Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

4 Benefits of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Ensures Proper Measurements

There are two approaches for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation method varies based on what model of window you are adding them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re incorrect, 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 provide free pro measurements to help you steer clear of this major frustration.

2. Ensures Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit closely to your window, and this commonly requires professional help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps stop light leaks and enhances energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung correctly, they can help decrease energy expenses while keeping your home comfier throughout the year.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a large window, they can be cumbersome and tricky to maneuver on your own. And you may end up damaging your new plantation shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t precise, your shutters won’t be even. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Memphis, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Wasting Time

Hanging shutters can be a hassle and eat up your free time, specifically when you need to buy 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 partnering with a shutter expert like Louver Shop of Memphis.
