How Long Will It Take To Get Shutters in Fort Myers? The whole plantation shutter process, from your initial consultation to installing the shutters, will take around four to six weeks. The reason it takes this long is because we strive to build shutters that are perfectly customized to every facet of your windows. Doing that requires us to take exact measurements, make use of advanced software to design your shutters, assemble your custom shutters manually, and deliver them to you prior to installation. Wood shutters tend to take longer because of the staining and finishing process.It does take some time, but it’s definitely worth the wait.
