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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Raleigh space.

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 in-demand choices are wood and vinyl, which is sometimes called faux wood.

While both materials look similar at first glance, they provide distinct benefits.

We’ll walk you through the differences during a free, in-home consultation. See samples of our custom, American-made plantation shutters during a no-obligation appointment. 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 classic shutters last for years. With painted or stained finishes, wood shutters add an inviting warmth to your home.

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

Benefits of Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very cost-effective plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters run 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 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 an outstanding selection 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 have years of enjoyment from your shutters.
