Are Wood or Vinyl Shutters Better for My Home?

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Louisville space.

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

It’s critical to keep material top of mind while choosing 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 distinct benefits.

We’ll outline 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 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 modern synthetic insulates three times better than wood.

This material offers efficiency you can see on your energy 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 raised humidity.

That makes LouverWood™ shutters an excellent selection 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 find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
