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

Plantation shutters are a timeless look for your Cincinnati house.

These indoor shutters offer the ultimate in privacy and light control. They may even lower your electricity bill and make your home more valuable.

It’s important to keep material top of mind while selecting shutters. Two popular materials are wood and vinyl, which is sometimes called faux wood.

While both materials look much alike at first glance, they offer 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 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 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 electricity 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 raised humidity.

That makes LouverWood™ shutters a great choice for rooms with more moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal houses. Our proprietary material resists water, scratches and fading, so you can find years of enjoyment from your shutters.
