How Plantation Shutters Maximize Indianapolis’s Home Value08/19/2015Bill Burke 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 I have the chance 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 Indianapolis gain considerable returns on their window treatment investment when they resell their house, thanks to the durable, energy efficient, and beautiful plantation shutters we 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. As a matter of fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from sun damage. This makes sure that Polywood never warp or lose its color despite how warm the Indianapolis temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters stand out from other window treatments, adding to your home’s value. Permanent Fixture Since plantation shutters are designed to custom fit to your windows, they become a permanent fixture. Whether it’s Polywood or Ovation, these shutters cannot be transplanted 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 Indianapolis is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than an equal 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 right away. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell quicker. 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 charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that’s sells quickly and one that stays on the market for a year. Whether you select the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the classic richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom designs and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and accentuates the charm of your window. And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the dining room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their inherent charm? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 35+ years of experience, we custom design your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
