3-1/2″ Louver Shutter Plan Wizard

                    The calculators will determine material cut list and create an assembly 
                     plan for your own custom plantation shutters.  As a rule of thumb, deduct 
                     1/8" from each panel joint; hinges, panel joints, top & bottom (2 panel shutter 
                    have a 1/4" overlap) so use the full measurement for width and deduct 1/4" for height.

                                   Measure for Clearance 

  • Measure inside width in 3 places – top, middle, bottom. Measure inside height in 3 places – left, middle, right
  • Use the smallest actual opening measurements
  • Check for square by measuring diagonally – A & B
  • Z Frame or Trim Frame units will accommodate most out-of-square in drywall openings
  • If considering Mounting Strips or hinges only, an inside mount is not feasible if diagonal measurements are not within 1/8th inch. Rather, select the L Frame or go to an outside mount.

Why Our Custom Shutters?

Add classic beauty and value to your home or office with our custom basswood shutters.
Our custom shutters provide value, savings on energy cost and add an extra layer of
protection from the outdoor elements while acting as a sound barrier. Our shutters
compliment most architectural designs.
Serving Spring, The Woodlands, Tomball, Conroe and Houston metro area.

Eco-friendly 
​The vast majority of wood used for most wood shutters is basswood 
and poplar. The reasons for their dominance in the wood window 
coverings industry is their stability and light weight. Besides 
cotton, wood is the only renewable resource used in the window 
covering industry. Plastics and synthetic fibers are all 
petroleum based. Once all the petroleum and minerals used up, 
there won't be any more. Contrast this scenario with wood. Not only 
are there more wood fibers growing every day, there's more wood 
fibers growing even after extracting the amount harvested.

Our Products
Our custom shutters offer one of the best products in the industry
with exceptional services and fair pricing. Even better, we bring the 
showroom to you and for our contractors either at your office or to 
the job site. For the architects, we can meet with you during the 
design phase to coordinate our product with your designs and schedules.
We offer personalized service, complimentary consultation, free 
measuring and free quotes. You will be surprised at how 
affordable custom wood shutters are for your projects. 

Beautiful, Natural Wood
We start with beautiful, natural basswood and carefully assemble 
it into your custom shutters that will truly reflect the beauty 
of your homes or businesses. Using some of the most advanced 
methods available, we control every stage of production. Your 
shutters are being crafted to your specifications.

The Best Product at The Best Price
​​We offer our quality wood plantation shutters at direct prices 
with fabrication here in Houston, TX . We are able to do custom 
manufacturing with very, specific details that importers or out 
of town companies cannot match. Our low overhead means 
savings $$$$ for you.

Our Personalized Service Includes A Complementary Consultation

Quality product and even better service. I screwed-up my last order and Errol made it right at NO ADDITIONAL COST to me. Does not get any better than that !!!

The shutter project is done. Four rooms and 10 total shutters.The completed project is amazing. The transformation from shades to shutters gives me countless lighting possibilities which creates multiple moods. The products sent were flawless which makes cutting to window size, painting, glue up, assembly and then installation helpful. Errol is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the build.
Without his expertise the build would have taken months. The end jig for the pins and control arm is a must. I also built 4 more jigs to make the process faster. Thanks again Errol.

If your interested in a DIY plantation shutter project and your unsure of the design, materials and techniques required, try this company. I have received and built three shutters systems. Each time I have been very pleased with the materials, guidance and customer service. Their sales rep., Errol, is always available, quick to respond and great at explaining the basics and details. I plan to build more shutters and my choice will be CustomShuttersGuru

Again Thanks,

I have now received my first order and I am very pleased. First of all, their customer service is outstanding. Errol was most helpful in guiding me to make sure I was selecting the right product for my project. My order was shipped on time and arrived in great condition. Each inner pack was clearly marked and labeled making it easy to check in and to keep all components organized. I am also very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the shutter components. I am very pleased and will definitely be doing more business with them in the near future.

Fantastic Customer service, am working on large shutter repair project for my niece. Errol couldn’t have been more helpful and his knowledge of his product has been instrumental in making sure we have the right items and insights to tackle this project. The Shutter Guru, is doing business the way it should be done 5 Stars *****

“I welcome the opportunity to endorse your products and services.  I ordered plantation shutter materials from you to construct 4 plantation shutters. The materials arrived very promptly and were just what I wanted.  There was, however, several of the pieces that were damaged during the shipping process.  I notified you of this and with a very short turn around time you sent me the needed replacement pieces at no additional cost.

Loved the pre-primed basswood.  Much easier than doing my own priming.  The wood quality was overall very good without defects.”

“At the beginning of the year my Wife and I decided we would purchase wooden shutters for our home but were quickly put off by the cost.

I was looking on line one day and stumbled across Custom shutters . guru their website had a DIY section and explained how you could build your own shutters using just a few basic tools and a chop saw .

Having checked on pricing it soon became clear that my savings would be phenomenal making wooden shutters myself.

On placing  my first order the person  at CustomShutters Errol pointed out  a couple of parts that I ordered would be wasteful and would add more expense to my project ,it became clear that I was dealing with a well meaning and honest business ,very refreshing ,as proof of this I had a  faulty component I was instantly credited ,delivery is super quick and excellent communication as and when I would receive my deliveries .

Their Website gives you building plans cutting lists etc

I am coming to the end of my project and my house looks amazing as well as putting value on my home .

This is a company that deserves to do very well and if they treat customers the way they have treated me they will , Thank you Errol Barrois Custom Shutters. Guru.”

Robert A., Estero, FL

“I PURCHASED ALL MY COMPONENTS FROM ERROL, 22 PANELS IN ALL. THEY WERE EASIER THAN I THOUGHT TO BUILD THEM, ALL MATERIALS WERE TOP QUALITY. ONLY ONCE DID I RECEIVE A STILE THAT WAS DEFECTIVE. NOT A PROBLEM, IT WAS RETURNED SHIPPING PAID FOR AND A REPLACEMENT WAS SENT ALMOST BEFORE I RETURNED MINE. VERY HONEST AND DEPENDABLE COMPANY AND I WOULD STAND BY THEM AND ALSO REFER THEM TO OTHERS AS WELL…..”
