They say that the most expensive thing you will ever buy is something that you will have to replace. Luckily, Heritance® Hardwood Shutters are made with quality construction and craftsmanship. In fact, the Truemill® dovetail construction used to create these shutters is one of the most structurally sound methods for holding panels together on the market. With this method, the materials in our shutters are tightly locked. Competitors who offer shutters use alternative methods, such as standard dowel construction, which instead relies on the glue. This often results in shutters that last a few years before losing their shape. On the flip side, when you choose Hunter Douglas shutters, you are choosing an investment that will look stunning year after year. The available Integra™ Finish is applied to each slat in a multi-coat process also creates high luster and long-lasting durability, so the shutters require minimal care.
