Shutters Online – 15 Years
This year Horizon Shutters celebrates 15 years of selling solid wood window shutters online. In 1997, Horizon Shutters became the first of its kind to sell custom made interior shutters direct online to homeowners across the United States. In fact, the business is the same age as Google, seven years older than Facebook, and nine years older than Twitter.
Traditional methods require a salesperson to visit the home, take measurements, and return at a later date to install the shutters. In founding Horizon Shutters we realized that homeowners, with a little instruction, can easily measure for and install shutters without the inconvenience of multiple in-home visits. This sales model also significantly reduces the overall price, eliminating costs for transportation, equipment, time, and labor.
Inspired by the potential of the internet, Jack and Brian Wright (a father-son team) sought an alternative avenue for homeowners to order and receive custom made window shutters. Building on our combined knowledge and experience measuring for, building, finishing, and installing interior shutters, we launched Horizon Shutters.
The website, which has evolved over the years with technology and advances in programming, is designed for a sensational visitor experience. Each visitor can easily find the information desired while discovering interactive features along the way. After a customer submits window measurements for an order, a shutter professional makes all of the necessary deductions and allowances for fit. The custom wood shutters are then built to specifications and shipped ready to install.
Horizon Shutters remains the leading source for traditional and plantation shutters online. We have accumulated satisfied customers in over 10,000 homes and businesses across the world. Many customers return to purchase indoor shutters for additional rooms, house additions, vacation homes, or new properties. Hundreds of rave shutter reviews are posted for future customers to view in lieu of direct references.
The primary goal has remained constant since our inception: Provide the absolute best quality window shutters at the lowest possible cost with knowledgeable, friendly customer service. Please visit the website today, and shop for shutters online in the comfort of your own home.
