Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to San Diego 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 the industry. 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 house to show them the steps in picking the best window treatment product. With that in mind, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were respectful and friendly – and, at the same time, knowledgeable and helpful. Homeowners across America fell in love with Sunburst Shutters at first sight. In the '70s, draperies and blinds were the usual window treatments in most homes. That’s when Sunburst Shutters showed clients a more durable and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters. At the beginning, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it became evident fast that Sunburst should make 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 revealed its Polywood Shutters. 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-designed and professionally installed. With 2,000+ window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in the nation.
