As you start the process, rest assured that the experts at Shutter Guy will be with you every step of the way. We will walk you through the various custom blinds and shades available and find the right tilting or lifting options to fit your situation. Once you have made your selection, our certified installers will come to you to measure your windows. They’ll take into account numerous factors, including the following:
- The depth of your window opening or casing
- Whether your windows lift up or have a crank handle
- What kind of molding you have around your windows
- How much room you have around the molding
With that information in mind, our window treatment specialists will be able to hone in on the type of new window treatments that will work best for you, including whether to mount them inside or outside your window frame.
For Inside Mount
With many of our customers, mounting the treatment on the inside of the frame is popular. Benefits of the interior mount include that it provides a cleaner look at the window, that it allows your molding to be a decorative element, that the window treatment can complement instead of interfere with draperies, and that energy costs can be reduced with the blind or shade closer to the glass.
For Outside Mount
Outside mounting of your window treatments works well in specific applications. An outside mount covers the entire window and can provide a uniform look. Outside mounting can be best if the depth of your window isn’t enough for the treatment to mounted on the inside, you want the treatment to be off the window when raised, the window frame has some sort of obstruction, your window is a specialty shape, you want to cover the window trim, you have a window crank handle or alarm sensor that impeded interior mounting, or you want total privacy with no light gap. Our professional installers will help you determine which type of installation is best for your situation and will ensure that your installation is perfect. Before they leave your home after installing your treatments, you will fully understand how to operate and care for your new blinds or shades.
