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 on the market.
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 specialists brought samples into a customer’s house to show them the steps in choosing the best window treatment product. On top of that, 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 at first sight.
In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters introduced customers to 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 announced the creation of Polywood Shutters.
Once Sunburst offered the best shutters in the marketplace, they grew substantially, opening locations across the country. 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-built and professionally installed. With 2,000+ window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is hands down the best source of window treatment products in in the US.
