“Our first home was a low-set brick about 30 years old. It was a good, solid
home, a bit dated inside and out, but it had a huge deck at the back. We asked
Newport to install outdoor shutters to protect the deck from the western sun.
Now that whole side of the house is much cooler and we spend most of our spare
time out there. Newport did such a fantastic job we are getting them back to do

Newport Custom Shutters and Blinds have a relentless commitment to quality and
use only the best materials in the manufacture of their shutters
Gold Coast. Their exterior shutters are available
in Western Red Cedar, aluminium and synthetic materials in a range of colours
and sizes. The manufacturing process is subjected to rigorous quality control
utilising a computer-controlled system accurate to within thousandths of a
millimetre. Louvre blades are hand-sanded before assembly, and customers are
able to choose from a range of custom surface finishes created in-house in
their own sealed spray booths.
The rendered exterior finishes now favoured on new buildings are the perfect
backdrop for Newport’s Western Red Cedar outdoor shutters. The finished product
can be oiled to highlight its natural beauty, or painted to complement the rest
of the exterior. All Newport’s products are fitted by their own, specially
trained installers to ensure that the quality built into the manufacturing
process is maintained at the site.
“We waited 15 years to build a commercial office building that suited our
purpose, so we weren’t going to skimp on quality. Newport Custom Shutters and
Blinds measured up everything, then came back and installed outdoor shutters
and interior louvers. They did superb work; we really can’t fault any part of
their process. When we invite clients to business meetings we know our
presentation is professional from the car park to the front door,” said Gerry
K., Gen. Man.
