How Plantation Shutters Maximize Atlanta’s Home Value08/19/2015Dan Taylor One of the questions homeowners frequently ask me as I’m about to leave their house is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad they ask that because I have the chance 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 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). Durable More than any other shutter in the US, 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 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 stand out from other window treatments, adding to your home’s value. 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 moved from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a valuable addition to the house. 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 right away. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell quicker. 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’s sells quickly and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you pick the in vogue 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 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 35+ years of experience, we custom craft your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
