How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in Kingsport08/19/2015Jacob Hayes One of the questions homeowners commonly 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 various features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Kingsport get real 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). Plantation Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the US, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. In fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from damaging sun rays. This makes sure that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color regardless of how warm the Kingsport 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 transplanted from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a key addition to the house. Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Kingsport is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than an equal 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 immediately. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase 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 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 craftsmanship and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and accentuates the charm 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 inherent beauty?
