How Plantation Shutters Add To Sacramento’s Home Value08/19/2015Curtis Orton One of the questions homeowners frequently ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when they ask that because II get 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 Sacramento get real 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 on the market, 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 the sun’s damaging rays. This makes sure that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color regardless of how warm the Sacramento 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 mounted 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 substantial addition to the house. Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Sacramento is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter. Actually, 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 straight away. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell in no time. 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 elegant 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 pick the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the timeless richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and enhances the elegance of your window.
