Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing premium plantation shutters in Charleston is a long-term investment in your residence. It’s a thorough process where you’ll take a long amount of time determining the ideal model, material and color.

When you work with a experienced expert like Louver Shop of Charleston, you’ll receive a friendly local designer to help you throughout the process. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. Also, you’ll have peace of mind that you have lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re doing it on your own, you may be inclined to scrimp and hang the shutters yourself. It shouldn’t be that difficult, right? Nonetheless, there are a few arguments why you shouldn’t cut corners on installation.

4 Pluses of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Accurate Measurements

There are two approaches for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation method varies based on what kind of window you are fitting them to. If you completed your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t match your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, you won’t be able to put up your shutters. We provide free pro measurements to help you steer clear of this huge hassle.

2. Ensures Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit snugly to your window, and this generally necessitates professional support. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your home, it also helps end light leaking through and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung correctly, they can help reduce energy bills while keeping your family more comfortable throughout the months.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a large window, they can be bulky and tricky to move on your own. And you could wind up scratching your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t precise, your shutters won’t be level. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Charleston, all our installers are factory-trained to help you keep clear of these problems.

4. Helps You Avoid Wasting Time

Hanging shutters can be a hassle and time consuming, particularly when you need to buy hardware. Or when the frames are the wrong size 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 collaborating with a shutter professional like Louver Shop of Charleston.
