Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing quality plantation shutters in Gulf Coast is a lasting in your residence. It’s a thorough process where you’ll spend a long amount of time agreeing on the right type, material and color.

When you collaborate with a skilled expert like Louver Shop of Gulf Coast, you’ll receive a friendly area designer to support you throughout the process. 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 working on it on your own, you may be tempted to skimp and install the shutters yourself. It can’t be that difficult, right? Still, there are a couple of explanations why you shouldn’t skimp on professional installation.

4 Pluses of Professional Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Accurate Measurements

There are two practices for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type depends on what model of window you have. If you completed your own measurements and they’re incorrect, you’ll find out the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, you’ll be unable to install your shutters. We can do free pro measurements to help you steer clear of this huge frustration.

2. Ensures Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit snugly to your window, and this usually demands expert help. Not only does this make them look good in your house, it also helps end light leaks and enhances energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung properly, they can help lower heating and cooling costs while keeping your family comfier throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a large window, they can be bulky and hard to move alone. And you could result in scraping your new window treatments in the process. If the frame sections aren’t right, your shutters will be crooked. Or there may be gaps. At Louver Shop of Gulf Coast, all our installers are factory-trained to help you keep clear of these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Hanging shutters can be a hassle and take a lot of time, specifically when you’re missing hardware. Or when the frames are too big or too small and you can’t hang your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up not straight, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by working with a plantation shutter pro like Louver Shop of Gulf Coast.
