What does the process of buying window coverings look like?
We always recommend a visit to the showroom first, or early on. The average homeowner purchases window coverings every seven years. That means there is a whole world of innovations and features that could be new to you! New products, systems and fabrics are on display, with friendly staff to answer your questions.
In addition to getting to know what is available by visiting the showroom, you’ll also get a feel for the type of company you are doing business with. You should feel comfortable with investing in the business you choose. We want you to be excited and confident in your purchase.
The next step is to schedule a FREE in-home consultation. You will meet one-on-one with a window covering specialist. We bring everything necessary so you can choose products and fabrics right in your own home. We take measurements so we can provide you with accurate information and pricing as soon as possible.
*If you feel comfortable to bring your own measurements with you to the showroom, one of our specialists will put together pricing for you right away. (We will do a final measure in your home.)
When we place your final order, we take a deposit at the time of order. As soon as we have shipment information, we can schedule the installation.

What is the timeline to get blinds and shades?

We try to schedule the installation within three to five working days, based on your schedule.

Other companies will often quote delivery of shutters in 10 to 12 weeks. But, with our shutters, we manufacture them here, making us much faster than our competitors. Almost every shutter order we make is installed within four weeks of the receipt of the order.
What are the details of the warranty?
Our products are covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Please visit our warranty page for details of Hunter Douglas and custom Shutters warranties.
Do you provide professional installation? Who does the work?
Yes. We provide installation. Our installation team is highly trained–not contracted out. Our professional installers drive company-owned vehicles. They are fully insured, ensuring that you have the best service and experience.
Can we do a combination of shutters and blinds?
Many companies offer a variety of window coverings. However, if they offer one type of product, they may only offer the other as a convenience, not with expertise. Our company is different. We stay competitive in custom shutters because they are made right here, factory-direct. And, we use Hunter Douglas blinds and shades because they are the best in the business. This combination of product offerings makes our company unique, providing you with an incredible chance to get exactly the window treatments you want in your home.
