Are Vinyl Shutters or Wood Shutters Better for My Home in Louisville?

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Louisville space.

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

It’s critical to keep material in 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 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!

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 electricity 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 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 fights water, scratches and fading, so you can find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
