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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Birmingham home.

These indoor shutters offer the epitome of privacy and light control. They may even lower your energy bill and make your home more valuable.

It’s important to keep material in mind while creating custom shutters. Two popular options are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they provide unique benefits.

We’ll outline the differences 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 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 a long lifespan for your shutters.

 

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 superior to hollow vinyl or composite. They are built from a solid cellular PVC that won’t warp or crack. Even under high temperatures and elevated humidity.

That makes LouverWood™ shutters an excellent 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.
