Timber Shutters for your Home Windows

Timber shutters are an ideal addition to any style of house. They screen your interiors from sun, provide privacy and of course, wooden shutters look great, too. Installing them also improves the value of your home. The principal types of wooden shutters available are:

  • Phoenixwood –This environment-friendly solution comes from fast-growing trees known as Kiritree. Phoenixwood wooden shutters offer a contemporary feel, and is available in a wide variety of stain and paint finishes.

  • Customwood – If you want crisp and clean colours, this is the economical shutter for you. Manufactured with engineered wood with a coating of a hard wearing polymer, customwood is cost-effective and is resistant to scratches.

  • FSC teak – This type of timber shutter is resistant to damage and harder than most softwood options. FSC teak wooden shutters are created from plantation-grown sources.

  • Waterproof ABS – This shutter is perfect for wet areas or rooms where regular steam or weather exposure  would occur. They come in a range of colour and styles.

Contact a professional timber shutter installer to know your options. Woodworkers have tradesman installers who can advise you on the best options for your location and decor.
