Faux Wood Shutters In pretty Detroit Living Room

Polywood shutters are constructed from a synthetic composite that leads to increased energy efficiency and durability. We created this faux wood shutter more than 25 years ago to bring you a high quality plantation shutter to rival any wood shutter. Our Ovation wood shutters are crafted from solid teak. This furniture-grade wood shutter adds the classic look of wood to any room in your Detroit home.

Energy Efficiency

Shutters are more energy efficient than any other window treatment you can buy in Detroit. And when it comes to plantation shutters, our faux wood shutters block the effects of the outside climate 70% better than equivalent wood shutters. And our wood shutters are no slouch when it comes to energy efficiency . The only window treatment to top their efficiency are Polywood shutters.

Durability

Polywood shutters are made from a solid-engineered wood substitute that won’t warp. They last far longer than traditional wood shutters. They can last for more than 50 years with adequate care.

Our Ovation shutter is the only five star wood shutter in the US. 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 Detroit residence.

Cleaning

It’s easy to dust both faux and wood shutters. However, if you encounter stains, dirt, and other marks, just wipe faux and wood shutters with a slightly damp rag. You’ll want to quickly dry wood shutters.

Colors

Polywood shutters are available in three premium white paints as well as a selection of custom paints that can be matched to the room’s color style. The color on these faux wood shutters never fades thanks to a high quality paint with UV inhibitors. Ovation wood shutters are best when stained with one of our 28 wood stains.
