How Plantation Shutters Maximize Home Values in Boston08/19/2015Holly Perron 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 various features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Boston get real 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). Plantation Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the industry, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. Actually, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from the sun’s damaging rays. This makes certain that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color despite how warm the Boston 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 transplanted from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a valuable addition to the house. Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Boston 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 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 showing the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression remains with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells in no time and one that stays on the market for a while. Whether you select the contemporary look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom designs 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 family room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their innate charm?
