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 conceived that they could make a better shutter than any other in the industry.
The vision to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s residence to guide them in choosing the best window treatment product. On top of that, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the US 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 more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters.
Originally, the company offered wood shutters only. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides premium energy efficiency, and looks as charming 20 years from now as the day you purchased it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released its Polywood Shutters.
Once Sunburst offered the premium shutters in the marketplace, they grew extensively, opening locations across the US. 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 over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is hands down the best source of window treatment products in the nation.
