How Plantation Shutters Maximize Denver’s Home Value08/19/2015Gary Harding One of the questions homeowners usually 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 allow me 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 Denver gain great 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 taken care of. 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 hot the Denver temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters a front runner compared to other window treatments, adding to your home’s value. Permanent Fixture Since plantation shutters are created to custom fit to your windows, they become a permanent fixture. Whether it’s Polywood or Ovation, these shutters cannot be transferred 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 Denver is as energy efficient as plantation shutters. Our Polywood shutter insulates up to 70% better than a comparable wood shutter. In 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 from the get go. And real estate agents are well aware of that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell quicker. Beautiful When showing the house to an assessor, a real estate agent, or a home buyer, the first impression remains with them long after they’ve gone home. How elegant a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that’s sells fast and one that stays on the market for too long. Whether you select the contemporary look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom designs 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 family room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their natural charm?
