Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Picking quality plantation shutters in Atlanta is a lasting in your house. It’s an in-depth process where you’ll spend a good amount of time agreeing on the ideal model, material and color.

When you partner with a experienced pro like Louver Shop of Atlanta, you’ll have a friendly area designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. Also, you’ll have peace of mind that there is lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re doing it alone, you can be enticed to cut a few corners and hang the shutters yourself. It shouldn’t be that challenging, right? However, there are a few reasons why you shouldn’t cut corners on installation.

4 Perks of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Ensures Correct Measurements

There are two methods for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure varies based on what type of window you are fitting them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re wrong, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t fit your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, it will be impossible to install your shutters. We offer free pro measurements to help you steer clear of this big frustration.

2. Offers Tight, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit snugly to your window, and this typically demands pro help. Not only does this make them look good in your house, it also helps stop light leaking through and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are installed properly, they can help reduce utility expenses while keeping your house cozier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a large window, they can be bulky and tricky to work with by yourself. And you may result in marring your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters won’t be level. Or there could be gaps. At Louver Shop of Atlanta, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Installing shutters can be a hassle and take a lot of time, particularly when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are the wrong 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 shutter pro like Louver Shop of Atlanta.
