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

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Austin house.

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

It’s vital to keep material on your mind while creating custom shutters. Two in-demand choices are wood and vinyl, which is sometimes called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they have distinct 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!

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 better than hollow vinyl or composite. They are built from a solid cellular PVC that won’t warp or crack. Even under high temperatures and raised humidity.

That makes LouverWood® shutters a great option 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.
