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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Boston home.

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

It’s critical to keep material in mind while creating custom shutters. Two highly-requested materials are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they provide different 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!

 

Benefits of Wood 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 contemporary synthetic insulates three times better than wood.

This material delivers efficiency you can see on your electricity 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 a great selection for rooms with a lot of moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal spaces. Our proprietary material resists water, scratches and fading, so you can get years of enjoyment from your shutters.
