Faux Wood Shutters VS Real Wood Shutters10/21/2015Curtis Orton When searching for plantation shutters in Sacramento, homeowners have the choice of wood shutters or faux wood shutters. These plantation shutters are more different than you think. At Sunburst Shutters Sacramento, we offer Polywood®; (a faux wood plantation shutter) and Ovation®; (a real wood shutter) to meet your window treatment needs. We compare faux wood shutters side by side with wood shutters. From their ease of cleaning to their energy efficiency and more. Materials Polywood shutters are made from a synthetic composite that provides superior energy efficiency and durability. We formed this faux wood shutter over 25 years ago to provide you with a high quality plantation shutter as good – if not better than – any wood shutter. Our Ovation wood shutters are built from solid teak. This furniture-grade wood shutter brings the warmth of wood to any room in your Sacramento home. Energy Efficiency Compared to other window treatments, shutters are the most energy efficient in Sacramento. And in the plantation shutters market, our faux wood shutters deflect the external weather conditions 70% better than similar wood shutters. And our wood shutters are no slouch when it comes to energy efficiency as the only window treatment to top their efficiency are Polywood shutters. Durability Polywood shutters are crafted from a solid-engineered wood substitute that won’t chip. They last far longer than traditional wood shutters. They can last over 50 years with proper upkeep. Our Ovation shutter is the only five star wood shutter in the world. And with both types of joints (mortise-and-tenon and dowel), these wood shutters are the best in their class for durability and will last decades in your Sacramento house. Cleaning Both faux wood and wood shutters can be dusted easily. However, if you encounter stains, dirt, and other marks, just wipe faux and wood shutters with a lightly moistened rag. Wipe off any remaining residue with a dry cloth – especially on wood shutters. Colors Polywood shutters are available in three premium white paints. And we bring you a selection of custom paints that can be matched to the room’s color scheme. We apply a high quality paint that contains UV inhibitors so the color never fades.
