What Should I Do If I Want to Buy Outdoor Blinds?
If you are wanting to buy outdoor blinds there a number of things we would recommend.
- Get multiple quotes – just because a company says they have a sale or the sales rep says its a great deal doesn’t mean it is.
- Get specifics on the quote – trying to compare quotes can be difficult. Details on quotes are often scarce. Taking notes is a great way to ensure you can compare apples with apples. (we include a notes section in our brochure for this reason)
- Remember that the quality of the job has a lot to do with the installer – Products may be similar but if a great product is installed poorly – the end result is poor. So make sure you trust who is installing the job not just the company selling the job. It can be difficult to get things fixed after the installer leaves.
