Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

4 Pluses of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters

 

1. Provides Proper Measurements

There are two procedures for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type varies based on what model of window you are fitting them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t work, you’ll be unable to put up your shutters. We offer free professional measurements to help you steer clear of this huge hassle.

2. Provides Tight, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit tightly to your window, and this generally necessitates pro help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your residence, it also helps end light leakage and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung accurately, they can help reduce utility expenses while keeping your family cozier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a large window, they can be heavy and difficult to work with on your own. And you could end up damaging your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters won’t be level. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Columbia, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these problems.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Hanging shutters can be irritating and time consuming, especially when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t install your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up crooked, with gaps or uneven sides. You can skip this by partnering with a shutter pro like Louver Shop of Columbia.
