Are Shutters worth the money?

Posted on 14 October 2015

Yes, the reputation is deserved. Shutters can add value in three ways to your home on the Central Coast!

1. They add curb appeal as they can be seen from the street and instantly say "style" before anyone has entered your home.

2. Real Estate agents often talk about the "wow factor" when buyers walk into a home and Shutters on your windows in the main living area it certainly delivers the 'wow factor'. They are often listed as the features on a home for sale, right after "European kitchen appliances".

3. Terrific insulation both in summer and winter.

Are plantation shutters expensive?

If you are considering good quality plantation shutters on the Central Coast expect to pay anything from $400 to $600 a square metre. Other charges could be for bi-fold, sliding or anywhere else where it requires extra work and componentry. Aluminium Plantations Shutters are slightly more expensive than Timber Plantations Shutters or PVC Plantation Shutters.  When you consider your plantation shutters could last you 10 years or more it's worth investing in the best quality you can afford.

What's the cheapest shutters?

Often the huge price difference is due to the huge quality differences available.  At the cheaper end of the market expect hollow PVC made shutters that will not handle high heated windows.  They will not have solid internal support (like aluminium, which is found in the better quality Thermopoly Synthetic Shutters) A hot window over 35-40 degrees could see your shutters warp or bend.  Other issues with cheaper shutters are some can be made of chipboard wood and then covered with really thick paint.  A quick karate chop and the shutter may fall apart.  They are also very vulnerable if they get wet.  If you leave a window open they may swell up and burst and not be covered by the warranty.
