Longer Lasting Compared To Other Shutters

Polywood not only performs better but it also lasts longer than regular wood shutters. That’s because Polywood shutters may look like wood, but they are actually manufactured from solid materials that are resistant to heat, moisture, termites, and more. They also work well in particularly humid areas where wood can easily become warped.

Polywood Shutters Are Eco-Friendly Product

Polywood is also a good choice for the environment. If making more eco-friendly choices is high on your list, consider that over 50% of a tree is wasted in the making of wood shutters before they even reach your window. Polywood, on the other hand, is manufactured from materials that can be recycled. This saves the forest and ensures oil reserves remain safe as it is a natural gas by-product, not reliant on petroleum.
