4 Benefits of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Correct Measurements

There are two practices for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure varies based on what type of window you are adding them to. If you did your own measurements and they’re incorrect, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t match your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, you won’t be able to put up your shutters. We can do free professional measurements to help you steer clear of this major hassle.

2. Provides Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit snugly to your window, and this commonly demands expert help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your home, it also helps block light leaks and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung correctly, they can help decrease utility costs while keeping your home cozier throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a expansive window, they can be cumbersome and tricky to maneuver on your own. And you may wind up scratching your new window treatments in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters won’t be even. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Cincinnati, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Wasting Time

Installing shutters can be frustrating and time consuming, particularly when you’re missing hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size 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 working with a shutter pro like Louver Shop of Cincinnati.
