Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Picking long-lasting plantation shutters in Spartanburg is a long-term investment in your house. It’s a detailed process where you’ll use a good amount of time agreeing on the ideal style, material and color.

When you collaborate with a experienced pro like Louver Shop of Western Carolina, you’ll have a friendly community designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. Plus, you’ll be at peace knowing there is lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re doing it by yourself, you may be tempted to scrimp and hang the shutters yourself. It cannot be that difficult, right? Nonetheless, there are several reasons why you shouldn’t cut corners on installation.

4 Benefits of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Accurate Measurements

There are two ways to install shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure can vary depending on what model of window you are adding them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re wrong, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t match your window. If the frame doesn’t match, you’ll be unable to hang your shutters. We can do free professional measurements to help you steer clear of this huge frustration.

2. Offers Tight, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit closely to your window, and this commonly demands professional assistance. Not only does this make them look great in your house, it also helps stop light leaks and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are installed properly, they can help decrease utility expenses while keeping your house more comfortable throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Damaging Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a big window, they can be heavy and tricky to work with alone. And you may result in scratching your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t right, your shutters won’t be level. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Western Carolina, all our installers are factory-trained to help you stay away from these issues.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Installing shutters can be a hassle and time consuming, especially when you’re missing 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 skip this by partnering with a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of Western Carolina.
