Are Wood or Vinyl Shutters Better for My Home?

Plantation shutters are a beautiful look for your Gulf Coast house.

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

It’s vital to keep material top of mind while creating custom shutters. Two in-demand materials are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

While both materials look interchangeable at first glance, they offer different benefits.

We’ll outline the differences during a free, in-home consultation. See samples of our custom, American-made plantation shutters during a no-obligation visit. All from the comfort of your living room!

 

Benefits of Wood Plantation Shutters

Benefits of Vinyl Plantation Shutters

Vinyl is a very cost-effective 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 offers efficiency you can see on your utility 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 a great selection for rooms with a lot of moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal homes. Our proprietary material counteracts water, scratches and fading, so you can get years of enjoyment from your shutters.
