Average Cost for Wood Plantation Shutters

When you picture plantation shutters, you’ll probably bring to mind wood shutters. These are the most classic model of interior shutters, and superior ones, like ones created by Louver Shop of Philadelphia use furniture-grade basswood. This wood is exceptionally light, making it a good solution for shutters on large windows in your living room, bedroom or any space with little humidity.

Based on national averages compiled by HomeAdvisor and HomeGuide, wood shutters usually run between $200–$400 per panel, or $400-$800 per standard 3’ x 5’ window. Your exact cost may be less or more, contingent upon your one-of-a-kind residence, its type of windows and its window sizes.

Average Cost for Polymer Shutters

Due to the material they’re crafted from, polymer plantation shutters are excellent for rooms with strong sunlight or high humidity. Polymer can weather these elements without drooping, cracking or fading, all while insulating up to three times better than wood.

But not all polymer shutters are similar. Some are empty, which means they’ll lose their shape as the years go by. At Louver Shop of Philadelphia, we make these shutters using a proprietary polymer that’s solid yet lightweight, providing you with many years of uncomplicated operation.

As these shutters are synthetic, they’re not as costly as wood. Polymer is around $200–$300 per panel, or $400-$600 per standard 3’ x 5’ window, based on national averages collected by HomeAdvisor and HomeGuide. You may end up being charged less or more, since expenses are based on window styles and measurements.

Other Costs to Consider When Creating Plantation Shutters

On average, many homeowners in the U.S. spend around $1,450 and $3,360 on plantation shutters for their home, according to HomeGuide. The national average is around $2,350.

An added expense to think about with plantation shutters is installation because these window treatments are permanently attached to the window frame. Other companies often bill you for installation, which can run as expensive as $100 hourly, according to HomeAdvisor. At Louver Shop of Philadelphia, you’ll get free standard installation from our factory-trained professionals.
