Reviews in Baltimore for Installing Indoor Plantation Shutters
ANext Day Blinds
The shutters were installed today and they are beautiful. Well made, perfect fit, perfect color, experienced installers, and a great, attentive sales representative. Custom-make shutters installed in two weeks, amazing! I will be using NDB again in the future.

APerfect Fit Custom Shutters
I started by getting estimates from various companies that also "specialize" in blinds and shutters. I received estimates from other places in the range of $2000-$5000. I was thinking I would not be able to have this done and then I looked on Angies List and found this company. I sent an inquiry via email and was called back about 2 days later. We promptly set up an appointment to have someone come out and do an estimate. The estimator was on time, friendly, told us about all of our options and then quoted us a fantastic price! The wonderful thing is there is no middle man, the shutters are made in house which drastically cuts down on cost. I was so pleased to find I could get the job done for under $1000. The other great thing is that they didn't waste our time by requesting to come back and measure the windows multiple times as other companies said they would have to do. Although they gave us a timeframe of 4-6 weeks our shutters were ready in 2 weeks! We got them installed, they are beautiful and we love them. I will defintely use this company again.

They did an excellent job. I was very pleased with the results. It took 2 months from order to installation but I would do it again. It is hard to find businesses that do quality work. They called me every week to give me a status report on my order & I never worried that there would be problems. Everything that they told me would happen in the process happened as promised.

We met with four shutter and/or window treatment companies to get quotes on how much it would cost to install wood plantation shutters. This treatment was the best option for the type of windows we have, which only allow for outside mount window treatments, and we like the privacy and light control that blinds and shutters provide. After meeting with the first rep, I was discouraged and did not think we could afford shutters, so I moved on to the the idea of wood blinds. However, after realizing how much the outside mount wood blinds would stick out from the molding (almost 4 inches with the valence), I returned to the idea of shutters. I called the Louver Shop, one of the very few companies listed in the phone book under and quot;Shutters,and quot; and scheduled an appointment. Ronnie from the Louver Shop came to our home the very week I called. He was very thorough in explaining our options, showing us samples, showing us how the shutters would be attached to our frames, and taking measurements. He was able to write up our estimate right there at our dining room table, and I was shocked at the fact that this was something that we could make happen with our budget. My husband was so impressed that he was ready to sign on the dotted line, but I wanted to do a little more homework. I met with two other reps that week, and their shutters, which were composite material and not real wood, cost more than double the quote from the Louver Shop. Plus, the reps would not be the ones installing; they would have to send out different people for that. Ronnie not only came to give us the quote, but was also going to be the one who installed them. We signed the order on 8/7/12, and Ronnie came back to install all 16 shutters on 8/29/12. We could not be happier with the result. He is totally professional and careful, even taking care to wash his hands a number of times to prevent smudges on the sleek, gorgeous white shutters as he installed them. He was in and out of our home in under four hours. The windows look amazing! We are very confident that we got a very good value with these shutters and with this company. By the way, all the shutters are made in the U.S.A.!

The sales rep showed up early which was a good sign. I wanted to get plantation shutters on all my windows including my sliding glass door. I was told in my dining room I would have to cut off the piece at the bottom of my windows because they would interfere with the plantation shutters. Then for the sliding glass door she said there wasn't enough room to get bi-fold plantation shutter so she suggested a blind for that (which I never wanted I already had a curtain for the sliding glass door). The 2 bedrooms had no issues with doing plantation shutters. After spending over an hour with the sales rep. She said she would send me the final quote. Well that never happen. So I ended up going with another company. I would never suggest this company to anyone.

THE PLANTATION SHUTTERS WERE NOT CHEAP BUT I BELIEVE THAT THE PRICE WAS COMPETITIVE. THE WORK IS EXCELLENT AND IS GUARANTEED AS LONG AS YOU OWN YOUR HOME.

ANext Day Blinds
I recently purchased shutters from Next Day Blinds. First I must comment on the professionalism of the staff. Secondly, the sales person was very polite, informative , and efficient. I felt very confident with my choice of product. Finally I requested a quick delivery and installation due to the upcoming holiday. The salesman assured me he would do everything possible to accommodate my request. I was not disappointed. I would highly recommend this company . I can't wait for my family to see my new blinds on Easter!

Sales rep was on time. She answered all my questions. Took paint sample so that it would match my window trim. The quote was lower than I expected for custom blinds. Downside was the sales rep needed help to measure the windows. For the re-measure I was pushed into a date/time that really didn't work for me. I really didn't think the person that sets up the appointments was very professional. The person that did the re-measure was on time and answered anymore questions I had. Install day... they sent one person do do 8 windows. He was very professional and got it done pretty quickly for doing it all by himself. Over all I am truly happy with the look of the plantation shutters.

APerfect Fit Custom Shutters
We interviewed three companies for plantation shutters (all in-home consults). We were impressed with the quality of the Perfect Fit samples and the price relative to the others we interviewed (in the end, with a coupon, they seemed a little better than Next Day Blinds in-house shutters in terms of quality and price). Perfect Fit's focus on shutters was also important to us-- there were more options in terms of how we could design them to meet our needs-- where the breaks would be in the shutter, whether to do them as a single unit or separate units, how to mount them. These things made a big difference to us in how they looked and functioned-- it felt like a more custom product. The warranty was strong, too. The whole order/install process was pretty quick and efficient. Signed contract, final measure and then shutters installed in (I think) 4-5 weeks. Install went smoothly. Afterwards, I noticed that some of the tilt rods didn't fit as flush as I would have liked into the little notches and one of the sidelights seemed a little bowed and had a short hairline crack. I don't know if this should have been caught during the manufacturing process or was a result of the installation. In any case, Perfect Fit was very responsive and worked within our scheduling constraints to correct everything (they were here less than an hour and fixed it all). We're very satisfied with the end product. (If money was no object, I'd put the shutters elsewhere in the house, too.) We're very pleased with the impact this has made in the house-- they really are beautiful (I never thought I'd say that about a shutter...)

Beth and her team did a beautiful job from start to finish outfitting our home with beautiful wood plantation shutters. The entire team is very professional and helpful. I highly recommend using this company.
Recent Review: The members of Shenandoah Shutters are extremely professional. The first contact came in and measure the windows that were to be done. The second contact was with the guys who installed the shutters. In and out and they look wonderful. Can't be more pleased with these shutters.
Recent Review: Frank and Kristine are responsive, friendly and so professional. I had no idea what I wanted but after some quick consultations, they knew exactly what was best for our family. They are affordable and work with you.
Recent Review: We were exceptionally pleased with the Plantation shutters and shades installed by Sam Kugler's Home Fashions. Sam was very professional and punctual in his work with us. He was on time and courteous. We had several estimates for this work, but Sam us an excellent price. We decided to go with Kugler's based on the product (Hunter Douglas) and Sam's professionalism. He and his installer (John) arrived on time and worked quickly and efficiently. Although there was a minor problem with one of the shades, Sam corrected it immediately. We recommend Sam Kugler's Home Fashions without any qualifications. In addition, we've found that the installation of Plantation Shutters has made our new home cooler as well as more attractive.
Recent Review: Their work was outstanding. These are fully functional shutters that open and close so they need to fit with very close tolerances. The shutters fit like a fine pair of gloves. The paint was done to perfection with no signs of runs or missed spots and the color matched perfectly. The copper caps fit correctly and came with copper nails for installation. I could not be happier with their work and the price was the best around anywhere.

Recent Review: I just can not say enough about Homefix. From the guy who knocked on my door to the no pressure estimate all the way through the amazing follow up afterward. I literally cried when there were don't because the work and the workers were so amazing. A person knocked on my door and they were doing windows in the next neighborhood over, I was no in the market although I needed the work. I scheduled and estimate and the salesman Graham was fantastic. He took me through all the options and left it up to me. They seemed to be higher priced but I realize that for the quality I got a great and fair offer. The work was 10 times better than I thought. The new sliding glass door they completely gutted the opening and re trimmed everything so it looks and fits amazing, it literally changes my house and my kitchen temperature is better already. For the gutters they added a down spout and the drain so much better. They cleaned up well and they put mats on the floor. The installers asked questions and guided me through the whole process. I forgot to take my blinds down and even though they told me they do not remove the blinds they were so kind to do it for me. Even the follow up after was perfect. I encourage anyone to come by my address and see the door and gutters. The shutters trim and front door go in next month, i will write another review then!!! Thank you Homefix, i will refer everyone.
Recent Review: Where do I start? I have a large front window, larger than the average bay window and I was tried of living in a fishbowl. I had received an estimate from another company but the sales person seemed on automatic pilot. I checked out Angie's list and called Beltway Blinds. For the estimate, the technician was right on time. He provided plenty of samples to choose from. He understood exactly what I wanted and made a number of suggestions (some less costly options) so that I got exactly what I needed at a great price. Shortly after that, two more technicians came to my house to take the exact measurements. Both men were courteous, professional and knew what they doing. My shutters were special order and the guys promised that they would be ready to install in just over a month. Actually, the job was completed sooner. The install was fast and professional and they spent more than a few minutes talking to me about how to best care for my new shutters. What I really like was that they were meticulous about leaving the area spotless. I would recommend these guys (Beltway Blinds) to anyone looking for quality and service at a great price. Moving on to decorate another room and planning to call them back soon to take on the challenge of the windows in my office.
Recent Review: We were greeted in the showroom like old friends. We needed help deciding what kind of flooring to use, and we got patience, combined with knowledge of the products and their features and benefits. We expected it to take us a long time to decide, but with Adam and Stephanie's help, we were on our way in about an hour. The floors took some time to come in, as they were shipped from overseas, but Steve stayed in touch, letting us know when they were due to arrive, and then following up to schedule installation once they arrived. We were very pleased that they called on Monday to let us know the materials were in, and asked if they could install on Wednesday morning! Great turnaround time. The installers were professional and courteous. They took great care with our furniture and belongings. We stopped by last week to pick up a cleaning solution, and even though we weren't there to make another big purchase, we felt welcome and valued as customers. Great job, VERTICAL CONNECTION!
Recent Review: John came over to our house with samples of the product, measured our windows, and described the types of shutters we could order. We ordered shutters for our 3 bedrooms and for our dining room (which was about to be renovated). The shutters for the bedrooms were made and installed about 4-5 weeks after our order, and the dining room shutters were installed a few months later, after our renovations were complete. The installer was fabulous. He did not rush -- he was at our home for hours installing and making sure the seal was proper, and then he touched up the shutters. After each room was finished, he called me in to make sure I was happy with the installation before he moved on to the next room. We definitely will use this company when we're ready to install shutters in our sunroom and 4th bedroom.
