Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Picking premium plantation shutters in Nashville is a lasting in your house. It’s an in-depth process where you’ll use a long amount of time determining the right style, material and color.

When you collaborate with a knowledgeable expert like Louver Shop of Nashville, you’ll have a friendly community designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to seamless professional installation. In addition, you’ll have peace of mind that there is lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re handling it on your own, you may be tempted to scrimp and put up the shutters yourself. It can’t be that hard, right? Nonetheless, there are a couple of arguments why you shouldn’t cut corners on professional installation.

4 Benefits of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Correct Measurements

There are two methods 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 discover the hard way the frame doesn’t fit 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 keep clear of this big hassle.

2. Ensures Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit snugly to your window, and this generally necessitates professional assistance. Not only does this make them look great in your home, it also helps stop light leakage and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up accurately, they can help reduce utility bills while keeping your home more comfortable throughout the months.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re putting shutters on a large window, they can be bulky and tricky to maneuver on your own. And you could result in scratching your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t precise, your shutters won’t be level. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Nashville, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Frustration

Hanging shutters can be a hassle and take a lot of time, especially when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are too big or too small and you can’t hang your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up not straight, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by partnering with a plantation shutter expert like Louver Shop of Nashville.
