom wood shutters for homes across the Wasatch Front means we are more than capable and willing to help you select the best wood type for your custom interior plantation shutters. We’ll be happy to offer our expertise during the in-home visit and estimate process or via other forms of communication to ensure that you come away with plantation shutters you are truly satisfied with.
