Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to Virginia Beach

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 America.

The vision 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 choosing the best window treatment product. On top of that, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were well-mannered and friendly – and, at the same time, skilled and helpful. Homeowners across the US 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 showed clients a more enduring and energy-efficient window treatment: plantation shutters

Originally, the company offered wood shutters exclusively. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides maximum 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

Once Sunburst offered the best shutters on the market, they grew considerably, opening locations across the US. In 2008, Sunburst Shutters grew 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-made and professionally installed. With over 2,000 window treatment choices and options, Sunburst is the absolute source of window treatment products in in the US.
