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

Plantation shutters are a beautiful look for your Tampa home.

These indoor shutters offer the epitome of privacy and light control. They may even reduce your utility bill and make your home more valuable.

It’s vital to keep material in mind while choosing shutters. Two popular materials are wood and vinyl, which is often called faux wood.

While both materials look similar at first glance, they offer different benefits.

We’ll outline the differences 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!

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 superior to hollow vinyl or composite. They utilize a solid cellular PVC that won’t warp or crack. Even under high temperatures and increased humidity.

That makes LouverWood® shutters a great selection for rooms with more moisture—such as bathrooms, laundry rooms or kitchens, as well as coastal homes. Our proprietary material fights water, scratches and fading, so you can get years of enjoyment from your shutters.
