When first used by the Tudors five hundred years ago, shutters were functional and provided protection from the elements. Window width then dictated whether they were installed on the inside or outside. As time and technology passed, they became less functional and were used less. They became popular again as the 21st century approached when interest in Victorian décor resurged and they are now one of the most popular window treatments and decorative elements.
Custom Cedar Shutters
Custom Cedar Shutters, made from Canadian Western Red Cedar, are the ideal choice for your home. Red Cedar is a lightweight, yet sturdy medium density timber that provides the best insulation. Technically speaking, Red Cedar’s internal, cellular makeup generates air spaces that provide higher insulation standards. Normally speaking, Red Cedar can handle Australian weather better than all other woods.
That’s just one of the advantages Custom Cedar Shutters offers. Additional advantages are as follows:
• Most wood shutters are pasted together, which means their construction cannot be certain. Red Cedar Shutters are etched from solid wood and will not decline with time.
• the trees from which wood used for shutters grow in the Pacific Northwest, where conditions are damp and subject to fungus, insects, and microorganisms and have, thus developed natural abilities to fight off such problems, as well as humidity, rot, and decay. Such also makes Cedar Wood Shutters resistant to cracking and twisting.
• Red Cedar Shutters require very little maintenance. Just wipe them clean them with a soft, damp cloth.
• The shutters are uniquely versatile. They can be placed on the exterior or the interior of your home, along with glass doors and windows, and can along balconies. They can also be used as doors, room partitions, and to cover arches and uniquely shaped areas (e.g. bay windows).
• The shutters come in a wide variety of color choices, bleaches, and stains – more than enough to satisfy every taste and style.
• The shutters immediately bring attention to and add texture and warmth to any room.
• Red Cedar Shutters effectively control sunlight and, therefore, protect furniture and other furnishings fading and damage.
