Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Ordering quality plantation shutters in Macon is a lasting in your residence. It’s a detailed process where you’ll use a lengthy amount of time determining the ideal type, material and color.

When you work with a knowledgeable expert like Louver Shop of Macon, you’ll be paired with a friendly local designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. Plus, you’ll be at peace knowing you have lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re working on it on your own, you may be tempted to scrimp and install the shutters on your own. It can’t be that challenging, right? Still, there are a few reasons why you shouldn’t skimp on professional installation.

4 Perks of Pro Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Accurate Measurements

There are two approaches for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation method can vary depending on what kind of window you have. If you completed your own measurements and they’re wrong, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t work with your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, it will be impossible to install your shutters. We offer free pro measurements to help you avoid this major frustration.

2. Offers Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters need to fit tightly to your window, and this commonly requires pro support. Not only does this make them look good in your residence, it also helps block light leaks and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung accurately, they can help reduce utility expenses while keeping your family more comfortable throughout the year.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a big window, they can be heavy and difficult to move by yourself. And you might end up scratching your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t precise, your shutters will be crooked. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Macon, all our installers are factory-trained to help you keep clear of these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Hanging shutters can be frustrating and take a lot of time, especially when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect 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 plantation shutter pro like Louver Shop of Macon.
