Expert Advice: Building or buying a home this year?
There are just so many details and things to think about when you are moving into or building a new home. I can’t tell you how often I have been with a family in their new home, and they have a desperate need for window coverings, but have no idea as to what to expect as far as budget, timelines, or even which type of window covering product would suit them the best. We at Shade Maker Blinds Regina want to make it as easy as possible for you!
TIMELINES – your consultation will take anywhere between 30 mins up to 2 hours. At your consultation, we can decide on your window coverings and also take professional measurements of the windows in your home. Your quote will be back to you at the same time as your consult! Right on the spot, just that easy!! We accept Debit, Credit Card, Cheque or Cash and will order your product that same day in order to get them installed as soon as possible=)
For most custom window coverings, shutters being the exception, the ship time from the manufacturer is between 3-4 weeks. Plantation shutters will take between 4-10 weeks, depending on the size and scale of the project. Most other products (wood or faux wood blinds, cellular or honeycomb shades, roller and solar shades, roman shades, sheers and draperies, etc.) are able to be installed between 4-5 weeks from time of order.
BUDGET! This is something everyone wants to know! Shade Maker Blinds Regina offers a wide variety of choices from a number of brand name quality manufacturers – and there is a bit of variance in the price ranges. The size of your windows also plays a factor into your costs…the larger the window, naturally, the more pricey the window covering. One of the most cost-effective window covering products would be faux-wood blinds. Fabrics and natural woven woods generally require more of an investment, as do plantation shutters. Pleated, roller and solar shades tend to fall more into the budget-conscious category, and cellulars (depending upon options and upgrades) fall pretty much in the middle of the road. I do think that you would be surprised what you can actually afford when you do some comparison shopping! Shade Maker Blinds design experts can help, and with the excellent warranty on all of our products you can be sure to get the best value for your dollar. That's our job and we love it!
