Sunburst Shutters Company History: How We Brought Custom Shutters to San Jose Sunburst Shutters was established in the early '70s in Phoenix, AZ, by people who knew they could make a better shutter than any other in America. The objective to be the best shutter company has changed every aspect of the window treatment business. Sunburst provided an in-home consultation where design specialists brought samples into a customer’s house to show them the steps in choosing the best window treatment product. In addition, Sunburst set out to hire sales staff that were attentive and friendly – and, at the same time, knowledgeable 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 solely. But it was quickly apparent that Sunburst should create the ultimate shutter – one that provides maximum 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 expanded 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 in the US.
