It's plastic, and thus has a bit more flex than timber. Comes in fewer colours.

Stable strong construction and available in many finishes

Plantation shutters premium selection


SUNTOUGH © Shutters

This is an extremely high quality product that has a thick, solid resin, coating that has been shown to resist surface cracking and will have no colour deterioration.

Manufacturer offers a 'life time' guarantee.

Con's

A lot more expensive.

The product is only half the battle

proper installation is a major factor in your expensive investment! Most of the companies offering plantation shutters are blind and window covering companies. They do not have qualified tradesmen, only blind installers or 'handymen'. If they claim any further 'trade' than this, they should be able to provide a current trade license with a number attached, i.e. for example mine (Darren Stewart) is Licence No.220274C.

I can not emphasize this enough, would you go to the Mercedes dealership, spend a fortune on all the quality parts, then call up a gardener who does a bit of 'handiwork' to install them, just something to think about.

Darren Stewart will back up his qualifications

Darren Stewart Proprietor of AAA Old School Carpentry, will back up all of his claims of relevant carpentry experience and qualifications on request, will your local self professed expert?
