DIY 4U? Find Out This Weekend!

There’s just a few days to go before this weekend’s Self Build & Improve Show in Belfast.  And one of the features on our stand will be the chance for you to have a go at installing plantation shutters for yourself.

Now it’s only a 3′ x 4′ window with 2 shutter panels, fitted using a Z frame, so it’s as easy as it gets.

Nonetheless if you’re not standing back admiring your work after 10 minutes (with a little guidance from myself), I’ll be very surprised! It’s really not that difficult.

And if you’re the type that comes out in a rash at the very mention of DIY, don’t worry.  We have shutter installers who can do the job for you.

Either way, we’ll show you how you can get excellent value for your money on your premium quality basswood shutters when you choose Shutterplus.

So if you’re in the area this weekend, drop in for a quick chat, and maybe even a glass of wine and a few sweets for the kids!

Minus 35 Degrees!!

With temperatures plunging to as low as -35 in central and eastern Europe, now’s probably a good time to remind you of the insulating properties of wooden shutters.

Wood is one of the best insulating materials you can get.  And when you install wooden shutters on your windows, you are basically covering your window with this material and providing a barrier against heat loss.  After all the majority of heat loss occurs through walls and windows.

Nobody thinks twice about insulating their walls, but what about your windows.  Ok most homes now have double-glazing but believe me, fitting shutters on your windows will dramatically reduce heat loss.


But don’t just take my word for it.

Take a look at this
