Cedar Board and Batten Shutters




Whether you are looking for a classic look or a contemporary feel, cedar board and batten shutters will fit the bill. They are made from reclaimed lumber, and are a beautiful addition to any home. The tenons and mortise are machined parts that fit together to make the shutters. Once installed, these components are secured into place with a hardwood dowel.

Louver shutters

The Louver shutters are a great way to accentuate the look of your cedar board and batten shutters. The louvers are usually 2 1/2 inches in size and are custom-made to fit your windows. They also add a rustic look to your home. Louver shutters are available in Pine, Redwood, and Cedar.

Louver shutters are typically available in six different slat widths and are available in a variety of colors and styles. These shutters can also be made to meet a variety of custom specifications. For example, you can have custom-made shutter louvers made with a design that is reminiscent of European wooden shutters.

Raised panel shutters

Raised panel cedar board and batten window shutters are made from wood and are the ideal choice for traditional homes. They are a one-piece design and are easy to maintain. Additionally, they will last much longer than the majority of other wood shutters. Beltway Builders can help you select the style of shutter that will work best for your home.

Raised panel cedar board and batten windows are available with a variety of features. For example, shutters with a ship lap design are made with a decorative bead on one side and a ship lap design on the other. These shutters overlap by about 3/8″ when closed.

Barn style z-pattern shutters

Barn style z-pattern shutters are a popular choice for homes with arched windows. They feature a unique “Z” shape that’s typically located on the left side of the window. They are available in two basic types: forward-facing and reverse-facing. The arch-top exterior shutter features an arched top, and requires a springline measurement to properly reflect the window’s shape. The resulting shutter has a lower top batten than a standard rectangular shutter.

Barn style z-pattern shutters are often available with sliding doors. This style allows for sliding shutters to fit in rooms with limited space. They can be purchased in different colors and finishes. Barn-style z-pattern shutters are made from wood or metal.

Western red Cedar

Western red Cedar board and batten shutters are made of natural decay-resistant wood. They are strong, straight, and are lightweight. This makes them perfect for window shutters and window treatment projects. For added protection, these shutters can be customized with a range of finish options.

Unlike many other shutter styles, board and batten shutters are simple to construct. They are suitable for most house styles. And unlike paneled or louvered shutters, board-and-batten shutters can be custom designed. They can also be personalized by having a jisaw cutout.


Board and batten shutters are popular, and can be found in some of America’s most beautiful homes. They are typically wider than comparable products and can be made with two different profiles: horizontal and vertical. When building shutters, you must ensure that you cut the boards on a miter saw to the correct width. Once you have your boards cut, you will need to lay the battens in between them. These battens should be cut diagonally, just shy of the width of the shutter boards.

The process used to make these shutters is a lengthy one. The shutter boards are hand-selected and hand-crafted by experienced craftsmen. They are then assembled and finished, ready for years of service.


A classic shutter style, board and batten shutters replicate the craftsmanship of old-world homes with a rustic charm.
