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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Pittsburgh home.

These indoor shutters offer the ultimate in privacy and light control. They may even lower your energy bill and make your home more valuable.

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

While both materials look similar at first glance, they have different 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 visit. All from the comfort of your living room!

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 houses. Our proprietary material counteracts water, scratches and fading, so you can find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
