Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Picking quality plantation shutters in Charlotte is a lasting in your home. It’s a thorough process where you’ll use a good amount of time determining the right style, material and color.

4 Benefits of Professional Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Proper Measurements

There are two practices for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation method can vary depending on what type of window you have. If you did your own measurements and they’re wrong, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, you won’t be able to hang your shutters. We offer free pro measurements to help you avoid this huge inconvenience.

2. Offers Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit closely to your window, and this generally requires expert assistance. Not only does this make them look good in your home, it also helps end light leaking through and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are installed correctly, they can help lower utility expenses while keeping your family comfier throughout the months.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a expansive window, they can be cumbersome and difficult to move alone. And you could wind up marring your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t precise, your shutters won’t be even. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Charlotte, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Hanging shutters can be irritating 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 install your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up lopsided, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by collaborating with a shutter pro like Louver Shop of Charlotte.
