The Best Shutters, The Best Service
Rochdale sits on the River Roch at the foothills of the Pennines and grew into prominence during the industrial revolution as a mill town servicing the cotton industry. Much of the town’s architecture dates back to this period, and Rochdale has many buildings built in the classic Gothic style. Principal amongst these is Rochdale town hall, which was originally crowned by a wooden steeple topped with a gilt statue of Saint George and the Dragon.Read More
In 1883, however, this spire was destroyed by fire and then replaced with the clock tower that stands to this day: designed by none other than legendary Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse who was also the designer of Manchester’s vast town hall.
Rochdale was crucial politically as well as economically during the Nineteenth Century, being a centre of radicalism and political reform. Most notable among Rochdale’s radicals was the MP John Bright who lead the Anti-Corn Law League. But Rochdale’s history extends further back than this, the municipality is recorded in the Domesday Book as an important market town, and before that was an important staging point on the Roman road that linked Manchester and York. Today, Rochdale is reviving itself as a contemporary town with a diverse community that reflects the changing face of modern Britain. Although the town is known to be the birthplace of Gracie Fields and Coronation Street’s Julie Goodyear, Rochdale can also boast Goodies’ legend and naturalist Bill Oddie, singer Lisa Stansfield, actress Anna Friel, former Dr Who Colin Baker and comedian Steve Coogan in its hall of fame.
As housing prices rise in central Manchester, the city’s satellite towns are increasingly being seen as an affordable and desirable location to live in. Rochdale not only affords commuters with a swift journey into work, but a location which is a thriving community in itself, minutes away from beautiful countryside. The town’s stock of terraced housing is becoming a fashionable option for people setting up home in the area; these properties can be easily transformed into contemporary and stylish homes with plantation shutters. Hardwood shutters offer more than chicness, however; they are quickly and easily cleaned, unlike curtains and fabric blinds. Their practicality also extends further, they can act as both effective ventilation and provide efficient insulation in the changeable Pennine climate.
Our experienced staff do not only design and install wooden shutters, but are able and happy to advise you how your needs are best served from the variety of colours and materials our window shutters are available in. Importantly, we realise that many houses in the area will require shutters for bay windows due to the vintage of the houses, we are highly adept at designing and fitting bay window shutters to properties of this type. We don’t want you to think of us as another Rochdale shutter company, but YOUR local shutter company and are more than happy to discuss your home and its requirements. If you are thinking about hardwood 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.
