How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in Salt Lake City08/19/2015Matt Thelander One of the questions homeowners usually ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because I'llget 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 Salt Lake City gain considerable returns on their window treatment investment when they resell their house, thanks to the durable, energy-efficient, and beautiful plantation shutters our professionals 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 properly maintained. Actually, 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 never warp or lose its color no matter how hot the Salt Lake City 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 transplanted 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 Salt Lake City 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 immediately. 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. Shutters Are Beautiful When showing 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 elegant a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells fast and one that stays on the market for a year. Whether you select the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and enhances 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 inherent charm?
