Over the years we have made shutters and doors for a variety of projects. Some were the exact matching of historic originals. Others were unique designs that reflected the personalities of our clients. One common factor was that they all required products of the highest quality...which is what lead them to choose Kestrel.

Our shutters and doors can be found on six of the seven continents as well as numerous ships. Here is a partial listing of projects that we are honored to have helped contribute towards.
Arched exterior shutters

I want you to know how pleased I am with the shutters you made for us. They are as wonderful as I hoped they would be. I like to think that we have improved our house, without detracting from the lovely 1920’s Georgian brick structure. Filling in the arches with your shutters made that possible.

European Board & Batten shutters with breadboard top and diamond cutouts - Chièvres, Belgium

This old place was not so comfy 15 years ago, it was a deserted stable and chickens were roosting in the hay loft. It was so run down there were gaping holes in the roof and you could look up and see the sky from the inside. The shutters are the last project and it will be restored to its original condition, thanks to you folks. You don't know how many people in town ask about your shutters, and even more astonished that they were made in the good old USA.

I finished the installation of the custom sized doors that Kestrel made for me and they look absolutely great. It really transformed the area and makes it looks tremendously better. I am also glad that I went with the heavier track hardware. The doors open and close very smoothly.

Everyone who sees our shutters asks where we had them made. We begin by telling them that we researched all the shutter companies we could find that use cedar or cypress as the wood and that attached the louvers to the control bar with brass screw eyelets. This made a very short list. We then turned to price and a feeling for the company’s interest in their product and in our home. How could we choose anyone but Kestrel? We hope the pleasure and pride we feel in your work will encourage many other Galveston residents to contact Kestrel.    Galveston, TX
The doors arrived on schedule and I am very happy with the quality of the work and the support from the sales staff. Thanks very much!    NJ

We really loved the doors we ordered from your company last fall. The designs and quality are just GREAT. We like your doors so much we want to use them in a number of different rooms.    Greensboro, NC
I am very pleased with your shutters and a couple of my neighbors even noticed them and how nice and well built they were. I almost hated to paint them as the pleasant cedar smell greeted me each morning as I walked into the garage. It’s a job well done and I will certainly call you or refer you to my neighbors if I am in need of doors or windows.    Broomall, PA
We used the louvered doors to access a closet area containing a copier-collator-fax for our Church Rectory Office. We found them to be of exceptional quality and excellent finish. I intend to use and refer your company in the future and would like to thank you personally for the wonderful job you did with our order.    Bethesda, MD
