August 19, 2015

One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m about to leave their house is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because I'llget to tell them about the many features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have 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 professionals 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 looked after. Actually, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from damaging sun rays. This ensures that Polywood never warp or lose its color regardless of how high 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 considerable 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 know that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell faster.

Shutters Are Beautiful

When presenting the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression remains 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. Whether you go with the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the classic richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and complements the charm of your window.

And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the dining room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their natural elegance? Thanks to our cutting edge computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom craft your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
