Customer Testimonials

 

Before

We were excited to get new shutters for our house and found the perfect ones at Accent. The customer service was great, and the delivery was timely. We will be ordering more for the side of the house. We particularly liked the ease of installing them and the matching hardware. I'm sending before and after photos. I think you'll see a big difference.


Thanks so much,
Rick and Debbie - Texas

We have really apprecaited the good service you have provided us. Not only did we get a hand written thank you note, but we also got a phone call from you as well. Totally unheard of in today's market of all recorded customer service. It was really nice to see that some of our old values are still being practiced when it comes to the customer.


Our house was very drab until we put up the shutters. It helped with the curb appeal alot. A very nice porduct that I would recommend to others

We had requested samples of shutters several year ago and at that time we were not sure if shutters were for us. In 2007, we had bad wind damage and decided to replace our roof with metal. I found the samples
and the color matched so I ordered from APM (Accent Building Products) and wished I had done it earlier. Great quality and simple to install. Thanks for a great product!

We had a great experience buying our shutters online at APMDirect.com (now Accent Building Products). We did our homework and found APM to be the best value by far. The website was very easy to use, especially to order custom sizes. The shutters arrived within a week and were very easy to install---much easier than we anticipated! As you can see from the pictures they look great! We've received many compliments and truly believe our new shutters have greatly improved our curb appeal.

As you can see, we are still in the process of completing our project. We have owned our 1880 victorian since 1973 and have renovated the interior and painted the exterior once before. This time since it was looking very shabby, we decided to give it a whole different look. We added a gable trim and a wrought iron window box below the kitchen window on the second floor. But the shutters are what made everything else pop. We got many compliments (and job offers) from total strangers. It made all the hard work that much more worthwhile.

I have received countless compliments from people in my neighborhood. I have been told that the shutters made the "world of difference" and that my house was the prettiest one in the subdivision. I really like the quality of the APM (now Accent Building Products) products and have more shutters for the back and a few other items I intend to buy in the near future.

We loved our newly-purchased house but decided that the front exterior needed some sprucing up. After researching our options, we decided on cost-effective shutters from APM Direct (now Accent Building Products). And what a difference! Not only did the shutters "make it look like a whole new house," according to neighbors and friends, but the dentil and window mantels really added a special finishing touch. Installation was simple and easily completed in a day's time, and the APM (now Accent Building Products) customer service was fantastic -- when we decided to change shutter sizes for one of the windows, their response was prompt and courteous. Overall, a wonderful experience and highly effective way to add value to the home by increasing curb appeal.

Shutters are "icing on the cake" when it comes to coordinating your home's look and increasing its curb appeal. And no one makes it easier...nay, a joy...than APM Direct (now Accent Building Products)! We replaced some old, faded and too short painted shutters (ugh!) with all vinyl shutters where the Midnight Green color reigned supreme throughout. I was pleasantly surprised to find out how easy it was to install the shutters...my 14-year old son and I did all those windows in a single day! Thanks to APM Direct (now Accent Building Products), we're quickly becoming the talk of the neighborhood! I guess you could say they're "midnight green" with envy!!

We placed our order online for 10 sets of custom panel shutters from your company. The website contains detailed information regarding these products, including clear photographs and warranty information. The online order form is easy to complete and all our shipping questions were addressed. Our shutters arrived in good condition within the time specified. We have received many compliments from neighbors and friends regarding the stylish addition to the exterior of our home. We are very pleased with the product and would definitely order from APM (now Accent Building Products) again.

Recently, my wife found APM Direct (now Accent Building Products) online and ordered shutters for a house I was building at the time. After seeing the quality of the product, she decided that after living in our new house for nearly 2 years, it was in dire need of , in her words, "dressing-up", so she ordered shutters for our home. I have been a professional single-family residential contractor for over 25 years in the state of Missouri. Over the years I have used many different types and brands of shutters, including ones I have constructed myself out of lumber. After using the vinyl shutters sold to us by APM Direct (now Accent Building Products) I will not use any other. I have found that the ease of installation for this shutter system is remarkable and feel that these shutters would be just as easy for any homeowner, not to mention the ease of ordering, the promptness of shipment and the price.

The quality of materials used in the construction of these shutters is, in my opinion, equal to or greater than any other shutter system I have used in the past. I would highly recommend the shutters APM Direct (now Accent Building Products) distributes to anyone, especially the novice homeowner, installation is truly that simple and quick. While I was installing our shutters, two of our neighbors came over to inspect my project and to express the change the shutters had made to our house, one commenting that the shutters make our house look like a home now. Needless to say, my wife and I are both definitely pleased with the new look of our home.

Shutters came in earlier than expected, a good thing. We put shutters on 18 windows, many different sizes, all were a perfect fit even the custom order sizes. Everything was there, no missing parts or pieces. Easy to install. As you can see made a dramatic difference in the appearance of the old place. Great product! Great service! Thank you.

Custom Shutters ordered for a shed, intended to match shutters on the adjacent house. APM Direct (now Accent Building Products) had the correct color as well as the ability to tailor the size to fit shed window height while not being too wide. The shutters were easy to order & easy to install. No Project too small! The color was exactly what I expected and wanted. Thanks APM Direct (now Accent Building Products)!

Our spring project this year was to replace all the old painted plastic shutters on the house. They were starting to fade and crack. After some research we found APM Direct (now Accent Building Products). Their prices were competitive and when we received the samples in the mail we knew their shutters were exactly what we were looking for. The vinyl wouldn't crack and the color was all the way through. The directions were so simple to follow that I decided to surprise my husband. When he was gone one day, my 11-year-old daughter and I decided to tackle the job ourselves. As you can see from the photo we did a great job. My husband and the neighbors agree. Thank you APM Direct (now Accent Building Products).

Installation of front door surround, sunbursts, and windows headers on all sides of house. As our house is on the corner and visible from all sides, I thought it important to frame the door and windows all around with the addition of a door surround, window headers, and sunbursts. I love the new look to our nearly ten-year-old house! Best of all, it was easy (for my husband) to install!

Loved our house front until we removed several very large, very old rhododendrons. Then the house looked "naked," until we found APM (now Accent Building Products) shutters online! Local do-it-yourself stores just didn't carry sizes or products we needed. APM (now Accent Building Products) was great to work with from the speedy delivery of sample colors to the quick delivery of products. Now it looks like a real dressed up house again. Thanks so much.

We added a second story to our home and used products from your company for shutters and dentil molding trim work. The dentil molding runs along the front of the house, along the top of the front porch and along the pitched roof of the front porch. We are extremely happy will the beautiful details that your products gave our home. I believe that it is the finishing touches that make a project come together for that "grand finale".

My project started small. I own a house in a new subdivision where all the houses are the same. I wanted a small accent to make my house stand out from the rest. After receiving the color catalog and samples I was like a kid in a candy store! I could not order just one product. The installation was so simple that my 15 year old son installed the exterior trim, gable accents, shutters and window mantels. We also installed the door surround. Everything matches perfectly! Larry was my consultant, he was a great help, a big thumbs up to Larry. Thank you!!

Last year my wife and I decided it was time to remodel the exterior of our house. We needed a new roof, and decided to change the color from brown to estate grey. We also had white vinyl trim installed over the existing yellow wood trim. That was the easy part. Finding the right color shutters to compliment the new trim and roof was much more difficult than we expected. We went to every home improvement store within a 100 mile radius, but were unsuccessful in finding the color, and assorted size shutters that we wanted. I went online and searched for sites that offered vinyl shutters. After many failed attempts at finding what I wanted, I ran across the APM Direct (now Accent Building Products) website. I was easily able to order info and sample of vinyl shutters. Within a few days, I received detailed information and samples of a wide range of styles and colors to choose from. My wife and I were able to choose a color, midnight blue, that perfectly complimented the new roof and vinyl trim. We were also able to order the exact sizes that we needed at very reasonable prices. The shutters were shipped promptly and were very easy to install. My wife and I are very well pleased with our "new" house, thanks to APM Direct (now Accent Building Products).

At APMdirect (now Accent Building Products), we were able to find the perfect finishing

We also found a petite house marker wall plaque to match the full sized one we ordered for the main house. Thanks for helping us complete a labor of love with quality, affordable products!

After picking out the shingles, siding and window colors, I knew I needed just the right color to really make this a knock out project. I went online and requested shutter samples. You sent them immediately and I quickly picked out the right color for the project. We get so many compliments and I always pass on where we got our products. Keep up the good work. Thank you so much for your products!

May 2, 2002 a tornado hit Jackson TN destroying much of the old downtown. Madison county was hit by grapefruit size hail causing severe damage a large number of homes. Our home had the roof and gutters destroyed, all the north and west windows and the siding was damaged and had to be replaced. Almost every home in Madison Co. had major damage resulting in no available local contractors. My wife and I with our son's help on college breaks removed and replaced all the siding (1050 pieces) all the north and west window. This took about 16 months working every weekend and afternoon during that time.
Last week October 15 we installed the last APM (now Accent Building Products) shutter completing the exterior work. During our repair we upgraded the house with Hardiplank siding, metal clad windows and APM musket brown colored shutters. The shutters installed so easy and the color we picked was the key to pulling the three colors of the siding, roof and trim together. We have had many compliments on the result. Great Product and the color matched the samples exactly. The process for ordering was so painless. I ordered color samples then placed the internet order and received exactly what I ordered. The installation using the color matched pegs went smoothly and adjustments was a matter of a slight whack with the rubber hammer. The shutters were really the final piece that made the house jump out. We have people driving around on weekends and it is not uncommon to see someone stopped in the street admiring our home. Our experience with APM (now Accent Building Products) was great - correctly billed, correctly shipped and the quality product advertised.

We found it very easy to shop for shutters at APM Direct (now Accent Building Products). The old shutters on the house fell apart when the painter removed them. That day I ordered from APM Direct and the new shutters arrived within a week. Great Job. The new panel style shutters really dress up the house. Thank you!

Everyone always comments on how our "little house", could be used as an in-law suite & how beautifully our shutters on the shed match the ones on our house. We had actually purchased other shutters, but returned because we were dissatisfied with the quality of the product. Then we found APM (now Accent Building Products) on the internet & purchased them for even cheaper than the ones we had originally bought at a local store, such good quality!!!!
- Deb, Pennsylvania
 
We removed all the old wooden shutters, painted the old home and replaced the old shutters with the new green ones. I installed them myself, it was not that difficult. The hardest part was the measurements to get them leveled. It took about three hours to install them. The dramatic difference the shutters made was incredible. We live across the street from the old city park and we have had nothing but compliments. If was so easy to order the shutters online. We had them all within a week. One of the units was the wrong sized and when I called to explain this the person on the other end was incredibly helpful and had the correct one out in a few days, no hassles. That was very refreshing. Any further orders I need filled will be done through APM (now Accent Building Products). Thanks.

Shopping at APM Direct (now Accent Building Products) was a breeze. We found the style of shutters we wanted, the color we wanted, and they arrived quickly. They had the best prices around both from local home stores, and from other web sites. I installed them with no trouble, and today the house looks beautiful. It was a very positive process, and I frequently visit the APM Direct web site, just to see what is available. I would highly recommend doing business with APM Direct (now Accent Building Products).

I purchased my 1926 bungalow two years ago. It was the epitome of the "fixer-upper." The inside needed totally redone, and the outside was hidden underneath overgrown trees and shrubs. After trimming the trees, planting new gardens, and painting my house pale pink, I thought I was finished. I realized that it needed something more. That is when I discovered APM Direct's (now Accent Building Products) vinyl shutters. I ordered a pair of black shutters for every window, and my two sons helped me install them. Our house is now the most beatiful house on the block, thanks to our wonderful, low-maintenance APM Direct (now Accent Building Products) vinyl shutters. Without them, our house would be like any other in our neghborhood.

Hello! I was looking through my old emails to delete and remembered I had never thanked you for all your trouble with my order. I seldom write a "thank you" letter to a business but your company was exceptional. Your installation system was so simple that I actually hung all of the shutters ALL by myself (and I am only 100 lbs. strong!). We recently had wind gusts up to 50mph while I was away at work and I was happily surprised when I got home to see each pair of shutters exactly as I left them. And every time I drive home, I think how much such an inexpensive project brightened up the appearance of my home! So a big "THANKS!" is in order to your company and I wish you much success in the new year! - Paula, Ohio
 
I was extremely pleased with the order process, delivery and installation of the product. The installation using the plastic push in fasteners made it really quick and easy.
