Thank you all for your support of our current program which has been running since 2004.  We are working hard to get our new program up and running as soon as possible and are expecting to launch July 2018.  In the meantime please note we are no longer taking orders for our current range of plantation shutters.  To continue to provide our expertise in this space, we will leave our Plantation Shutter information up on our website for your information.

Basswood offers a fine texture that is both aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting. In addition, basswood plantation shutters are warp-resistant and lightweight, making them a smart choice for any location or larger windows.
