Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

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

When you collaborate with a experienced professional like Louver Shop of Columbus, you’ll have a friendly local designer to support you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. In addition, you’ll be at peace knowing you’ll receive lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re handling it alone, you may be inclined to scrimp and install the shutters on your own. It shouldn’t be that difficult, right? Nonetheless, there are several arguments why you shouldn’t scrimp on professional installation.

4 Advantages of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Correct Measurements

There are two practices for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type can vary depending on what kind of window you are adding them to. If you completed your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, you’ll be unable to hang your shutters. We provide free expert measurements to help you avoid this major frustration.

2. Offers Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit snugly to your window, and this often necessitates professional help. Not only does this make them look great in your home, it also helps block light leakage and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung correctly, they can help decrease energy costs while keeping your house more comfortable throughout the months.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a expansive window, they can be heavy and difficult to maneuver alone. And you may result in scraping your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters won’t be even. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Columbus, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Putting up shutters can be irritating and take a lot of time, specifically when you’re missing hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t hang your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up lopsided, with gaps or uneven sides. You can skip this by collaborating with a shutter professional like Louver Shop of Columbus.
