What a pleasure it is to do business with you! Besides being friendly, helpful, and professional, your measurements and installations are always perfect! You outfitted us with not only window film for our 3,000 square foot condo with wrap-around floor to ceiling glass but also helped us choose just the right honeycomb shades to match our décor throughout the condo. Whenever someone asks whom we'd recommend, there's never a moment's hesitation: Budget Blinds and you, of course! Thank you for helping us settle into our place in paradise with your sound and tasteful advice! W. Davidson, Ed.D.

During our house search in Lakewood Ranch in 2008, we were discussing window treatments, contractors and such with one of the sales representatives and she suggested we contact Ron Ford at Budget Blinds for any window treatments we wanted. We did contact Ron and it’s turned into one of the best decisions we’ve made. Since we closed on our house, Ron and his folks have installed Luminettes throughout the entire house. This was done in several phases as we made decisions for each living area. As the house was being used as a vacation house during that time, Ron and his staff had complete access to the house to carry out the installation without either of us being present. We were delighted with the work performed and the care taken regarding the our house and belongings. Having moved into the house several months ago, we decided to install plantation shutters in several of the rooms. Again, we turned to Ron and all the folks at Budget Blinds. The shutters have been installed and we are very pleased with the finished product. Throughout my professional life, whether as Director of Architecture and Construction at a New Jersey-headquartered international financial services firm, an independent small business owner or as Assistant Director of Interior Design at a major Houston-based architectural firm, I have dealt with innumerable vendors. Some have been atrocious, most have been acceptable and a precious few have been outstanding. I’m very glad to say that Ron Ford and the entire staff at Budget Blinds fall into the outstanding category. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of an extremely professional, well-priced, window treatment provider. Jose L. Suarez

Jason just finished installing our Signature blinds in two hours and five minutes. I am so pleased with how beautiful they look. Paul and I have worked with many contractors since moving into our new home. Your firm has been outstandingly reliable and professional. You have delivered on every promise. I am impressed. I will happily recommend you to my friends and call you when we need window treatments in the future. Thanks to you and Shannon--Jason too! Sincerely, Susan Hagglund

Thank you so much for transforming my windows into perfection! -- the shutters on the windows as well as those on the sliding door are exceptional in quality and appearance as well as fairly priced. As is my usual custom with most of my more significant purchases, I research product and company to smitherines; I am irritatingly thorough, and your company came out on top. Your expertise, professionalism, product knowledge, and stellar customer service (great sense of humor, too!) as well as that of your personable exceptionally competent staff are unsurpassed. From my initial contact with your friendly company, who followed up quickly with a (free) in-house measurement & comprehensive quote, and then efficient installation of the finished product, was a totally pleasant experience. You can bet I will recommend your company anytime the opportunity arises. Warmest regards, Pat

"I've dealt with at least four or more window treatment companies in my 12 years in Florida, but my latest experience with Budget Blinds Sarasota, especially with owner Ron Ford, was by far the most pleasant. They are comprehensive in their service, offer the very best warranties, and the service and installation staff was friendly and efficient. I will be buying all my window treatments from Budget Blinds Sarasota from now on. They have tremendous prices, but more importantly, they offer tremendous value." Barbara Dougherty Rosedale

Every time you have put blinds in for me they always have been the best at a great price and you will always get my business.

What a difference blinds make... I used Budget Blinds in my Old World Spainish house, how beautiful they looked. Now living in a contemporary home and I did every window and door with white plantations shutters, I just love them...beauty & function. They have changed the look of the home to a polished look. Service was friendly and professional. I also got the shutters put in my office down the road, the look is professional and clean. Anyone wanting to have privacy and view, with any window dressing should contact...Budget Blinds in Bradenton. Sincerely, Susan Shull Vasilieff

We've had the pleasure of working on three apartments with you and your staff at Budget Blinds. Your attention to details, meticulous measuring, and extremely professional installation have always insured that the job is done right. We like that everything is explained in detail before the order is processed and that you don't cut any corners, which means no surprises. Jason, your installer, is courteous and efficient -- everything is clean after the installation. The few times we've needed service over the years has been as simple as making one phone call with a very prompt response time from you. This level of customer satisfaction you strive for in your company shows us the dedication you feel for your customers. Thanks for doing a great job, always. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Budget Blinds to friends, which we have done many times. Homeowners Lyndy & David Caplan

I have used Budget Blinds to put new blinds in my last two houses. They do a great job, they were recommended to me from friends that had also used them at their house. I have also recommended them to several people who also were very happy with their work and with the blinds. If you are looking for good quality blinds at a reasonable price give them a call and they will have your house looking great in no time at all. Tammy McCutchan

I just wanted to send you a note to say how excited and pleased we are with our new shutters! They look great in our new home and I love the fact I can adjust them to any privacy level for any room. The fit is perfect and the color is great with our trim. You did such a good job going over your selections, helping me decide on the best ones for our home, measuring just right and installing them quickly and efficiently! As you recall this is my second home that I have worked with you on and I'll certainly recommend you to all our friends. Thanks so much.

I moved into my new home two years ago. For practical reasons, the first thing I needed was to get some window treatments for privacy. I called Budget Blinds to get an estimate. A representative, came quickly and gave me a very reasonable estimate. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, personable and very professional. Their service was the best of any service I needed for any aspect of my home. And this has remained to be the case way after the initial major installment, whenever I needed them to come out for a few very minor repairs. Just last week, a newly adopted dog (soon to be gone, as a result!), ruined my most expensive window treatment made by Hunter-Douglas. I was prepared to have to pay full price for a replacement. The day after the installer came to re-measure my window, much to my surprise, I received a call from Budget Blinds telling me that they looked up my original order and discovered that I was still under the exclusive warranty that only Budget Blinds has with Hunter-Douglas. Therefore, I only had to pay for installation and shipping. This was a SIX HUNDRED DOLLAR DIFFERENCE! Now I'm REALLY sold on Budget Blinds. I am a VERY satisfied customer of Budget Blinds and would highly recommend anyone to use them. They're a true find! Arlene Greene

I would like to write this letter on behalf of our realty firm and it's experience with Budget Blinds of Sarasota. I have personally dealt with them and their staff for over two years and have referred them to over 30 of my clients who have purchased new homes. Every client has been thrilled with their products, service and staff without one complaint. In these unsure times, with so many companies going out of business, it's good to know I have a solid, reputable company to offer my clients who base their principles on integrity and offer quality products at a great price with great customer service. I have used them personally and I would recommend them to anyone looking for window treatments, blinds, shutters, bedding, etc. A real win for the customer. Thomas Smola
