Hybrid Wood Shutters

We recently received a call from a customer that had purchased shutters from Breslow about 10 years ago. They were in need of repair and she needed us to look at them to determine what could be done. She was also interested in installing additional shutters in her bedroom. We set up the appointment and went out to inspect their shutters. Unfortunately they had lost the louver pins. Thankfully the Hunter Douglas shutters come with a lifetime warranty and were able to fix them.

We then measured the large window (about 90″ wide x 60″ high) in the master bedroom. It was a four-sided window bordered by a basic 3-inch colonial trim. Over the last decade, shutter quality and design have greatly improved, and Hunter Douglas now offers hybrid composite wood materials that are indistinguishable from real wood shutters. Hunter Douglas makes these hybrid shutters with the same high-quality dovetail construction as it does with its more expensive real wood shutters. This attention to detail and quality is unusual in the shutter industry today as other manufacturers primarily focus on producing the cheapest products. As a result, Hunter Douglas shutters are the absolute best shutter made today. Because of this new hybrid option, we were able to deliver beautiful high-quality shutters for a lower price then the shutters we had installed 10 years earlier! And remarkably, they will be even better. Of course the customer loved this.

While measuring we noticed large cranks and window locks on the windows. We navigated around this cumbersome obstacle by using a deluxe casing frame that installs over the top of the old frames which provides needed clearance around the obstructions. During installation we improvised even further by extending the frame around all four sides of the triple casement window and built some T-posts to separate each window panel. The T-post allows us to hinge the center door. Our customers were so happy with the results in the Master Bedroom that they asked us to price out their guest room. The window treatments for the extra room put them over budget, but by taking advantage of Breslow Home Design Center’s current no-interest financing offer they decided to do it all.
