Raised Panel Outside Shutters

Raised Panel outside shutters are used on many home styles throughout the United States, and are second in popularity only to louvered shutters. Our raised panel outside shutters are constructed with solid incense cedar stiles and rails and solid exterior-grade MDF raised panel inserts. While sizes are not "custom", both the width and height are offered in full inch increments, which allows the exterior wooden shutter to then be trimmed to the desired size.

Raised Panel Shutters

Wood raised panel shutters can be installed to be functional (swing open and closed), but most often are stationary. Non-functional outside shutters require less precise measurements than those that operate.

Width for Non-Functional Exterior Shutters

Measure each window width from the outside edge of window trim to the same spot on the opposite side. Calculate exterior shutter panel width, starting with the smallest window. Window widths narrower than 60 inches can appear to have functional wood shutters by ordering panels half of the window width. Windows larger than 60 inches, while unable to appear functional, should use house shutter 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 panel width greater than 50% of the window.

Height for Non-Functional Outdoor 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 outdoor shutters about 1/4 inch above the sill. Exterior shutters are sold in full inch increments, but can be trimmed to match the window height.

See instructions to measure for functional raised panel exterior shutters in greater overall detail.

Outdoor Shutter Reviews

I have an older home and wanted to keep the authentic look of raised panel outside shutters. The original wood shutters had been painted numerous times and were rotten at the hinges and joints. I tried to repair them, but couldn't get them to look very good. I ordered your shutters (with a bit of healthy skepticism, I might add). Your outdoor shutters are great and they look as carefully crafted as the originals. I'll be back to order more. Thanks! 5 / 5 The exterior shutter looks like a work of art. The other house shutters that I have are either molded plastic or older wood ones that have been on the house 25 years. I know that after painting this one and putting it up that it will last at least 25 year. Thanks for the great craftsmanship on the outside shutter.
