Are Wood or Vinyl Shutters Better for My Home?

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Detroit house.

These indoor shutters provide the height of privacy and light control. They may even reduce your electricity bill and make your home more valuable.

It’s critical to keep material on your mind while creating custom shutters. Two in-demand materials are wood and vinyl, which is sometimes called faux wood.

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

We’ll outline the distinctions 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 Plantation Shutters

Vinyl is a very cost-effective plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters run from hollow to solid. We use quality solid louvers to ensure you can ejoy your shutters for many years.

 

LouverWood™ Shutters

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

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

That makes LouverWood™ shutters an outstanding choice for rooms with more moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal homes. Our proprietary material resists water, scratches and fading, so you can find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
