The Polywood® Shutters Difference

Manufactured from a solid-engineered wood substitute, Polywood is a premium poly shutter that doesn’t chip, crack, warp, or split, regardless of changes in temperature or sun exposure. The pristine white paint colors won’t yellow or fade, so you can expose these custom plantation shutters to any amount of sunlight without worry. That’s because the paint is baked on and combined with UV stabilizers. Through this process, the paint chemically bonds to the material, which is what makes Polywood® Shutters so sunlight resilient!
Not only do Polywood® Shutters last against sun exposure, but they block up to 30° of airflow that travels through your windows. This helps you save on energy costs, as well as better insulates your home from extreme changes in weather that Chicago residents know too well, which can help keep your home better protected from the elements.
At Sunburst Shutters, we want to ensure that our long-lasting, top-of-the-line Polywood® Shutters are safe. To that end, our plantation shutters are cordless and composed of hypoallergenic materials and paint, which have been proven to be safe for pets and children.
