How to Choose a Plantation Shutter
If you are considering plantation shutters, it's important to know what to look for in terms of construction and quality. Here we will cover what to look for and how to choose a plantation shutter. Although every shutter is composed of the same basic parts, it's the detail and precision found in each component that combines to creates the world's finest plantation shutter.
Plantation Shutter Construction
When choosing plantation shutters, look at the material, specifications and stile thickness. A Kirtz Shutter stile is thicker than an average shutter, and made only of authentic hardwoods such as maple and mahogany. The quality construction and material allow Kirtz to build a shutter up to 96" high with out a center support (divider rail), 24" higher than industry standards! The result? Optimum flexibility in the design of your custom shutter, and more unobstructed view than any other shutter available today.
Choosing a Quality Plantation Shutter
A louver from Kirtz Shutters is made functional by its elliptical shape and the 1/2" of overlap that effectively blocks light. It is made beautiful by the extra attention it receives in preparation for finish. Did you know that each louver end is burnished, or sanded? By burnishing each louver end, the paint or stain will adhere smoothly. This small detail insures no visible part of a Kirtz Shutter is rough and unfinished, a claim few other shutters can make. If you desire a top quality product, look for details like this when choosing a plantation shutter.
