Easy process with simple steps. This process makes your estimate accurate and hassle-free!

When we arrive to your home or office for your FREE window treatment consultation, the first thing we will do is chat with you and get an idea of what exactly you are looking to accomplish with your treatments.

It is very important to us to see what areas are most concerning to you and why. We request you take us on a walk through your home where you will show us what windows you would like to cover, your concerns for the area, and hear any ideas you may have. At this time we will start formulating ideas on what we feel would fit best in the space for you and be the most practical. We will also pay attention to the colors in your home and start compiling color suggestions that we feel would fit best for you.

The next step in the process is to gather information on window sizes or linear foot total (if performing crown work).

In order to provide an accurate estimate, we must have all the dimensions plugged in.

The measuring time varies depending on the amount of work you are wanting to complete. Typically, however, this process will not last more than 30 minutes. We will go to each area you showed us during the initial walk through and ensure we have the proper measurements in order to start getting an accurate quote together!

After gathering all of the necessary information and showing you all of the different options, we assist you in making a decision on styles, colors etc.

We will discuss your budget so that we are able to steer you in the direction that will work best for you. Again, your satisfaction is our biggest priority.

Once you have made your selections, we complete the pricing estimation.

At this time, you may choose to start the job.

Once you make the decision to proceed, you will be required to pay 75% of the total job amount when placing the order. The remainder will not be required until your product is installed.

Installation Process

Once we have completed your estimate and you have paid your deposit we will get you on the schedule for a final measurement. This will ensure that all measurements taken during your estimate will be the best fit! Lead times vary depending on the product you choose to go with. Plantation Shutters are one average 8-12 weeks from deposit to installation. Blinds and Shades can come sooner than this. The typical lead times for blinds, roller shades, solar shades, roman shades, blackout shades, light filtering shades, cellular shades, and any other shades are about 4-8 weeks.

We do not store products for extended periods of time and typically will get your install done as soon as we receive your product. The installation times may vary depending on the type of window covering and how many. On average a blind or shade should take about 20 mins per window (possibly less or more) and a plantation shutter will take about 45 mins per window. All your window coverings will be installed the same day.
