Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Raleigh
Sunburst Shutters was started in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who knew they could make a better shutter than any other on the market.
The vision to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst offered an in-home consultation where design experts brought samples into a customer’s home to guide them in selecting the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were attentive and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the US fell in love with Sunburst Shutters fast.
In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the standard window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters introduced customers to a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters.
At first, the company offered wood shutters only. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides utmost energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters.
Once Sunburst offered the premium shutters in the marketplace, they grew substantially, opening locations across America. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters broadened its collection 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 America.
