Learn How To Select A Sturdy Shutter In Detroit
Recently, a previous client reached out to one of our stores in Texas. The client had their house wiped out by a twister earlier this year, but the home’s Sunburst Polywood® plantation shutters held out.
Hopefully, your shutters won’t go through a tornado. But there are some things to look for when choosing shutters in Detroit that are durable and will beautify your home for generations.

The number one quality to look for when you need a durable window treatment is that it’s made from an extremely resilient material. For wood shutters, look for products made from hardwood that is known for being both solid and lightweight. Both furniture grade teak and basswood (the woods our Ovation® shutters are built with) meet this criteria.
For engineered shutters, focus on those built from a solid polymer like our Polywood® shutters. Polywood shutters have more durability than composite shutters, which tend to show damage more easily due to their interior structure. Polywood shutters are also resistant to moisture, fire, and termites.
High Quality Construction
How a shutter is constructed is an important piece of its sturdiness over time. Polywood shutters use tension control pins that prevent the louvers from becoming loose. They also have epoxy-coated stainless steel staples which are incredibly hard to pull out. Polywood’s core is solid, and its joints are secured and glued for superb sturdiness. Our Ovation shutters are the only five star wood shutter in the world and utilize two different styles of joints: dowel joints and mortise and tenon joints, which allows for extra stability. We are the only place which offers shutters constructed with extreme durability in mind.
Sunburst Shutters ensures that we take the utmost care in the measuring, creation, and installation processes to make sure you get picture-perfect custom shutters that match your windows perfectly.
Everybody wants shutters that will look brand-new several years after installation. A good number of composite shutters are prone to fading or yellowing over their lifetime. Sunburst’s Polywood shutters won’t ever lose their luster, due to a special coating that inhibits ultraviolet light that causes fading. In addition, a quick once over with a dustrag is all there is to keep your plantation shutters dust-free.
When purchasing shutters or other window treatments, the warranty is one more important factor. When you’re in the market for a high-quality shutter, you want a warranty to protect your investment. Our Polywood shutters are backed by a lifetime warranty against any defects that might occur in materials, workmanship, paint finish, or installation. Our Ovation shutters include a warranty which protects you from any defects.
