Shutter Repair Cost Guide

While shutters are an optional addition to the home, they can meet a number of needs. Shutters might help you create a more traditional, welcoming feel to the exterior of your home, they can increase the property value of the structure, they can provide insulation and they can give you the privacy you need. Unfortunately, shutters can also be damaged by strong winds or just normal use, and repair is not something that most homeowners can tackle on their own. Find out what to expect when it comes to professional shutter repair costs.

Average Costs of Professional Shutter Repair

Before getting quotes for professional shutter repair, many homeowners like to know more about the average costs of this service. While there are a number of factors that can influence the total cost, many of which will be covered in detail below, you can expect to pay anywhere between $215 and $307 for professional shutter repair.

Indoor Shutter Repair vs. Outdoor Shutter Repair

One of the biggest factors in terms of repair cost will depend on whether your shutters are exterior or interior models. Generally, the only repair that interior shutters need is to have the hinges replaced or to reduce stiffness in the hinges, both of which are minor repairs that will take well under an hour to complete. Exterior shutters, on the other hand, may have more extensive damage and therefore cost more to repair.

Shutter Materials

The type of material your shutters are made from will certainly play a role in the total cost of repair. Shutters made from vinyl and plastic can have their slats easily replaced, but wooden shutters take more time and money to repair. If you have shutters in an unusual color or material, matching any replacement parts will generally be more difficult for professionals.

Factors Influencing The Cost of Repair

Along with the factors listed above, there are a few things that can increase the cost of shutter repair. If your shutters are located on exterior second-story windows, for example, reaching them will require additional equipment. In addition, extensive damage may mean that shutter replacement is the best option, which may take less time but cost homeowners more money in total.
