Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Fort Myers Sunburst Shutters was started in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who thought 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, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the nation quickly fell in love with Sunburst Shutters. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the common window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters gave consumers a longer lasting and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. Originally, the company offered wood shutters solely. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides premium energy efficiency, and looks as beautiful 20 years from now as the day you had it installed. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released 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-fashioned and professionally installed. With 2,000+ window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in the nation.
