Custom Basswood Shutters

Handcrafted at our Factory in Monroe, North Carolina, our craftsman-style wood shutters have been a local favorite since 1993. With modern frame designs and distinctive operating mechanisms you won't find anywhere else, they've been celebrated as "Charlotte's Favorite Shutter" for over three decades. Shutters provide instant glare & heat control, while also adding residual value to your home for years to come. Our specialy shutters can be crafted in a cafe style, or to cover french doors or unique arch-top windows.
