The shutters we specify complement our architecture very nicely
Marieanne Khoury-Vogt, Town Architect at Alys Beach, Fla., a luxury-lifestyle community
“The shutters we specify, Atlantic Premium Shutters, complement our architecture very nicely. The functionality and architectural correctness of the shutters is extremely key, and their design is an integral part of the expression of our Bermuda-inspired design.”
There was a maintenance-free alternative out there with Atlantic shutters
Brad Crowell, former building committee chair of the c.1838 Dennis Union Church sanctuary, Dennis, Mass.
“Beyond the Community Preservation Act requirements, we’re also in a local historic district, so all the changes had to go through a committee. I was so excited about this product, that I actually brought a sample because I wanted them to see it. Too frequently, people say they can’t afford the maintenance of a real wood shutter. The committee is sensitive to cost so they often allow more affordable shutter solutions, but these don’t bring the historical character. I wanted to let them know there was a maintenance-free alternative out there with Atlantic shutters.”
Customized shutters from Atlantic only take about a couple weeks to produce.

“Customized shutters from Atlantic only take about a couple weeks to produce. With something like Spanish cedar shutters, the turnaround could be several times as long. And in our climate where you get a lot of moisture, especially in summer, that’s not good for real wood that needs to breathe. For something like closing shutters where you don’t have a lot of room for error, if those were to expand or buckle in any way or stay untrue, the wood could easily warp. Then we’d have a lot of callbacks and we’d be out trying to fix them.”
