Purchasing custom wood shutters for your home is a big decision and investment.
But, before you sign your name on the dotted line, you’ll want to make sure the company is credible and their product is durable.
In this blog post, we’re sharing five questions you should ask to help find the right company to work on your project.
What shutter material(s) should I choose for my home?
Where will your shutters be installed? Kitchen or master suite? Living room or laundry room?
The location of your shutters is an important factor to consider as some materials work well in areas with moisture while others don’t.
At Avalon, we offer our customers the choice between wood and poly. Here’s a quick overview of each:
Wood – We use 100% North American Hardwood because of its strength, durability, and damage resistance in addition to its ease of stain and paint treatments which enables us to paint your custom wood shutters the color of your choosing. Another added benefit of custom wood shutters is they usually have a higher appraisal value for when/if it comes time to sell your home.
Poly – In rooms where moisture is a concern (think bathroom, garage, kitchen, and laundry room), poly shutters are a great option. They’re similar to wood in appearance but are made from high-quality polypropylene that’s known to be moisture resistant.

What size shutter would fit my window best?
Windows and doors come in all shapes and sizes so a one-size-fits-all shutter style simply won’t cut it.
At Avalon Shutters, custom means custom. Our team of professionals will visit your house and take precise measurements to make sure your custom shutters are made for your home using accurate specifications.
How long will it take for my shutters to be installed?
During the process, inquire about the turnaround time for installation. Companies that outsource their parts and materials can run into roadblocks that will slow or completely stall their supply chain which in turn extends your timeframe for installation.
Because our process takes place from start-to-finish in our Perris, California factory, we’re able to offer our customers one of the quickest turnaround times in the industry. At Avalon Shutters we are proud of our 100% on-time production.
Are these shutters American-made?
Where the components of your shutters are made is just as important as how they’re made. Our custom wood shutters are made from 100% North American Hardwood and we’re proud to be a manufacturer of an American-made product.
What type of warranty do you offer?
While window shutters are made to last, there can be issues that arise that affect the integrity of the product. In those instances, you want to be sure your investment is covered with a lifetime warranty.
We offer our customers a limited lifetime warranty that’s transferable to the next homeowner if you decide to sell.
