Evoking cozy nights and rustic warmth, board and batten shutters add a classic look to your home. They're not only decorative. Our LAS shutters are available in operative and storm-rated classifications, too.
In New Orleans, many of our historic homes are outfitted with board and batten shutters. These beautiful cottage-style shutters evoke the past with their practical design and enduring elegance.
This style dates back as far as the Victorian era. "Board and batten" itself simply refers to the makeup of these shutters. The boards are the vertical planks, while the battens provide support horizontally. You can customize your look with two battens, a third center batten, or a "Z" bar for accent and style.
At LAS Shutters + Windows, we design and craft shutters that are made for the Gulf South. We craft our shutters from high-quality aluminum because we know wooden shutters quickly break down in our hot and humid climate. More durable, more attractive, and ready to protect your home. That's the LAS difference.
Benefits of our shutters
Unrivaled resistance to moisture and ultraviolet light, a must in our climate
Guaranteed to never rot, warp, or crack over time, unlike wooden shutters
Easily open and operate your shutters with multiple locking options

Your Home Is Worth It
At LAS, we craft board and batten shutters that are made for your home. Since we manage every step of design and installation, we can make shutters for large and small windows alike. Need shutters for arched or irregularly shaped windows? We can help with those, too.
Customize shutters for your needs. You can choose from the following styles:
- Decorative: These shutters are normally set in place to add style, depth, and warmth to your home. They add instant curb appeal at an affordable price.
- Fully operational: Enjoy the look of shutters with the additional benefits of blocking light, wind, and noise. With our locking options, you can also protect your home from intruders.
- Storm rated: Protect your home from Gulf South hurricanes. Our storm-rated hurricane shutters comply with (or exceed) wind and/or impact ratings for the Florida Building Code, SBCCI standards, and ASTM specifications.
Our shutters also have a powder coated finish, with multiple colors available. We go beyond black and brown, so you can embrace the lively colors of NOLA's historic homes. Find out more about our shutter colors here.
