"I Would Highly Reccomend"

Building a new home brings all types of challenges but meeting Chad Connie and Scott of A Shade Above made the experience of choosing shutters and shades a real breeze. Friendly and helpful does not begin to describe our experience with these professionals. I would highly recommend A Shade Above.

"A Perfect Job"

This is the second time I have contracted with ASA and once again it was a perfect job.

"Great Customer Service"

I've exclusively used ASA for window coverings since my house was completed in 2017. ASA has a great selection of high quality window coverings. Angela knows her product lines, has good fashion sense and provides great customer service. ASA's installers are professional and have never made any mis-measurements or other mistakes on any of my jobs. Highly recommend.

"Very Reasonably Priced!"

Exceptional products and service! We added plantation shutters to our windows at our beach condo and we can not believe the difference. Very reasonably priced! Would recommend 100%!

"A Shade Above the Competition"

Brandy did an outstanding job measuring our new home for shades and facilitating with the team a suuccessful installation. Communications and follow-up were top notch and, above all, delivery was faster than expected during these difficult supply chain challenges and the pricing was very competitive. They all went more than a shade above the competition and that's speaking from a wealth of experience with other providers.
