Wooden Shutters vs PVC Shutters
Wooden Shutters has the tendency to rot, crack, split, fade and warp over time, that’s why PVC Shutters are made from a solid, durable and non-toxic, synthetic material and will not absorb moisture, split, crack or delaminate.
PVC shutters hold up better than wooden shutters. They are water resistant, fire retardant and provide greater insulating power(3X) more than wooden shutters and excellent UV protection.
PVC shutters are a great investment when buying a home. They look like wooden shutters, but come with a better price tag and longer life span. PVC shutters are the preferred choice when you have to consider things like humidity effects, durability and price.
