We are able to build both interior shutters and exterior shutters to your specifications should you need specific stile and rail dimension.

Center Stiles

Both Kestrel interior shutters and exterior shutters can be made with one or more center stiles. On window shutters over 30" wide we recommend a center stile.

Custom Rail Location

We offer several frame layouts with the center rail (lock rail) at different locations. We can place the rail at most any location or remove it entirely.

Arch Top Window Shutters

All of our window shutters are available with arched tops. We build half round, quarter round, eyebrow and gothic as well as triangular.

Overlap Rabbeting

We offer both a square overlap as well as a beaded overlap rabbet. Exterior shutters will have the bead on the same stile as the overlap rabbet. Interior shutters will have the bead on the same stile as the overlap rabbet as well as the stile without the overlap rabbet. Custom rabbets and beading are also available.

Horns

We can provide horns on the bottom of your shutters to any custom size. Shutter horns are most often found in original shutters of the Northeastern US states.

Exterior Shutter Hardware

Complete the look of your Kestrel Shutters with the widest range of shutter hardware available anywhere. We offer strap hinges, mortised hinges, shutter dogs, ring pulls and slide bolts

Sill Bevel
