Irv Schnell

Irv Schnell has been in the shutter business for over four decades, beginning as an apprentice for an industry legend, Paul Heinley Shutters, one of the creators of the contemporary custom shutter. During the early 1970′s, Irv mastered every aspect of the shutter business, from the precision wood-working necessary to turn out a beautiful louver to the artistry of designing shutters for custom decors. As Irv’s reputation grew, he became one of the most sought-after shutter designers in California. Irv went on to found his own shutter manufacturing company, which was instrumental in popularizing custom shutters as the window treatment of choice in modern interior decor. Often working with California’s finest interior designers, Irv built and installed shutters for homeowners including Rock Hudson, Bob Dylan, Gabe Kaplan, Lucille Ball, Danny Thomas, Henry Mancini, Paul Newman, Ann Margret, Robert Stack, Roger Moore, Aaron Spelling, Kenny Rogers, Jane Fonda, Janet Leigh, Dyan Cannon, and many others. As the industry grew, Irv developed a reputation as somebody who knows the shutter business inside and out, and worked as a consultant for some of the nation’s largest shutter manufacturers. As President of The Shutter Source, Irv assembled his dream team to serve you.

Kevin Warren

Kevin Warren supervises The Shutter Source installation team and personally installs the shutters for many of our customers. Kevin is a master shutter installer, dedicated to the highest standards and insists on the very best service and craftsmanship. As our customers will affirm, Kevin loves to serve people and make customers happy through the art of shutters.

According to Kevin, he knew he was going to be a carpenter almost from birth. As a child, he learned fine carpentry at the knee of his Grandfather Jacob, a master craftsman who created fine violins. One of those children who is always building things, Kevin built his own doghouse in the first grade and was passionate about woodshop throughout his school years. He professionally developed and honed his skills for ten years as a master finish carpenter designing, building, and installing custom entertainment systems and high end kitchen cabinetry. He was then hired by one of the largest shutter manufacturers in America, where he perfected the art of shutters for another ten years. Seeking a venue where he could better express his passion for excellence and personal customer care, Kevin joined The Shutter Source team and has been with us right from the start. From the beginning, he fell in love with both the beauty and technical excellence of our Duracore® Shutters™ and our classic hardwood product lines. At The Shutter Source, he can fully express his passion for excellent craftsmanship.

When he isn’t ensuring your happiness as a Shutter Source customer, Kevin enjoys spending time with his family. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Angela, and they have two children. When you choose The Shutter Source, you know that your shutters are being produced and installed by a real person who serves you like your own neighbor.
