POMA Decorative Colonial Shutter is manufactured of 6063-T6 Architectural grade aluminum, the same material we use for our hurricane protection shutters. The shutters are painted using an electrostatic powder coat process in which the paint is baked on at 350 degrees assuring a smooth long lasting finish. This shutter looks like a traditional wooden colonial but is much more durable. Aluminum won’t rust, warp, or deteriorate and will last for years. The shutter installs just like a wooden shutter using hardware available at The Home Depot. It comes with all hinges and hold-backs to keep it in position on you home. When closed to cover your window it is held in place with flutter bars also provided. Each set of shutters come complete except for the screws or Tapcons to attach it to your home.
