4 Cost Benefits of Locust Grove Plantation Shutters

(Window Coverings, Home Improvement and Decor) Permanent link   All Posts

Plantation shutters in Locust Grove are still relatively popular. They’re not used as much as blinds and other types of window coverings and are often used more of aesthetic, but there are many reasons to consider them for your home. Let’s focus on the cost benefits for today. Here are four cost benefits to getting Locust Grove plantation shutters for your home.

They Are Extremely Easy to Install and Maintain

Some window coverings require professional to install them to your home. This isn’t the case with plantation shutters. You can do it all yourself, saving you a fortune. But this is something you can do with blinds and curtains, right?

Well, another cost saving is in the maintenance. The shutters require very little maintenance, whether you install them inside or outside your home. They will need repainting to keep them weather-proofed every now and then (if you have exterior shutters) but they don’t need the regular cleaning and washing that other window coverings need.

Lifetime Guarantee Available with Wood Plantation Shutters in Locust Grove

Curtains, blinds, and many other types of coverings require replacing at some point in their life. They’re not designed to last the lifetime of the building. That’s not the case with plantation shutters, especially wood. When you have them installed, you will usually get a lifetime guarantee on the handiwork. If there is ever a problem, you can get the shutters replaced for free.

There are some requirements to make sure the Locust Grove plantation shutters get the guarantee. You will need to do some maintenance work, but as we’ve see this is less work than with other window coverings.

Low Your Heating and Cooling Bills

While window coverings help to deal with light, they can also deal with hot and cool air. This is definitely the case with plantation shutters. They way that they are designed, they will allow air flow while minimising the amount of hot air escaping your home in the colder months. At the same time, they minimise the amount of hot air getting in during the summer months.

You won’t need to use your heating or air con as much. While you have lower installation and maintenance costs, you’ll also find your energy bills reduce.

As well as minimising air loss, you will also keep the heat out through the glass. The wood will absorb the heat from the sun, keeping your home cool throughout the summer months. If you want to allow the heat in or need to allow some air out, you can simply open the shutters completely to maximise the flow.

Protect the Inside of Your Home from UV Rays

When UV rays get through the window regularly, they will cause damage to other items in the home. They can lighten walls and other doors and they may cause damage to your photos and artwork. These will all need repairing and replacing, costing you money.

By getting plantation shutters in Locust Grove, you avoid this unnecessary cost. The slats will allow light into the home, while keeping the direct rays out. You still feel some of the heat and get light, without the damage that you will need to repair and rectify.

 It’s time to consider alternative window options for the home. Locust Grove plantation shutters offer a range of benefits, especially when it comes to the cost. They may initially be more expensive than blinds and curtains, but they offer long term savings that you can’t get anywhere else.
