How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in Fort Myers08/19/2015Charlie Cole and Brady Parker 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 numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Fort Myers get considerable returns on their window treatment investment when they resell their house, thanks to the durable, energy-efficient, and beautiful plantation shutters our experts installed. Here’s how to get your plantation shutters return on investment (ROI). Interior Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the industry, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when properly maintained. Actually, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from the sun’s damaging rays. This makes sure that Polywood never warp or lose its color despite how high the Fort Myers 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 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 key addition to the house. Interior Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Fort Myers 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 from the get go. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell in no time. Shutters Are Beautiful When showing 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 elegant a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells quickly and one that stays on the market for a while.
