Elevate Your Custom Shutters

If operable louver shutters have captured your interest, wait until you explore all the ways to make your exterior shutters truly unique in every way. From shutter configurations to optional tilt rods, mouse holes, capping options, and more, the possibilities are nearly endless.

Shutter Configurations

The placement of shutter rails determine the shutter configuration and creates a very distinctive look. Configurations are typically referred to as a percentage of the total length of the shutter to allow for complete creative freedom.

Tilt Rods & Mouse Holes

Tilt rods are used on operable louvers to open and close the louvers. A mouse hole is a notch that houses the bottom of the tilt rod when closed. For those who don't have operable louvers, these elements can be added for decoration to fixed louver shutters.

exterior shutter capping options

Shutter Capping

Capping prevents water from collecting on top of the shutter and seeping down into the joint where it could compromise the shutter. Upgrade to copper capping to really enhance the overall look of your shutters.
