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

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Charlotte home.

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

It’s vital to keep material in 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 unique 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!

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 electricity bill. LouverWood® shutters are superior to hollow vinyl or composite. They use 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 extra moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal spaces. Our proprietary material resists water, scratches and fading, so you can find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
