DeVenco Builds Shutters To Last a Lifetime In 4 To 8 Weeks Time

The plantation shutters you buy today will be enjoyed by the next generation, we guarantee it.

  • Solid wood components- There are no finger jointed or “glued up parts” all components are solid wood custom milled to exacting specifications in our factory. There are no ready made parts, imported parts or stock fabricated parts. And never faux wood.
  • Mortise and dowel construction. DeVenco shutters are not screwed together, stapled or pinned together. We use old fashioned cabinetmaker joinery. This assures the shutter will never fall out of square at the joints under its own weight.
  • Nylon rotation pins. Louver operation is smooth and effortless, even after being refinished numerous times.
  • Full size one inch by two inch beaded stiles assure proportional design aesthetically as well as structural integrity.
  • 2 ½ inch louvers spaced at two inches on center provide excellent closure and actual room darkening in daylight.
  • Lock rails are standard at no extra charge and provide structural support and absolute stability within a panel while allowing upper louvers to function separately from lower louvers.
  • Mortising for hanging hinges is standard allowing a custom fit within the window jamb.
  • Rabbetted stiles provide total privacy and just one more custom feature
  • Hardware available in brass or nickel finish.

DeVenco Plantation Shutters Are Constructed Of The Finest Material Available.


These Honduras Mahogany plantation shutters are installed in a mahogany
library with arched windows. Note the louvers extend into the arch.
All wood is milled by us in our shop. There are no prefab or stock sized parts. All work is done in our shop by skilled craftsmen to the highest standards in the industry today.

The components for each shutter are cut by hand, piece by piece the old fashioned way, and then assembled by hand using old world cabinetmaker construction techniques.

After assembly each shutter is sanded and buffed by hand and prepared for finishing. All shutters receive a superlative finish in the color specified by you, again applied by hand. The result is an automotive quality finish that will be easy to maintain and which should last for many years. In fact…. Any DeVenco shutter that requires refinishing before the room needs repainting will be refinished by DeVenco at no charge to you. We have offered this guarantee for many years.

After three days in the drying chamber, and the finish has adequately cured, hardware is carefully set on each shutter, and they are packed like Waterford crystal for shipping.

When your DeVenco shutters arrive they are ready to install, no assembly required. Each hanging hinge is adjustable to allow you to make fine adjustments in the installation in order to align each panel with its mate. Tools required for installation are: screw gun with Phillips and square drives, 1/8” drill bit, 1/8”shim and one cup of coffee for each window. Our staff is available for support Monday - Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM EST. Do not hesitate to call.
