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 method can vary depending on what kind of window you are adding them to. If you completed your own measurements and they’re incorrect, you’ll find out 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 professional measurements to help you avoid this major inconvenience.

2. Provides Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

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

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a big window, they can be bulky and difficult to maneuver alone. And you may result in scraping 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 Boston, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these problems.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Installing shutters can be irritating and eat up your free time, especially when you’re missing hardware. Or when the frames are too big or too small and you can’t hang your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up lopsided, with gaps or uneven sides. You can avoid all of this by partnering with a shutter expert like Louver Shop of Boston.
