Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing long-lasting plantation shutters in Albany is a long-term investment in your house. It’s an in-depth process where you’ll spend a good amount of time determining the best style, material and color.

When you collaborate with a skilled expert like Louver Shop of South Georgia, you’ll have a friendly local designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. Plus, you’ll be at peace knowing you have lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re working on it by yourself, you could be tempted to scrimp and put up the shutters on your own. It cannot be that hard, right? Still, there are several explanations why you shouldn’t skimp on professional installation.

4 Perks of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Correct Measurements

There are two methods for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure can vary depending on what model of window you have. If you completed your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll find out the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t work, you’ll be unable to install your shutters. We can do free pro measurements to help you steer clear of this major annoyance.

2. Provides Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit snugly to your window, and this usually necessitates pro help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps stop light leakage and enhances energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up accurately, they can help decrease utility bills while keeping your family comfier throughout the months.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a expansive window, they can be bulky and tricky to work with by yourself. And you might end up scratching your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters won’t be level. Or there could be gaps. At Louver Shop of South Georgia, all our installers are factory-trained to help you stay away from these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Putting up shutters can be irritating and take a lot of time, particularly when you need to buy hardware. Or when the frames are the wrong size and you can’t install your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up not straight, with gaps or uneven sides. You can skip this by partnering with a plantation shutter professional like Louver Shop of South Georgia.
