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

Plantation shutters are a beautiful look for your Baltimore home.

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

It’s vital to keep material in 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 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 industry standard in interior shutters.

A balanced combination of light and strong, these classic 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 warm, classic look to your home.

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 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 delivers efficiency you can see on your energy bill. LouverWood™ shutters are preferable 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 a great choice for rooms with extra moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal homes. Our proprietary material resists water, scratches and fading, so you can get years of enjoyment from your shutters.

Classic Shutters
