Falling in love with Blockhouse Shutters – Part Two

Tue, 17 Mar 2020

Lisa Raleigh, a health/fitness guru and blogger, continues her falling in love with Blockhouse Shutters story after she moved into her new home.

After talking about how beautiful and how our shutters double up as a security barrier in Part One, Lisa talks about weatherproof, cleaning and puts our customer service under the spotlight.

They’re weatherproof.

These shutters have transformed my once-outdoor patio as well. It’s so hard choosing furniture for an area that’s vulnerable to bad weather, and you also lose that space for entertaining when the rain and wind comes. My husband, Stafford and I spent ages trying to figure out whether we really needed to enclose our outdoor area with shutters, and now that we’ve done it, we can’t imagine not having them! Our furniture is completely protected, and now we gain that space back when the weather turns. The Blockhouse shutters have an up-to-ten-year guarantee on them too, so that durability isn’t just all talk.

They’re easy to clean.

Like, ridiculously easy. A wipe and some soapy water (at the most) is all it takes to keep these shutters sparkling. As an added bonus, these shutters have been covered in an environmentally-friendly powder coating.

Customer service is impeccable.

When it comes to being on the ball, these guys are the real deal. From quote to installation, very little time passed, and on installation day, my shutters were up within a few hours. Blockhouse only use registered resellers with well-trained installation teams and in my case, the staff from one of their JHB resellers, Magnador, were quiet, capable, tidied up after themselves, and generally professional from start to finish.

It’s a (pretty much) local company.

Blockhouse Shutters is a Cape Town-based company, and their products are manufactured locally. Most of their raw materials are locally sourced too. That’s no easy feat for such a sophisticated product!

If you’d like to know more about our aluminium shutters or would like to place an order, don’t hesitate to call one of our professional installers in your area.
