Interior Custom Shutters

Interior shutters can be purchased as stock size shutter panels or as custom shutter units. There are many benefits to purchasing custom shutters versus the alternative. Fit: Custom shutters are crafted from raw material to the 1/16″ of an inch for each individual window opening. An interior shutter unit manufactured to such close tolerances will insure the best overall fit. Standard size shutter panels are made in fixed sizes and usually post-production trimming to fit the window.
