Have you ever wondered what steps a customer goes through in order to be sitting in their home and enjoying custom made plantation shutters? It is a questions that we get asked by many individuals when they first show interest in purchasing plantation shutters for their home. It all starts with the decision to purchase – which of course we think is a wise decision… for the beauty and added value to your home, of course! Let’s get started with the consultation. One of our professionals will meet you to gain an understanding of your vision. We want to know what look you are trying to obtain and then we can begin to talk through options available to make your dreams come true! It’s during this time that your space is evaluated and measurements are taken. We look at this first initial step as the most important as our ultimate goal is for you to be completely satisfied with the final outcome and that is a direct result of the consultation step and LISTENING to our customers. Following the consultation we then make the ideas come to life and we either immediately locate the necessary materials or for more complex and detailed projects create a sketch of the design. Once the official approval is given, we begin the custom molding and design process – all to your exact measurements! That is one of the benefits of plantation shutters and what raises your home value… in one word, customization. Once all of the custom shutters have been manufactured to your specific requirements we review each piece and begin sanding and re-sanding each piece to ensure it is perfect in every way. Next, after the desired wood is smooth, we continue to either stain or paint the shutters as outlined in your order. We can almost see the finish line in our shop… now its time to share the good news with you – our customer! We will then give you a call and schedule installation. It’s as easy as that! After many decades in the business and working hard to establish a positive reputation and believe we have done just that. We strive to make sure that every part of the process is as seamless and easy for you as possible. Listening to your wants, needs, visions and dreams allows us to make those thoughts reality. We look forward to sitting down and LISTENING to you and working together in the near future. If you have any questions along the way, give us a call at Signature Shutters!
