How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in New York City08/19/2015Matt Thelander One of the questions homeowners frequently ask me as I’m walking out their door is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so happy they ask that because this allows me to tell them about the numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a must-have when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in New York City receive 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). Plantation Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the US, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when looked after. As a matter of fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from the sun’s damaging rays. This ensures that Polywood never warp or lose its color regardless of how hot the New York City 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 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. Interior Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in New York City 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 straight away. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value rise and your house sell faster. Shutters Are Beautiful When walking through the house with an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression sticks with them long after they’ve gone home. How charming a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells in no time and one that stays on the market for a year. Whether you decide on the in vogue look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom manufacturing and installations make sure 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 living room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their inherent elegance?
