"Remember window shutters are a lot like airplanes. Some cost less than others, but there are no cheap airplanes."
In other words - window shutters are a little more expensive than blinds. However, if you are going for the upscale appearance, the look of luxury, window shutters are the best way to go.


Four Mistakes to Avoid When Purchasing Home Window Shutters In Houston

Choose the right shutters company to buy from - Get this right and you will save yourself enormous amounts of grief and money and will not likely make the other three mistakes. There have been a lot of changes in the shutters industry in recent years. New window shutters manufacturers and dealers are entering the Houston market every month offering you great low shutters prices. But the quality of their window shutters is just not there. Some shutters dealers are here today and gone tomorrow leaving you without a warranty. You need to find a local home window shutters dealer that you can trust and has been around for several years.

I, Ron Guidry, owner of Priced Right Blinds have been around the Houston shutters industry coming up on 50 years and I have seen far too many times where people have paid their deposits but never received their window shutters. You also need a dealer that can educate you about shutters product selection, features and benefits so you are empowered to make the right decisions for your situation. Be aware of sole manufacturer reps that sell only one brand of shutters. They may make a good product but their features or prices may not be the best choice for your project.

Choose the right shutters product - choosing the wrong interior window shutters can lead to years of dissatisfaction. This can be easily avoided by taking the time to do your research. Search web sites. Ask friends and acquaintances about their Houston shutters purchases, who they bought them from, etc. You may have had home window shutters before but find out what is new. This is where a good Houston shutters dealer can guide you through the maze and blow away the fog to help you discover the window shutters that are perfect for you and your budget. For more information call our office 713-224-7647 and ask your most important questions. Or go to our web site: Priced Right Blinds for more information on shutters in Houston.

Get it installed right - this is the number one cause of window shutters problems. Even a good shutters product can go bad if it is installed wrong. And it is the one area that you - the customer - have the least direct control over. You are really at the mercy of your Houston shutters dealer who is the one that designates who will install your interior window shutters. If installed right - every time you look at those beautiful window shutters from Priced Right Blinds - you will get a warm fuzzy feeling for a job well done. The worst thing that can happen is that you get a heavy sinking feeling wishing you had done something different. If you are not satisfied that you will get a proper interior window shutters installation, don't be afraid to ask to see some recent installations by your designated crew. The proof really is in the pudding.

Interior Window Blinds - Guaranteed Best Fit

When measuring for interior window blinds, this method is NOT recommended for a novice. But it is the method used by our Trained Professional Staff when we measure your windows for new blinds in the Houston Texas area. This technique insures that the clearance gaps on the side of your interior window blinds are kept to their absolute minimum. This gives you the maximum privacy for your windows.

There are 3 measurements you must take for each window.

Wider at the bottom
Use Top Width plus ⅛"

Wider at Top
Use Top Width provided Top Width
Minus ½" is less than Bottom Width
by at least a ¼"

Wider in the Middle
Use Top plus ⅛"

There Are Four Basic Shapes for Height:

Out-of-Level Sill
Measure longest height
and add 1/4"

Out-of-Level Header
Measure shortest side
and add ¼"

Bowed Header
Measure shortest height
and add 1/4"

Bowed Sill

All of these possibilities must be considered, measured and calculated into the final size of your new interior window blinds. If not, your blinds will not look or fit properly. The purpose of blinds in the first place it to let light in when you want it and keep the privacy in when you need it.

The Price Per Square Foot Deception Dirty Little Secret of the Shutter Industry

May 28, 2016

Shutters are sold by the square foot. Don't fall into the trap of just comparing shutter price per square foot. You may hear a lot about price per square foot but that is not the whole story.

There is another factor to consider and that is the formula for computing square feet. The basic formula in inches is width x height / 144. Sounds simple but here is where the slight of hand appears. Some companies round up to the nearest whole inch and then do the calculation. The square footage(sf) may compute 17.1 but then that gets rounded up to the next whole square foot which in this case is 18 nearly 1 whole sf added to your cost per window times 10, 20 windows I think you get the picture. Another variation of this is called frame to frame square foot pricing. This involves using the original opening width and height and adding the frame dimension. This is an OK method but only if it is exact no rounding. Some companies use original opening size and do not add for frame and do not round producing the smallest sf factor. When a company uses rounding in their formula distortions will occur raising the actual price by as much as 15%. So remember the square foot formula times price per square foot affects the bottom line and the bottom line is the bottom line of comparison.
