How Long Will It Take To Get Shutters in Colorado Springs? The entire plantation shutter process, from your in-home consultation to putting your shutters in, will take approximately 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 your shutters, assemble your brand-new shutters manually, and ship them to you prior to installation. Wood shutters will usually take longer because of the staining and finishing process.It will take a little time, but it’s a wait that’s definitely worth it.
