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

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Philadelphia house.

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

It’s vital to keep material in mind while selecting shutters. Two in-demand materials are wood and vinyl, which is sometimes called faux wood.

While both materials look similar at first glance, they have distinct 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 visit. All from the comfort of your living room!

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 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 offers efficiency you can see on your energy bill. LouverWood® shutters are superior to hollow vinyl or composite. They utilize a solid cellular PVC that won’t warp or crack. Even under high temperatures and elevated humidity.

That makes LouverWood® shutters an excellent selection for rooms with more moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal houses. Our proprietary material counteracts water, scratches and fading, so you can get years of enjoyment from your shutters.
