Naval Norfolk, Virginia
Shenandoah Shutters Proudly Serves Norfolk, Virginia
First settled in 1682, Norfolk, Virginia is famous as the home of the largest naval base in the world, Naval Station Norfolk, and the natural harbor at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay. With a population of nearly 245,000, it’s also the second most populous city in Virginia. It’s one of the most historic cities in the country with relics from as early as the Civil War, such as the cannonball still lodged into the wall of Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church, fired by loyalist Lord Dunmore’s troops during the Revolutionary War.
Today, Norfolk is filled with charming architecture that reflects various periods of Norfolk’s history and influences from around the world. It’s also a cultured, artistic city, home to the Chrysler Museum of Art, the Virginia Opera, and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. It has beautiful beaches and botanical gardens and parks where you can relax, as well as a bustling community of local businesses. A day in Norfolk might involve getting food from one of the local food trucks or taking the family to the Virginia Zoo to see the tigers or bears. Others might enjoy golfing or simply enjoying the warm climate from their own neighborhood. Residents of Norfolk are proud to call it home, and they take pride in their homes, too.
Classic Shutters For Your Classic Home
In Norfolk, you’ll find a variety of residential architectural styles, from colonial to Victorian and even Queen Anne style homes with the classic wraparound porch. Norfolk homes have a characteristically classy style, and the trimmings should have the same level of sophistication. At Shenandoah Shutters, we offer classic plantation style shutters that make a grand statement, much like many of the homes in Norfolk. These styles offer not only style, but versatility. Open them easily on a sunny day when you want the light to stream in, or close them to avoid a harsh glare.
But one style does not work for everyone. What if your stylistic preferences are a little more modern? Shenandoah Shutters has you covered again. We offer our patented Softedge shutters, using a style that’s often used for kitchen cupboards to open and close easily. These have that plantation shutter charm while also suiting sleeker, more contemporary styles of homes. They can also add a nice, updated contrast to a more classic style home, while traditional shutters can add a touch of elegance to something more modern. The choice is yours.
Why Shenandoah Shutters?
Why should you choose Shenandoah Shutters as your source for traditional and Softedge plantation shutters? Well, for one thing, Softedge shutters are entirely unique to us. They’re patented and can only be found here. But ultimately it comes down to craftsmanship you can trust from a plantation shutter manufacturer who knows the area.
Shenandoah Shutters are produced in Richmond, and wooden plantation shutters are all we do. That means we know the best woods to use to get the highest quality shutters. Many shutter companies will use basswood by default, but that’s not always the right choice. Basswood is great when it comes to bringing out the color of the shutters, which is why we use it for stained shutters. For our white or cream shutters, we use the less porous yellow poplar, so the color isn’t lost. We even make custom shutters based on wood of your choice.
More than just the design and manufacturing of our shutters, our installation crew knows all the ins and outs of installing plantation shutters so they fit your windows perfectly and last for years. You can trust Shenandoah Shutters with your plantation shutters because we know plantation shutters back to front, and not least of all, because we know Norfolk.
