How Plantation Shutters Add To Phoenix’s Home Value08/19/2015Greg Arnett One of the questions homeowners usually 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 many features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Phoenix get 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). 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 the sun’s damaging rays. 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. 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. Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Phoenix 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 instantly. 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. Beautiful When presenting the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression remains with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that’s sells fast and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you select the modern look of Polywood shutters or the classic richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and complements 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 natural elegance? Thanks to our advanced computer technology and 35+ years of experience, we custom create your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
