Many regions of the country are experiencing snow, sleet, ice, and downright cold temperatures. Here is a picture to turn your thoughts right to the tropics. The bahama shutters are hinged to the top of the cabana to deflect the sun or “cool” breeze. For us, this is just the perfect location for exterior shutters. They provide light control, but most of all just look perfectly tropical. Bahama shutters typically use a vertical sub-stile that makes left and right louver sections. The shutters shown here are single wide fixed-louver exterior shutters.
Bahama shutters (sometimes called Bermuda Shutters) offer minimum storm protection. The more solid the panel, the more protection you will receive. Finish wood exterior shutters with the absolute best quality exterior paint possible. Bahama shutters are often exposed to harsh salt air and intense sunlight. Inspect the finish frequently for touch-up.
