Shutters - Frequently asked questions
How much will shutters cost?
Depending on the size of your windows and the product you choose, the cost of shutters can vary. It is impossible to give an estimate without measurements of the height and width of your windows. We can visit you to measure your windows, show you samples and leave you with the quotation.
What happens at the survey request?
One of our experienced fitters will visit you at your home, measure your windows, and show you a range of shutter samples and offer advice if needed. We can give you costs for different options and will list this on the quotation if required. The whole process usually takes between 20 - 30 minutes and we offer these appointments at a time to suit you, including evenings and where possible, weekends.
What colours and stains are available?
We have a vast range of colours and stains for you to choose from. For our full selection of what is available for each product please see our Colour Range.
What louvre/slat size should I choose?
We generally use the size of your window to guide us as to what louvre size we would recommend. Large louvres work well on larger windows as they allow more light to come through. Smaller louvres allow more privacy as the slat sizes are smaller and closer together. You will be able to view the different sizes during your home visit and can compare each size.
How do I order and what do I have to pay up front?
Just call us to confirm your order and we will confirm the style, colour and price with you to ensure everything is correct. We then take a 50% deposit which can be paid by Cash, Cheque or Bank Transfer. The final 50% is taken on the day of installation.
How long to my shutters take to be made?
Your shutters take between 6-8 weeks is from the date of order to delivery to us. We update you during that time to let you know the estimated week of arrival and contact you nearer the time to arrange a suitable fitting date.
Can I fit my own shutters?
We do offer a supply only option but do not usually recommend that you fit them yourself as our fitters are fully qualified carpenters and always ensure your shutters are fitted perfectly.
How do I clean my shutters?
Our shutters are practically maintenance free. Simply dust them regularly and if necessary clean with a damp cloth/sponge.
My windows are not quite perfect squares, can I still have shutters?
Many windows are not exactly perfect, where this is the case we fit the shutters using small side battens or frames which ensure the shutter fits correctly and looks straight.
