PVC shutters should last forever, but other factors such as sunlight and heat can take a toll on them. Overall, many modern PVC shutter products last roughly 50 years.
PVC is made from polymerized vinyl chloride, which is clear and flexible yet also one of the world’s most stable materials. As long as it is not exposed to light for too long or too often, PVK will never react to UV rays in an unhealthy way and should stay strong and beautiful for at least 100 years.
PVC shutters can be installed on both new construction and older homes with siding that is already damaged or deteriorating – giving homeowners options for upgrading their exterior feel without damaging their home’s interior look or insulation due to weather.
