HOMESTEAD IN THE WILLOWS

SHUTTER GUIDELINES

The original shutter on every house in Homestead was the Allegro Model wooden shutter manufactured by the Amato Shutter & Door Company.  The required shutter in Homestead continues to be the Allegro model or a shutter identical in style with 1 inch louvers and straight edges. 

Shutters should be sized so that if they were to actually close over the window, they would completely cover the window. Please measure carefully for the correct width and height.  Shutters from big box stores are not typically stocked in sizes appropriate for Homestead windows.  Shutters that are too narrow in width will be considered a covenant violation and homeowners will be required to remove them and replace them with the correct size.

When replacing shutters please take into consideration that custom sizes, order intervals and pricing may require advance planning.

Revised June, 2020

ACC Advisor -- Shutters

 

Approved shutters are louvered, wood or man-made material, with straight edges and proportioned to the window. Board and Batten style shutters with 3 vertical panels and 2 horizontal sashes are also approved.  Vinyl is not approved.

 

Since windows vary in size, it is impossible to give exact dimensions.  The Business Office and the website have the original shutter size schedule used by Sanford when our houses were built.  The original shutters are wide, approximately half the width of the window they border. Imagine that if they were working shutters, if you closed the shutters on each side of the window, they would close over the entire window.

 

See the pictures below.  The windows are the same size, on the same model home.  One has the original correct-sized shutters, the other narrow, incorrect-sized shutters.  If you are replacing your shutters, they must be the correct size and you must submit an “Application for Architectural Change” form for approval.
