man sitting in living room with shuttersWith help from online videos and experts on social media, these days, it seems like you can do just about anything yourself — from cutting your own hair to putting together a 5-star meal. But as the DIY (do it yourself) movement becomes more common, so, too, do examples of how some things are simply best when left to the professionals. Take plantation shutters in Austin, for example. It may seem like a good idea to save a few bucks and put your know-how to the test, but unless you really know what you’re doing, a self-install can end up costing you more time and money in the long run. This is one job that’s best to call an expert for!

The Professional Touch Your Home Needs

Still find yourself wondering “Can I install a shutter myself?” Well, the answer is… yes, you probably could, but it’s usually just not the best idea. We and a few of our customers have done the numbers.  Often once the do it yourselfer orders the shutters and frames with some of the features they want (and the surcharges that come with them), they find out that they are not able to get EXACTLY what they want.  So, they might sacrifice the one wide shutter panel they wanted, for two narrower panels in the same opening (because that is all the on-line company offers).  Then after shipping is paid, they find they pad nearly as much, if not more than they would have for our local company to come out and handle everything, turn-key with a transferable lifetime warranty. Trusting Southern Shutters Shades and Blinds with your window treatments means you are getting only the highest-quality products and materials around.

We also offer our own line of wood and faux wood blinds as well as trusted Hunter Douglas products. And everything is always customized in the color, finish, and hardware that will suit your home best! Those are features you just can’t get with a weekend shutter project.
