One of the questions homeowners frequently ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad they ask that because I'llget to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Orlando get considerable 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. In fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from damaging sun rays. This ensures that Polywood never warp or lose its color despite how hot the Orlando 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 valuable addition to the house.
Plantation Shutters Are Energy Efficient
No other window treatment in Orlando is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter. Actually, 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 go up and your house sell quicker.
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 beautiful 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 select the modern look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and complements 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 natural charm? Thanks to our cutting edge computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom make your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
