Wood is a natural material and if not properly maintained, will deteriorate and rot. 

Wood shutters must be primed and painted on ALL sides with a minimum of 2 coats of paint.

Wood shutters should not be installed flush to a surface.  If you are not using shutter hinges then install the shutter with an 1/8" gap between the wall and the shutter to allow air to circulate.

Measuring For Shutters

Always measure in inches

A — First, measure the width of the opening between casings on the outside of your window. Take that measurement and divide by two. This will be the width of the shutter you will need.

B — Next, measure the height from the top of the sill to the header casing. Specify this as the height of your shutter.
