The most rustic looking of popular exterior shutter styles, board and batten house shutters were the most common type of shutter in America until the mid-18th century, when lighter and open louver shutters became more common. The board and batten shutters could be bolted and were thick, sturdy and good at protecting homes from inclement weather and intruders. Today they are most often used as ornamentation that brings back the charm of that era in our history.
Style and Function
Although the name board and batten makes you think wood, as they were originally made from wood boards, they are often made today in inexpensive and durable vinyl. Exterior vinyl shutters, made of urethane materials, are resistant to cracking or rotting from sun or water damage, and require less maintenance than traditional wood shutters. Home improvement stores offer a wide variety of board and batten shutters. Widths of these types of house shutters usually vary more than louvered or raised panel shutters, and really allow you to achieve a unique look through the different sizes and styles. Some board and batten shutters have spaces between the vertical boards, to allow sunlight and air to pass through. The number of vertical boards typically ranges between two and five, with a board crossing these horizontally at the top and bottom. They are also available curved at the top for rounded window openings.

Frequently Asked Questions
The instructions were not very good & my husband & I are not "dummies". I am disappointed.
I was nervous about ordering shutters from online website.. when shutters arrived and we put them up..... we loved them. Would highly recommend this item
I love these shutters! We had gotten 4 sets over a year ago and decided to add a set to another window. You can't tell a difference between the 2. There was no fading or wear at all. Installation is a breeze and they look fantastic!
Everyone that drives by compliments us on our new shutters. They are really nice, I have people walking up to them because they don't believe me that they are actually vinyl. They thought they were wood! Love the look of my house now! Can't beat the price and the quality is really nice. Easy to install, I did it myself!!! I also ordered the decorative hinge set and I totally Recommend them too!!! I can't say enough! quick shipping easy install!
Couldn't be more pleased with my shutters!
I ordered 5 sets of shutters for my home and was very pleased with how easy the ordering process was and the delivery was quick -- both times! When we were installing the original order, I realized I had forgotten one window. I placed a second order and again was pleased with the quick delivery. They give my house the finishing touch it needed. Will definitely keep this site in mind for future improvements. Thanks.
Perfect addition to my ranch style house

Was very pleased with the products that I ordered, I did my whole house with them, it completely changed the look of the house. I was pleased with the service that I received and would do business with them again.
Very good quality for the price. Construction is durable. I began hanging them yesterday and they look great. The only negative would be the screws on the Classic Blue don't color match exactly.
