How Plantation Shutters Maximize Home Values in St. George08/19/2015Kasey Udy One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad they ask that because I'llget to tell them about the many features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in St. George gain substantial returns on their window treatment investment when they resell their house, thanks to the durable, energy-efficient, and beautiful plantation shutters our experts installed. Here’s how to get your plantation shutters return on investment (ROI). Plantation Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. Actually, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from damaging sun rays. This ensures that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color no matter how warm the St. George temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters a leader among other window treatments, adding to your home’s value. Shutters Are A Permanent Fixture Since plantation shutters are installed to custom fit to your windows, they become a permanent fixture. Whether it’s Polywood or Ovation, these shutters cannot be transplanted from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a valuable addition to the house. Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in St. George is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter. In fact, Polywood reduces heat transfer by 45.96%. With these energy efficient shutters on your home’s windows, any home buyer in the market will be interested in your house immediately. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell quicker. Shutters Are Beautiful When presenting the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression stays with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells in no time and one that stays on the market for too long.
