The Benefits of Plantation Shutters

Aug 13, 2017

Plantation Shutters Phoenix, AZPlantation shutters take their name from the grand plantations in the American South. They were, however, first used in ancient Greece as louvered window coverings made of marble that added security and protection from severe weather. Today’s plantation shutters are becoming increasingly popular.

Customers in states like Arizona, Nevada, California, and Utah purchase them for their ability to reduce the intensity of the sun. By reducing the damaging effects of UV rays, they add extra protection against the fading of furniture and floors. Other major benefits of plantation shutters include:

Ease of Use: The separate controls on plantation shutters make it possible to open the top and bottom louvers separately, which is particularly good for transitioning from day to night.

Curb Appeal: These shutters are viewable from the outside as well and are known to add curb appeal to any home.

Increased Property Value: Adding plantation shutters makes your home more appealing to potential buyers as they stay with the home when it is sold.

Privacy: The added level of privacy also adds more security. Blocking visual access is a deterrent to would-be criminals who try to scope out your possessions.

Sound Barrier: Plantation shutters add an extra level of noise protection against sounds coming through your windows.

We are extremely pleased with our whole experience with this company. From sales to installation, everyone we dealt with was courteous and professional. They delivered exactly as promised from the quote, to the installation and did a great job! The shutters took our house from beautiful to stunning! Highly recommend this company!
Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.
The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.
Southwest Blinds was wonderful to work with. The communication was excellent. All the employees from sales to the installers were professional and kind. Answered all our questions. I highly recommend them.
Southwest Blinds and Shutters provided a remarkable product for a great value! We are extremely pleased with the job done. James is a true professional who stands behind his company on all levels. We would highly recommend Southwest Blinds & Shutters and are looking forward to having the rest of our windows done with them.
Fast and professional. Super efficient and detail-oriented. Very pleased with the service they provided. Don’t hesitate to schedule them for your blind and shutter needs.
They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!
The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
