The Window Design Group Composite shutters last longer, resist weather better, clean easier and add more value to your home more than any other window covering.
Our composite shutters are made using a mixture of plastic and wood fibers treated with zinc borate and phenolic resins. As they do with shutters made with other materials, We paint them in a variety of colors and make them in sizes to fit most your windows. They have a smooth surface that has the look of real wood.
The cost of composite shutters and our wood shutters normally are the same cost based on window style. The different shutter styles, vary in price due to different construction methods. Options such as, custom wood cutouts and specialty shapes, increase the cost.
Composite shutters offer several advantages when compared to wood shutters. Phenolic resins increase moisture resistance, while zinc borate increases resistance to rot and termites. The plastics used in the mixture also reduce the uptake of moisture. This results in less maintenance and a longer life span. We offer our composite shutters with a lifetime warranty. Compared to vinyl shutters, composite offers the strength of wood and can be milled, giving an authentic look of a timeless traditional wood shutter.

Proper shutter installation is almost as important as the shutter itself—an improperly installed shutter can bind and be tough to open. The Window Design Group only use the most professional installation crews who will come to your home and install your shutters precisely, making sure that every shutter operates the way it's designed to.
Before the installers arrive, remove all old window treatments and move any furniture blocking the windows away from the wall. This can also be done by your installation crew by making this arrangement with your decorator at time of order. This makes it easy for your installation team to get right to work on your shutters.
Your installer will attach the frame to the wall inside the window opening for an inside mount, or on the wall around the window opening for an outside mount. Once the frame is secured in place, your installer will hinge each shutter panel into the frame. The panels feature a built in "Exclusive hidden magnet system" that keeps them closed tight to the frame, but able to be opened with a slight pull.
If you have any questions about your shutter operation, don't hesitate to ask your installer, or you can always call us.
