Our signature Elite Richwood® Shutter delivers the look of wood with a lifetime of outstanding performance. They feature a high-end look for a much more accessible price. Every louver looks and feels like 100% wood, however, a durable PVC top coat seals the composite wood core for unprecedented strength. The coating is UV resistant and will not fade, peel, or chip over time. They stand up well against exposure to sunlight and heat, protecting both your home and your investment. The UV coating is also water resistant, protecting your blinds from exposure to water and moisture, which can cause warping in traditional wooden shutters.
Furthermore, Elite Richwood® Shutters have a higher density than natural wood and can provide better insulation against heat and cold. The composite also won’t shrink or dry out. While offering many features that virtually eliminate the downsides of traditional wooden shutters, the craftsmanship and quality of our Richwood® Shutters provides the same high quality look that is nearly indistinguishable from their real wooden counterparts once painted.
Elite Richwood® Shutters are defined by their classic profiles in a range of three white tints. Possibilities are abound with two louver sizes (2½” and 3 ½”), six different panel configurations, and 6 distinct frame styles (see below). We also offer an impressive selection of bi-fold or bypass track systems, perfect for large windows, patio doors, closets, or room dividers, which can allow you to create several multifunctional areas in one large space. They offer the perfect balance to cover larger windows and still provide options of light control, privacy and style.
Elite Richwood® Shutters are built with high-quality hardware for ease of use and are able to maintain their integrity while opening and closing over time. They come in a variety of colours, which allows for a customizable look to suit your home and style. Offering clean lines that suit a modern and minimalist taste very well, our Richwood® Shutters are a very popular option for a window treatment that leaves an impression of luxury and sophistication.
