We’ll be happy to help you determine your best path.

Common Window Treatment Issues

  1. If any of the following is true for you, it might be time for a change:
  2. You have trouble adjusting or raising or lowering your blinds
  3. Your window treatment’s slats are broken or discolored
  4. The fabric on your window shades has faded
  5. Your blinds don’t close properly
  6. You have dangerous dangling cords
  7. Your shades are in an out-of-reach spot and you can’t adjust them easily
  8. You are tired of the same old look

Trouble Adjusting Blinds or Shades

As they age, some blinds or shades begin not to operate properly. Sometimes, it’s an easy repair. However, if it’s not something fixable, maybe it’s time for a change. Consider Hunter Douglas Window Fashions, which offer the most comprehensive collection blinds, shades, and shutters available today. Plus, they have a window covering option that is sure to meet anyone’s budget!

Issue With Slats or Fabric

After time, blinds and shades could show damage from harmful UV rays, such as cracking, warping, fading, and yellowing. However, today’s more efficient models offer incredible UV protection that prevents the products from damage. For example, Hunter Douglas Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters and Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds are guaranteed not to warp or yellow. Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades are made from a polyester fabric with a white backing facing the outside to eliminate fading.

Operations Solutions

If your window treatments have dangling cords, that can be hazardous to children and pets. Consider replacing your corded window treatments with a cordless option such as the Hunter Douglas LiteRise™ operating system. Or go with motorization, which offers safety as well as convenience for those hard-to-reach windows. Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization lets you operate your blinds or shades remotely, even when you aren’t home.
