Hi!
We just bought a new home in Frisco and need wood blinds and plantation shutters installed. Does anyone recommend a company they have used? Any companies to avoid? I am looking for great quality and a great price. Thanks!

I got really good prices at Home Depot, half price of what 3 Day Blinds was charging. BUT how you are saving money is on the service. They do not come to your house with samples. You have to go to the store. And since they are a do it yourself store, you CAN do it yourself, or you can hire them for the measuring and installing. So, just FYI, they are great on price, but there is a lot of parts where you can DIY or you pay them to do it for you. It took a few weeks for the blinds to come in. Again, that is another area you save money.

I have worked with Janelle on blinds and shutters for countless new homeowners in the area. They have consistently offered the best prices ever on blinds and shutters. They have quite a selection of products and are great to work with. I can't say enough good things about Janelle, her products, her pricing, and her service. I recommend Janelle to everyone I know.

I second the recommendation for Janelle Dugas. We've used her several times. She's highly knowledgeable and great to work with. Better prices than we were able to find anywhere else. We always recommend her to others.

We compared a few places almost 5 years ago when we put in blinds and shutters. Over the years, we have slowly replaced all our blinds with plantation shutters and have used the same company every time. 3 Girls Running (Paula Tarter) is the name of the company. They use a company in McKinney that manufactures the blinds. At the time, they were the best price.
Good Luck!

Do not pay all the extra money to have professional come do this. Take the measurements of your windows and then go to Home Depot. The have plantation shutters and often run then on sale. They have machines that will cut them to your exact size. This is what we did and then my husband and I put them up. It was not hard all. I even shortened the length all by myself. It was simple.

I second Blind Impressions. We worked with Gary and couldn't be happier. We wanted the 2.5 inch blinds which were more expensive than the standard 2 inch and when Gary went to price them, he could receive them at a discount and passed the savings on to us. In the end, we paid almost the same as if we'd gone with the 2". We also had an issue with one of the blinds several months after our purchase / install and Gary came right out and fixed it free of charge. He definately wants happy customers. He'll come out and consult with you (he'll measure your windows, show you his options & provide you a quote) free of charge.

We built our home in 2000 and needed about 35 blinds. My husband is good at doing things around the house. He did all the measuring, we went to Home Depot and special ordered all the blinds. The brand is Levelor and we've had no issues whatsoever with them. Some of the blinds had to be special cut and everything was right the first time.

Now, you do have to know what you are doing and be willing to put in some sweat equity. We paid around $3500 for everything (we have some special sized and cut windows and some of the blinds were pricey) and my hubby did all the installing, etc. The blinds were delivered to us about 2 weeks after our order.

I'd order through Home Depot again if I needed to do this all over. It was easy and I know I saved money by hubby doing the install and not paying the extra markup for someone coming to my house to measure, bring samples, etc.

Good luck
