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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Charlotte home.

These indoor shutters offer the ultimate in 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 choosing shutters. Two highly-requested options are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they offer different 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 visit. All from the comfort of your living room!

Benefits of Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very economical plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters vary from hollow to solid. We use quality solid louvers to ensure your shutters last a long time.

 

LouverWood™ Shutters

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

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

That makes LouverWood™ shutters an excellent option for rooms with a lot of moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal spaces. Our proprietary material fights water, scratches and fading, so you can find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
