Danville Plantation Shutter Installation by Window-ology

If you haven't noticed, shutters are a popular product at Window-ology. They're also having a moment in California in general...what can we say? Californians are liking the clean lines and a sleek feel.


When it comes to shutters, the good thing is that they will accommodate pretty much any type of window. Skinny, arched, extremely wide, circular...whatever the shape, we can probably order a shutter that will fit.


We installed these Norman Window Fashions arched composite wood shutters at a home in Danville. Three went into bedrooms, and one (rectangular; the client wanted to keep the arch exposed) in the bathroom. When clients want shutters, we always recommend plantation shutters over real wood in places like the bathroom, kitchen, and other humid areas of your home. Real wood is prone to warping, but composite shutters will hold up perfectly. Save the real wood for highly-visible rooms, like the living or family room.

Installers Ed and Matt break down styrofoam, unpackaged shutters, and unload the Window-ology van in preparation for a shutter installation in Danville.

Matt and Ed take a shutter frame back outside to modify it before installing.
Ed saws off part of the shutter frame so that it will fit the bathroom tile where it is being installed. Sawdust flies in the air.
Window-ology installers always tidy up before they go. Matt vacuums the windowsill of debris.
