Wallybois – Ecologically constructed shutters and doors made-to-measure in France
Window shutters are an important for home security in France and as a result French Insurance companies are insisting that your home is protected so check if there are any clauses in your policy.
Brightly painted wooden shutters are a major part of french architectural heritage across France but sadly there are many homes without them especially newbuilds but the shutters don’t only add security but help increase insulation and wind proofing. 1.25 per 25mm is the r/value for softwood so it will help to decrease your window heat loss.
Construction is ledge and braced (Z frame) or plain ledge to your supplied measurements. Our volets are supplied unpainted and constructed to allow for trimming & fitting.
Our most popular product is 26mm PINE (Volet Lame) tongue and grooved shutter board which we call our ‘standard range’. This range is in our opinion the most cost effective option.
Our second popular product is 21mm OAK tongue and grooved shutter board which we machine ourselves. This product is superior to most available and will last severe weather with only minor upkeep. The cost may be higher than the pine but will last a very long time.

Hi Marcus, Thank you for making the shutters for our home. They are beautiful. We are going to fit them in May when we are next in France and cannot wait to see them after we have painted them. Your videos by the way are really informative. Will certainly be back for the internal doors we talked about. Caroline and Georgie
