BASS WOOD SHUTTERS
MADE IN USA
Bass wood shutters are built from the highest quality material.
Wood is the most preferable material for building shutters, and not all woods are made alike. Basswood is a superior wood because it is among the straightest of hard woods with fine uniform texture.n form and function, physics of sound and design aesthetics.
There are no standard windows. A proper custom shutter unit needs to be built for each individual window opening to the 1/16 inch. Any more will result in possible unnecessary gaps in the shutter unit. Do not assume that because two or more windows look the same.
Measurements should be done by a professional from our team in order to assure the customer gets the right shutters sizes for each window.
