Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing quality plantation shutters in Huntsville is a long-term investment in your home. It’s a thorough process where you’ll use a lengthy amount of time agreeing on the right model, material and color.

When you collaborate with a skilled pro like Louver Shop of North Alabama, you’ll have a friendly community designer to support you during the process. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind that you’ll receive lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re working on it on your own, you could be inclined to skimp and install the shutters on your own. It can’t be that hard, right? Nonetheless, there are several explanations why you shouldn’t cut corners on installation.

4 Pluses of Professional Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Proper Measurements

There are two practices for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type can vary depending on what kind of window you have. If you completed your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t match your window. If the frame doesn’t match, you won’t be able to put up your shutters. We provide free professional measurements to help you keep clear of this huge frustration.

2. Provides Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit snugly to your window, and this often requires expert assistance. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your home, it also helps stop light leakage and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up properly, they can help lower utility expenses while keeping your house more comfortable throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a big window, they can be bulky and tricky to move alone. And you may result in scratching your new window treatments in the process. If the frame sections aren’t right, your shutters won’t be level. Or there may be gaps. At Louver Shop of North Alabama, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Hanging shutters can be a hassle and time consuming, particularly when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t put up your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up lopsided, with gaps or uneven sides. You can skip this by collaborating with a shutter expert like Louver Shop of North Alabama.
