Reviews of Window Blinds Installers

After checking out references that you received for window blinds installers, you'll want to check online reviews. You should be able to find online reviews for just about any window blinds installer in your local area. This can very helpful, but can also be overwhelming and misleading at times. Here are a few guidelines to help you as you sift through all of the reviews:

An overwhelmingly positive or negative review of a window blinds installer could be a sign of a fake review- so take that into considerations.
Make a special note of window blinds installers that have received a great deal of reviews. A lot of reviews combined with 4.5 to 5 stars is a big sign that the window treatment company got those legitimately.
Keep an eye out for reviews that compare their experience with other window blinds installers. Giving these details adds validity to the reviewer who has actually hired a local window blinds installer.

Here are a few examples of valid reviews of window blinds installers:

"The friendly and knowledgeable in-home consultation was exactly what I needed since I didn't know anything about blinds. The installer did solid work, and I'm a happy customer."

"Stoneside Blinds & Shades was an absolute pleasure to do business with. Michelle and Tom were both great, both super stars and I couldn't ask for better people to work with. Michelle helped me pick exactly what I wanted and was super helpful throughout the entire selection/purchase/install process. Tom is awesome, super friendly and installed the shades perfectly and very quickly too. I was impressed with his work. I couldn't ask for a better customer experience. I'm very happy with my new shades and can tell they will give me great pleasure in my new home in the coming years. They are great quality and really improve the appearance and functionality of my home. You guys rock! Thank you so much."

"Mr Crawford gave the job his personal attention. Clearly experienced and professional. Provided everything I asked for.. Workmanship and quality, first rate. A satisfied customer with beautiful curtains."

Window Blinds Installer References

Once you have gathered referrals and checked online reviews of the window treatment companies, you want to call the company directly and ask them for at least 2 recent references. These should be from customers they have completed work for within the past month. Also, you can ask for references for specific issues like roller blinds that won’t go down, roller blinds that don’t stay put, roller blinds are moving too fast, roller shades move too slowly, slats have been broken or just general window blind issues. Here are some questions you could ask the window blinds installers' references:

What work did the window blinds installer do for you? A small window blind issue or big window blind issue will give you insight as to the scale of the project. Was it for roller blinds are moving too fast, slats have been broken, roller blinds that won’t go down, roller shades move too slowly, roller blinds that don’t stay put or just general window blind issues?
Did the window blinds installer provide a contract with details of the work? Did they provide what methods will be used, possible issues, etc.
How was the staff that completed the window treatment work? Professional, clean, friendly? Ask about the things that you care about.
Was the window treatment work completed per the agreed upon budget?
How were the window blinds installers results? Did they meet or exceed your expectations?
Would you hire the window blinds installer again?

Pro Tip:

Licensed and Insured Window Treatment

When hiring a Window Blinds Installer, that last think you want to do is hire one that is not a legitimate business and has no license and insurance. Just because you know that Window Treatment companies should be licensed, bonded and insured, don't take this for granted.

Window Blinds Installers that do not have a license will most likely try to cut corners because they understand that they are not as accountable for their work. In fact, it's illegal for them to operate without a license.

Professional window treatment companies will have no problem showing you all the necessary documents, licenses and insurance to operate their business.
