Federal Exterior Shutters

Not too long ago we manufactured these custom exterior wood shutters in a DIY Shutter kit for this beautiful brick home. The customer wanted to create the look of a deeper relief to the inner wood panel. This was achieved by supplying an additional 3/4 inch thick wood stock made to the same widths as the stiles and rails. The additional materials provided were laminated to the shutter frames by the customer and the extra thickness added gave the deeper recessed appearance that they wanted.

It’s very rewarding to receive these pictures along with this very nice note from our customer:

“Good afternoon,

“I have attached a couple of pictures in regards to the latest project we did using your shutters. We were very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the shutters. Assembly of the shutters went very smoothly and the extra pieces that we applied gave the shutters a nice depth for the application. It was a pleasure doing business with you, and your company was very accommodating with the specialty items that we requested.

We look forward to working with you in the future.

Thank you”

If you find yourself traveling towards the South Jersey beaches this Memorial Day set aside some time for a little side trip down Route 9. This will take you right through the village of Cape May Court House where you can see the Cape May County Court House that was built in 1850.

In the 1990’s when it came time to replace the exterior shutters of the Court House their maintenance department turned to us for our DIY Shutter™ Kits. Over 20 pairs of operable louvered shutters and shutter hardware were supplied in our exclusive kits for the department to assemble. Now, over a decade later, the exterior shutters still adorn this historic landmark for all to see on their way to Cape May.

The shutter style used on the Cape May County Court House is our 1.7/8″ Traditional Operable Louvered design. Since these are exterior shutters they were made from solid Spanish Cedar. Frame joints are traditional pegged mortise-and-tenon joinery construction which makes the shutters easy to assemble on-site with a pair of clamps, a bottle of exterior grade glue, and a drill.
