Can you quote me over the phone?

Yes, this is probably the most popular way of quoting for shutters. All you need to do is measure the width and drop of each window under consideration in either inches or millimetres and phone the sizes through. We will then calculate some prices for you and call you back or alternatively we can do the same via email: sales@erfectshutters.co.uk

What are Plantation Shutters?

Plantation shutters are an elegant, practical and stylish alternative to curtains or blinds and suit both contemporary and traditional decor. Perfect Shutters offer the biggest selection of Plantation Shutters in Liverpool, Merseyside, Wirral, Cheshire and Lancashire.

Can plantation shutters be installed on any window?

Perfect Shutters can be installed on virtually any window, including French door, patio sliding doors and bay windows. They can also be used effectively as room dividers fitted on tracks. They usually cannot be fitted where there is a false ceiling or fixed pelmet that prohibits the shutter from being opened.

If the window/door opens inwards they can always be mounted outside of the reveal. If in doubt, Telephone: 0151 724 1100

Yes, our shutters carry up to 5 years guarantee on Sumatra range, and minimum 3 years on all other shutter ranges.

What if I have a problem after the guarantee period?

Perfect Shutters are very reliable and should last a lifetime. We can usually repair any problems depending on the extent of the damage and how it was caused.

How many plantation shutter panels do I need in my window opening?

Generally a window looks best with 4 panels, two opening as pairs either way. A 3-window bay, however, will usually have 2 panels on the smaller side windows and 4 in the centre. All panels will open away from the middle.

For partitioning or for large windows where tracking is needed at the top to suspend the panels you will really need an even number of panels or they will look odd and not hang from the track properly. Ideally 8 panels or 12 panels for very large openings is best although quite often it is wise to hang even 6 panels from tracking if they are quite large.

In summary, the window will normally dictate the number of panels. If the window is split into two halves you would either have 2 or 4 panels and it follows that if it is three panes then three or six panels will suffice. The vertical dividers of the windows are where the vertical stiles of the shutters should be ideally.

Can you make shutters for any custom shape window?

Yes. We can manufacture shutters for almost any shaped window. Whether you have an arched, triangular, hexagonal or circular shaped window, shutters tend to emphasise the unique shape of the window. See examples of custom shape shutters »

What colours and stains are available for Plantation Shutters?

Shutters offer a full colour palette, utilising some of the most popular and en-vogue colours in the market place. Unlike cheaper imitations, all Perfect Shutters are given 6 coats of paint or stain to give a tough, lustrous finish and to help prevent fading the final layer is UV protected.

Our custom colour option offers you virtually any colour finish you require and we can match the UK’s leading paint companies colours.

What louvre size should I choose?

When making your louvre choice, consider the size of the room, window and the desired effect. Perfect Shutters offer six main louvre sizes depending on the shutter range chosen, plus a solid shutter version and a blackout shutter with integrated honeycomb blind for ultimate light exclusion.

When choosing your louvre, you’ll need to decide which size best suits your window while allowing the louvres to be opened without making contact with your window/furniture, with larger louvre sizes requiring more room to open.

Generally larger windows command a larger louvre size for your plantation shutters and smaller windows a smaller louvre size.

How eco friendly are your shutters?

The materials used to manufacture our shutters are sourced from well-managed forests and therefore do not impact on the environment.

What are your terms of payment?

We require 50% deposit on all orders with the balance payable when the shutters are delivered. The deposit and balance can be paid by credit or debit card, cash and cheque.
