Are Wood Shutters or Vinyl Shutters Better for My Home in Kansas City?

Plantation shutters are a beautiful look for your Kansas City home.

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

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

While both materials look similar at first glance, they have unique benefits.

We’ll walk you through the points of differentiation 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 affordable plantation shutter. The louvers on these shutters vary from hollow to solid. We use quality solid louvers to ensure you can enjoy your shutters for many years.

 

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 energy bill. LouverWood® shutters are superior to hollow vinyl or composite. They utilize a solid cellular PVC that won’t warp or crack. Even under high temperatures and elevated 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 houses. Our proprietary material resists water, scratches and fading, so you can have years of enjoyment from your shutters.
