Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Picking long-lasting plantation shutters in Orlando is a lasting in your house. It’s a thorough process where you’ll take a good amount of time agreeing on the right style, material and color.

When you work with a experienced professional like Louver Shop of Orlando, you’ll be paired with a friendly community designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. Also, you’ll feel good knowing there is lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re working on it alone, you can be enticed to cut a few corners and install the shutters on your own. It shouldn’t be that hard, right? Still, there are a few arguments why you shouldn’t skimp on having them installed professionally.

4 Perks of Professional Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Ensures Correct Measurements

There are two approaches for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type can vary depending on what type of window you are adding them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re wrong, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t match, you won’t be able to put up your shutters. We provide free expert measurements to help you keep clear of this major annoyance.

2. Ensures Tight, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit snugly to your window, and this typically demands expert help. Not only does this make them look good in your residence, it also helps end light leaking through and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are installed accurately, they can help decrease energy costs while keeping your residence more comfortable throughout the year.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a big window, they can be heavy and hard to move by yourself. And you may result in scraping your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t right, your shutters won’t be even. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Orlando, all our installers are factory-trained to help you stay away from these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Hanging shutters can be irritating and take a lot of time, especially when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t install your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up crooked, with gaps or uneven sides. You can avoid all of this by working with a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of Orlando.
