How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in Houston08/19/2015Cory Cryer One of the questions homeowners usually ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because I have the chance to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Houston get considerable 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). Interior Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the US, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. As a matter of fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from damaging sun rays. This ensures that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color despite how warm the Houston temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters a front runner compared to other window treatments, adding to your home’s value. Shutters Are A Permanent Fixture Since plantation shutters are designed 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 Houston is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar 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 increase and your house sell in no time. 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 elegant a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells quickly and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you select the modern look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make certain 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 inherent charm?
