How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in Detroit08/19/2015Steve Hill One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m about to leave their house 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 priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Detroit receive considerable 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 in the US, 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 sun damage. This ensures that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color regardless of 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. Plantation 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 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 right away. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell in no time. Shutters Are Beautiful When walking through the house with an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression remains 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 while.
