Tips for Buying a Quality Shutter, USA-made shutters near Charlotte, North Carolina (NC)

In addition to discussing why we love shutters, we also love discussing tips for buying a quality shutter. After all, if you go to any big box store, you will find endless amounts of shutters. Which ones are the best for your home? Which ones will withstand the test of time? What construction methods are best when purchasing a shutter?

We don’t blame you if you don’t know the answers to these questions. In fact, we don’t blame you if you’ve never even thought of these questions in detail. Understanding the nuances of what makes a shutter one of good quality is hard! That is why we are here to make it a little easier. Read on to learn more about our tips for buying a quality shutter for your home.

Tip #1: Construction

One of our biggest tips for buying a quality shutter is to look at the type of construction used to create the shutter. Over the last 30 years, our team has perfected our prized custom shutter design and process to provide the highest quality products for your home. This means that our shutters look gorgeous and are made to last.

To create our shutters, we begin our 15,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we combine our state-of-the-art equipment with our Amish construction methods. This combination of New Age equipment and old-world technique allows us to make and manufacture our artisan shutters in a way that brings dimension, durability, and light control to your home. Another benefit? Because we are owned and operated locally, our team members can easily measure your home and ensure that your shutters fit perfectly within your home. Our hand-built shutters are sure to impress no matter which room they reside in.

Tip #2: Style

Another one of our tips for buying a quality shutter is to see what styles are offered. If you are only given a couple of options when it comes to the color, cut, and staining, then we encourage you to look elsewhere. Our team of experts enhances the beauty of our shutters by offering you various customization options. After all, no two homes are designed alike, so why would one universal shutter exist?

Whether you want the shutter to blend in with your current aesthetic or you want them to be the main attraction, we can help you find the best cut and colors to create the perfect shutter for your home.
