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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Huntsville house.

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

It’s vital to keep material top of mind while choosing shutters. Two popular materials are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

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

We’ll go over the points of differentiation during a free, in-home consultation. See samples of our custom, American-made plantation shutters during a no-obligation appointment. All from the comfort of your living room!

 

Benefits of Wood Shutters

Wood shutters are the gold standard in interior shutters.

Benefits of Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very affordable 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 modern 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 are built from a solid cellular PVC that won’t warp or crack. Even under high temperatures and increased humidity.

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