Shenandoah Shutters Proudly Serves Portsmouth, Virginia
Portsmouth is a bustling coastal city (a port, as the name might suggest) of over 95,000, with a well-preserved history. Travel downtown and you’ll find the Olde Towne Business and Historical District, which includes a number of buildings and landmarks dating back hundreds of years. You might see the Portsmouth Courthouse, built in 1846; or the Pass House, first built in 1841 by Judge James Murdaugh. The Norfolk Naval Shipyard, in operation since 1767, is actually located in Portsmouth rather than Norfolk.
The residences in the historic district retain that historic charm, ranging from Colonial to Antebellum to Victorian styles. Here you may still find small businesses that look like residences, with a wooden sign hanging outside the porch to delineate what you’ll find within. The character of these buildings is part of what gives Portsmouth its classic atmosphere, and it makes them perfectly suited to plantation shutters.
Plantation Shutters For Homeowners Of All Styles
At Shenandoah Shutters, our most popular items are our traditional plantation shutters. They never go out of style. They’re elegant, easy to operate, and allow you to let in as much or as little sunlight as you please. We make plantation shutters as well as wood stains and cream or white painted shutters. However, if you’re looking for something a little different from the traditional style, consider our patented Softedge shutters. These shutters are modeled after the style of kitchen cabinets and bathroom cabinets popular in Europe. They have multiple panes, folding at a hinge in between the two. These are perfect for shorter windows, or windows that you only want to be partially shuttered. They’re also a great idea if you just want something that’s outside the norm.
The Quality of Careful Craftsmanship
Whether you choose our traditional plantation shutters or our patented Softedge shutters, what you’re guaranteed is expert craftsmanship from manufacturers who understand plantation shutters. All of our shutters are manufactured in Richmond, less than two hours away. We take special care with the selection of wood that we use for our shutters. For instance, many competitors will stick with basswood for their shutters, which is what we use for stained wood shutters. However, when it comes to our cream or white painted shutters, we use less porous woods like yellow poplar.
We also take customization into consideration. Not all windows come in the same shape or size, so neither do our shutters. Tell us about your windows, and we’ll customize our shutters to work for you. We even offer custom woods like cherry, oak, or mahogany.
