Why are your prices usually better for the same products? 

We keep our over-head low and pass that savings on to our customers.  Since we need to visit your site to measure the windows and make color selections we do not invest money in a retail outlet.  This saves everyone money.  We make a fair margin on each sale and our business has grown over the years, almost all by referrals.

 

What is the difference in louver size on plantation shutters? 

Many louver sizes are available from classic plantation size of 2 1/2″, popular 3 1/2″, larger 4 1/2″ and the smaller 1 3/4″ and 1 1/4″ traditional louvers that are usually done in 4 panels, often double-hung or café style.  These sizes often give a different design feel and work better in some windows/decors than in others.  A lot of it comes down to personal preference.

 

Do you work with designers? 

We love to work with designers!  We can all meet on-site or follow a design plan that your designer established.

 

Which is better fauxwood or real wood plantation shutters? 

Both of them have there merit.  Like all things it is a tool for a job.  The fauxwood is very popular for its durability and long-term low-maintenance.  Most people can not tell the difference between the fauxwood and painted real wood.  Now, fauxwood shutters can come up to 36″ wide for a single panel.  Wood shutters can come up to 42″ wide.  This allows for maximum unobstructed view. They both come in a huge array of popular neutral colors.   When it comes to stained plantation finishes we prefer actual wood to faux wood.   There is a beautiful assortment of colors, finishes and details and the equate to fine furniture for your windows.
