Faux Wood Shutters In blue Indianapolis Living Room

Polywood shutters are constructed from a synthetic composite that leads to superior energy efficiency and durability. We developed this faux wood shutter over 25 years ago to provide you with a high quality plantation shutter as good – if not better than – any wood shutter. Our Ovation wood shutters are crafted from solid teak. This furniture-grade wood shutter adds the natural feel of wood to any room in your Indianapolis home.

Energy Efficiency

Shutters are more energy efficient than any other window treatment you can buy in Indianapolis. And if plantation shutters are what you’re looking for, our faux wood shutters insulate 70% better than equivalent wood shutters. But that doesn’t mean our wood shutters aren’t exemplary when it comes to energy efficiency . The only window treatment to top their efficiency are Polywood shutters.

Durability

Polywood shutters are built from a solid-engineered wood substitute that won’t crack. They last far longer than traditional wood shutters. They can last for 50+ with adequate upkeep.

Our Ovation shutter is the only five star wood shutter in the world. And with both types of joints (mortise-and-tenon and dowel), these wood shutters are top quality in durability and will last decades in your Indianapolis home.

Cleaning

Both faux wood and wood shutters can be dusted easily. However, when it comes to stains, dirt, and other marks, all you have to do is wipe faux and wood shutters with a rag that’s barely damp. Make sure to quickly dry the wood shutters.

Colors

Polywood shutters come in three premium white paints as well as a variety of custom paints that can be matched to the room’s color style. The color on these faux wood shutters never fades thanks to a high quality paint with UV inhibitors. Ovation wood shutters look stunning when stained with one of our 28 wood stains.

Custom Built

Both faux wood shutters and wood shutters are custom fashioned to fit your window or door just right. Our professionals measure the window to design shutter panels that are exquisite and function without a hitch. 

Special Shapes

Whether your Indianapolis home has triangle windows or arched ones, we can custom build the plantation shutters you choose to fit seamlessly. Our specialists consider every curve and angle. And with our state-of-the-art computer software and 40+ years of experience, we fashion your real wood and faux wood shutters to the exact measurements of your specialty shaped window.
