The Best Shutters, The Best Service
The town of St Helens differs from other large towns in the North West as its economy did not grow out of the production of textiles for clothing, but from coal mining, glass production, salt, lime, copper, and brewing. While the industry of St Helens did include textile manufacture, its output focussed on sail making for shipping. It is perhaps this different and diverse economic base which is responsible for the distinct character of the town.Read More
The Pharmaceutical industry has also always been a major component of St Helens’ industry, and Beechams has its origins here. St Helens did not become a unified entity until the mid-Nineteenth Century when several villages were amalgamated into the town we know today. The name ‘St Helens’ itself was adopted from a small church in the area.
The people of St Helens are very proud of their town. In 2015 journalist Tom Belger interviewed many of the St Helens’ residents for the Liverpool Echo newspaper and reported that the local people felt that they had a great sense of feeling ‘at home’. The report also highlighted that St Helens had a very strong sense of community and that caring for neighbours ranked highly in the residents’ priorities. St Helens therefore is not only an appealing place to live, but a very tempting town to relocate too. Much of St Helens’ housing stock is made up of traditional red brick terraces, and these have become very desirable properties which can be easily given a more stylish and modern touch with little effort or expense.
One method of updating the appearance of such houses is to replace curtains with plantation shutters. A rather dowdy looking house can be instantly transformed into a brighter, smarter looking property with the addition of wooden shutters. Our shutters are available in a wide range of colours and material, and our team are always on hand to advise you on what best suits your needs. St Helens also has many houses built in the 1930s, and as such shutters for bay windows are needed by many of our customers in the town. Our bay window shutters are available in the same colours and materials as our standard shutters, and we can design and install them with equal ease.
Plantation shutters are not only visually appealing, but highly practical too. Closed they offer sound heat insulation in colder weather, but when opened they provide efficient, airy ventilation when it is hot. Unlike curtains or fabric blinds, wooden shutters do not require expensive and time-consuming trips to the dry cleaners, but can be quickly and simply be dusted or wiped as part of your regular cleaning routine. If you are considering shutters St Helens has many suppliers, but we don’t like to think of ourselves as just a St Helens shutter company, but YOUR local shutter company and are more than happy to discuss your home and its requirements. If you are thinking about wooden shutters for your home and asking “where can I find a shutter company near me?” we’d love you to let us demonstrate our efficient friendly service as well as the quality of the materials we supply and install.
