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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Columbia home.

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

It’s critical to keep material on your mind while choosing shutters. Two highly-requested choices are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

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

We’ll go over 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 Wood Shutters

Wood shutters are the absolute standard in interior shutters.

A balanced combination of light and strong, these timeless shutters last for years. With painted or stained finishes, wood shutters add an inviting quality to your home.

Available in painted or stained finishes, wood shutters add a inviting, classic look to your home.

Benefits of Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very economical plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters run from hollow to solid. We use quality solid louvers to ensure you can enjoy your shutters for many years.

 

LouverWood™ Shutters

We make our faux wood shutters with LouverWood™. This contemporary synthetic insulates three times better than wood.

This material brings efficiency you can see on your utility 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 increased humidity.

That makes LouverWood™ shutters a great choice for rooms with extra moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal houses. Our proprietary material fights water, scratches and fading, so you can get years of enjoyment from your shutters.
