How Plantation Shutters Add To Gainesville’s Home Value

Eric Ramsey

One of the questions homeowners frequently ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so happy they ask that because I have the chance to tell them about the various features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Gainesville gain considerable returns on their window treatment investment when they resell their house, thanks to the durable, energy efficient, and beautiful plantation shutters we installed. Here’s how to get your plantation shutters return on investment (ROI).

Crisp Polywood Plantation Shutters In Dining Room With Dark Paint


More than any other shutter on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. As a matter of fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from the sun’s damaging rays. This makes certain that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color no matter how warm the Gainesville 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.

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 considerable addition to the house.

Energy Efficient

No other window treatment in Gainesville is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than an equal wood shutter. In 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 right away. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell quicker.


When walking through the house with an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression sticks with them long after they’ve gone home. How beautiful a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that’s sells quickly and one that stays on the market for a while. Whether you select the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and accentuates the elegance 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 natural elegance? Thanks to our cutting edge computer technology and 35+ years of experience, we custom make your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
