Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing premium plantation shutters in Myrtle Beach is a lifelong in your home. It’s an in-depth process where you’ll spend a lengthy amount of time determining the best style, material and color.

When you work with a knowledgeable professional like Louver Shop of Myrtle Beach, you’ll have a friendly local designer to help you every step of the way. From a free, in-home consultation to smooth professional installation. In addition, you’ll feel good knowing you’ll receive lifetime warranties for parts and service.

When you’re doing it alone, you can be inclined to cut a few corners and install the shutters without help. It shouldn’t be that challenging, right? Nonetheless, there are several explanations why you shouldn’t skimp on having them installed professionally.

4 Pluses of Pro Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Correct Measurements

There are two approaches for installing shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation method varies based 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 work, it will be impossible to install your shutters. We provide free professional measurements to help you avoid this big inconvenience.

2. Provides Seamless, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters should fit tightly to your window, and this usually requires pro assistance. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps block light leakage and boosts energy efficiency. When your shutters are installed properly, they can help lower utility costs while keeping your residence cozier throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a large window, they can be cumbersome and tricky to move on your own. And you might result in scratching 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 Myrtle Beach, 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 take a lot of time, specifically when you need to buy hardware. Or when the frames are too big or too small and you can’t put up 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 Myrtle Beach.
