Varying Degrees of Authenticity In Historic Matching Of Exterior Shutters Southern Shutter Company
Preservation of our historical buildings is a one way street. Once they are demolished there is no bringing them back. In the remodeling or maintenance of these structures manufactures are often asked to replicate existing building components in order to preserve the buildings integrity. Exterior shutters are an integral part of the exterior facade of most historical buildings and are one of the first things noticed when looking at the building. This course is designed to cover the varying degrees of historical matching of shutters dictated by Historical Society Bylaws, Architects, Designers and Property Owners through an understanding of the Anatomy of a Shutter, Types of Shutter Styles and Construction Materials, Varying Degrees of Shutter Matching and finally Hinging of Shutters. An understanding of these objectives will give the Architect the ability to better work with their clients in meeting their design goals while staying in their budget. 1 HSW/LU
