Custom Wood Shutters
Advantage Shutters carefully hand-crafts Exterior Shutters using quality wood products. We do this to keep the quality of our exterior shutters constant and dependable. Our most common woods we use are Spanish cedar, Cypress and Mahogany. We only finish with paint and not any stain. Stained shutters in our area of the country require annual maintenance with the finish due to the heat and the sun. We have found that most homeowners are interested in a high quality wood product with a minimum of maintenance. Our paint finishes are with either Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore exterior top quality paints.
Our Exterior Shutters are manufactured in Middle TN in our factory in LaVergne, TN. We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality custom wood shutters, backed by our excellent service from long-time experienced employees.
We operate a full wood shop in our factory and, therefore, are capable of producing most styles of shutters that our customers would desire. We can replicate existing shutters or design combinations of several styles for a unique look for a particular homeowner that is different than the run of the mill exterior shutter. Our custom hinges and shutter hardware give the panels a finished look that is not only esthetically pleasing but functional as well. The functional hinges allow the shutters to be held off the siding of the home, at a slight angle, to allow ventilation between the back of the shutter and the siding. This keeps moisture and debris from building up behind the wood and causing deterioration of the wood. With our tie backs, the panels are able to be opened up and maintained easily by the homeowner, and when it is time to repaint, the panels can be lifted off the hinges without much labor or expertise.
Our most common styles of Exterior Shutters are Louvered, Raised Panel, Board and Batten and styles of recessed panels. Our panels for Raised Panel and Recessed panels are made with Extira, a composite material that allows the full width of the panel to be manufactured without any glue up.
