Are Vinyl Shutters or Wood Shutters Better for My Home in San Antonio?

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your San Antonio home.

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

It’s vital to keep material top of mind while choosing shutters. Two popular choices are wood and vinyl, which is frequently called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they provide unique benefits.

We’ll go over 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 absolute standard in interior shutters.

An ideal combination of light and strong, these stylish shutters last for years. With painted or stained finishes, wood shutters add an inviting feel to your space.

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

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 offers efficiency you can see on your electricity bill. LouverWood™ shutters are better than hollow vinyl or composite. They are built from 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 a lot of 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.
