4 Advantages of Professional Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Guarantees Accurate Measurements

There are two ways to install shutters—interior and exterior mounts. The installation procedure varies based on what kind of window you are adding them to. If you completed your own measurements and they’re inaccurate, you’ll learn the hard way the frame doesn’t fit your window. If the frame doesn’t fit, it will be impossible to install your shutters. We can do free pro measurements to help you avoid this big frustration.

2. Offers Secure, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit snugly to your window, and this typically necessitates expert support. Not only does this make them look fantastic in your house, it also helps stop light leaks and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are hung correctly, they can help decrease energy bills while keeping your family more comfortable throughout the seasons.

3. Avoids Scratching Your Shutters

If you’re hanging shutters on a large window, they can be heavy and tricky to work with alone. And you may end up scraping your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t precise, your shutters won’t be level. Or there could be gaps. At Louver Shop of Kansas City, all our installers are factory-trained to help you stay away from these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Wasting Time

Installing shutters can be irritating and eat up your free time, specifically when you’re missing 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 prevent this by working with a plantation shutter expert like Louver Shop of Kansas City.
