How Plantation Shutters Add To Home Values in New Brunswick08/19/2015Mike Horn One of the questions homeowners usually ask me as I’m about to leave their house is: “Do plantation shutters increase home value?” I’m so happy they ask that because I'llget 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 Brunswick get considerable 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 industry, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when properly maintained. As a matter of fact, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from sun damage. This ensures that Polywood doesn’t warp or lose its color despite how warm the New Brunswick 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 valuable addition to the house. Plantation Shutters Are Energy Efficient No other window treatment in New Brunswick 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 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 in no time. Shutters Are Beautiful When presenting 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 elegant 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 select the modern look of Polywood shutters or the exquisite richness of Ovation wood shutters, our custom craftsmanship and installations make certain that the final product matches your style and enhances 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 inherent beauty?
