Default Electric Roller Shutters

I am looking to have installed Electric Roller Shutters on my Patio, and am presently
looking for a reliable company in the Albufeira Region, or a company that supplies a
service to this area. My experience in trying to even get somebody to look at the job
has been difficult and unsuccessful to date.

Can anybody help????

Many Thanks to Canoeman, and BlackIrishGirl,

Hopefully my Security Alarm people will come to the rescue, they have stepped in to help and made a suggestion of a company that they will ensure will take care of the job from start to finish, and due to my apprehension in not only getting the right people, but getting a company to install under their supervision which must be a good solution.

Thank You

Hi,
How did you get on with the roller shutters? What was the name of the company the security company recommended? I am in the market for the same.

Electric roller shutters need to be installed during the construction phase (the box they roll into together with the motor is built into the wall above the opening).

It can be done as a retro fit but they look horribly ugly with the motor box and roll on the outside wall.

You could end up reducing the value of your property by 1000's

Sorry for the delay in replying, The company I used are called
Estores Lamy Lagoa, Tel: 282 342 858, they have an English speaking fitter who is extremelyhelpful his name is Valdemar Santos .

The blinds are brilliant after messing about opening and closing doors.

They fitted the Patio and omorrow they will be fitting the remaining doors to our Villa. I found them very reasonable on price.

The electric roller shutters have now been fitted on on all doors, thiese are not ugly as you suggest. The original doors are old fashioned, this has smartened up
the appearance of the Villa and they are not obtrusive the boxes are smaller than normal has we elected to have narrower slats on the blinds.
You should not people off having them fitted by your unadvised opinions.
