How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in Nashville08/19/2015Stefano Diotaiuti One of the questions homeowners frequently 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 have the chance to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Nashville receive 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). Plantation Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the US, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when properly maintained. As a matter of fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from sun damage. This makes sure that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color despite how high the Nashville 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 created to custom fit to your windows, they become a permanent fixture. Whether it’s Polywood or Ovation, these shutters cannot be moved 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 Nashville is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter. In 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 go up 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 beautiful 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 select the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and complements the elegance 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 innate elegance?
