How much does it cost to install Plantation Shutters?
Plantation shutters will cost on average $200-1,200 per pair installed with materials depending on the materials, size and style. Is this a DIY project? It sure can if you have some basic tools and some help. However, if you do choose to have a professional installer do the job, you can expect the price for installation to go down as you purchase more units to install.
- Cost can add up quickly, especially if you’re a novice and have never attempted a Plantation Shutter installation before. I would strongly recommend you hire a licensed and Insured carpenter to perform the installation for you.
- Be sure to have a copy of the Plantation Shutters Manufacturer’s recommended installation requirements before starting, to make sure your project doesn’t end up costing you more money in the long-run.
Plantation Shutters – Pricing and Installation Cost Checklist
- Get at least 3-5 estimates before hiring a contractor — estimates are typically free, unless it’s a service call for a repair.
- Expect Plantation Shutter prices to fluctuate between various companies – each and every company have different operation expenses and over-head.
- Try to get prices in late Fall, early winter – you should expect aggressive pricing discounts by waiting for a contractor’s down season.
- Try to budget and additional 7-15% more on top of what our calculator gives out – I.e; difficult configurations, patterns, etc. The additional complexity of your window will add to the Plantation Shutter costs.
- Visit every supply house that sell your particular brand of Plantation Shutters and try to negotiate a better price with each supplier – I save on average 20%.
- Remember, there are multiple styled homes in the U.S – from: Contemporary, colonial, cape-cod style, ranch, bungalow, victorian, etc. So keep that in mind and try to budget a little more, before starting your Plantation Shutters project.
