Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

4 Pluses of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Ensures Accurate Measurements

There are two practices for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type depends on what type of window you are adding them to. If you did your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll find out the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t work, it will be impossible to hang your shutters. We provide free pro measurements to help you keep clear of this big inconvenience.

2. Offers Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit tightly to your window, and this typically requires professional support. Not only does this make them look good in your home, it also helps block light leaking through and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up accurately, they can help reduce utility costs while keeping your family cozier throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a expansive window, they can be heavy and difficult to maneuver by yourself. And you might wind up marring your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters won’t be even. Or there could be gaps. At Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth, all our installers are factory-trained to help you stay away from these problems.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Installing shutters can be irritating and time consuming, particularly when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t put up your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up crooked, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by collaborating with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of Dallas/Fort Worth.
