Window Treatment Answers…and More Answers! What Was the Question?

Each month my super marketing gurus send me a report from Google that details what people that visited this page were actually searching for. Month after month the results are almost identical: protecting your home/furnishings from UV damage and can blinds be cut down after new windows are installed. These two items vie for first and second place almost every month so let’s revisit the subjects again.

There are previous posts below you might want to read but let’s talk about these top two questions that seem to be on everyone’s mind: [Read more…]

Window Covering Safety!

October is Window Covering Safety Month! This is a subject that most of us don’t think about until one of those sad stories pops up on the news: TWO YEAR OLD DEAD AFTER GETTING CAUGHT IN CORDS!

I shudder each and every time I hear one of these stores. While window fashions have become much safer in the last 10 years there are still 6 or so children injured or killed each year because a few simple steps were ignored…and it’s not just children! Our four-legged friends can be at risk as well! [Read more…]

The Organized Kid!

Life Without Clutter and Power Struggles!

I’m going to start this article off by asking you to close your eyes.  Yes, you heard me correctly.  I want you to close your eyes and remember back to your kindergarten classroom.  Go!

What did you remember?  It was a colorful space wasn’t it.  There were all kinds of signs and pictures all over the walls.  Did you remember the smell of paste and crayons?  Did you see the cubbies on the walls?  There were toys, and books and sometimes even animals and there were 20-30 kids!

But you’ll also remember that EVERYTHING HAD A PLACE AND EVERYTHING WAS IN IT’S PLACE!  There wasn’t clutter all over the place.  Desks were neatly arranged and each child knew where his/her belongings went when they walked in the door. [Read more…]

Your New Home – Blinds & Shades Are More than just Privacy!

Replacing Your Windows? Don’t be “Blind” Sided!

Replacement windows are one of the most popular and energy saving home improvement projects.  Every year thousands of Central Ohio residents replace old, drafty windows with new energy efficient windows.  The Federal Energy Tax Credit has kept replacement window companies busy for the last several years.  Recently though, we have received a rash of calls from consumers in Columbus inquiring about having their blinds or shades cut down to fit their new windows.  In a few cases they had just recently replaced their blinds and when the new windows were installed they wouldn’t fit.

Professional Image/Professional Job

We’ve all seen it; you’re on the freeway and some yahoo’s driving a pick-up truck with ladders hanging off the top, cardboard flappin’ in the wind…and of course he’s yakking on the phone. Did I mention the bumper with duct tape?  Most of these vehicles are unidentified when it comes to the business they are engaged in. That’s probably a good thing since the image portrayed is more that of a business you’d like to avoid than one you’d call for a quote. This probably seems like a strange blog post but it was suggested by one of our sales people after an experience he had recently.
