How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in Boise08/19/2015Spencer Madsen 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 glad they ask that because I have the chance 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 Boise gain 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 looked after. 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 certain that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color no matter how hot the Boise 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 moved from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a key addition to the house. Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Boise 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 immediately. 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 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 too long. Whether you pick 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 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 natural beauty?
