Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Detroit Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who believed they could make a better shutter than any other in the US. The objective to be the best shutter company has changed every aspect of the window treatment business. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s residence to walk them through picking the best window treatment product. With that in mind, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were attentive and friendly – and, at the same time, knowledgeable and helpful. Homeowners across the US fell in love with Sunburst Shutters fast. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a longer lasting and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. Originally, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides maximum energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters expanded its offerings into blinds, shades, draperies, and window film – and changed its name to Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions. Now, Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions offers any treatment for any size or shape of window – all custom-fashioned and professionally installed. With over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in in the US.
