Before You Invest in Exterior Shutters...

Before you invest in exterior shutters know the company

Our Company

Advantage Shutters and Closets, a division of Advantage Building Components, LLC, has been custom building exterior shutters since 1993. Our shutters are technically correct and hand crafted to give them the historically correct look that will enhance the look of your home. Advantage Shutters have been used and approved for use in all historical areas where application has been made in Middle Tennessee. In production, many different materials have been used to build our shutters. However, solid Western Red Cedar, known for its durability and resistance to decay, has been our standard for years. Other materials we have used for our exterior shutters, at our customers’ request, are Mahogany, Spanish Cedar, Cypress, Redwood and Knotty Pine. In addition to the custom woods we use, we are now offering a composite shutter that will not rot or decay over time and will give you the look of a wood shutter at a better price point.

If you live in the Middle Tennessee area we offer complete turn key service to our customers.

The following are the services available to our custom exterior shutters customers:

  • A complimentary appointment with our prospective customer to measure for exterior shutters, discuss options and answer any questions the homeowner may have.
  • Our local craftsmen will custom build your shutters from your choice of materials at our factory in LaVergne.
  • A custom finish can be provided at our factory for your shutters with your choice of color or stain.
  • Custom hardware of your choice is available for your custom shutters.
  • Custom installation of your shutters, by our trained employees, is available with your choice of hardware to hang the shutter.

There are several items that should be considered before you invest in shutters in order to make sure you are getting what you want.
