How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in Raleigh08/19/2015Blake Jarman 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 glad they ask that because this allows me to tell them about the many features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Raleigh gain real 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 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 regardless of how high the Raleigh 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. Interior Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Raleigh is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than an equal 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 immediately. And real estate agents know that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell faster. Shutters Are Beautiful When walking through the house with 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 in no time and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you select the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations ensure 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 beauty?
