Are Wood or Vinyl Shutters Better for My Home?

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Wichita space.

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

It’s critical to keep material in mind while selecting shutters. Two in-demand options are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they offer unique benefits.

We’ll go over 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!

LouverWood™ Shutters

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

This material brings efficiency you can see on your utility bill. LouverWood™ shutters are preferable to 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 choice for rooms with extra moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal homes. Our proprietary material counteracts water, scratches and fading, so you can have years of enjoyment from your shutters.
