How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in Miami08/19/2015David White One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m about to leave their house is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when 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 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 sun damage. 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 moved 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 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 from the get go. And real estate agents are well aware of 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 fast and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you decide on the modern look of Polywood shutters or the classic richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make certain 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 family room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their innate charm?
