How Plantation Shutters Maximize Home Values in Cleveland08/19/2015Nate Gromen One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad they ask that because this allows me 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 Cleveland receive real 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). Plantation Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the industry, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when properly maintained. 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 no matter how warm the Cleveland 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 designed 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 valuable addition to the house. Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Cleveland is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter. As a matter of fact, 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 right away. 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 showing the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression stays with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells quickly 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 ensure that the final product matches your style and complements the beauty 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?
