When you’re ready to schedule an in-home consultation with the Southern Shutters, Shades & Blinds team, we’ll start by setting up the most convenient time to discuss possible window treatments and the styles you’d want to see in your own home. This consultation is 100% complimentary! Our salesperson will arrive at your home, measure your windows, provide various options, and come up with an accurate quote for the entire project. Once you’ve decided that we’re the right fit for your goals, a 50% deposit will be requested. Your final payment is due on the date of the installation.
No matter what products you order, we do ask that customers remove any existing window treatments before we begin installation; furniture will also need to be moved out of the way. If you need our installer to help with this process, just let us know! We’ll allocate more time to the process. Our top goal is to provide a smooth and efficient installation every time – no exceptions.
We manufacture every order of interior plantation shutters in Manor, TX. The production cycle typically takes anywhere from 7 to 9 weeks. We will request your paint information; if you don’t know this, we’ll be happy to match it for you for no additional charge! This process is easy – we’ll purchase a gallon of paint for your order, dip a sample, and mail it to you. Once you’ve approved the shade, just send us a stamped and addressed card that contains your signature. The same thing will happen when you approve a stain. Stains can be notoriously difficult to match properly, so you’ll three hand-delivered samples. One of our professionals will be there to help you make a confident decision. If your stain blend is not correct, they’ll have the proper eye to make necessary adjustments and provide you with a satisfactory result.
This approval process is completely independent from the actual shutter production. In ideal circumstances, we will have the finish of your shutters approved well in advance of the actual application. Then, you will get a call from our installation coordinator; they’ll help you schedule the most convenient time for your delivery and installation – in most cases, this call will come at least 7 to 10 days in advance of the actual appointment. Our coordinator will also provide a half-hour or hour-long window during which the installer will arrive, as well as a rough estimate of how long this process should take.
Our salesperson will meet with you first to measure your openings that require blinds before providing a precise quote. During this time, you will also be able to pick out the color of your new blinds from a sample deck. Once the decision is made, a 50% deposit is required. Our installation coordinator will call you at least three to five days in advance of the installation date to schedule the ideal time.
When ordering Hunter Douglas products, delivery dates may vary due to where the product is made and the type of materials you have selected. Your factory representative will be sure to discuss the most likely schedule with you and provide a time range for the final delivery. A 50% deposit is required once decision to purchase has been finalized. 3 to 5 days prior to the installation date, our installation coordinator will contact you to schedule.
