How Plantation Shutters Add To Charlotte’s Home Value08/19/2015Neil Blackwelder 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 happy they ask that because this allow me to tell them about the various features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Charlotte 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). Durable More than any other shutter in the industry, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. Actually, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from sun damage. This makes sure that Polywood never warp or lose its color regardless of how high the Charlotte temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters stand out from other window treatments, adding to your home’s value. 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 moved from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a valuable addition to the house. Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Charlotte is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a comparable 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 instantly.
