How Plantation Shutters Increases Oklahoma City’s Home Value08/19/2015Tyler Jorgensen One of the questions homeowners commonly ask me as I’m leaving a consultation is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I get so excited when 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 Oklahoma City gain considerable 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 sun damage. This ensures that Polywood never warp or lose its color no matter how hot the Oklahoma City temperatures get. And it is this durability that makes plantation shutters stand out from other window treatments, adding to your home’s value. 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 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 Oklahoma City 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 know that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value increase and your house sell faster. 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 charming 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 decide on the modern look of Polywood shutters or the classic richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom designs and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and complements the charm 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? Thanks to our cutting edge computer technology and 35+ years of experience, we custom design your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
