How Plantation Shutters are Made

Plantation shutters come in a wide variety of styles, materials and finishes. In reference to how they are made, you will see two terms used to convey how they are built: "Custom shutters" and "Custom made shutters." A company selling "Custom shutters" or customized shutters may take a pre-built, stock size shutter panel and cut it down to fit your window. This often results in a shutter that does not fit your window correctly. In addition, the shutters are not proportional to the window size. All windows are unique and there is not a standard size, so you can’t assume that all of the windows in your home will have the same measurements. If you want the perfect fit, only a shutter built to the exact dimensions of your individual window will enjoy trouble-free operation without any gaps around the frame.

Custom Made Shutters

Eclipse Shutters produces a plantation shutter that is custom made for the windows in your home. Every part of your plantation shutter is measured and specifically made for each individual window. This provides a beautiful finished product for you home. By fabricating each shutter to exact specifications, we are able to offer an industry-leading 25-year warranty for worry-free window coverings that will last for many years to come.
