How Plantation Shutters Add To Honolulu’s Home Value08/19/2015Darren Wong 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 glad they ask that because this allow me 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 experts installed. Here’s how to get your plantation shutters return on investment (ROI). 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 makes certain that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color no matter how high the Honolulu 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. 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 key addition to the house. 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 rise and your house sell in no time. Beautiful When walking through the house with 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’s sells fast and one that stays on the market for a while. 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 enhances the beauty of your window.
