Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Picking long-lasting plantation shutters in Boston is a lasting in your residence. It’s a detailed process where you’ll spend a good amount of time agreeing on the right style, material and color.

When you work with a skilled professional like Louver Shop of Boston, you’ll have a friendly area designer to assist you during the process. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind that you have lifetime warranties for parts and service.

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

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 varies based on what model of window you are fitting 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 commonly demands 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 hung accurately, they can help decrease utility expenses while keeping your home cozier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a big window, they can be cumbersome and difficult to maneuver alone. And you may wind up scraping your new plantation 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 troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Installing shutters can be irritating and take a lot of time, especially when you’re missing hardware. Or when the frames are too big or too small and you can’t put up 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 plantation shutter expert like Louver Shop of Boston.
