Board And Batten Shutters

Note on Closed Board and Batten Shutters: Vertical Boards are compressed together. Polyurethane glue is then applied to the back of the batts. Batts are attached with a minimum of three screws per board at the batt. Screws are inserted from the back so as not to show. Result is a minimum of 18 screws per panel for long life. Battens are placed 7″ from the top and bottom of the shutters, or 5″ if the shutter is a small size. A third batten is recommended for wood shutters taller than 51″. We pre-prime all board and batten shutters as a FREE option. This allows for the protection of all the wood surface. We do not prime, if you request the stain-grade finish.

This simplest of shutter styles also happens to be one of the most versatile. You’ll find board-and-batten variations cheering up window openings on house styles from stone Colonials to stuccoed farmhouses to the shingled cottage pictured here. What’s more, compared with louvered and paneled designs, board-and-batten assemblies are easy to make. All you need to build your own is some durable wood—western red cedar is an ideal choice—as well as a few hours at a workbench. To personalize them, use a jigsaw to create a decorative cutout. If you’d prefer to buy something already built, your choices expand to include inexpensive nonworking foam or vinyl versions that fasten to the siding, and custom wood or composite shutters sturdy enough to swing on hinges and bar the elements. Whichever way you go, your newly adorned windows will be all the more charming for your efforts. Shown: Atlantic Premium Shutters Classic Collection, Standard Board and Batten in wood composite.
