How Plantation Shutters Increases Destin’s Home Value08/19/2015Eric Ramsey One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad they ask that because this allow me 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 Destin gain 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). Durable More than any other shutter in the US, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when properly maintained. Actually, 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 high the Destin temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters a leader among 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 valuable addition to the house. Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Destin 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 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 faster. Beautiful When showing 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 charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that’s 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 manufacturing and installations make sure that the final product matches your style and complements the elegance of your window.
