Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Atlanta
Sunburst Shutters was founded in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who thought they could make a better shutter than any other in the US.
The ambition to be the best shutter company has turned every aspect of the window treatment business on its head. Sunburst offered 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 attentive and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the US fell in love with Sunburst Shutters fast.
In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the standard 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 exclusively. But it became evident fast 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 purchased it. After much research, sampling, and testing, Sunburst released its Polywood Shutters.
Once Sunburst offered the first class shutters in the marketplace, they grew substantially, opening locations across America. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters expanded 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 over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is hands down the best source of window treatment products in the nation.
