One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because I'llget 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 Salt Lake City gain great 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 on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when properly maintained. As a matter of fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from sun damage. This makes sure that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color no matter how hot the Salt Lake City 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 valuable addition to the house.
Plantation Shutters Are Energy Efficient
No other window treatment in Salt Lake City 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 instantly. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value go up and your house sell quicker.
Shutters Are Beautiful
When showing the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression sticks with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells fast and one that stays on the market for a while. Whether you pick the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and enhances the beauty 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 innate beauty? Thanks to our cutting edge computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom design your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
