Basswood Shutters

Bass wood shutters are built from the highest quality material. Wood is the most preferable material for building shutters, and not all woods are made alike. Basswood is a superior wood because it is among the straightest of hard woods with fine uniform texture form.

General Basswood shutter characteristics:

  • Does not warp
  • Light weight yet very strong
  • Uniform grain for a beautiful stain finish
  • Low in resin and tannin which may bleed through finish
  • Renewable resource which is replenished as it is harvested
  • Superior gluing and finishing properties.

Custom Shutters

There are no standard windows. A proper custom shutter unit needs to be built for each individual window opening to the 1/16 inch. Any more will result in possible unnecessary gaps in the shutter unit. Do not assume that because two or more windows look the same. Measurements should be done by a professional from our team in order to assure the customer gets the right shutters sizes for each window.
