Recent Review: Overall, it went well. The shutters were well made and attractive. They fit the windows properly, and were easy to install. I had one window that was very unusual and they worked with me to determine the correct measurements. One shipment had a broken piece, but they immediately arranged for a replacement piece to be made & shipped. I will definitely use them again, for my remaining windows.

Recent Review: We were in the middle of having all new Pella windows & wood trim installed in our home when a question arose. We needed to know whether we should have the wood trim installed on certain windows, since we were going to be installing wood plantation shutters. Our new windows did not have enough depth to do an inside mount, so we knew we needed an outside mount. We just didn't know whether we should install the shutters directly to the wall, or whether they should be installed into the new wood trim. I called Ed after getting his name on Angie's List. He was friendly and helpful, and came to our house the next morning, before the window installers arrived, so he could advise us on this issue before the window installation was going to take place. He was professional; he answered my initial call and when he said he would call back with his availability, he did as he said. I appreciated that he came to my home on short notice since we were in the middle of a project and needed a quick answer. The only thing I didn't like is that he charged $60 for the visit, and that did not include any window measurements - it was only for answering the question I described above. He seems to be very experienced with installing window treatments, and is the head or second installer for area JCPenney stores, though he is not an employee of Penneys. He did not install any window treatments, so I can't comment on his work quality.

Recent Review: Laurie was fantastic to work with, she came to our home multiple times to consult with us on design and ensure we chose the right products and colors to meet our needs. She was always on time, friendly, and willing to go above and beyond. Her prices were very reasonable for what we got (custom window treatments in nearly the entire house), and everything turned out beautiful and high quality. We would highly recommend Laurie and will use her again if needed in the future.

Recent Review: Dan Dorn was exceedingly pleasant to work with from the beginning to the end, displaying one of the most professional, efficient, fair-priced services I've ever had the pleasure of using.  He and his installer were always prompt, respectful, and continuously interested in doing their best to provide me with exactly what I wanted.  Once the ordered product was in, they installed everything in an unexpectedly timely fashion.  The installed plantation shutters are extremely attractive and exceedingly easy to care for.  I would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone!!

Recent Review: Jay and his partner arrived on time to show us their product and to take measurements for shutters in my mother's family room. They were very friendly and professional and answered all our questions. We received a quote. We liked the product and quote( about $600 less than a competitor) and placed the order within a few days. We were told that it would take at least 8 weeks, but we called after about 6 weeks to find out how the order was going. Jay called back to let us know that the shutters would be ready in about 2 more weeks. The installation was scheduled. Jay called on the day on the installation, and they were able to come earlier than we anticipated. The installation went without a hitch. They even asked to use the vacuum and cleaned up the entire family room. We love our dark wood shutters, and highly recommend Pittsburgh Blinds to anyone needing window treatments.

Recent Review: Nest Expressions was one of three such companies I contacted to provide information for replacing 12 year old window blinds. I was thinking shutters but was open to other options. The owner, Mr Klein, visited my house & brought a full array of sample products. He demonstrated the products & explained the differences, pros & cons. When it was all said & done - I opted for my original plan to have shutters installed. I then had to decide among the three vendors as they each were able to provide shutters. I decided to use Nest Expressions as I preferred their product best among the three options. I did not want white + I didn't want a real wood product, so my only option was the Hunter Douglas product sold by Nest Expressions. These were a tad more $$ than I was budgeting for this project so I kept the other options in mind while working with Nest Expressions. In my dealings I was told that the sales tax is handled different for shutters as they're an installed product that becomes a permanent part of the structure. Mr. Klein looked into it on his end & it resulted in a cost reduction, so I decided to move forward. I also liked the fact that the Hunter-Douglas product had the shortest lead time & is USA-made. The Chinese product had twice the lead time & a different USA-made product had a longer manufacturing time. Once I decided to get them, I wanted them as quickly as possible. Mr Klein returned & measured each window specifically even though 5 of 6 were visually identical. He said the factory can make slight tweaks if there are size variations. I also posed a new question - was it possible to get a different frame color than the shutters color? I was told that the manufacturer won't do it. I was a bit disappointed, especially since my choice was the non-wood option - I would have preferred a white frame, but I went ahead with the order. I liked the composite material better since it requires less care than real wood & is not subject to warping. Once the shutters arrived, I was contacted for an installation date. The guys showed-up on time & worked quickly. They were neat & cleaned-up any debris. They also took away my old blinds. After the installation, Nest Expressions agreed to delay processing of my 50% balance due by a few days, so that my credit card would kick over to the next billing cycle, helping me spread out my recent purchases to better align with my income stream.

Recent Review: I can't say enough good things about this company. I called to get a shutter put on our front door about a week before Irma. While the shutter hadn't come in yet Lance made sure our front door was secure with shutters. No money has been exchanged yet and everything has been verbal due to circumstances. He even checked on our home after the storm and sent us pictures. This is the kind of person I like to do business with. A kind, honest, man of his word. Thank you so much for giving us peace of mind

Recent Review: Chris and his team were great! They arrived on time and completed the work in a timely fashion. The new shutters and painted front door look fantastic! We know that reaching the gutters is a difficult task with the way our house is situated on our property but they completed the work without any issues. Chris even noticed that we needed another area of the exterior painted and he took care of this job too! We will definitely call on Sweet Success again for any handyman work that is needed!

We requested Kevin (installer) because he completed a project several months ago.  When he returned he completed the tasks in a timely and professional manner.  Kevin is an excellent example of what we expect from HMMs.  Thanks to Kevin the house looks great!  Thanks Kevin.

We've had Bill at our house about 4 times to install shutters. We weren't satisfied with the shutters on one occasion and Bill took them back no questions asked and installed the correct shutter upon arrival. Very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend him to anyone looking for shutters.
