Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Ordering quality plantation shutters in Wichita is a lifelong in your residence. It’s a detailed process where you’ll take a long amount of time determining the right style, material and color.

When you collaborate with a experienced pro like Louver Shop of Wichita, 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 have peace of mind that you’ll receive lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re handling it by yourself, you might be inclined to cut a few corners and put up the shutters on your own. It cannot be that challenging, right? Nonetheless, there are a few reasons why you shouldn’t skimp on installation.

4 Perks of Expert Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Correct Measurements

There are two ways to install shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type depends on what kind of window you have. If you completed your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll find out the hard way the frame doesn’t match your window. If the frame doesn’t match, it will be impossible to install your shutters. We can do free professional measurements to help you steer clear of this big inconvenience.

2. Ensures Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit snugly to your window, and this typically requires professional help. Not only does this make them look good in your home, it also helps block light leaking through and enhances energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up correctly, they can help decrease utility bills while keeping your family cozier throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a big window, they can be cumbersome and difficult to work with on your own. And you might end up marring your new 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 Wichita, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these problems.

4. Helps You Avoid Wasting Time

Installing shutters can be a hassle and eat up your free time, specifically 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 lopsided, with gaps or uneven sides. You can prevent this by collaborating with a window treatment expert like Louver Shop of Wichita.
