Hybrid Plantation Shutters

Hybrid Plantation Shutters.

Hybrid Shutter Blinds mix the classic look of a traditional wood shutter with more industrially advanced materials. So what is it exactly? Put simply, a hybrid shutter is a shutter that’s part wood, part modern material. In terms of the mechanism itself, a hybrid shutter and a plantation shutter are identical. It consists of a series of louvers that you can adjust accordingly. The difference is that, while traditional plantation shutters are generally 100 percent wood, hybrid shutters combine the best part of wood and faux wood shutters. Cleverly fusing a solid timber frame with PVC blades, this progressive shutter is light in weight, preventing sag, which allows for a wider panel expanse than full PVC shutter. Hybrid shutters are widely known by the name, composite shutters. Like any home investment, only shutters of exceptional quality can provide long-term value and help increase your home’s appreciation.

Dan’s Handy Shutter Tip

“Shutters aren’t just shutters – there’s a lot to them. With so many shutter products on the market, its important and extremely beneficial for you to do your research. Don’t get caught up in with warranty hype, most have limitations. It’s just as important you choose a company that backs their Shutter installation service. Poor installation can also lead to premature failure – will your warranty advertised by others still hold up? – Probably not. So ensure you are confident with the branded shutter you have selected as well as the company who is going to install them.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Don’t see your answer here? Give us a call on 1300 88 36 37 or send us an email now.

Will purchasing and installing shutters to my home increase the value of my home?

The feedback we have received and been advised from various customers/ real estate agents / and developers has been that having modern window furnishings such as Plantation Shutters provide a beautiful finish when attempting to achieve the best price in the sale of your home.

Who will install my Shutters?

Only qualified and experienced trade staff member of ours will be installing your Shutters. All our installation work is guaranteed. After all what good is a product if it has been installed poorly.

What type of Timber are the Timber Shutters made from?

We have available a Phoenix wood and a Basswood.

What warranties do you offer with Shutters?

Most companies have been selling the PVC shutter within Brisbane for approx. 2-4 years however, they still offer a 25-year warranty…. A warranty is only as good as the company who backs it, so how can these companies offer a 25-year warranty with no history that the shutters will actually last. We are upfront with our warranties, some have a 3 year warranty (that covers every part), and we have a 20 year warranty.

Will the shutters change colour? Will they break down from the Australian UV rays? Will the shutters warp, twist?

Quite simply the answer is no. We only sell Brisbane’s finest Shutters that withheld the harsh Australian climate.

Other companies advise their shutters are made in Australia are yours?

As far as we know, there are no australian made shutter materials available. Companies may advertised Australian made, but you might realise that the materials are imported from overseas and assembled here – labelling them Australian made. What’s more important is the Shutter material itself – ensure you are purchasing a high quality shutter.

Will my shutters be custom made to fit my exact windows/doors?

Absolutely. Every shutter we make is made to fit the exact specific measurements of every window and door.
