Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Gainesville 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 US. The goal to be the best shutter company has transformed every aspect of the window treatment industry. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design experts brought samples into a customer’s home to guide them in 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, experienced and helpful. Homeowners across the nation fell in love with Sunburst Shutters at first sight. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the standard window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters introduced customers to a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At the beginning, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should craft the ultimate shutter – one that provides premium energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 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 broadened its selection 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-crafted and professionally installed. With more than 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the ultimate source of window treatment products in the nation.
