Southern Custom Shutters: Perfect Window Treatments for Every Living Space

While you’ll find happy clients of Southern Custom Shutters all over the country, their factory is located in High Point, NC — also, appropriately, the furniture capital of the world! 

Those local industry connections speak to the craftsmanship you can expect from this family owned company — and employees pride themselves on making first-class quality products for the end user — you! — a top priority.

“We’re a local company with products manufactured in High Point, and we’re  just small enough to truly care about each individual job. Yet, we’re large enough to receive scaled benefits on pricing and labor — which improve the retail costs for our customers,” says owner Joseph Hooker. 


There’s quite the family history behind Southern Custom Shutters, beginning in the 1980s when Joe’s mother had her own window treatments retail business based in King, NC. After college graduation Joe worked with his mom, and soon met one of her associates who sold plantation shutters. He began as a rep for this new company in 1990, and by 1997, Joe had founded Southern Custom Shutters. With family ties still going strong, Joe’s two sons work in the business: Tyler works in the High Point factory, and Garrett is the retail representative in the Cary, NC market.

As part of their impeccable customer service, Southern Custom Shutters also brings their showroom directly to you — literally. During your free consultation, one of their local factory representatives will show you available samples and take measurements right in your home, to assist you in choosing the perfect look for your space. They can also match a color or wood stain that’s already in place.


When you’re ready to launch your project, you’ll meet William Ward, the experienced factory expert dedicated to the Lake Norman and Charlotte area. All Southern Custom Shutters reps are trusted, knowledgeable professionals, with experience in both sales and installation — so they understand all facets of the world of window treatments.

From the most stylish plantation shutters, to window blinds (both wood and faux wood) and shades (including roller, cellular, solar and motorized shades), even ultra-stylish porch shades that are perfect for your lake home, there’s a lot to love in the Southern Custom Shutters product line, and aesthetics isn’t the only end game!

“Our plantation shutters can adjust the lighting in a room — which is important for clients desiring a darker sleeping environment, and they can also offer privacy in those ‘necessary’ areas of your home,” Joe explains. Some customers rely on them to reduce cold drafts in winter and heat in summer — with many even seeing an improvement in energy costs for their home. Best of all, your new shutters will be guaranteed for life.


The company is proud of a product manufactured completely in the U.S., and all plantation shutters are made in-house at the High Point factory. Blinds and shades are typically sourced through Graber — one of the top national companies in the industry — and Southern Custom Shutters is authorized as a Graber Platinum Dealer.

Clients can also count on factory direct pricing — with no middle man and no inflated retail mark-up — and a turnkey installation process that’s simply a smart investment for your home. You’ll feel that family-owned warmth from your first phone call to the office, where Brooklyn and Erika will greet you with a friendly voice, and the assurance you’re talking to a local expert!

This is what over 50 years of experience looks like — respected quality, craftsmanship, and a genuine love for their product. Southern Custom Shutters is located at 6228 Prospect Street in High Point, NC, while serving clients throughout the entire coastal area from Morehead City, NC, to Charleston, SC, Richmond, VA, and in the Triangle area, as well as Seattle and Tacoma, WA, and Boston, MA.
