Faux Wood Shutters VS Real Wood Shutters in Sacramento

October 21, 2015
When it comes to plantation shutters in Sacramento, homeowners have the choice of wood shutters or faux wood shutters. The differences between these types of plantation shutters go beyond the material they’re made of. At Sunburst Shutters Sacramento, we carry Polywood®; (a faux wood plantation shutter) and Ovation®; (a real wood shutter) to meet your window treatment needs. Let’s look at how faux wood shutters compare to real wood shutters. From their ease of cleaning to their energy efficiency and more.

Faux Wood Shutters In blue Sacramento Living Room

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

Shutters are more energy efficient than any other window treatment you can buy in Sacramento. And in the plantation shutters market, our faux wood shutters deflect the external weather conditions 70% better than similar wood shutters. That’s not to say our wood shutters are inefficient as the only window treatment that tops 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 care.

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 top quality in durability and will last decades in your Sacramento house.

Cleaning

You can dust both faux and wood shutters easily. However, if you encounter stains, dirt, and other marks, simply wipe faux and wood shutters with a slightly damp 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. The color on these faux wood shutters never fades thanks to a high quality paint with UV inhibitors. Ovation wood shutters stand out when stained with one of our 28 wood stains.

Custom Built

Both faux wood shutters and wood shutters are custom fashioned to fit your window or door seamlessly. Our specialists measure the window to create shutter panels that are exquisite and operate flawlessly. 

Special Shapes

Whether your Sacramento home has octagon windows or arched ones, we can custom build your choice of plantation shutters to fit perfectly. Our specialists consider every curve and angle. And with our state-of-the-art computer software and more than 40 years of experience, we build your real wood and faux wood shutters to the exact measurements of your specialty shaped window.
