We are in the process of getting quotes for shutters/venetians for our windows.
One place recommends PVC as the material as its easy to clean and cheaper if we wanted white blinds.
Our Second quote at another blinds place said that PVC is crap and will warp and only sells timber made blinds. His quote came in very close to our first one at around $100 more.
Soo who do we believe. What are your own experiences with either product?
Also I heard there are also mdf type products?

PVC Venetian Blinds wont bow as long as the width is under 2400mm wide and come with a 5 year warrantee.
PVC Shutters are fine as well but I would only use them for wet areas, the maximum width is 800mm, they come with a 3 year warrantee.
Basswood shutters and are the best and come with a 5 year warrantee.
If you were going to have white venetians in your house I would us PVC as they look the same as Basswood and are cheaper and both come with a 5 year warrantee and also come in a 63 mm slat.

Has PVC venetians - fake wood type for 8 years in our last house with not one problem. Short of large amounts of heat on the PVC may cause change, but I would think it would have to be extreme.

We had the foamwood ones in our last house. Had no problems with them warping or losing colour. If our next house ever gets off the planning stage, then I will get them again.

All things considered, a free standing heater will do a better job that an inbuilt one. A fan makes them even better. I operate an Australian made Arrow 2400 and heat 30…
