What To Expect At Your Denver In-Home Shutter Consultation

March 26, 2019

Before you determine what window covering to get, some companies, like Sunburst, recommend an in-home consultation. By bringing the treatments to you, we can show you how different shutters, blinds, and shades would match up to your windows. Now you can create an informed decision by understanding how each window treatment looks with your actual windows.

But what happens during an in-home consultation? And how will meeting a representative in your home enable you to better choose the perfect window treatment? Sunburst is a leader in these in-home consultations, and here’s what you will experience at your appointment.

Walking Through A Typical In-Home Shutters Consultation

Start by arranging an appointment by contacting your local representative. If you already can picture the perfect coverings for you window, like our Polywood® plantation shutter, then we will make it a point to bring you some options available for your preferred product. We will also show additional treatments, so you can be sure that your room matches your ideal.

After we come to your house, we’ll sit down and figure out what you want in a window treatment. We’ll look at your lighting, privacy, and energy efficiency ideas, and we’ll ask about hard-to-reach or specialty-shaped windows. Your rep will also want to know how the room is used and what style you are trying to attain. We want to execute your final vision, so the more you can explain, the better.

We might show you many different samples to see which ones complement your interior design and protects your windows. Most people need to explore a few different product lines, like comparing Polywood with our real-wood Ovation® shutters or finding the best stain to match the walls. We’ll also find all the options available for the covering, like available colors, louver sizes, or hidden tilt-rods.

After you decide on a treatment, we’ll find percise measurements of your windows. We will typically measure the windows throughout the house—even if you only need to buy window treatments for some of your windows. We do this because many of our clients ask to order additional window treatments with just a phone call. At the end of the appointment, we will guide you through a detailed, written quote, so there are no phantom numbers on your invoice.

Red Flags For A Bad In-Home Shutter Consultation

While we are sure that Sunburst will perform compentent in-home consultation, there are some things you should never witness from any window treatment salesperson. After all, the quality of the consultation usually equals the quality of the window treatments.

Primarily, your consultant should respect your home. The rep should arrive when promised, with all samples requested, and offer to prevent floor scuffs with shoe booties. Your consultant should always have product and company literature and pricing details.

In regards to pricing, you should expect a full written quote. Don’t accept a vague guess, scrawled on a blank page or the back of a business card. And never accept pricing information without window measurement. You want to know how much product and installation should cost. Finally, search for any references and online reviews to feel confident in your order.
