One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad 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 Phoenix receive great 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).
Interior Shutters Are Durable
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 sure that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color regardless of how hot the Phoenix temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters a leader among other window treatments, adding to your home’s value.
Shutters Are A Permanent Fixture
Since plantation shutters are installed 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 Phoenix 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 immediately. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell in no time.
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 elegant a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells fast and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you pick the modern look of Polywood shutters or the classic richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and complements the charm 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 elegance? Thanks to our advanced computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom create your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
