When David and I first bought this house, I was in Tampa and my only real perspective on our new home was from the online listing images and the videos that David sent me when he went to the showing. Site physically unseen, I made a list of all the things I wanted to do to the house, and the first item on the list was to add shutters. While I knew some of our projects would take some time, adding shutters would be a quick update that would instantly increase the curb appeal of our ranch.
Last fall, David and I started shopping for shutters, and we were immediately drawn to the style and color options from Vantage Shutters found at Lowe’s Home Improvement. I rarely shop in an actual store these days, so shopping online was a breeze. It was also incredibly easy to send David my favorite option to get his opinion before ordering. We opted for vinyl shutters for the minimal upkeep required and selected a traditional option in green to compliment our siding and existing accents.
Our Vantage shutters arrived quickly and came with all the necessary parts. I am pretty impatient when it comes to household projects and I wanted to have the shutters ready before our annual holiday party, so I took it upon myself to install the shutters myself. It was a quick installation process, only taking about an hour and a half total. We have four windows across the front of our house, so I installed 8 shutters total, being careful not to drill too hard or far into our vinyl siding. It was quick, easy, and I was giddy with excitement after I finished installing all 8.
The best part was that our Vantage Shutters came with everything needed to install the shutters. The only other tools I needed for the installation was a ladder and a drill, which we keep around the house. And because our shutters lined up exactly with our window length, installation didn’t even require me measuring. anything. It was truly a seamless process to install our Vantage Shutters.
Our experience with Vantage shutters was a no-brainer and an all-around terrific experience. We truly appreciated the ease of ordering and the accuracy in colors and styles and are incredibly pleased with the results. It was a simple upgrade that was cost-efficient, quick, and easy with an immediate impact.
