Hybrid shutters are a type of window treatment that combines the benefits of two different materials: hardwood and a synthetic material such as vinyl or PVC. The result is a product that offers the look and feel of hardwood shutters with the added durability and resistance of synthetic materials.
The frame and louvers of hybrid shutters are typically made of a sturdy synthetic material, while the front-facing part of the shutter is made from hardwood. This allows for the appearance of hardwood shutters without the risk of warping, cracking or fading that can sometimes occur with solid wood shutters.
Here are some benefits to using Hybrid Shutters:
- Light and privacy control: Hardwood shutters can be adjusted to control the amount of light and privacy in a room. They can be fully opened to let in natural light, or closed to block out light and provide privacy
- Added durability (compared to other kinds of Shutters): added durability and resistance to moisture, heat, and UV radiation. They are often a good choice for high-moisture areas like bathrooms or kitchens, where the synthetic material can help prevent damage from humidity or moisture
