Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Ordering quality plantation shutters in Detroit is a lasting in your residence. It’s an in-depth process where you’ll spend a long amount of time agreeing on the best model, material and color.

When you partner with a skilled expert like Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, you’ll be paired with a friendly local designer to help you throughout the process. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. Also, you’ll be at peace knowing there is lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re working on it on your own, you may be enticed to skimp and hang the shutters yourself. It cannot be that difficult, right? However, there are several reasons why you shouldn’t skimp on professional installation.

4 Perks of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Ensures Correct Measurements

There are two methods for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type varies based on what type of window you are fitting them to. If you completed your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t match, you’ll be unable to install your shutters. We can do free expert measurements to help you keep clear of this major hassle.

2. Offers Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit closely to your window, and this usually necessitates pro support. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps block light leaks and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up properly, they can help reduce utility expenses while keeping your family more comfortable throughout the year.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a big window, they can be cumbersome and difficult to work with alone. And you may result in damaging your new window treatments in the process. If the frame sections aren’t right, your shutters won’t be even. Or there could be gaps. At Louver Shop of Metro Detroit, all our installers are factory-trained to help you keep clear of these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Wasting Time

Installing shutters can be a hassle and eat up your free time, specifically 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 collaborating with a plantation shutter professional like Louver Shop of Metro Detroit.
