One of the questions homeowners usually ask me as I’m about to leave their house is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad they ask that because I have the chance to tell them about the various features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Honolulu receive real 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. 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 warm the Honolulu 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 designed to custom fit to your windows, they become a permanent fixture. Whether it’s Polywood or Ovation, these shutters cannot be transferred from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a key addition to the house.
Plantation Shutters Are Energy Efficient
No other window treatment in Honolulu 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 from the get go. And real estate agents know 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 sticks 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 year. Whether you decide on the modern look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom designs and installations ensure that the final product matches your style and complements the beauty of your window.
And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the living room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their inherent elegance? Thanks to our advanced computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom design your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
