Superior construction, faithfully executed!
In fact, shutters distributed by Premier Shutters of New England are made exactly like wood shutters, from individual inset raised panels, individually inset louvers, and interlocked corner joinery, varied only to accommodate the type of materials used in their construction. Additionally, every pair of shutters (individual shutters also available) come accurately measured and custom fit to the requirements of your home.
Lasting finish in the color of your choice! Shutters distributed by Premier of New England are finished completely painted utilizing either a two-part urethane paint developed by Sherwin Williams® Automotive Finishes for the over-the-road trucking industry. These paints are designed to take the abuse of road salt, sand and chemicals, are available in virtually any color you choose, with any finish from flat to semi-gloss, and are specially formatted to avoid heat absorbtion in the darker colors . We have no standard selection of colors, so your choices are limited only by your imagination. We have already matched a collection of over 100 colors matched to the popular colors from leading paint manufacturers in both America and Europe; in any case, we will match to whatever color you require with no premium up-charge."
Paint tested to last for decades! So strong are our painted finishes that they've withstood 350 hour salt fog tests, 36 month sun tests for gloss retention and color fade South Florida conditions, and subjected to direct 24-hour applications of 10% solutions of sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, and ammonium hydroxide. In every case, our finish has proved completely durable in terms of color and finish. Because our finish bonds directly to the shutter substrate, every shutter is warranted against lifting, peeling, flaking or cracking for 10 years … far longer than any standard housepaint warranty.
