One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because this allows me to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Houston get great 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).
Interior Shutters Are Durable
More than any other shutter on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when looked after. 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 stand out from 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 an equal 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 stays with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells fast and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you pick the modern look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and accentuates the elegance of your window.
And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the family room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their innate beauty? Thanks to our advanced computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom craft your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
