How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in Charlotte

August 19, 2015

One of the questions homeowners usually 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 I have the chance to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Charlotte 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 taken care of. 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 warm the Charlotte 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 moved from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a considerable addition to the house.

Plantation Shutters Are 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 immediately. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value go up and your house sell quicker.

Shutters Are Beautiful

When presenting the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression stays with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming 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 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 inherent beauty? Thanks to our advanced computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom design your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
