With the current log ban in the Philippines, I found out just now that replacing my wood shutterswill be very costly. Friends suggest that I use the resin alternatives that are cheaper, look almost as good as natural wood and are much more durable. The suggestion is probably a good one but I will have to study it a bit. For a lot of people and that includes me. Wood is wood and there is something about it that is keeping me from shifting to other materials.
