Can the lead-time be speeded up?
The shutters are made in within 2 or 3 days of order, however they have to be shipped back to the Australia and it is this that takes the time.
How long do shutters take to install?
Most installations are completed in one day, however, it depends on the size of the order and a very small percentage will take 2 days. Casey Blinds and shutters installers are employees instead of subcontractors. The installers are paid by the hour and not the job in order to insure they install the job properly without rushing on to the next one.

Absolutely. PVC plantation shutters are water proof and we have fitted many PVC shutters in bathrooms and wash rooms

How much are the plantation shutters going to cost?
Plantation shutters add value to your home and will make you and your family far more comfortable. They average about $300 per squre meter. It is difficult to estimate specialty shaped windows, so it's best to call your dealer or designer and have them measure these for you for an accurate estimate.
Do plantation shutters increase the value of your home?
Plantation Shutters help in two ways. They increase the curb-appeal on any home and likely increase the number of people who will consider purchasing. It's also been estimated that they will increase your home appraisal value by several percentage points.
What type of maintenance should I expect?
We use the highest quality paints and clear coats. Maintenance would be the same for your shutters as it is for your window sills. Typical maintenance is occasional. Lamb's wool dusters work very well for dusting. Once a year, you may need to use a damp cloth. Otherwise, our shutters are built to last a lifetime.
