How Long Will It Take To Get Shutters in Jacksonville? The entire plantation shutter process, from your in-home consultation to installation, will take about four to six weeks. The reason it takes this long is because our goal is to build 100% custom shutters for your windows. Doing that requires us to take precise measurements, utilize sophisticated software to design your shutters, assemble your brand-new shutters by hand, and deliver them to you prior to installation. Real wood shutters tend to take longer than faux wood due to the staining and finishing process.It will take some time, but it’s a wait that’s definitely worth it.
