How Long Does It Take To Get Shutters in Destin? The entire plantation shutter process, from your starting consultation to installation, usually takes around four to six weeks. The process takes this long because our goal is to build shutters that are completely customized to your windows. Doing that requires us to take exact measurements, utilize advanced software to design them, assemble your brand-new shutters by hand, and ship them to your home for installation. Real wood shutters typically take longer than faux wood due to the extra steps needed to stain and treat the wood.It does take a little time, but it’s an investment that’s well worth it.
