Hardwood shutters by Kirtz start at our factory as raw lumber. We typically buy direct from the best lumber mills across the country, with a great deal of our lumber coming from the Northern US.
Lumber goes through the following process to become parts for your plantation shutters.
All lumber is tested upon arrival for proper dryness. Using lumber that has been wet, or is not properly kiln dried could result in warping. Obviously, this would be bad news for a shutter, so each load is tested immediately upon arrival to be sure that it meets the criteria for furniture quality use.
