What to look for in a shutter company?
There are many window shutter companies in the market today, which is testament to just how popular this particular type of window treatment has become. But how do you distinguish between the great, the good and the not so good?
This article explores things to look for to find yourself a great shutter installation company.
Finding a shutter company who have a good amount of experience is likely to ensure an excellent end result. Experience is vital when it comes to giving advice regarding the correct materials to use, which style to go for and even what colour to opt for. From fitting, to measuring to installing shutters on standard and unusual shaped windows, an experienced shutter company will combine expert knowledge with high quality materials for a technically perfect and stylish finish.
A good quality window company will install high quality products that have passed strict quality controls. Whether you choose wooden shutters made from Cedar or Basswood, painted shutters or shutters made from engineered materials, the quality and beauty of the materials used will enhance the end result and keep your shutters looking great for a long time.
It is unknown to many that windows are nearly always slightly odd sizes. Whether they are few centimeters taller on one side, or wider in one corner, shutters that are not made to measure may not create a perfect fit. A good shutter company will measure your windows and create custom size products that are designed specifically for the space. Once they have taken the measurements, your shutters can be made from the material of your choice and then oiled, stained or painted.
A company offering a varied product range will enable you to choose shutters that are exactly right for your home.
Window shutters come in two main styles – plantation shutters and solid shutters – but there are lots of variations for each. Plantation shutters can be chosen as full length, cafe style or tier on tier. They come in lots of special shapes such as circle, sunburst, octagon and eyebrow. If choosing plantation shutters the louvre size can also be customised.
Solid shutters can be solid throughout or louvered at the top. Solid shutter panels can be customised too to match the style of furniture in your home.
All shutters can be stained or painted and come in various materials.
Here at Bespoke Shutters our product range consists of 6 individual styles; The Vancouver, The Portland, The Boston, The Seattle, The Phoenix and The Bathroom range.

It is important when purchasing shutters to consider the warranty of the product you are buying. This will ensure you are covered against faulty products or workmanship.

The guarantee does not cover wear and tear, damage caused by a third party, customer misuse or circumstances outside of our control.
