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

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Charleston space.

These indoor shutters offer 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 top of mind while selecting shutters. Two popular options are wood and vinyl, which is often called faux wood.

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

We’ll walk you through the distinctions 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 cost-effective plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters range 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 energy bill. LouverWood® shutters are preferable to hollow vinyl or composite. They use 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 more moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal spaces. Our proprietary material resists water, scratches and fading, so you can have years of enjoyment from your shutters.
