Have used The Great Shutter company twice. The first time was to install shutters at the back of my property and when it was time to do the front i did not consider going elsewhere. Their products are of excellent quality at very competitive prices. Communication from the company is excellent, Helen, Charlotte and Katie are so nice to talk to. Very helpful. 🙂 The guys carrying out the installation are professional, friendly and do a great job. They take all packaging away and leave your home looking like they've never been there. Apart from the stunning shutters expertly fitted of course! I would recommend The Great Shutter company to anyone looking to have shutters installed. 🙂

Have had The Great Shutter Company fit louvered shutters to the windows to the front of our home. From start to finish: Scott coming out to measure up, dealing with Charlotte for submitting our order, Scott and Alan comning out to fit the shutters, and finally Helen for our final payment, the process has been smooth and simple. We are really pleased with the time it has taken from ordering the shutters, to them being installed. They look great, feel great and make our home look great.

We received excellent service through out the whole process,the young man who came to measure and show us the range of shutters and gave his recommendations without any pressure and how long the process would take from start to finish was very helpful,when it came to the fitting the two men worked well together and had our shutters up in no time and the workmanship was second to none they were very tidy and left it spotless were they had been working,we are very glad we chose The Great shutter company not only were they the only company that didn’t try to pressure us they also gave the lowest quote for the best quality hard wood, I would highly recommend them.

We're delighted with our new shutters. The quality is fabulous and the service was great. The fitting team were friendly and courteous and cracked on with no fuss. Their work was of a very high standard and they took real pride in the finish. We did have a couple of hiccups (as can happen when you've got multiple trades working on a project) but everything was dealt with professionally and swiftly. We're very happy with the finished project. I just wish we'd had them fitted years ago.

I chose this company because they are local, and had great reviews. Having got our shutters fitted now, I can see why the rave reviews.Measuring up was done spot on time, very efficient and no heavy sales pitch!We ordered, the blinds arrived after an expected wait as they had to come from China.The fitter arrived on time, did a fantastic job, and cleared up after himself.Great job all round.I’m definitely happy to recommend them.

Dealing with The Great Shutter Company has been really easy from start to finish.From the initial consultation the communication was easy , especially after we had decided to change the design after the first consultation, everything was changed to our satisfaction before any ordering was done.There was roughly a Three month wait as the shutters were coming from China, but this is not the Companies fault and we were in no hurry.We were kept up to date once they knew they would be arriving into the UK.A mutual date was then set for fitting.On the arranged date the fitters arrived and it was amazing just how quick everything went together, and just one minor adjustment needed, which they resolved easily, all fitted in a morning.We had gone for split level shutters in the bay window, so we can either open the top or the bottom blinds independently of each other, so we can still open our top or bottom windows.They can also be fully opened so your windows are visible, which makes it easier for cleaning the windows on the inside.The back window design were for just straight down opening the full length in the middle like cupboard doors, making it easy again to reach to open or clean the window.Most of the rubbish was taken back with the fitters, with just a small amount for us to discard.What was a dim bay window and rear window with vertical blinds, it is now bright and light with the white shutters, plus the privacy aspect is a great improvement to our property.The communication carried on after having them fitted with a courtesy call around a month later to check everything was to our satisfaction.We really wouldn’t have any hesitation in recommending The Great Shutter Company to anyone thinking of making a change.Great quality at very competitive prices.

We had our shutters fitted just in time for Christmas and we are so pleased with them. We chose this company because they were local and didn’t use pushy sales techniques. They were easy to speak to over the phone and arrange the initial appointment. Measuring up and quoting was simple, included some really helpful advice to help us decide what we wanted. There was a bit of a wait for shutters due to the time of year but it was well worth it! Fitting was done on time, fitter was polite, talked through what he’d done and gave some advice too. The shutters have transformed the look of our victorian terrace and everyone who visits comments how smart they look. We feel we got great value and would recommend The Great Shutter Co wholeheartedly.

Excellent service, very friendly customer support team and quality products. The installation was very good and they could come a few weeks earlier than the scheduled date (as we were expecting to wait three months this was welcome!). All shutters are expensive but we felt these were better value than larger companies. Would recommend.

We purchased shutters with electronic black out blinds for a numbers of windows at our home. The shutters fit perfectly to our windows and are exactly as we hoped for. The installation was very efficient, with all rubbish taken away at the end of the day. I particularly appreciated the effort made to ensure that our blinds functioned correctly before finishing the installation: we had support in setting up all the controls, app and voice control to our liking.

The shutters by The Great Shutter company are absolutely gorgeous. Really high quality feeling and we had a great experience with the salesman Mike who was really helpful when he came to measure up and quote us. Then again with Jordan when he fit them for us. There was a really long wait and the delivery date was delayed by a couple of weeks but it seems everyone I knew ordering shutters had a long wait! Even still they were apologetic and helpful with tracking my order when it was late so I didn’t downgrade the stars.

Had shutters fitted throughout the house, cannot fault the service of The Great Shutter Co from my initial first telephone call to request a quote to the after sales care they provide a 1st class service. The shutters look stunning and have kept the house lovely and cool during the current heatwave. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone looking to have shutters installed.

Salesman came to my home with shutter sample, he was very knowledgeable and took the time to go through everything with me. The purchase was very straightforward and everyone I dealt with was very helpful. Our install was smooth and the installers hoovered and tidied up when they were finished. We love our shutters and have had no issues at all since install, however, we also have the peace of mind that if we do have any problem we can contact The Great Shutter Company and they will be happy to assist us.

Fantastic service all throughout the process.

Very polite and clean, they worked non stop to get the shutters fitted to an extremely high standard. Thoroughly pleased with the shutters. Would highly recommend.

We recently had plantation shutters fitted in our lounge and I must say the finish is far beyond our expectations. From the time we made contact with The Great Shutter Company right through to theinstallation we found them extremely helpful and informative. On the initial measuring visit they were first class and the samples that were shown to us allowed us to see the quality of the product we would receive. It was explained that a wait of sixteen weeks may be needed for the shutters to arrive, but in the end they came in twelve weeks. The two guys who came to fit them were so polite, knowledgeable and extremely clean with their work. We have been so impressed from start to finish that we are now thinking of having more installed. A great company to deal with

From the initial telephone request to The Consultant coming to measure and give advice and to the great fitting expertise resulting in such wonderful looking Plantation Shutters it has given us so much peace of mind in coping with the Southern Aspect, the effect is incredible. Yes we are up for Sale but its increased our likelihood of reaching an earlier sale and price advantage over much competition. its such a shame to leave these beautiful Shutters, but we will be contacting The Great Shutter Co again very soon when we move in to our new Apartment as their overall expertise we have never encountered before.

My experience of The Great Shutter Co., from start to finish, has been excellent. All staff members have been extremely helpful and professional throughout. The installation team have done a fantastic job and gave an overview of how best to care for my new shutters. I had a minor problem with one of the magnets on one of the shutters post installation that the team were incredibly quick to come and rectify. Extremely happy with price, quality and service provided and would really recommend.

Upstairs and downstairs shutters fitted at the front of the house, they were a fantastic company to deal with from start to finish, everything went very smoothly and apart from a slight delay due unfortunately to a combination of brexit and covid (which obviously was completely out of their control ) we are extremely pleased with the results. The whole process was well managed from initial design visit to the final fit , this is a great example of how this work should be done! It’s really nice to work with a company who do exactly what they say they will do when they say they will do it and at the agreed price. I have absolutely no qualms about recommending them and have already done so to my friends, thanks for a great job well done.

The Great Shutter Co., from start to finish, has been excellent. Getting an appointment was easy, with clear explanations of the different types of shutters and bringing samples to our home. The Great Shutter Co. quickly measured our windows for a custom fit.Once the shutters were ready, the fitters came at a convenient time. The gentlemen were very polite and respectful, leaving no mess and took the time to show me their work and how to use the shutters correctly.The final product looks fantastic and has surpassed our expectations in terms of quality and finish. I would highly recommend The Great Shutter Co. to anyone else.

    Alton Bay Window Shutters

    If you are lucky enough to have a great bay window, then you also know that dressing it with a window covering that let’s in lots of light and provides privacy at the same time can prove tricky. Many properties have a bay window in the lounge as well as the master bedroom and to compound the issue these tend to be street facing meaning you have the issue of passers-by looking in or from the houses opposite. By installing bay window shutters that solved this issue by adding a control split that allowed the top and bottom louvers to be controlled independently. Bay windows are a perfect match for plantation shutters as the shutters make the most of the space by following the natural lines of the bay window. We hope you agree they add that finishing touch.

    Alton Plantation Window Shutters

    Full height shutters really add a feature to any room and in this case provided a perfect solution to these large floors to ceiling windows. The fact that the room had multiple windows resulted in the room not only getting very hot but also provided issues in terms of privacy. The fact that the windows went to floor level meant passers-by could easily see into the lounge. By specifying the plantation shutters with a mid-rail this allowed the top and bottom bank of louvers to be controlled independently providing privacy below the rail and bouncing light into the room from the angled louvers above the mid-rail. To max the light choose large louvers and one of our ranges of white paint finishes.

    Alton Waterproof Bathroom Shutters

    If you want a waterproof product that can be placed right next to the shower, then look no further than our bathroom shutter range that has been manufactured to function in a wet environment. Manufactured from a composite ABS and married with marine grade stainless steel hardware our waterproof shutter range is made to stand the test of time. Most customers choose a pure white shutter to match their sanitary ware.

    Bay Window Shutters Alton. Is There Anything Better Than A Shutter In A Bay?

    Bay windows are beautiful but they do pose a problem when it comes to privacy as they are open to view from three sides normally. This is especially an issue in more residential areas where houses and walk ways are closer together. Alton’s modern housing estates and Victorian properties tend to suffer most and so shutters provide an ideal solution as you can adjust the bottom louvers for additional privacy whilst keeping the top louvers in an open position to maximise light. As we are normally sitting in living or dining rooms this provides all the privacy you would need.

    Conservatory Shutters Alton Amazingly Versatile Solution

    Conservatory roofs can be tricky things. Not on a horizontal plane, shaped elements, excessive glass are resulting in fading furniture and carpets, excessive heat in summer and too cold to use in winter. Shutters are ideal as they are super insulating and the fact that they are louvered means you can adjust heat levels. Add to this the fact that we can shape to roof means you can have some stunning results. It’s not cheap but boy does it make a statement.
