Louver Shop of Cincinnati History

Dedicated to You Since 1972

Founded in 1972, Louver Shop was built on quality and value. Jim Guess and Bill Rives began this company in Stone Mountain, Georgia. That’s where they manufactured shutters in their garage and spent the summers and winters fighting the weather to meet the order demand.

As they became more and more well known for the quality and consistency of their shutters, the family business grew promptly across the southeast. They soon surpassed their home workshop capacity and moved into a larger manufacturing facility in the early 1980s.

Since then, Louver Shop has strengthened into the biggest manufacturer and retailer of custom shutters in the United States. Always made in America, Louver Shop window treatments have become the industry standard for quality and innovation with dozens of proprietary processes and patented features.

Today, we are headquartered in Gainesville, Georgia, with a 150,000-square-foot manufacturing site. We work with more than 100 full-time team members who produce a variety of window coverings, with unmatched quality and the shortest lead times in our industry.

As we continue to grow, Louver Shop will stay committed to the standards of hard work and devotion to purpose that have supported our team members, partners, clients and customers for nearly 50 years.

Our history and our people make sure you get the most innovative, highest-quality window treatments available on the market now. As we start the second half of a century in business, Louver Shop lives our motto:

Your Vision. Our Expertise. It’s How Beautiful Homes Happen.
