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 ambition to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design specialists brought samples into a customer’s residence to walk them through choosing 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, experienced and helpful. Homeowners across the US quickly fell in love with Sunburst Shutters.
In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters introduced customers to a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters.
Originally, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides utmost energy efficiency, and looks as beautiful 20 years from now as the day you had it installed. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released its Polywood Shutters.
Once Sunburst offered the best shutters in the marketplace, they grew considerably, opening stores across America. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters grew its selection 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 the nation.
