The price of Roller Shutters will vary between installations. Some of the more important details will be size, type, anchoring method and whether or not you have any special requirements of your Roller Shutters. For a quote, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of the team at Half Price Shutters.

The screen of a Roller Shutter is most often made up of adjoined lengths of a hard-wearing material like metal. These lengths have their ends couched in tracks mounted to either side of a window. These lengths of material, or slats, slide up and down in these tracks to open or close the shutter. When open, the slats are usually rolled up above the window, out of the way.

Roller Shutters are a great way to cut back on the amount you spend on heating and cooling your home or business! The physical barrier of a Roller Shutter permits less heat to pass through, compared to a fabric blind or curtain. Installing Roller Shutters in your home or business can also help reduce the amount of heat that enters or escapes in that area.

You might typically expect the installation of a Roller Shutter to cost anywhere between $250 to $1000 depending on a couple factors. Size, placement, style and material will all affect the cost. At Half Price Shutters, we pride ourselves on making Roller Shutters affordable and accessible. Get in touch with us now for a Free quote and Measure!

Roller Shutters are an effective way of blocking out any unwanted noise. When sealed all the way, the physical barrier of a roller shutter can drastically reduce the volume of ambient noise entering your home or business. Speak to one of our team about what you can do with Half Price Shutters to reduce the noise that enters your home or business.

Roller Shutters typically require very little maintenance. As long as you take care in raising and lowering the slats, your Roller Shutters should last for many years. But you may want to engage in some routine maintenance to avoid jams. Greasing the bearings and giving the surfaces a wipe down will be helpful in maintaining your Roller Shutters in the long run.

Wiping down your Roller Shutters with a mild cleaner and clearing away any dirt or debris will keep your shutters looking great. For a deeper clean, you might want to use a hose or pressure washer to clear away any dust, dirt or leaf matter that may have accumulated over time.

The best clean you can get on your Roller Shutters is achieved with a pressure washer. We highly recommend you reading the instructions manual before you start using a pressure washer on your Roller Shutters.

Caution: Avoid washing the grease out of your Roller Shutter tracks.

You can look after your Roller Shutters by using a silicone or grease based spray along the tracks that run either side of your window. Be careful though, you don’t want to go mixing lubricants. For the best results, talk to your installer about how you can maintain your roller shutters between services.

We recommend that you get your Roller Shutters serviced every twelve months. Regular service intervals give our installation and maintenance professionals a chance to eliminate any potential long-term problems and keep your Roller Shutters working smoothly. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at Half Price Shutters and arrange a service inspection.

Indoor Blinds

Indoor Blinds

Half Price Shutters has an extensive range of Indoor Blinds including Roller, Venetian, Vertical and Panel Glide Blinds suitable for any home.

Roller Blinds get top marks for practicality and sleek and sophisticated design. By far the most popular blinds in Australian homes, Roller Blinds allow maximum light to flood into rooms and provide a tailored and streamlined clean look.

When it comes to choosing new Indoor Blinds for your home, office or shop front, there are many different factors that should be considered. For most buyers, the decision usually comes down to the visual appeal of a particular model – and that’s hardly a crime. But what many people don’t realise is that there is more to choosing a new set of blinds than first meets the eye. Climate, for instance, can have a very real impact on suitability and effectiveness, and this can impact your entire property. Whether you are dealing with hot or cold conditions, sunny skies or grey ones, we are here to provide the information that you need before your next purchase.

Outdoor Awnings

Outdoor Awnings

If you’re looking for stylish outdoor shade solutions, our range of Outdoor Awnings offers something for everyone.

Keep cool this summer. Awnings can improve your home’s energy efficiency and keep you cool in summer.

Not only do Awnings help to protect and cool your home, they can also give your home a facelift. Whether you want to make a statement with bold stripes or coordinate the colour of your Awning to the exterior of your home, Awnings add another dimension to your home.

Awnings are like a protruding roof that sits above your window (or door) and juts outwards. These can be retractable and can be made from a variety of materials, from fabric to metal. Regardless of type, awnings can be differentiated from blinds and shutters by the fact that they always sit on the outside of your window and protrude.

Awnings are usually ideal for houses exposed to extreme heat and light from the sun. They allow for a lot of creativity when it comes to styling and colour. You can also get awnings big enough to cover decks, pools, and carparks. The main issue is ensuring you have the space on your property to facilitate an awning without it reaching over your neighbour’s fence. If so, the possibilities are endless.
