Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Charlotte 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 goal to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s house to walk them through picking the best window treatment product. On top of that, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the US quickly fell in love with Sunburst Shutters. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the common window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a longer lasting and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. Originally, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should make the ultimate shutter – one that provides utmost energy efficiency, and looks as charming 20 years from now as the day you purchased it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters grew 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 the absolute source of window treatment products in in the US. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Charlotte In 2015, Sunburst widened its services to Charlotte so that North Carolinians would have the opportunity to experience the quality and elegance of plantation shutters.
