Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Ordering premium plantation shutters in Camden is a lasting in your home. It’s a detailed process where you’ll spend a long amount of time agreeing on the best model, material and color.

When you collaborate with a skilled pro like Louver Shop of New Jersey, you’ll receive a friendly community designer to help you throughout the process. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. Also, you’ll have peace of mind that you’ll receive lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re doing it alone, you could be inclined to cut a few corners and hang the shutters on your own. It cannot be that challenging, right? Still, there are several explanations why you shouldn’t skimp on professional installation.

4 Pluses of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Ensures Proper Measurements

There are two approaches for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type varies based on what type of window you are adding them to. If you did your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t fit your window. If the frame doesn’t match, it will be impossible to hang your shutters. We can do free expert measurements to help you keep clear of this big hassle.

2. Ensures Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit closely to your window, and this generally necessitates pro assistance. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps end light leaks and enhances energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung correctly, they can help lower energy costs while keeping your house cozier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a large window, they can be cumbersome and tricky to move on your own. And you could end up damaging your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t precise, your shutters won’t be even. Or there could be gaps. At Louver Shop of New Jersey, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Putting up shutters can be irritating and time consuming, particularly when you need to buy hardware. Or when the frames are too big or too small and you can’t install your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up not straight, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by collaborating with a window treatment pro like Louver Shop of New Jersey.
