Can You Install Plantation Shutters Yourself?

Choosing long-lasting plantation shutters in Lake Charles is a lasting in your house. It’s an in-depth process where you’ll take a long amount of time determining the best type, material and color.

4 Benefits of Skilled Installation for Plantation Shutters


1. Provides Accurate Measurements

There are two practices for installing 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 wrong, you’ll discover the hard way the frame doesn’t match your window. If the frame doesn’t match, you won’t be able to put up your shutters. We offer free pro measurements to help you avoid this big annoyance.

2. Provides Tight, Energy-Efficient Fit

Plantation shutters have to fit closely to your window, and this often demands expert support. Not only does this make them look great in your house, it also helps block light leaking through and improves energy efficiency. When your shutters are installed accurately, they can help lower energy costs while keeping your family cozier throughout the months.

3. Avoids Marring Your Shutters

If you’re installing shutters on a big window, they can be bulky and tricky to maneuver on your own. And you may end up marring your new shutters in the process. If the frame sections aren’t correct, your shutters will be crooked. Or there might be gaps. At Louver Shop of Louisiana, all our installers are factory-trained to help you stay away from these troubles.

4. Helps You Avoid Hassle

Installing shutters can be irritating and take a lot of time, specifically when you need to get hardware. Or when the frames are the incorrect size and you can’t install your new shutters. Or when your shutters end up crooked, with gaps or uneven sides. You can skip this by collaborating with a window treatment pro like Louver Shop of Louisiana.
