August 19, 2015

One of the questions homeowners usually ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so happy they ask that because I'llget to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Detroit get great 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 in the industry, 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 won’t warp or lose its color no matter how high the Detroit 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 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.

Interior Shutters Are Energy Efficient

No other window treatment in Detroit is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar 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 straight away. 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 stays 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 a while. Whether you select the modern 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 accentuates the elegance of your window.

And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the dining room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their innate charm? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom create your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
