4 Perks of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Accurate Measurements

There are two procedures for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation method can vary depending on what model of window you are fitting them to. If you completed your own measurements and they’re wrong, you’ll find out the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t work, you won’t be able to put up your shutters. We provide free expert measurements to help you avoid this huge frustration.

2. Provides Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit snugly to your window, and this usually requires professional help. Not only does this make them look good in your residence, it also helps block light leaks and enhances energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up properly, they can help lower utility bills while keeping your house comfier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a big window, they can be cumbersome and hard to work with by yourself. And you might wind up scratching your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters won’t be level. Or there may be gaps. At Louver Shop of Colorado, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these problems.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Hanging shutters can be a hassle and eat up your free time, 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 lopsided, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by partnering with a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of Colorado.
