Pittsburgh, PA (PressExposure) December 10, 2009 -- Estate Millwork, a wooden shutter manufacturing company in Southwestern PA is offering a wide selection of shutters, hinges, and accessories for the autumn construction season.
Many do-it-yourself homebuilders, contractors, and home remodeling consultants, buoyed by the prospect of warmer Northeastern fall and winter weather thanks to the El Nino effect, will extend the building season past Labor Day. Estate Millwork offers many stylish wood exterior shutter options for these building aficionados; and most wood shutters on sale can be customized to suit many different home exteriors.
"I'd encourage any homebuilder or contractor to take a look at our wooden shutter selection first" says Estate Millwork principal Dave Thomas. "We use all-natural hardwood in our exterior shutters, we assemble them by hand, and we create them with the intent that they'll be on the house for decades."
Big-box stores are a popular destination for handymen - and while their selections of tools and construction equipment often can't be beat, they're not exactly prime destinations for custom exterior shutters.
"Many stores are selling utility grade shutters," says Thomas. "That's fine if you're on a budget, that's absolutely fine if you need a fast job, or you only want that job to last a year or two. But if you're remodeling your own home - and especially, if you're in the business of remodeling other people's homes, a quality product will provide more satisfaction over the long run."
Wooden shutters are preferable for home remodeling or new construction jobs, says Thomas. They outlast vinyl or composite shutters, and they offer better protection against the elements. "Several years into your construction job, you'll see a significant return on your investment if you've purchase real wood shutters" adds Thomas.
Estate Millwork now offers multiple variations on wooden shutter classics, including panel shutters, louvered shutters, and its famous top-hinged Bahama shutters. The company has forayed into interior decorating markets, too; it now sells custom wood doors on spec, custom all-wood cabinet doors and period reproduction hinges.
Thomas strives to ensure that the company's customer service is superb. "We've created our company to offer our customers the greatest number of choices. It's now possible to customize your exterior shutters on our Web site - where we've laid out finishing options, customization options, custom hinges, and more."
"But if you need that human touch, we also have CSR guys on hand, and they're always ready to answer any questions to help you get the job done most efficiently," Thomas adds.
Estate Millwork is a great destination for green builders, too. All exterior shutters are crafted from sustainable-harvest hardwoods. The company practices a green business philosophy every day, too. By enforcing strict temperature controls at the manufacturing plant, and by recycling scraps in other wooden shutter projects or burning them for fuel, Estate Millwork is able to keep total manufacturing costs down.
In a tight economy, what builder doesn't love that?
