Are Vinyl Shutters or Wood Shutters Better for My Home ?

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your home.

These indoor shutters offer the ultimate in privacy and light control. They may even reduce your electricity bill and make your home more valuable.

It’s important to keep material on your mind while selecting shutters. Two popular choices are wood and vinyl, which is often called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they have different benefits.

We’ll walk you through the points of differentiation during a free, in-home consultation. See samples of our custom, American-made plantation shutters during a no-obligation meeting. All from the comfort of your living room!

Benefits of Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very economical plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters range from hollow to solid. We use quality solid louvers to ensure a long lifespan for your shutters.

 

LouverWood™ Shutters

We make our faux wood shutters with LouverWood™. This contemporary synthetic insulates three times better than wood.

This material delivers efficiency you can see on your electricity bill. LouverWood™ shutters are better than hollow vinyl or composite. They utilize a solid cellular PVC that won’t warp or crack. Even under high temperatures and elevated humidity.

That makes LouverWood™ shutters an excellent option for rooms with a lot of moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal homes. Our proprietary material fights water, scratches and fading, so you can get years of enjoyment from your shutters.
