The Importance of Expert Shutter Installation

When compared to other window coverings, plantation shutters offer several benefits and this traditional solution is a popular choice for any modern home. Not only are window shutters a timeless choice, but they provide increased control over natural light and privacy. With several shutter types and shutter ranges to choose from too, there is a solution for every homeowner’s design specifications and budget. 

If you’re considering investing in plantation shutters for your home, it’s highly recommended that you turn to a company that provides a professional installation service. It’s so important to ensure your new window shutters are being installed properly and this is key to making the most of your investment. 

Here at The Great Shutter Co, we offer an end-to-end service and we can assist you with shutter installation. Unlike other companies, we don’t use sub-contractors either and our expert installation team is fully trained and employed by us. Below we have looked into some of the main reasons why it’s important to have your shutters professionally installed.  

Flawless installation  

During your design consultation, measurements will be taken of the windows in your home. Your plantation shutters are then made-to-measure to ensure they perfectly fit your windows. Even if you have bay windows or skylight roof windows, plantation shutters can be designed to fit them. However, although the shutters are manufactured to the exact millimetre, they still need to be installed correctly to ensure they fit your windows as they should. Windows that are unevenly plastered or very out of square are best left with shadow gaps rather than areas of heavy trimming or caulking.

An experienced team of shutter installers will know exactly how your new plantation shutters should look. At The Great Shutter Co, sometimes our installers may even be the same consultants you see during your design visit, so they will know your project inside out. They have the skill and experience required to correctly install even the most complex special-shape shutters and you can trust that the final installation will be to a very high standard. With over 1000’s reviews online we have many happy customers. 

Long-lasting fit

How well your plantation shutters are installed will have a direct impact on how long they last. Even if you purchase the highest quality wooden shutters for your living room, for example, if they’re incorrectly installed there is a chance they will get damaged after repeated use. When you enlist the help of an expert shutter installation team, you can open and close your shutters or tilt the louvres several times a day without worrying about them being damaged.

At The Great Shutter Co, all of our window shutters come with a lengthy warranty and we are confident that they will stand the test of time when they’re installed by our team. We will arrange the installation for a date that’s convenient for you and our team will work efficiently to minimise any disruption. We will always follow up post-installation to ensure that you are pleased with the service you have received from start to finish too. 

Perfect for your intended use  

It’s fair to say that plantation shutters are an investment and when you’re replacing the window coverings throughout your home, you will understandably want to ensure the shutters are suitable for your intended use. At The Great Shutter Co, we have a passion for plantation shutters and we can provide you with the impartial advice you need to ensure you’re making the best design choices for every room in your home. 

Once your dream window shutters have been manufactured, we will ensure they’re installed correctly, so they are fit for purpose. If you have blackout shutters, for example, during the installation process we will make sure there is no light bleed or if you have tracked shutters, we will make sure they move with ease. We are committed to exceeding expectations and will go above and beyond to ensure you get the desired effect from your new shutters.
