How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in Hartford
One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because I'llget to tell them about the many features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Hartford gain substantial 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 in the US, 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 sun damage. This makes certain that Polywood never warp or lose its color despite how hot the Hartford 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 mounted 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 considerable addition to the house.
Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient
No other window treatment in Hartford is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a comparable 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 increase 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 remains with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming 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 decide on the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the classic richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations ensure that the final product matches your style and enhances 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 natural elegance? Thanks to our advanced computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom make your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
