How Long Will It Take To Install Shutters in Oklahoma City? The whole plantation shutter process, beginning with your starting consultation through putting your shutters in, usually takes about four to six weeks on average. The reason it takes this long is because our goal is to build the perfect shutters for your windows. Doing that requires us to take exact measurements, use sophisticated software to design your shutters, assemble your brand-new shutters manually, and deliver them to your home for installation. Shutters made from real wood typically take longer than faux wood because of the extra steps needed to stain and treat the wood.It will take a little time, but it’s absolutely worth the wait.
