When decorating our new apartment at The Arlington in Charlotte, I found A Shade above most helpful. Angela was helpful in making creative decisions and delivering and installation in a timely fashion. I would recommend A Shade Above to friends and family and would absolutely use them again.

I had an excellent experience with A Shade Above. Chad was knowledgeable and helped me choose the perfect plantation shutters for my great room. They were priced competitively and installed professionally. The shades are beautiful and reduce the light and heat so thoroughly that the whole family can finally enjoy the room at all times of day and all seasons. I am very happy with the whole process!!.

Both Chad, the Sales Representative who measured our windows, and Michael, the installer, were very professional and very pleasant. They both were great representatives of your business. I would definitely recommend your company to friends and neighbors. This is the second time we have had your service. You have an excellent product.

Both Michael and the man who installed my shutters were excellent, very attuned to detail and very eager to be sure I was satisfied. Excellent staff and excellent company.
