How Plantation Shutters Maximize Hartford’s Home Value08/19/2015Holly Perron 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 II get to tell them about the various features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Hartford gain real 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 in the US, 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 despite how warm the Hartford 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 installed to custom fit to your windows, they become a permanent fixture. Whether it’s Polywood or Ovation, these shutters cannot be transplanted from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a substantial addition to the house. 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 rise and your house sell faster. 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 beautiful a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that’s sells fast and one that stays on the market for a year. Whether you go with the modern 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 beauty of your window.
