In Home Consultation
Mike and I really enjoy meeting you in your home. It gives us an idea of your style and allows for easier window covering selection. It makes a big difference when you can see how lighting and decor in your space play off of your selected window coverings.
My nickname for Mike is "MacGyver". Who remembers that show from the late 1980's?? MacGyver could do anything! There is no installation that Mike can not do. With his knowledge of tools and years of installing he really does a great job. My roll in the whole process is "chief unboxer". I gladly turn over any power tools to the expert! With the power of the largest window covering company standing behind us we are able to offer the best guarantees in the industry. We proudly stand behind our 5 years "NO QUESTIONS ASKED" Guarantee. If for any reason be it the kids, pets, glass of red wine or anything else your window covering becomes damaged we will replace it at no cost to you. We also offer a limited life time manufacturer's warranty. We will repair or replace your blind. We offer great peace of mind stylishly!
Meet the office staff
Mike and I have plenty of help in the office. Meet Henry and Scout. Their main job is to notify us when FedEx arrives to make a delivery so we can greet the driver. They also keep my feet warm on a cold day as I am entering in orders.
Also serving Lake Gaston and surrounding area
We are fortunate enough to call Lake Gaston our home away from home. Mike built our home in the West Winds subdivision located between Hub Quarter and Lyons Creek in 1993. We have several Budget Blinds clients all around the lake and dedicate time throughout the week for in home consultations and installations. Our most popular window covering has been for sun rooms and screened porches are the roller/solar shades. Several of the fabric choices can block out 95% or the damaging rays and heat from the sun without compromising on the view. They are fantastic for that reason.
We recently completed this addition off our master bedroom. It is our retreat when our adult children and all their friends are down. I love the softness of these woven woods. The soothing color allows the eye to be carried to the outdoors. It it were a dark color your eye would stop at the window. I also love the texture they create in a room. Our woven woods come in many styles and colors.
