How Plantation Shutters Increases Tampa’s Home Value

Eric Ramsey

One of the questions homeowners usually ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so happy they ask that because this allow me to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Tampa receive considerable 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).

Beautiful Polywood Shutters In Dining Room With Dark Paint


More than any other shutter on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when looked after. In fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from sun damage. This makes certain that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color no matter how warm the Tampa 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 transferred from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a key addition to the house.

Energy Efficient

No other window treatment in Tampa is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar 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 straight away. And real estate agents know that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell quicker.


When showing 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 beautiful a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that’s sells quickly and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you go with the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and complements the elegance of your window.
