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).
Plantation Shutters Are Durable
More than any other shutter on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when looked after. Actually, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from sun damage. This ensures 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 stand out from 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 valuable addition to the house.
Polywood Shutters Are 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.
Shutters Are Beautiful
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 sells quickly and one that stays on the market for a year. Whether you pick the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make sure 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 dining room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their natural elegance? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom make your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
