At Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds, we offer a comprehensive line of exterior shutters that are made from Western Red Cedar. Exterior shutters certainly have a timeless appeal to them, and as the years go by, they gain charming characteristics and personalities that can’t be simulated by synthetic methods alone. If you’re considering adding exterior shutters to your home, don’t hesitate to contact us today in Austin, TX and start exploring the possibilities.
When it comes to exterior shutters, nothing matches the overall performance of Western Red, which is a wood that’s naturally resistant to decay. Light in weight, tight grained, and straight, it is regularly harvested from forests in Canada and considered certified sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council. For interested customers, we also offer other wood species, including Cypress, African Mahogany, and Spanish Cedar.
Bahama Style Shutters are available with six different slat options that can be crafted to meet most specific specifications. This type of exterior shutter offers a large menu of customization, including:
During your free consultation, one of our experts will help you review these options in greater detail and determine which approach best fits the look you want.
At Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds, we offer board and batten exterior wood shutters for customers who are hoping to achieve a Mediterranean appearance. If you’d prefer more of the classic “ranch” style, a Z-board can be incorporated. For construction, the boards will be custom-sized, equally spaced, and 1” thick. The overall width of the board is determined by the width of the shutters and the board count. To avoid sagging in the future, each shutter joint has stainless steel screws and wooden pegs. Water-proof exterior glue is added as well for reliably long-lasting results.
When your shutters appear on the outer walls of the home, adjustments don’t usually need to be made. That’s why we recommend fixed louvers! This approach provides the desired aesthetics while helping you avoid the stress of any mechanisms being negatively impacted by outer elements. We look forward to creating an entirely customized look, no matter what shape or size you desire!
At Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds, we can create exterior raised panel shutters that can be matched to virtually any unique specifications! Do you have a design in mind?

Our team of carpentry experts will provide excellent handcrafting, helping you make a lasting impression on guests before they even walk through the front door.
We strongly recommend that customers plan to refinish their exterior shutters every seven to ten years. All you have to do is lift the shutters off their panels and repaint them. We can even do this for you if you prefer – just give our team a call! We’ll quote you a reasonable price for the removal, the repainting, and the reinstallation. If you’d like, you can also bring the panels directly to our Manor, TX factory, where we will process them through our professional refinishing system.
