Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Picking premium plantation shutters in Southeast Texas is a lasting in your residence. It’s a thorough process where you’ll spend a good amount of time settling on the right type, material and color.

When you collaborate with a skilled professional like Louver Shop of SE Texas, you’ll have a friendly community designer to support you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind that you’ll receive lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re handling it by yourself, you might be inclined to cut a few corners and put up the shutters on your own. It cannot be that hard, right? Nonetheless, there are several arguments why you shouldn’t skimp on professional installation.

4 Advantages of Pro Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Accurate Measurements

There are two methods for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure depends on what kind of window you are adding them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re wrong, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t fit your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, you’ll be unable to put up your shutters. We can do free expert measurements to help you keep clear of this big annoyance.

2. Ensures Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit closely to your window, and this often requires expert help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your home, it also helps end light leakage and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up accurately, they can help reduce utility costs while keeping your house cozier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a expansive window, they can be heavy and tricky to maneuver on your own. And you may end up scratching your new window treatments in the process. If the frame sections aren’t right, your shutters won’t be level. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of SE Texas, all our installers are factory-trained to help you keep clear of these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Putting up shutters can be frustrating and take a lot of time, particularly when you’re missing hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t install your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up crooked, with gaps or uneven sides. You can skip this by collaborating with a window treatment professional like Louver Shop of SE Texas.
