Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Hartford Sunburst Shutters was established in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who believed they could make a better shutter than any other on the market. The goal to be the best shutter company has changed every aspect of the window treatment business. Sunburst started offering an in-home consultation where design professionals brought samples into a customer’s home to show them the steps in selecting the best window treatment product. With that in mind, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, knowledgeable and helpful. Homeowners across the nation quickly fell in love with Sunburst Shutters. 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 solely. But it was instantly obvious that Sunburst should make the ultimate shutter – one that provides superior energy efficiency, and looks as exquisite 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 grew 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-crafted and professionally installed. With 2,000+ window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the ultimate source of window treatment products in in the US.
