Are Wood or Vinyl Shutters Better for My Home?

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Columbus home.

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

It’s critical to keep material on your mind while choosing shutters. Two in-demand choices are wood and vinyl, which is often 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 meeting. All from the comfort of your living room!

Benefits of Vinyl Plantation Shutters

Vinyl is a very cost-effective 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 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 elevated humidity.

That makes LouverWood™ shutters an excellent choice for rooms with a lot of 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.
