The Remarkable Ease of Local Window Blind Repair
Your window blinds are an essential feature of your windows. As you look out your windows every day, you are always seeing those blinds, whether they are open, closed, or somewhere between those two states. The good news is, if anything ever happens to those blinds, you do not need to worry about window blind repair. Measuring material, swapping out pieces, all of that. Don’t fret. We can handle fixing the blinds for you.
The Main Types of Shades and Blinds We Repair
Vertical blinds tend to be thicker. Their “vanes,” or shafts of material, usually extend from the curtain rod down to just above the ground. Each vane, or panel, usually can tilt in orientation, so as to be either parallel with the window (or sliding door), perpendicular with that window, or somewhere in-between. Much as vertical stripes are said to be “slimming,” in apparel, vertical blinds can give a window the appearance of being taller and narrower.
With Mini Blinds, the slats are thinner – generally either 0.5”, 1”, or 1.5”. These slats stack atop one another when the blinds are raised. When you lower the Mini Blinds, they can tilt up or down. There are tilt mechanisms which make it possible for these blinds to shift when lowered. Sometimes the repairs required for mini blinds are on the strings you pull to raise and lower the blinds. We can swap out those strings easily if they ever snap or become tangled.
Wood and Faux Wood Blinds
When blinds are made of wood, they are generally thicker and wider than Mini Blinds. Usually these blinds are between 2” and 3” thick. We can always replace individual slats, or whole set of slats, if the wood becomes discolored or mildewed.
These are flat shades, made of a continuous piece of material – most often vinyl, fabric, or a screen material. They roll up on a tube or a dowel, most commonly. If your roller shades are proving difficult to roll up, we can fix that for you.
Cellular and Honeycomb Shades
These shades are a cross between the roller shades and separated blinds. They are pleated. In other words, this is one continuous piece of material that folds onto itself to stack when raised.
