How Long Does Plantation Shutter Installation Take?

How Long Does Plantation Shutter Installation Take?

At Shenandoah Shutters, we install every set of plantation shutters we sell. Because we’re so experienced with plantation shutter installation — and we know the windows of the area and the shutters we build — you can have confidence that your shutters are installed properly and efficiently. The question is how long that takes. 

While the installation itself is likely to take perhaps the least amount of time, the process of ordering your shutters to plantation shutter installation is a different story. Typically, the process from start to finish is about 4-7 weeks from order placement. Here’s why:

In-Home Consultation

Our in-home estimate is not required for plantation shutter purchase, but it is certainly recommended. With our in-home estimates, a sales consultant will arrive with sample panels so you can see how the plantation shutters will look in your own home. This will need to be scheduled based on your availability and ours, but once the day comes, it typically takes only an hour or so.

Hand-Crafted Plantation Shutters

Our shutters are made by hand in our workshop in Richmond, Virginia. We want to make sure they’re beautifully crafted and made to last, which can take time. The crafting of the shutters themselves will take up the most time when it comes to the process of your plantation shutters; but is well worth the wait for plantation shutters that are crafted just for your home, according to the measurements of your window and your style preferences.

Specialty or Custom Shutters

We also offer plantation shutters made with custom woods such as oak, cherry, or mahogany upon request from the customer. We also offer specialty shutters such as shutters with a sunburst arch. These shutters, however, take slightly longer than our standard shutters due to having the right supplies in stock and the extra labor required for the design. We want to make sure our custom shutters are also made to our usual standard of excellence, and our customers find them to be worth the wait.

Our Availability and Yours

The project also depends on our workload and availability. During peak season for plantation shutter orders — especially spring and summer — certain projects might take longer than they would in fall and winter simply due to the demand. Your availability also plays a role. When scheduling a day for the installation itself, you’ll need to find something that works within your schedule, as well as ours.

Plantation Shutter Installation

Once the date is set and the day finally comes, the actual installation will likely only last for an hour or two. It depends largely on the types of plantation shutters you order, as well as how many you plan to have installed. Old window treatments will need to be removed and the new shutters will then be installed. They will be secured to the window for durability. Before the team leaves, your shutters will not only be installed but you will know how to use them.

Before the job begins, you’ll be given a quote that should give you not just the price of the work but an estimated amount of time it will take for your shutters to be installed.

Donna Plummer

“The members of Shenandoah Shutters are extremely professional. The first contact came in and measured the windows that were to be done. The second contact was with the guys who installed the shutters. In and out and they look wonderful. Can’t be more pleased with these shutters.”

Janet, Lynchburg, VA

“This company is fantastic. From the first contact we had with them (visiting their showroom) to the final installation, they are #1 professionals. After we visited the showroom, the salesperson came to our home, showed us a sample shutter, and made recommendations (and gave different styles) for our windows. After we accepted the contract, she made an appointment to come out and do exact measurements. We love our new shutters, and every element of this contract could not have been better. They even left a jar of VA peanuts!”

Jessica, Richmond, VA

“We love hearing from our clients – Here’s a review we received this week……..”My shutters were delivered and installed this morning. From start to finish the installation took about 90 minutes. I am beyond impressed with the high quality craftsmanship and over the moon with how gorgeous they are. I’d also like to note, that everyone from Marcia in sales, Jodi in billing, and the installers, whose names I didn’t catch, are supremely professional. As a Richmonder, I love that the money from my purchase stays in the local economy, too. I will be singing this company’s praises for years to come. Thank you, Shenandoah Shutters!” Jessica – Richmond, VA”
