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

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Pittsburgh house.

These indoor shutters provide the height of privacy and light control. They may even decrease 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 sometimes called faux wood.

While both materials look similar at first glance, they offer unique 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 Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very cost-effective plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters vary 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 energy bill. LouverWood™ shutters are superior to 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 selection for rooms with a lot of moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal homes. Our proprietary material counteracts water, scratches and fading, so you can find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
