Shutters

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much do plantation shutters cost?

    All of our window shutters are priced by the square metre with the majority of the configuration options all included at no extra cost. Therefore, once you know which material you would like your shutters made from we are able to give you a quotation straight away from the sizes you provide. For larger jobs, this price is fully inclusive of survey, manufacture and installation.

  • Are plantation shutters expensive?

    When you compare window shutters to basic types of window blinds such as a roller blind or vertical blind then yes in comparison shutters are often more expensive. They are however excellent value for money, will last for years, and add value to your property.

  • Can I get an idea of price for interior window shutters?

    Yes. You need to provide the sizes (width and drop) of the windows you would like shutters for and then we can e-mail you a quotation. Also let us know the type of shutters you want, S-Craft - and which wood, Faux wood or Vinyl. We will also happily prepare multiple quotations for different woods for you to compare.

  • How to fit plantation shutters

    In theory, you can fit your own interior window shutters. However, we would always recommend having them professionally surveyed and installed. Please contact us for more information.

  • What is the lead time for shutters?

    The lead time for wooden shutters is always between 10 and 12 weeks due mainly to shipping, but this can sometimes be longer. There is an option for air freight though this works out very expensive. Alternatively you can choose UK manufactured faux wood shutters that are typically available in only 3 weeks!

  • How long does it take to install shutters?

    This is variable depending on the size of the shutters and the window. As the shutters need to be perfectly square, and many windows are not, this can add time to the installation. For a simple rectangular average small window approximately an hour. For a bay window 3-4 hours. These are a very rough guideline as every job is unique.

  • REALLY impressed by every aspect of our order with Blind Technique. The staff were, without exception, readily accessible (a big plus these days), friendly, engaged, and professional. We knew what was going on at every stage and the final outcome is superb; the plantation blinds look and feel well made and have added very positively to the look of the front of our house.
