Composite Shutters

Composite shutters are one of the more recent types of shutters made available to the public. Basically it is made using MDF (medium density fiberboard) as a core and then coated with a vinyl paint about the thickness of a credit card. There are a few pros and cons to this type of shutter. The pros are they are usually the least expensive shutter option. The vinyl coating makes them water resistant, and being made from fiber board they will not warp.

Some of the cons are they are much heavier than a wood shutter, up to 50% more weight. They also have limited color options as they cannot be painted. And if you should accidentally chip the coating, they are difficult to repair.  Also, the vinyl coating process leaves a less than smooth finish on the shutter. You cannot see this from a distance, but upon close inspection, it becomes more obvious.
