One of the questions homeowners frequently ask me as I’m about to leave their house is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because this allows me to tell them about the various features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Fort Myers receive 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 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 sun damage. This makes sure that Polywood never warp or lose its color despite how warm 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 created 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.
Plantation 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. 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 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 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 a year. Whether you decide on the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and enhances the charm of your window.
And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the dining room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their inherent beauty? Thanks to our cutting edge computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom make your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
