Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing quality plantation shutters in Savannah is a long-term investment in your home. It’s a thorough process where you’ll use a lengthy amount of time agreeing on the right type, material and color.

When you partner with a experienced professional like Louver Shop of Savannah, you’ll have a friendly local designer to support you throughout the process. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. Also, you’ll be at peace knowing you have lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re working on it alone, you can be tempted to cut a few corners and put up the shutters on your own. It can’t be that hard, right? However, there are several explanations why you shouldn’t scrimp on installation.

4 Pluses of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Ensures Accurate Measurements

There are two ways to install shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure depends on what model of window you are fitting them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re incorrect, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t work, you’ll be unable to hang your shutters. We provide free expert measurements to help you avoid this huge annoyance.

2. Offers Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit tightly to your window, and this usually demands pro help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your home, it also helps end light leaking through and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up correctly, they can help lower energy costs while keeping your family more comfortable throughout the months.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a expansive window, they can be heavy and tricky to work with alone. And you could result in damaging your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t right, your shutters won’t be level. Or there could be gaps. At Louver Shop of Savannah, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Putting up shutters can be irritating and take a lot of time, specifically when you need to buy 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 crooked, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by partnering with a plantation shutter pro like Louver Shop of Savannah.
