Louvered shutters are the most widely installed exterior window shutter style, and coordinate well with a majority of house designs. Our louvered shutters are constructed with solid incense cedar components in three distinct louver sizes. While sizes are not "custom", both the width and height are offered in full inch increments. All of our exterior panels can then be trimmed to achieve the desired size.

Exterior Wooden Shutters
Exterior wooden shutters can be installed to be functional (swing open and closed), but most often are stationary. Non-functional exterior shutters require less precise measurements than those that operate.
Width for Non-Functional Shutters
Measure each window width from the outside edge of window trim to the same spot on the opposite side. Calculate the shutter panel width, starting with the smallest window. Window widths narrower than 60 inches can appear to have functional outside shutters by ordering panels half of the window width. Windows larger than 60 inches, while unable to appear functional, should use panel sizes between 30% and 50% of the window width. Consider panel widths of narrow windows when determining panel widths for larger windows. Do not exceed a house shutter width greater than 50% of the window.
Height for Non-Functional Shutters
Measure each window width from the top edge of the window trim to the bottom edge of the window trim. If there is a sill at the bottom of the window, measure to the top of the sill. Install the shutters about 1/4 inch above the sill. Exterior wood shutters are sold in full inch increments, but can be trimmed to match the window height.
See measuring instructions for functional shutters in greater overall detail.
