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 on the market.
The ambition to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design experts brought samples into a customer’s home to guide them in choosing the best window treatment product. On top of that, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were courteous and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across America 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 gave consumers a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters.
Originally, the company offered wood shutters only. But it became evident fast 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 had it installed. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters.
Once Sunburst offered the best shutters in the industry, they grew substantially, opening locations across the country. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters extended 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-fashioned and professionally installed. With over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in in the US.
