Wood Plantation Shutters
Why Choose Wood for Your Plantation Shutters?
When it comes to plantation shutters, one of the first choice a homeowner must make is "From what material do I want my shutters built?". There are many reasons that wood makes the best choice for a plantation shutter.
Wood is a Sustainable and Renewable Resource
Today's ecological awareness of the importance of our forests and trees has lead to more responsible harvesting and replanting by foresters. No noxious or polluting fumes were required to form the substance from which your shutters are made, mother nature did the work herself.
Wood Plantation Shutters are Durable
Shutters are a significant investment in your home, an investment that should serve you for a lifetime. When you choose a custom plantation shutter made of wood, especially a true hardwood such as maple, you know that with proper care, they will not warp, crack or deteriorate with sun exposure. See more information on the durability of wood in the section below.
Wooden Plantation Shutters Offer a Warmth and Refinement not Found in Other Materials
From the earliest of days, wood has been an integral part of the home and hearth man has created for himself. From the graceful lines of a Louis the XVI desk, to the practical silhouette of Mission furniture, the warmth and luster of the material, wood, make these pieces treasured today. Your windows are a central element in the dynamic of your living space. What better way to highlight them than with the natural beauty and warmth of wooden plantation shutters?
Wood Species Used in Plantation Shutters
Here is a list of the more common species used in making wood plantation shutters:
Although considered a hardwood since it is deciduous (loses its leaves in the fall), basswoods is very soft, similar to western white pine, but without the strong grain structure. Basswood is extremely easy to cut, both with machine tools and by hand. It can also be nailed with out predrillling. For these reason, coupled with its wide availability, it is used by many shutter manufactures. Woodworking resources give basswood a low rating for strength. As a result, shutters made from basswood need frequent reinforcements from center supports, and have many width and height limitations.
Commonly used in woodworking, poplar is relatively easy to work with, as it takes manipulation with a saw, lathe or router well. Like basswood, it is considered a hardwood by species, but does not have the density commonly found in many other furniture grade hardwoods.
A premier choice of woodworkers and furniture makers for centuries, maple's natural properties make it a benchmark wood for plantation shutters. The strength of maple far surpasses that of poplar and basswood. Maple's strength and stability allow for a larger, wider plantation shutter than is common in the shutter industry. This gives homeowners more flexibility in shutter design.
Maple's strength also means fasteners stay in place. The staples that connect a tilt rod to the louvers often work there way out over time in softer woods. As a result, shutters do not open and close correctly. Choosing maple wood for your plantation shutter will insure your wooden shutters will not experience this type of failure.
