    What do you mean by renovate. If you mean just having shutters serviced and basic repairs there's many options I use Black on White in Bristol, in the UK. If however you mean re-polishing and re-coating etc then that's become far more expensive, the main company in the UK went out of business 2 or 3 years ago.

    I doubt that any "professional" help would be worth the investment in terms of a better sales price.

    As Ian says, apart from a few shutter repair places, glass renovation, simple re-cementing excepted, is already a lost art.
