We had aluminium lever shutters installed in our house. The tradesperson was amazing friendly and courteous. The job was outstanding. Could not fault any of the job. It was a pleasure to work with the person who came out and quoted through to the office staff and The Legend. trades person who installed the job. Highly recommend factory direct shutters. Will be using them in the future. Thanks again for the excellent job

We installed Factory Direct Sun Blinds to our western deck. The quality of the blinds cannot be faulted and Kyle installed them without any fuss just perfect. Thank you for a fine product adding value to our apartment and allowing us to use the deck on hot summer days. I can recommend your firm without hesitation.

Jules is so wonderful to work with. She has so many ideas. Our blinds look great and the two installers ( Scott was one) were pleasant and cleaned up when they were finished. I love the new look! I would definitely deal with this company again!

Look no further this company would be the best. Last Saturday I had installed a concertina plantation shutter in my pergola, roller blinds, Venetian blinds & vertical blinds installed in my home. They all look fabulous. The quality is superb and price very competitive. All Australian made no rubbish from China. The service from each employee I dealt with was efficient, friendly and helpful. I will be using them again in the new year for a small plantation shutter in another pergola. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for their products.

Our new plantation shutters are very nice and installed perfectly. Ordered them in December and advised of manufacture time and likely installation date, which matched well. Installation was quick, allowed silicone to dry for 24 hrs, now it's awesome. Everyone who sees then thinks they are awesome... And I agree! Good job FDS!

Just had our newly renovated bathrooms updated with new shutters. From the first quote through to the install the team at Factory Direct Shutters have been faultless. Nigel in sales was really helpful in choosing the best products, Alison in the office kept us informed of the install and Marks install was excellent. Really happy the final outcome and will be using these guys again.

I have used this company to install shutters throughout my house (in three bedrooms, bathroom, toilet, laundry) ad well as two vertical blinds on two large sliding doors. Jules did a great job doing the measuring and quoting, giving good advice on some unusual windows. Isaac did all the installations and was always efficient, tidy and friendly. I had great confidence in the team and have been very satisfied with the end results. Highly recommended.

From start to finish I was impressed. The whole job has exceeded our expectations. We got a few quotes and FD SHUTTERS came in cheaper and were happy to negotiate. They gave follow up call and the guys that installed the blinds were absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend FD Shutters

Justin & the Team were well above my expectations. I had several quotations & the level of service Factory direct provided was head & shoulders above the competitors. What i liked was Justin's approach; he had passion for his work & gave a good practical opinion on all facets rather than what was easy. Factory directs after sales service was spot on with no neglect on coming back to make a few minor adjustments along with back up calls to ensure we were 100% happy. I can highly recommend these guys as i believe they fit into good old fashioned service
