How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in San Antonio08/19/2015Tyler Jorgensen One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so happy they ask that because I have the chance 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 Antonio get substantial 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 taken care of. 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 makes sure that Polywood never warp or lose its color despite how high the San Antonio 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 transplanted from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a substantial addition to the house. Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in San Antonio 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 straight away. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase 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 remains with them long after they’ve gone home. How beautiful a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells quickly and one that stays on the market for a while.
