Now in its 14th year of business, Affordable Blinds & Shutters serves all parts of the metro area. Serving residential and commercial markets, the experts at Affordable Blinds & Shutters offer high quality products using well-known vendors with lifetime warranties. When possible, they use products that are made exclusively in the United States. They sell custom made, custom fit window coverings made to exactly fit each window.
“We offer a complete line of high quality products to fit any budget and we carry items that fit into customers’ decorating and design schemes,” noted owner Steve Roberts, who runs this business with his wife Angie and their five employees. “We are happy to help customers figure out the style and design that best suits their needs and then we fit the product specifically for the windows.”
And Roberts also knows when not to sell something, leaning heavily on the company’s philosophy for honesty and transparency with each transaction. This company will not defer to high pressure sales tactics and consistently works with each customer’s best interests, style and budget in mind.
“Certain windows simply don’t need any coverings, and while this may surprise some people, we aren’t in the business of selling products that really aren’t needed,” explained Roberts.
Figuring out which windows to cover and which products to use can be overwhelming and time consuming, but the experts at Affordable Blinds & Shutters know their craft and are more than happy to make the selection and installation process as simple and efficient as possible.
Affordable Blinds & Shutters provides free in-home consultations to learn what the customer wants. Roberts and his team can show numerous options on his tablet and once the choices are narrowed down to a select few, samples are brought in to the customer’s home to choose fabrics, colors and styles.
“We are a fully insured shop-at-home dealer so customers can see the products in the context of where it will be,” Roberts commented. “We also provide an exact quote on the spot, not just an estimate, and that includes taxes, delivery, installation and the products themselves, all in one quote.”
One of the main reasons to choose window coverings is for privacy, most notably for bathroom windows and master bedroom windows.
“Window coverings also offer a sense of security,” noted Roberts, explaining that having them for kids’ bedroom windows is a motivating factor. “Window coverings are great for keeping people from looking into rooms.”
Window coverings also help to shield the interior of the home from the effects of the sun and are proven products at reducing energy costs.
“Some window coverings can reduce energy loss by up to 80%, so some of those products essentially pay for themselves over time because of the energy efficiency they bring to the home,” stated Roberts.
Among the most popular window coverings include motorized shades. Roberts stands behind the Hunter Douglas brand, which is known for high quality products and excels in automation and motorization.
“Motorized shades allow you to set as many schedules as you want,” explained Roberts. “You can have them open at sunrise and then close at sunset. You can also have them set on different schedules in other rooms. These can even be controlled from a smart phone while you are away from home.”
Other popular items include Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shadings, Pirouette® window shades, and the Nantucket™ window shadings, which are made of sheer fabric designed to filter out the brightness, glare and UV rays from the sun while also protecting furniture and flooring from fading.
After the window coverings are installed, Roberts and his team do a quality check and instruct the customer on how to use the products and will continue to provide service after the sale. During the first year after installation, any parts and labor required for any repairs are free. After that time, the manufacturer’s warranty kicks in and and pays for replacement parts.
