One of the questions homeowners commonly 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 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 professionals installed. Here’s how to get your plantation shutters' return on investment (ROI).
Interior Shutters Are Durable
More than any other shutter on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. In fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from the sun’s damaging rays. This ensures that Polywood never warp or lose its color regardless of how high the Tampa 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 transferred from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a key addition to the house.
Plantation Shutters Are 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. As a matter of 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 straight away. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell quicker.
Shutters Are Beautiful
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 sells quickly and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you choose the contemporary look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and accentuates the charm of your window.
And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the living room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their inherent charm? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom design your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
