Which Shutters Provide Better Insulation: Wood or Composite?

Which Shutter Provides

While, both wood and composite shutters provide a level of insulation, with temperature and light control, the density of composite shutters ranks it at the top of the R-value chart. What is R-value and why is it important? R-value measures heat resistance, so the higher the product’s R-value is, the better it is at insulating the home and improving energy efficiency.

Constructed with a solid MDF core and finished with a polypropylene coating that prevents moisture absorption, the composite shutter provides a range of benefits not offered in a wood or vinyl shutter. In fact, there are 4 benefits provided by composite shutters:

  1. Better consistency and durability
  2. Better heat resistance
  3. Will not fade or yellow with sun exposure
