Why Choose a Local Shutter Company?

There are many reasons why choosing a local shutter company can be the better option for everyone involved!

Support Local

When you use a local shutter company you are supporting a local business. This business hires local people providing jobs and a boost to the local economy.  This means that the money you spend is going back into your local economy and not somewhere far away.

The UK government has been encouraging people to shop locally whenever possible as they look to save the high street and boost local job prospects in the UK.

Reduced Lead Times for Plantation Shutters

Another great reason to use a local shutter company is that we can reduce the time it takes to deliver and install your shutter. Rather than waiting for a shutter to travel over from England, Europe, or even further abroad, we simply drive your shutter up the road!

This also means that we are responsible for your order the whole way! We make your shutter, we deliver it, and we install it. This way you do not have to potentially mess about with third parties contracted by the manufacturer, everything is done by our own team!

Lower Environmental Impact

By having your shutters delivered by a local shutter company you can reduce the environmental impact of your purchase. This is because your shutter is not travelling a great distance to reach your home.

So rather than ordering a shutter that has to travel sometimes from the other side of the world just to your house, you can order one that only has to travel from our factory in Ballymena.

We are so proud of our local craftsmanship that we even offer a 5 Year Guarantee on all orders to show our commitment to only providing the top-quality in Plantation Shutters.

Are Shutters Worth The Cost?

Shutters provide a stylish and durable window covering that will bring you control over the light in your room. They also help with temperature control, providing insulation over your window which can help reduce energy bills.

How Much Should I Expect To Pay For Shutters?

All of our Shutters are made to measure for each customer. This means the cost can vary depending on your windows and the style of shutters you choose.

Do Shutters Increase Home Value?

As Shutters are built into your window frame they become a permanent fixture of the house. This means they can contribute to raising the appraisal value of your home should you wish to sell.

What Are The Best Shutters To Have?

We have three types of Shutters. Full Height, Tier on Tier, and Café Style. Within these there can also be minor differences depending on your needs as they are made specifically for your window. This means the best type will be the one that suits you, your home, and your needs the best.

How Long Do Shutters Last?

As with all blind types continual use over time will eventually cause wear on Shutters. They are very durable however and can last for decades if they are properly taken care of. Here are our top tips for shutter care
