A distinctive door and Architecturally Correct® shutters from Seaport Shutter Company are bold, beautiful and made to last. The team of craftsmen make Custom Screen and Storm Doors, Exterior and Interior Shutters, Adirondack Chairs and Signs that will transform clients’ homes into thoughtfully tailored spaces. “Our products are authentic, classic and timeless. The materials we use, mahogany and cedar, are quality materials that will age gracefully,” said Sales Director, Lauren Huard. Customers have the opportunity to make their home extra special by choosing a custom design or from one of our signature designs. We love being able to make that happen.”
The idea for the company began from a lack of options in the marketplace for quality shutters in the 90’s. Owner and Founder Peter Malone decided to make shutters as he was renovating his old Sea Captain’s home in Harwich Port. Once hung on the house, a passerby stopped and inquired about his craftsmanship. At the time, Malone was working in the corporate world by day, switching gears to a growing shutter business by night. In 1997, Malone left the computer business to focus on Seaport Shutter Company full-time. “I was working at night out of my carriage house for three years trying to prove this concept. I told people I was going to enter the shutter business. My wife asked if I was crazy. I said, ‘maybe but we will find out,’” Malone laughs.
The company will be celebrating 25 years in business in 2020, a milestone and a true testament to the quality and timelessness of their products. Peter Malone hired his daughter, Lauren Huard, to run the sales side of the business in 2012-an easy transition from the PR world to a business that she loves.
The products are custom made in Seaport Shutter’s manufacturing shop in Chatham.
