How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in Cincinnati08/19/2015Lisa Renee Nieberding 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 numerous features of plantation shutters that make them a priceless when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Cincinnati get real returns on their window treatment investment when they resell their house, thanks to the durable, energy-efficient, and beautiful plantation shutters our professionals installed. Here’s how to get your plantation shutters return on investment (ROI). Plantation Shutters Are Durable More than any other shutter in the industry, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when taken care of. In 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 Cincinnati 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 transplanted from one house to another. And as part of the property, they are assessed as a substantial addition to the house. Plantation Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in Cincinnati is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than an equal 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 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 in no time. Shutters Are Beautiful When showing 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 sells in no time and one that stays on the market for a while.
