Now, if you are set on buying wood, don't shop price! US Polymer Wood Shutters in our opinion are the only wood product worth having and selling. Over the years we have tried to compete on price with bottom dollar wood. While a cheap blind might warp a little, fade a little, or have too many support ladders, a cheap wood shutter is the worst product to buy. Years ago I've had experience with inexpensive wood shutters, no matter how little you pay it is not worth the mess you end up with when all the paint cracks in a year. US Polymer Shutters are all furniture quality and are sealed on the ends keeping moisture away and giving you a wood product that will last for years.
