Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing quality plantation shutters in Columbia is a long-term investment in your residence. It’s an in-depth process where you’ll use a good amount of time settling on the right style, material and color.

When you partner with a experienced pro like Louver Shop of Columbia, you’ll be paired with a friendly local designer to assist you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. Also, you’ll feel good knowing there is lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re handling it alone, you could be inclined to scrimp and install the shutters yourself. It shouldn’t be that challenging, right? However, there are a few reasons why you shouldn’t skimp on installation.

4 Benefits of Professional Installation for Plantation Shutters

 

1. Guarantees Correct Measurements

There are two procedures for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure can vary depending on what model of window you are fitting them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re incorrect, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t match your window. If the frame doesn’t match, it will be impossible to hang your shutters. We offer free professional measurements to help you keep clear of this huge hassle.

2. Provides Tight, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit tightly to your window, and this usually necessitates pro help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps end light leakage and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up accurately, they can help decrease heating and cooling costs while keeping your family cozier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

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

4. Helps You Avoid Wasting Time

Hanging shutters can be irritating and time consuming, especially when you need to buy 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 plantation shutter professional like Louver Shop of Columbia.
