If you are looking for a way to greatly enhance the exterior of your home, consider one or more sets of decorative shutters.
Shutters look great on homes with almost any architectural style. Shutters can be hung over all types of siding, brick, stucco, or stone.
Shutters can be made from a variety of materials. One low cost option, vinyl shutters, are commonly available in louvered and paneled styles. Shutters made from wood can be a beautiful although slightly more expensive alternative. “Board and batten” is one of the more popular styles for wooden shutters.
Cedar is an excellent choice for exterior wooden shutters due to its closed cell structure. It naturally resists rot and is one of the more reasonably priced wood species that can withstand exterior use.
Furthermore, cedar can be primed, painted or even stained. Cedar’s natural beauty is best showcased by using a transparent stain and multiple coats of exterior polyurethane.
