Reviews and feedback

Thanks for everything you did a great job we are really pleased with the outcome.

Sue, Mansfield

I had a screen repaired by Steve about a week ago. He was fast, professional, and had great communication. I will be using his services again if I have any issues with my screendoors.

Emely, Morningside

Thanks Steve from Southside Screens. Your solution to the window vent for my laundry window is fantastic. I’d set you a challenge for something a bit out of the ordinary and you nailed it.

Lisa, Warner

I found the quality of the product and the workmanship second to none.
Steve was prompt and on time and completed the installation without leaving any mess at all.
I can highly recommend Southside Screens for your next purchase of security screens.

Speros, Macgregor

Steve is an excellent trades person, always on time and very thorough with an eye for detail. We found the product exceptional and can't believe the change in the appearance of the house from the outside and how improved the view is from inside. Can't recommend Steve and the product he works with enough. Thank you Steve

Robert, Alexandra Hills

Steve is very professional, precise and provides a high quality service

Alex, Murrarie

We are thoroughly delighted with the service and screens provided by Southside Screens, they look classy. As promised Steve measured, quoted and installed which was one of the determining factors in our selection having had a bad experience with installation versus what was discussed on quotation in the past. The screens were installed within the promised timeframe and Steve kept us up to date on his arrival times. He also cleaned up thoroughly after installation, leaving nothing for us to do which is a pleasant change!

Stephanie, Bulimba

On time, kept informed, job looks good so it ticks all the boxes

Pamela, Thorneside

Thanks Steve - I love the doors and screens you have installed for me. On time at a decent price. A no-fuss local business. Thank you!

Neil, Belmont

Quality screen door and quality service throughout. Steve was super helpful in explaining the options and talking through the process. He did an amazing job with the install too. I would definitely recommend!

Andrew, Wynnum West

Can highly recommend Steve and Southside Screens. Competitive pricing and absolutely the highest standard of product and installation!

Mark, Tarragindi

Great prompt service from Steve and seamless process 😊

Karen, Carina Heights

Very happy with the work done. We didn't get other quotes as we wanted to use someone local and Steve was professional right from the start.

Kerri, Tingalpa

Steve from Southside Screens completed our installation today. I appreciated the fact that the same guy that gave the original quote and product advice was also the same guy that did the actual installation. The whole process from quote to install was very professional. Steve spent the time with us when at our house to do the quote, to make sure we fully understood the benefits of each different security screen product. He knew his stuff and I knew after spending time listening to him, that he was the guy I wanted to do the installation. Great job and great service Steve. Thankyou Allan and Jo.

Allan, Cleveland

Steve is one of those tradesmen who would always be welcomed in our home. He is prompt, efficient and more importantly, cleans up after himself. You wouldn't even have known that there was a fairy in the house that miraculously sorted out your issues. Thanks Steve. We would use you absolutely anytime.

Deb, Carindale

Steve installed our security sliding doors and window screens today. I'm absolutely thrilled with the results. When Steve came to give a quote, he provided helpful options and helped us find the right solution. Thank you Steve for being patient with our dog 😊

Annette, Carindale

Steve from Southside Screens provided excellent customer service when installing a new front security screen door. He went above and beyond to provide us with a perfectly fitted door. The result is fantastic. We would definitely recommend Steve to anyone looking for security screens or doors.

Rachael, Mt Gravatt

Our installer Steve was fantastic - professional and friendly and the job was done perfectly. We will use Steve again and recommend him to friends and family.

Donna, Forest Lake

I could not rate Southside Screens highly enough. Steve was an absolute delight to deal with and went above and beyond in ensuring the door we purchased was installed perfectly. Steve has an attention to detail which is sadly missing from a lot of tradies these days. Thanks for the amazing service.

Diane, Bulimba

Excellent product and excellent customer service. Cannot fault - highly recommend.

Rachel, Tarragindi

Steve was easy to deal with - prompt and reliable. He did a fantastic job installing screen doors on our sliding stacker doors and screens on windows for our renovation. Would highly recommend!

Sam, Morningside

Steve was great from start to finish. I would recommend him for any screens.
He went out of his way to manage our high bathroom window.

Lewis, Carina

Prompt service and Steve gave great advice which made us decide to get the sliding doors which has made a total transformation. Steve’s workmanship was exemplary. We are extremely happy. Thank you

Judy, Coorparoo

Had an awesome experience with Steve and Southside Screens. Steve was very knowledgeable about the products and provided a great recommendation for our needs. Installation was very professional and end results look great!

Kaley, Moorooka

Steve was very prompt and professional with our installation of security screens after a recent break-in. His care and concern was obvious, even to the point of contacting the manufacturer to speed up the process. We now have professionally installed high quality security screens and feel much safer.

Joanne, Morningside

Highly recommend Southside Screens. Prompt communication, fast service and high quality product. Steve could not have made the process any easier. Very happy!

Lisa, Camp Hill

What did you like best?: Steve’s approach to his work and prompt service. He was professional and had a strong knowledge of the product. Steve pointed out suggested approaches to the retro fit and alerted us to problems. He was able to provide solutions to any problems also. Steve went beyond our expectations and provided a great service. He worked with a good product, we are very happy with Prowler Proof Screens.

We honestly can’t identify any area that needs improvement. Very happy with the process and the outcome. The work was even completed ahead of schedule.

Would recommend.

Ian, Sunnybank Hills

I really appreciate the super speedy and excellent work that you did yesterday!

Charmaine, Wynnum

Very good experience. Will use again and recommend to friends.

Ian, Norman Park

Just letting you know I am very happy with the screens & the installation – they definitely add a touch of class to the unit.

This is the 3rd time I have had screens installed & after the first two I knew it was time for a change so I thought I’d give a sole business owner a go & I am very happy I did!

Michael, Annerley

Efficiency and communication was very good. Steve was very obliging at every step in the process and completed the job of re-meshing and fitting new door with little disruption to the household.

Paula, Greenslopes

Steve was brilliant. Did a great job and gave good advice on how to maintain screens and screen doors into the future. Great service - highly recommend

Mike, Lota

Steve was very easy to deal with and set expectations upfront, so there were no surprises during the whole process. Great quality and care was put into the work that was done. Highly recommend.

Joe, Tarragindi

Excellent service for a great looking product. Steve was extremely professional. He worked hard to fulfill our specific needs without hesitation. Quotes were received from several companies, but Southside Screens were clearly the best on many levels.

Julie, Tennyson

Our home is now fully screened, the 3rd time we have used Southside Screens. I thoroughly recommend Steve and his products. Service and quality is exemplary.

Stephanie, Bulimba

They're terrific. Steve goes above and beyond. Highly recommended.

Towards sustabinability

Probably the biggest threat to our collective security is climate change. It is becoming increasingly urgent for all businesses to do our part in moving as fast as we can towards being carbon neutral or carbon positive. We've taken the first few steps to decrease or offset our emissions and improve the sustainability of our business.

Offset car emissions

As a service based business, we spend a fair bit of time on the road, and need to be able to carry around large screens. Unfortunately, you can't buy an electric van to do that yet! So we've gone the next best option and offset our vehicle emissions through Go Neutral. 

Go Neutral purchase only Australian Carbon Credit Units - meaning all offset projects are undertaken in Australia. All projects are independently audited and verified. 

The projects fund actions that increase the amount of carbon stored in trees and the soil.

Renewable energy

We generate and purchase only renewable energy. We've had the solar panels on the roof for a few years now, and they have dramatically reduced our energy use - in summer we produce more than we use! But we still have a net consumption of electricity, which is why we chose Diamond Energy as our provider - they only purchase renewable energy and have gone beyond carbon neutral.

Recycling materials

We sometimes need to remove old screens, or end up with small offcuts of frame or mesh that can't be used. As the doors are all made of aluminium and stainless steel, these are far too valuable to simply throw away. All our scrap metal and old doors are fully recycled. And sometimes they can be used in even better ways!
