    Thank you Heather - I LOVE my home!
    Heather came to handle a window covering for my large front window. As it turned out, she helped me with every room in my home! I thought I had a good idea of what I wanted, but her ideal were much better. She was courteous, thoughtful, efficient, and knowledgeable. The cost of treatments for all my windows was very reasonable. I would certainly recommend inviting Heather to help you make your home a comfortable haven - the place you want to love being in - as I did.

    Selecting my window coverings an enjoyable experience!
    My experience with selecting window coverings for my new home was wonderful. Heather was very helpful to me in answering questions, helping me select the perfect shutters or woven woods for each window, measuring all of the windows with accuracy, and ordering them for me so I would have them installed in a timely manner. I am very pleased with the window coverings....they are beautiful! I appreciate Heather's professional and friendly help with this important step in making my house a home.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I give my best price up front and install is included.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I like to meet at your home. Its good to look at samples there and get measurements. I carry the latest shades, blinds and shutters and can show you colors and textures that will work best in your home. Most often I can give an estimate when we meet or email depending on time at the appointment. Usually takes about an hour depending on size of home, if you are looking for ideas or know what you want.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I worked for a large window covering company for 6 years from 2003-2008. when they closed there doors, I decided to start a business for myself and have been helping customers with there window treatment needs since then. I love what I do!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I just finished my Dental assisting school and a friend of mine had been working for this window covering business (Absolut) and asked if I wanted a position in the company. So I switched directions and I'm happy to say it worked out well!
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with builders, realtors, investors, homeowners, rental agency's, commercial businesses, and restoration company's.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I helped a customer who had a beautiful view out there windows. They were getting estimates for shades and were shown ones that blocked that view. When I showed them the ones they could get that would keep the sun out but not the beautiful view they were thrilled and surprised no one had shown them this. After the shades arrived 2 1/2 weeks later they were very pleased!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Shades are an investment. You don't want to have to replace them in a few years. You will enjoy the look of them for years to come. They can really make a home look beautiful!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How do you want to control the light in a bedroom? Is the view important? How hot or cold does the room get? Do I want privacy?
