Plantation Shutter Custom Colors
Custom stained and painted plantation shutters are available in unlimited colors outside the range of our standard selections.
Custom Paint Colors ($50 One Time Per Color)
Specify the current paint color code and name from any one of the following manufacturers:
We then mix the paint to match a specified color. We do not match dark paint colors.
Paints not within the standard portfolio of the above manufacturers requires a physical sample to match. Mail a smooth, dried unreturnable sample (minimum size 3” x 3”) to the address below. This process requires $100 in addition to the custom color charge.
Custom Stain Colors ($100 One Time Per Color)
Stain finishes outside of our 9 standard colors can be achieved by sending a 3" x 3" sample to the address below. We will then match the color and send you a sample for your approval before finishing. Stain samples with heavy grain (oak, walnut, etc.) are often very difficult to match. If possible, provide sample on a light grain wood.
Additional time may be required for production of difficult custom colors.
