One of the questions homeowners commonly 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 various features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Kingsport receive real 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).
Plantation Shutters Are Durable
More than any other shutter in the industry, 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 makes sure that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color no matter how high 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 instantly. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell faster.
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 in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and complements 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 charm? Thanks to our cutting edge computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom make your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
