Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Phoenix Sunburst Shutters was started 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 transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst offered an in-home consultation where design experts 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, knowledgeable and helpful. Homeowners across the nation quickly fell in love with Sunburst Shutters. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a more durable and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At the beginning, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it became evident fast that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides maximum energy efficiency, and looks as beautiful 20 years from now as the day you had it installed. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst revealed its Polywood Shutters. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters extended 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 hands down the best source of window treatment products in in the US. Bringing Custom Window Treatments to Phoenix In 1979, Sunburst expanded to Phoenix so that Arizonians would have the opportunity to experience the quality and beauty of plantation shutters.
