How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in Miami

August 19, 2015

One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so glad they ask that because this allows 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 Miami gain great 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).

Interior Shutters Are Durable

More than any other shutter on the market, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when looked after. In fact, 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 doesn’t warp or lose its color despite how warm the Miami temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters a leader among other window treatments, adding to your home’s value.

Shutters Are A Permanent Fixture

Since plantation shutters are installed 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 considerable addition to the house.

Interior Shutters Are Energy Efficient

No other window treatment in Miami is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than an equal 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 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 faster.

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 elegant a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells quickly and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you decide on the modern look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and accentuates the beauty 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? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom make your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
