The list of important facets to consider when designing your shutter application is:
Wood Plantation Shutters - Painted
This is by far the most popular type of natural wood shutter. The finish is incredible and durable. The wood is a North American hardwood that is light, fast growing, and strong. It is the best wood for painted shutters but due to coloration variables it is not recommended for stain finishes. Because it grows straighter and quicker than most hardwoods, it is the number one choice for painting.
Wood Plantation Shutters - Stained
The wood chosen for stained shutters is also North American that has a simple grain appearance and readily accepts stains. It is all natural and mostly knot free which helps prevent warping. It is light, sturdy, and fast growing which is wonderful for our ecology. In other words it is the best choice for stained shutters.
Faux Wood Plantation Shutters
Faux wood is a composite material which combines man-made materials with wood particles to provide a finished product that is stable, strong, and attractive. Because it is heavier than the wood shutter the size limitations are a factor to be considered. This material will not warp or rot and is not affected by moisture. The material is fire retardant, insect resistant, and antimicrobial. This makes faux wood a great choice for harsh environments.
