"Best Service We've Ever Received!"

We have ordered plantation shutters in numerous homes previous to this but this was by far the best product and service we ever received! From the first phone call, to the diligence measuring, the customer service for installation and the follow up was stellar start to finish. We are building our new home soon and I will be calling on this team again!

We ordered shutters and a few shades for our new home, and Brandy made the process so easy and enjoyable.

They were professional and timely on install day. We are so happy with how everything looks!
