Houston Plantation Shutter Prices
One of our most frequently asked questions during our in-home consultation is “How much do plantation shutters cost?” The final price is difficult to estimate without knowing the exact specifications of the project at hand. For each individual quote, we will need to take exact measurements for your windows, decide if extra installation is needed, and if you want any additional features (like hidden tilt rods).
Uniquely-shaped windows and frame style can affect the final price. However, here are some basic estimates on our most popular shutter lines.
Prices are based on a standard panel covering a 3’ x 6’ window and can help you build a an approximate idea. Keep in mind that all our shutters are custom-made in the US to fit your specific windows, so final prices may vary.
What affects shutter prices?
No matter what style you pick, Sunburst Shutters offers long-lasting, beautiful shutters that are custom-built to fit your particular windows. In fact, it’s the “custom-built” part that makes providing a quote on the phone a difficult task to achieve.
So, what factors influence pricing?
Type of Shutter
Many plantation shutters are constructed with a faux-wood compound that is sturdy, energy efficient, and water resistant. Our StudioTM shutters are our lowest-priced option but aren’t as easily customized as our other plantation shutters. Polywood® shutters are built from a top-of-the-line faux wood material that won’t fade, warp, or chip, but has an energy-efficient insulation system and includes different options for wood grain finishes, frames, and louver sizes. Timberland® shutters are made from poly material as well but are stained to match your natural wood finishings. Our Ovation® shutters are handmade from solid hardwoods and built to last.
Window size and shapes
The estimates have shown reflect pricing for 3’ x’ 6’ panels, but some windows aren’t this “standard” size. We will measure your windows at your in-person consultation in order to get your window’s precise measurements, including any unique measurements or angles that we need to take into account. We want your shutters to seamlessly fit your windows, which is why your shutters are custom-made to fit your windows’ measurements -- and why each estimate is personalized. We can also fit odd-shaped windows, like circular or rake windows, which may add some cost compared to traditional window shutters. We will check to decide if any additional installation is needed due to wall and frame width.
A few other options that affect the final cost of shutters include features like hidden tilt rods or special framing. Other options like louver size do not affect the pricing.
