Shutter: wood or composite


Consultants brought sample Plantation shutters to the house.

Only decision is between wood or composite. Does anyone have any knowledge about either?

Re: Shutter: wood or composite


Both work. If you aren't going for wood look (i.e. finish color), composites work just fine.

I would never put wood outside if I could help it and agree that unless you plan to leave the grain exposed (like using stain instead of paint) I would use composite.

Re: Shutter: wood or composite


These will be white interior shutters. Composite is much less cost.

We're interested in long term durability. They will be exposed to hot westerly Florida sun.

Thanks, she will likely chose composite.

Inside or out, as long as they're being painted, composite remains my choice.
