Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Austin Sunburst Shutters was established in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who knew they could make a better shutter than any other in America. The goal to be the best shutter company has changed every aspect of the window treatment business. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s house to walk them through selecting the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were courteous and friendly – and, at the same time, experienced and helpful. Homeowners across the nation 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 showed clients a longer lasting and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. Originally, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it became evident fast that Sunburst should make the ultimate shutter – one that provides utmost energy efficiency, and looks as elegant 20 years from now as the day you had it installed. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst announced the creation of Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters broadened 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-crafted and professionally installed. With 2,000+ window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the ultimate source of window treatment products in the nation. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Austin In 1996, Sunburst widened its services to Austin so that Austinites would have the opportunity to experience the quality and beauty of plantation shutters.
