Testimonials

Yesterday I had Eric Osmun of Budget Blinds measure my windows for cellular blinds and help me with color, etc. It was a great experience. He's the owner and operator of the business so he's offered to store my blinds in his garage (the blinds will be fabricated and ready in 2 weeks) until the moment I'm ready for them to be installed. The blinds are made by one of the foremost blind manufacturer's in the country so the quality is going to be good. And he has a broad range of prices. He left me with several of his business cards in case any of you are interested. He does all kinds of blinds, drapes etc. I know those of you on the second and third floors might not be thinking so much of your windows but for me it was essential that I get ahead of this issue. So when you're ready, I feel I can recommend Eric's Budget Blinds to you. He's pleasant, knowledgeable, and will personally come out to solve any post-installation problems. gailO

I replaced all my old wooden blinds with gorgeous honeycomb blinds. Eric was unfailingly patient and competent. One of the blinds developed a problem with a motor and Eric came, inspected, ordered a new blind, delivered and installed it for free!! Now that's service. When I phoned about the problem blind, Judy answered the phone from a convention in Las Vegas, made an appointment for me, and was amazingly helpful. You can't go wrong with these folks. The best.

When we first moved to our house in Scotts Valley, there were zero window treatments. We did our research and had 3 companies come and bid the job. Eric was very competitive and we did like that it was him that comes to bid the job and that it's him who installs it. It's just him and his wife, so there's no worries about anything getting lost in translation. They did about 3/4 of our windows in plantation shutters, which turned out gorgeous. We just had them come out to do another room with the same shutters this morning, which is a Saturday. Love that. The shutters arrived to them on Friday, they called me the same evening to set up install and offered me today. I was thrilled and it looks awesome. I really can't say anything negative about the company. They've returned all my calls within a reasonable amount of time and they've come through with all their promises. Eric also gives very realistic timelines, which is very important to me. I do not like when someone tells me that it will be here in 2 weeks and it ends up being 5. We really do appreciate that it's a local business, as well and not a huge chain. You can definitely feel at ease using this company. Plantation shutters are not inexpensive, so I would not trust just anyone to do them. I want them to last and I am confident in using Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz.

Great service from Eric and Judy. They scheduled an appointment quickly, arrived on time, quickly helped us focus on what we wanted, offered a fair price, and installed the blinds with no hassles. They were a pleasure to work with and made the whole experience easy

For us, it was a five star experience. I was on my way to 41st Ave. to the blind place there and as I approached Hwy. 17 at Mt. Hermon, to my right was a Budget Blinds truck with a Scotts Valley address. Hadn't heard of them before. So I went to 41st, got my estimate but said I wanted to call Budget Blinds before deciding. I came home, called and Joan answered, said Eric was on a call but would call when he got back. We were in the midst of moving/selling and on a tight timeframe Anyway, they fit us in to make sure they could meet our timeframe. They were friendly, gave a great price, saving us $85 for two windows and their price included installation, so actually saved us another hundred at least, and great service and even came in with the blinds a few days early. Would absolutely recommend their service and workmanship and great attitude. Was a pleasure doing business with them.

Wonderful service, quality workmanship! This husband and wife team just finished installing my shutters and I am thrilled. These two are very experienced and were a delight to work with. Couldn't be happier with the outcome. Price was right too!

Don't let the name fool you...while the prices are definitely competitive, the service, quality and care you get from Eric Osmun and his wife, Judy, at Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz is top of the line! We selected window treatments for almost every window in our home-- from stylish, yet functional, black-out shades to gorgeous curtains. We were so happy with all the choices we were given, as well as the helpful advice. Three years later our window treatments still look great and we're treated like friends whenever we've contacted Eric and Judy (like when the hamster chewed the blinds!). I highly recommend Budget Blinds!

In September of 2010 my wife and I completed a remodel of our home in Felton which also included all new window coverings. We looked at some different companies but we were also looking for a local company that knew what their products were. After speaking to a few different outfits we decided on having Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz/Scotts Valley do the work. The owner,Eric and his wife Judy were very knowledgeable and very fun to work with.Eric knew what would be the best shades for each window and he had plenty of different styles to show us. We also had remote controlled shades installed in our skylights. Eric made sure that everything worked right. We knew we had found the right guy because we ran into a glitch with the remote controlled skylight shades not operating correctly. It turned out to be a Hunter Douglas defect and Eric got on the phone and spoke with Hunter Douglas as well as his Budget Blinds corporate people. It took a little while for Hunter Douglas to replace these shades because they realized that their 3rd party manufacture of a electronic component was not working out. They promised that when they redid this electronic problem that we would receive all new skylight shades. They said it would probably be about 4 months. Eric told us to keep the existing shades and when the new shades arrived that he would come back out to reinstall them. Eric kept his word and in May of this year we had our new shades up and running. Installing these shades was not all that easy because the skylights are up about 15 feet and Eric worked pretty hard. We have been extremely satisfied with the results and especially with Eric and Judy's knowledge and expertise. I highly recommend Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz for anyone looking at buying new window coverings for their home. Also they are local and fair on their pricing as well as making sure that you are completely satisfied. Thanks for the great work. Stewart Hill

My experience with this company could not have been better! Having just purchased a new home with no window coverings, I needed to get window treatments up ASAP! Eric and Judy worked with my schedule and were professional and accommodating. They offered a wide variety of products and were able to stay within my price range. Eric was very helpful in helping me select the products that worked best in each room and there was never any sales pressure. I am very pleased with the quality of the blinds for the price I paid. I highly recommend Budget Blinds, a great experience!

I could not be happier with both the service and product provided by Eric and Judy at Budget Blinds. After buying a new house, and needing window coverings for the entire house, I had two different companies come out for estimates. Prices were very close, but Budget Blinds easily won out in customer service, as Eric spent the time to educate me, help me select colors and was generally a pleasure to deal with. He was also able to offer me a single honeycomb blind for a very wide window, which the other company could not. Because of my budget, I started small - ordering coverings for only half of the windows, but Eric was patient and never pushy. He came out a second time when I was ready to move forward with the next batch of windows. He and Judy just came out today to install those, as well as a beautiful window film (looks like frosted glass, but better) Eric suggested for a 10-lite exterior door. It is the perfect solution for that door. I highly recommend this company - professional, punctual and they have a great product.

Eric and Judy Osmun of Budget Blinds helped us select the window treatments for many of our windows and then installed all the blinds and curtains we selected. From the first phone call, our experience with Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz has been OUTSTANDING! The quality of the merchadise, both blinds and curtains, is top-notch. We had so many lucious fabrics in every color to choose from when deciding upon our window treatments and Eric was very patient and helpful as I scoured every sample book for the right look! He was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and quick when installing the window treatments, which, by the way, look FABULOUS! Because we did our homework, I know the prices were competitive, though the service was way beyond "budget." We've had a few questions since the initial installation (for example, "What can we do now that the hamster has chewed the blinds?") and Eric and his wife, Judy, have provided fantastic, prompt follow-up with a home-town feeling. I highly recommend Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz to anyone needing window treatments!

Indomitable committment to quality. We had new windows put into our home and visited store after store to try to find just the right window coverings without any luck. Then we saw Eric's company van drive by our house one day and literally waved him down for help. He showed us many applicable and different selections his company offered and took precise laser measurements of all the windows and the rest is history. We opted for the stringless blinds with sheer fabric top and blackout bottom so these elegant yet modern looking blinds can be confirgured in three different ways and they are better than perfect! We are so happy with the blinds and so grateful for Eric's unsurpassable committment to delivering a quality product and his excellent customer service; he makes Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz THE COMPANY in the area to shop for blinds and all sorts of window treaments. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Hi Eric and Judy, I just wanted to say how pleased we are with the blinds. The mylar ones in the bedroom are very effective in helping keep that room comfortable on long sunny afternoons. Louise and Michael Forest Lakes, Felton

When I was researching blinds for my home I was overwhelmed at all of the possibilities. I called Budget Blinds and they came right over to my house with a variety of samples. In no time I had quality window coverings, completely installed in my kitchen and living room. The best thing was that the cost was no more than those that I researched on-line or at the local home improvement stores. I recommend anyone to check out Budget Blinds and schedule a free consultation in your home!

Budget Blinds helped us choose the best window coverings for our children's room. We needed room darkening shades with insulating properties. Eric and Judy were very professional and our experience with them was wonderful. The blinds were pricey but well worth the money. The installation was very fast and looks professional. We would absolutely recommend them to others!

This review as posted on Angie's List and Google: We bought black-out shades for our nursery. Eric & Judy Osmun were wonderful to work with. They had many options to choose from. There were no delays in the process of ordering, delivering and installation. Overall very professional and great service. We are so happy with our black-out shades! Not only is our baby sleeping better, but the shades really cut down on the heat from direct sunlight. Your service was great and prices very reasonable. I was impressed with all of the options and choices I had to choose from. Thank you for a wonderful experience!?

This reivew as posted on Superpages.com Mar 18, 2009 by Mary, I found Budget Blinds to be very helpful in all aspects of business. From the choice of fabrics to installation. Budget Blinds has every option for window treatments you could want. They go above and beyond in service. I am very happy with all the items we purchased and would not hesitate to call them for future window covering needs. A pleasure to do business with!

We had just moved to town and were looking for window blinds, and we were referred to you. You were the fastest to answer our questions and provided very responsive service in assisting with selection of the best blinds for our home. Your "after sale" customer service was impressive, and not often seen in businesses these days. We would recommend you to anyone. It was so nice doing business with you. Thank you.

"Thank you, thank you and thank you!" Why three times? Well, I have discovered that most circumstances in life involved three components. In the case of having my home furnished with blinds, I was looking for the three essentials. (1) Predictability (2) Service and (3) Product. You will note that I listed them according to my personal priorities in the fast pace twenty-first century. Fast, because everyone is in a hurry. People want today's needs met yesterday! Sadly, they don't always have the needed patience. In a true sense all of the components in any endeavor are linked together in order to make a cohesive whole. You will quickly notice that I listed them in their importance to me. Strange, very strange, that product was at the very last. This is because I am confident that most companies are equal in that category. It is also rather unique that I would list predictability before service. Why so? How can a company give good service if it isn't predictable? The answer is a simple one: it can't. It was a pleasure and engaging to have you fulfill my need of new window coverings. Your professional attention to your business and craft was perfect in every way: My e-mail for an appraisal was responded promptly. You arrived for your appointment right on time and the manner you executed your trade was par excellence. It saddens me because I will not be needing your service again soon as meeting you and watching your method of good business acumen, all my windows now have budget blinds when originally I was going to do just the dining and living room! Naturally, of course, without hesitating, I would easily recommend your business to anyone who is contemplating new blinds for their abode. I know that they, like myself, will be extremely happy and continent with their purchase. I wish Judy and you continued success because doing business with you has certainly been a pleasure. It was also fun and will be remembered for a long time as I open my blinds every morning and close them every evening. Much love, Carol

Hello Eric & Judy, I just wanted to say "thank you" for the excellent care you have given to me! We have a Hunter Douglas Vertiglide in our bedroom that broke, something from what I understand does not usually happen with Hunter Douglas products. Eric from Budget Blinds came to my house within a couple of hours of placing a call to their company( on a Saturday no less). He spent a couple of hours fixing the blind, without a charge. In this day and age, this kind of service is rare. Eric was great and the blind works and hopefully, this time, it will work forever. Many thanks to you Eric, and to Judy for relaying the message to him. With best of holidays, The Fleming family
