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 in the industry. 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, experienced and helpful. Homeowners across the nation fell in love with Sunburst Shutters at first sight. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the standard window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a longer lasting and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At first, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides superior energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 20 years from now as the day you bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst announced the creation of Polywood Shutters. 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.
