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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Albany home.

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

It’s important to keep material on your mind while creating custom shutters. Two highly-requested materials are wood and vinyl, which is sometimes called faux wood.

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

We’ll outline the points of differentiation 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 gold 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 feel to your home.

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

Benefits of Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very economical plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters range from hollow to solid. We use quality solid louvers to ensure a long lifespan for your shutters.

 

LouverWood® Shutters

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

This material offers efficiency you can see on your utility bill. LouverWood® shutters are superior 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 an excellent option for rooms with more 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.

Benefits of Hybrid Plantation Shutters

Hybrid plantation shutters integrate the best of both materials—the strength of wood and the effective insulation of synthetics.

 

Classic Shutters

Our highly-requested Classic shutters have the most popular features of our premium shutters. All at an incredible value. These shutters have a strong hardwood frame with energy-smart cellular PVC louvers.
