One of the questions homeowners frequently ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because this allows me to tell them about the many features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Atlanta receive 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 in the industry, 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 sun damage. This ensures that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color despite how warm the Atlanta 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 mounted to custom fit to your windows, they become a permanent fixture. Whether it’s Polywood or Ovation, these shutters cannot be transferred 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 Atlanta is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter. As a matter of 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 straight away. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell faster.
Shutters Are Beautiful
When walking through the house with 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 quickly and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you select the contemporary 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 complements the beauty of your window.
And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the living room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their natural charm? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom craft your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
