What are PVC shutters?

PVC shutters are made from polyvinyl chloride. It's a type of plastic material that is well-known for being a super versatile material with excellent durability.

Our plastic window shutters, or as we like to call them, Faux Wood Shutters, are an affordable and stylish alternative to traditional wooden shutters. Not only do they mimic the classic look of wood, but they also offer some unique benefits of their own.
