Shutters come in different styles which include louvered, board and batten, solid panel and raised panel, and Bermuda or Bahama. Louvers offer great rain protection when closed, and they can be movable or fixed. Board and batten shutters generally consist of several boards which are vertically mounted with the horizontal or “Z” cross bracing and they are traditionally used on barn-style homes for a rustic country feel. Panel shutters are determined by the number f panels per shutter with three panels in varying sizes depending on the size of the shutter.

Compsite shutters are durable and authentic, which are usually made of a combination of PVC, wood, and fiberglass.
