Real Wood Plantation Shutter Truths Revealed
I am constantly amazed by the amount of misinformation floating about when it comes to information about Real Wood Plantation Shutters. Bottom line; Shutters are the single hottest trend in Window Coverings today. With so much concentration on this one type of Window Treatment, a number of myths have developed to better position some sellers of Shutters when it comes to price, delivery time, and product benefits.

Myth #1 - Real Wood Plantation Shutters are not as strong & durable as many manmade material shutters.
Simply not true. In fact, Real Wood Shutters have something Mother Nature can make and man has tried to duplicate for years, but hasn't perfected. Mother nature still holds the trump card when it comes down to the raw materials that go into Real Wood Shutters. The fibrous nature of wood acts, at the microscopic level, like millions of layers of interconnected individual fibers pushing and pulling on each other to maintain their originally grown shape and direction. For this simple reason, most shutter manufacturers only make wide panels (over 24 inches) and / or specialty shapes like arched top panels in real wood only. If you have extra wide windows and want to minimize the number of shutters panels required to cover the window, Real Wood Shutters are exactly what you want.
Myth #2 - Real Wood Plantation Shutters take too long to build making them impractical.
Again, not true. With the advent of pre-primed and sanded wood materials that go into an assembled Wood Shutter, production time is typically only a few days more than manmade material shutters. When you consider the fact that Real Wood Shutters will outlast their man-made shutter counterparts, Real Wood Shutters are custom painted so you can get them in the exact color you need, a few extra days in production goes a long way in valued added benefits.
Myth #3 - Real Wood Plantation Shutters are just too expensive.
This is the most common myth of all. Although it is true that Real Wood Plantation Shutters are slightly more expensive than manmade material shutters, you need to consider the bang for the buck you get by upgrading to Real Wood Plantation Shutters vs. manmade alternatives.
