What do Plantation Shutters Cost?

What do Plantation Shutters Cost?

Now you know how stylish and effective plantation shutters are, the next question is: how much do they cost? The retail prices of plantation shutters depends upon:

  • The cost of the materials
  • Labour expenses to assemble the shutters
  • The profit chosen by the manufacturer

Many retailers offer high quality plantation shutters in multiple sizes and designs from well-know manufactures. These shutters can cost more because of the skill involved and the reputation of the manufacturer behind them. They will cost more than those found at home improvement stores.

Woodworking classes and online tutorials have made plantation shutters an achievable DIY project. They can be made for a fraction of the price of retail plantation shutters by removing the labour expenses, transport costs, and of course the profit margin. The other benefit of doing so is full control over material, colour, and size options. Despite more modern materials, the most popular plantation shutters are those made from the same wood the original plantation shutters were made from – retaining their traditional and functional appeal.

American basswood is found in central and easterly parts of the United States – states such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan all have large basswood supplies. Basswood is a popular hardwood choice for the manufacture of plantation shutters because of its ease to work with, its smooth texture, and its comparatively low cost. Basswood’s high demand makes it easy to find a provider at affordable prices.

If you’re planning on making them yourself you’ll need a few more materials other than the wood itself. Besides the obvious screws for framing the casings, and hinges for the swinging panels, magnets would come in handy. They allow the shutters to be kept neatly shut when they’re not open wide without the need for a lock of some description – much more pleasing to the eye. Springs, washers and other tension hardware is required to allow the slats to be opened and closed using the central vertical column.

Plantation shutters are evidently beneficial. They increase energy efficiency through having fantastic insulation properties, and allow the user to effortlessly adjust light intensity and privacy through moving the tilt rod. Being so highly desirable, plantation shutters can add a surprising amount to a homes value, and can be used as a major selling point.
