Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Ordering long-lasting plantation shutters in Pittsburgh is a lifelong in your home. It’s a thorough process where you’ll spend a long amount of time settling on the best model, material and color.

When you collaborate with a experienced professional like Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, you’ll receive a friendly community designer to assist you throughout the process.

When you’re doing it alone, you may be tempted to skimp and hang the shutters without help. It can’t be that difficult, right? Nonetheless, there are a couple of arguments why you shouldn’t scrimp on having them installed professionally.

4 Pluses of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Accurate Measurements

There are two methods for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation type depends on what type of window you are adding them to. If you took your own measurements and they’re incorrect, you’ll find out the hard way the frame doesn’t fit your window. If the frame doesn’t match, you won’t be able to install your shutters. We offer free expert measurements to help you steer clear of this major frustration.

2. Offers Tight, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit closely to your window, and this typically requires pro help. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps block light leaking through and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are put up correctly, they can help lower heating and cooling bills while keeping your home comfier throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a expansive window, they can be heavy and tricky to maneuver alone. And you could result in marring your new window treatments 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 Pittsburgh, all our installers are factory-trained to help you avoid these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Installing shutters can be a hassle and eat up your free time, particularly when you’re missing hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t hang 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 plantation shutter pro like Louver Shop of Pittsburgh.
