Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Philadelphia Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who believed they could make a better shutter than any other in America. The ambition to be the best shutter company has changed every aspect of the window treatment business. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design specialists brought samples into a customer’s residence to walk them through selecting the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were respectful and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the nation fell in love with Sunburst Shutters fast. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters gave consumers a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At the beginning, the company offered wood shutters only. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides superior 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 broadened its collection 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-made and professionally installed. With more than 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in America.
