I have to buy exterior shutters. In aluminum, I am told that it is very expensive but that it does not move with time and PVC is cheaper but less resistant. Of course if I had a budget therefore I would not hesitate but it is not the case. Can you tell me if the PVC shutters are still of good quality and what is their lifespan? or is it better to save money to buy aluminum shutters?
You gave yourself the answers to your question: the aluminum shutters are stiffer, more pleasing to the eye when they are powder coated, often very insulating, but... they are more expensive. That being the case, do not worry, the PVC shutters are maintenance free and it is also very good quality. They do not move for at least 20 years. Prefer whites to tints whose long-term color resistance is not guaranteed.
