Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Houston Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who conceived that they could make a better shutter than any other in the industry. The vision to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s house to guide them in picking the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, experienced 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. At the beginning, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was instantly obvious 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 bought it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst announced the creation of Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters broadened its offerings 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 over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in the nation. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Houston In 1992, Sunburst expanded to Houston so that Houstonians would have the chance to experience the quality and beauty of plantation shutters. Whether we’re walking by NRG Stadium or the Woodlands, we love seeing our custom shutters throughout the town.
