How Plantation Shutters Maximize Home Values in Colorado Springs

Gary Harding

One of the questions homeowners commonly 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 have the chance to tell them about the many features of plantation shutters that make them a valuable asset when selling a home. I’ve seen homeowners in Colorado Springs get substantial 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).

Plantation Shutters Are Durable

More than any other shutter in the industry, Polywood shutters last over 50 years when looked after. Actually, the paint finish we bake on these shutters has UV inhibitors that protects the material from the sun’s damaging rays. This ensures that Polywood never warp or lose its color no matter how hot the Colorado Springs 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 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 considerable addition to the house.

Polywood Shutters Are Energy Efficient

No other window treatment in Colorado Springs 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 straight away. And real estate agents realize that. That’s why you’ll see your home’s value go up 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 beautiful a window treatment is can make a difference between a house that sells quickly and one that stays on the market for a year. Whether you decide on 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 elegance of your window.

And what about those specialty-shaped windows like an arch in the living room or a French door? Will the shutters take away from their natural beauty? Thanks to our state-of-the-art computer technology and 40+ years of experience, we custom craft your shutters to look great and function effortlessly.
