“SHUTTERCATION”
Discount Shutters Education
What’s the Difference Between
Real Wood and Faux Wood?


About 15 years ago we started to see discount shutters being manufactured from synthetic materials like polymers
and foams. It used to be shutters were
built by craftsmen and artisans.
Today several manufacturers are mass producing
the parts out of wood and polymers, making the manufacturing process much more stream‐lined and more precise.
Today’s shutter is much higher quality and much less expensive than just 10 years ago.
At first glance, wood shutter and faux wood shutter look the same. However, upon further inspection, the true differences are revealed.


What is the Benefits of Real Wood Shutter? 

Real wood shutter provide a wider range of stains and colors.
In stain colors they also tend to look more authentic.
There’s nothing quite like a beautifully finished shutter in a deep stain.

What is the benefits of Faux Wood Shutter? 

Faux wood shutter is impervious to most environments including damp air
and open windows. Faux wood shutter never need re‐finishing.
Composite Wood Blinds combine the rich look of wood with strength of advanced polymers. More economical than genuine wood blinds,
Composite wood blinds are resistant to:
moisture, scratching, chipping, warpage, fading and cracking.
They provide a life time of resilient beauty and the answer to
Florida's intense heat and humidity!
Specialty Shapes are available in AluCore Poly Shutters® from Gator Blinds®

How do I get the Best Finish? 

The answer is rather odd.
It mostly depends on the country of origin.
If you order real wood, and it’s made in the US, you’re likely to get an
inferior finish due to EPA regulations on painting.
From China we get a complete shutter, and we get pre‐made parts.
Several companies order the parts made in China and then assemble them to the ordered size here in the US. This cuts down delivery time.
Faux wood shutter seem to always have superior finishes regardless of
where they are made.
Products made in Mexico seem to have very poor workmanship and poor finishes.

Gator Blinds® offers an American product manufactured in Orlando FL,
called AluCore Poly Shutters® with lifetime manufacturer warranty !


Always ask your shutter consultant
where your shutters are being manufactured.

Are the Hinges and Hardware Important?

A. Yes, there are several different types of hinges including different colors and sizes.
      There are also hidden hinges available from a few manufacturers and
      “Post Hinges” available from Italy. Stay away from the post hinges as they are
      very weak.


B. The magnets are important provided they work well. They come in many different
      styles, and the manufacturers like to tell you their magnets are better.


C. The staples on the tilt bar are vital. Most people seem to think the tilt bar is for
      opening and closing the shutter. It is not, it’s for tilting the vanes. Many people have
      experienced the staples coming out or breaking. Today’s shutter manufacturers
      use stainless steel staples made just for the shutter.
      It’s very rare to see one break today.


What type of Frame should I use? 

There are several different types of frames.
There are 3 basic categories. Deco, Z Frame and L frame.
Each comes in several different designs.
Since every window is different it’s up to your shutter consultant to help you
to determine which is best for your windows.
There are also special frames for sliding glass doors, bay windows and arch windows. Most manufacturers will offer a wide variety of frames.
Most popular is the Z frame. They make most any window look like a million bucks!


What about delivery times? 

A Shutter takes some time to make.
A Shutter that take 6 - 10 weeks they come mostly from China.
US made shutters take mostly 2 - 3 weeks.


Gator Blinds Shutters which are local take 1 week.


I Leave My Windows Open at Night, Is That OK? 

Yes, if you buy a faux wood shutter.
Never leave a real wood shutter open to the night air.
It will prematurely age it, and the paint will peal.
