Types Of Wood Used To Manufacture Shutters


AZ Window Covering utilizes Basswood as the best material for making wood shutters.

Basswood, actually from the American Linden tree, is ideal for shutters for a number of reasons. Here are four basic reasons why we prefer Basswood shutters:

1) Basswood is strong but it is also light
2) Basswood has a grain that is uniform allowing a beautiful stain finish
3) It is easy to glue and to finish
4) Basswood trees are growing faster than they are being harvested
5) Basswood does not warp

Their louvers give your window a clean, modern look, and we manufacture our plantation shutters to give you energy efficiency and endurance so your new investment provides huge savings and added value.

Plantation shutters are incredibly versatile, too. By merely tilting the louvers, plantation shutters let in all the view and sunlight you need. The louvers are the slats that you can adjust to increase – or decrease – the light you let into the room. They can be adjusted by using a mounted tilt rod. Whatever your specific needs might be, from unique window shapes and color matching to frame design, AZ Window Covering has the interior shutters to work with your home.
