How Plantation Shutters Maximize Home Values in Seattle
One of the questions homeowners frequently 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 many features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Seattle gain substantial returns on their window treatment investment when they resell their house, thanks to the durable, energy-efficient, and beautiful plantation shutters our experts 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 damaging sun rays. This ensures that Polywood never warp or lose its color regardless of how high the Seattle 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.
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 valuable addition to the house.
Interior Shutters Are Energy Efficient
No other window treatment in Seattle 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 from the get go. And real estate agents know that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell in no time.
Shutters Are Beautiful
When presenting the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression sticks with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells in no time and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you go with the modern look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and accentuates the elegance 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 beauty? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom craft your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
