How Plantation Shutters Increases Home Values in San Diego08/19/2015Tyson Williams One of the questions homeowners usually ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because this allows me to tell them about the many features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in San Diego get 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). Interior 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 damaging sun rays. This makes certain that Polywood won’t warp or lose its color regardless of how hot the San Diego 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 key addition to the house. Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in San Diego is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a similar wood shutter. As a matter of 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 instantly. 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 presenting the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression stays 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 a year. Whether you select the in vogue 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 elegance of your window.
