Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Ordering quality plantation shutters in Baltimore is a lasting in your home. It’s a detailed process where you’ll spend a good amount of time agreeing on the best style, material and color.

When you work with a experienced pro like Louver Shop of Maryland, you’ll have a friendly local designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to precise professional installation. Plus, you’ll feel good knowing you have lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re handling it alone, you could be inclined to cut a few corners and install the shutters yourself. It can’t be that hard, right? Nonetheless, there are several arguments why you shouldn’t scrimp on installation.

4 Perks of Professional Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Correct Measurements

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

2. Ensures Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit closely to your window, and this typically demands expert help. Not only does this make them look good in your house, it also helps end light leaking through and enhances energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up correctly, they can help lower heating and cooling bills while keeping your residence more comfortable throughout the year.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a large window, they can be heavy and tricky to move alone. And you might result in 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 Maryland, all our installers are factory-trained to help you stay away from these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Putting up shutters can be a hassle and eat up your free time, 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 not straight, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by partnering with a shutter professional like Louver Shop of Maryland.
