Are Vinyl Shutters or Wood Shutters Better for My Home in Lake Charles?

Plantation shutters are a classic look for your Lake Charles home.

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

It’s important to keep material on your mind while selecting shutters. Two in-demand options are wood and vinyl, which is sometimes called faux wood.

While both materials look interchangeable at first glance, they have distinct benefits.

We’ll walk you through the distinctions 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 Vinyl Shutters

Vinyl is a very economical 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 modern synthetic insulates three times better than wood.

This material delivers efficiency you can see on your utility 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 an excellent 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 have years of enjoyment from your shutters.
