Create an Iconic Craftsman Look — Pair Shaker Shutters with Craftsman Crossheads

With the addition of the Shaker Shutters — available January 2, 2018 — Fypon will now provide homeowners and builders with more options to create a custom Craftsman-style home without the cost, maintenance and installation headache of traditional wood products.

When paired with Fypon’s recently released Craftsman Crossheads, the new two-panel shutters complement the historical characteristics of a Craftsman-style home. The Shaker Shutters feature a 2-panel recessed style that uses stile and rail construction to reflect the distinctive characteristics of shaker-inspired woodworking.

The Craftsman Crossheads come in two designs—cove and step. The cove’s 9-inch height captures the look of a true wood built-up crosshead with cove and top trim, and the Arts & Craft detail is accentuated with optional end caps which reflect a modern eclectic architecture. The step crosshead’s simplistic design emphasizes the elements of the early Craftsman-style home, which focused on innovative and skilled craftsmanship detail. The step design consists of a breast-board layered with two molding pieces; the smaller emulating a step to a larger top trim piece.

Fypon’s low-maintenance polyurethane products won’t warp, crack or split, and are impervious to moisture, making them perfect for exterior applications. The shutters and crossheads arrive on site primed and ready to paint, with no prep work required.
