24/7 Ordering – No appointment necessary

Since your shutters are customized and ordered through our website, you can do it on your own time. We know it can be frustrating relying on a business that is only open during the same hours that you may be working.

With full-service measure and install companies, you must take time away from work or your busy schedule to meet someone at your home who will take your measurements. This can be time consuming and exasperating.

Avoid the middleman or any high-pressure sales by opting for DIY. Our shutter experts are here to guide you, but we’re not on commission and will never pressure or upsell you to something that is not ideal for you.

Our simple ordering page has helpful videos and tips at every step to help you design your ideal shutters.

Once your order is placed, and verbally reviewed with one of our shutter experts, the final invoice is sent via email allowing you to review and triple check the details at your convenience. Rest easy when designing your shutter online, knowing it will always get checked over by one of our experts prior to production.
