Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Fort Lauderdale Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who believed they could make a better shutter than any other in the US. The goal to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design experts brought samples into a customer’s home to guide them in choosing the best window treatment product. With that in mind, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were respectful and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across America 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 gave consumers a longer lasting and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. Originally, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides premium energy efficiency, and looks as elegant 20 years from now as the day you purchased it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters extended 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-fashioned 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. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Fort Lauderdale In 1994, Sunburst spread its services to Fort Lauderdale so that Floridians would have the opportunity to experience the quality and charm of plantation shutters.
