Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing premium plantation shutters in Birmingham is a lifelong in your house. It’s a detailed process where you’ll spend a lengthy amount of time determining the right style, material and color.

When you work with a experienced expert like Louver Shop of Birmingham, you’ll receive a friendly local designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. Plus, you’ll be at peace knowing there is lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re working on it alone, you could be inclined to cut a few corners and install the shutters yourself. It cannot be that challenging, right? Nonetheless, there are a few arguments why you shouldn’t scrimp on having them installed professionally.

4 Perks of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters

 

1. Provides Proper 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 took 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 match, it will be impossible to hang your shutters. We provide free expert measurements to help you avoid this huge inconvenience.

2. Ensures Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit tightly to your window, and this commonly demands pro support. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your residence, it also helps stop light leakage and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up properly, they can help reduce energy bills while keeping your house more comfortable throughout the year.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a expansive window, they can be bulky and tricky to move on your own. And you may result in 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 Birmingham, all our installers are factory-trained to help you keep clear of these problems.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Installing shutters can be irritating and time consuming, particularly when you need to buy hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t hang your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up not straight, with gaps or uneven sides. You can avoid all of this by working with a shutter professional like Louver Shop of Birmingham.
