5 Things You Should Know

Before Buying Window Coverings


  1. Shutters Are the ONLY product that increase home value. We offer 6 Lines of Shutters to Meet any budget.
  2. Horizontal blinds are the Number 1 selling product, and one of the least expensive products that looks attractive.
  3. Opaque Honeycomb Shades Offer 99% blackout with great R values(Heat out/Cold In) better than shutters.
  4. Only buy from companies listed with the BBB/BCA, check their record and see how long they have been in business.
  5. Get 3 competitive bids for the same product. Understand that different manufacturers of a product charge different prices. i.e. Hunter Douglas can’t be compared to Bali or Levolor.  Call us LAST so we can prove our savings to you.
