For Estate Millwork, going green is the only way to provide homeowners with quality exterior shutters.

In a downturn, as many homeowners watch the values of their mortgages plummet, exterior shutters can be a sound and green home-improvement investment. But inventive ways of saving money existed long before this century.

Early American pioneers prepared their log cabin homes for hard times by sealing the cracks between timbers with mud and battening their windows with wooden shutters. Their wisdom helped them preserve precious heating fuels in the winter -- and that wisdom is just as applicable today.

Estate Millwork’s craftsmen use time-honored, labor-intensive techniques to shape hand-selected, top-grade wood into custom shutters. The result is high-quality exterior shutters (http://www.estatemillwork.com) with no gaps or cracks to allow summer's heat or winter's blustery cold into the home.

During the Great Depression, many people might have thrown their worthless stock certificates out of their gilded window shutters -- but today's homeowners are much less cavalier about their energy bills. Made-to-order exterior shutters guarantee homeowners a wide selection of custom, precision-crafted energy control devices.

On a nice, spring day, homeowners can open their wood shutters to let cool bursts of fresh air enter their homes. If it's raining, exterior shutters with adjustable louvers allow homeowners to leave their windows open while still enjoying a refreshing breeze.

On a sunny July afternoon, panel shutters can keep the outside glare at bay, ensuring a cool, relaxing indoors. Even in winter, a few pairs of precision-fitted exterior shutters provide energy savings by keeping hot air in and cold air out.

Homeowners are not the only ones keeping a watchful eye on the environment in these troubled times. At Estate Millwork’s corporate headquarters, located near one of the greenest cities in the country -- Pittsburgh, Pa. -- company principal Jim Jackson says workers will expand efforts to create window shutters in an environmentally friendly fashion.

The plant has been able to cut significant costs through recycling initiatives and energy conservation, and serves as a model for other businesses in this recession.
