FAQs

Because we sell custom window coverings, the cost varies greatly based on material selections, product options, window sizes, etc. The best way to get accurate pricing would be to request a Free In Home Consultation with one of our Window Covering Designers. At that appointment, we will provide you an accurate quote for your project. Our prices will be competitive considering the services we provide.
We have a term called the 1% to 3% rule. New window coverings generally cost somewhere in the range of 1% to 3% of the value of your home. For example, if you live in a $500,000 home, a basic blind package may start around $5,000 to $6,000 and a more high-end option like motorized shades or shutters may start at $15,000. This rule is a pretty good baseline for most of the Southwest.
Yes, we know that every successful window covering project requires expert installation. We are a full service company and provide your installation by trained professional Installers to guarantee your job is completed correctly. Each Installer is background checked and certified to perform the installation. We are licensed, bonded and insured and carry contractors licenses in the states that it is applicable.
Our average delivery from order to installation is 4-8 weeks depending on the scope of your project. We provide weekly updates as well while you wait for your custom window coverings to be manufactured.
Southwest Blinds and Shutters was founded in 2002, by James Hutchings, who still owns and operates the company today. In these 20 years in business, we have serviced thousands of happy customers in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah.
Our Window Covering Designers will bring great visual tools and samples to help you make those hard decisions with the right product, color, and function. We have online galleries, product visualizers, and explainer videos available. We also have two showrooms in Arizona and weekly showcase events in California, Nevada, and Utah.
We offer varying promotions throughout the year including rebates, discounts, upgrades, etc., on select products. Ask your Window Covering Designer for details.
The most popular products currently in Arizona, California, Nevada, and Utah are motorized roller shades, cordless cellular shades, plantation shutters, and custom drapery. Our customers are looking for fashionable design, ease of function, and energy efficiency.
Yes, we offer repairs if you purchased the window coverings from our company. Every project we complete is backed by a service guarantee and a manufacturer's warranty. We do not currently offer repair services for window coverings that were purchased from another company.
Yes, we offer replacement parts if you purchased the window coverings from our company. We do not currently sell replacement parts for window coverings that were purchased from another company.
Yes, we prefer and insist that we come to your home. It's important for you as the consumer to see the color options and materials in your living space. It's also extremely important for our team to visit your home to help you create a beautiful and functional window covering design.Our team of experts will work with you to identify the best solutions, especially when we see how you live and your current design aesthetic.
Is it cheaper if I do? We are a full service window covering company and install 100% of the window coverings that we sell. Our Installers are trained to safely and professionally install your window coverings to ensure a proper fit for a lifetime. In addition, the manufacturer's product warranty only covers products that were installed by a certified Installer. Fun Fact - a new Installer will be in training for 6-12 months before they are allowed to perform their first solo installation.
Our window treatments are all custom fit to your unique window sizes. Window openings are never stock sizes and bulk stock blinds will never look or fit like a custom window covering. Bulk Stock blinds/shades are often made from cheap components and materials that reduce the performance and longevity of the product.
This is a common and valid concern. Oftentimes, customers rely on online companies, box stores, or inexperienced companies and do not receive the expert in home guidance they need to make the right window covering choice. Because they aren't guided during their initial design, customers have to rely on a replacement. At Southwest Blinds & Shutters, have completed tens of thousands of projects and we have used that experience to create a design experience with checks and balances to ensure your project success. Our expert Window Covering Designers will guide you every step of the way using our education based design system. Once you move forward with your purchase, your design is rechecked by a Certified Installer to ensure the proper fit and function, and then rechecked again by our Ordering Team. All of this happens before your custom window covering order is placed.
Warranties can be very misrepresented in the window covering industry. The manufacturer generally only covers the actual product for a limited amount of time and any service work or shipping needed for repairs is not covered. At Southwest Blinds & Shutters, we've partnered with the best manufacturers in the industry to offer a 3 part warranty that includes a manufacturer lifetime warranty, our exclusive "Worry Free Service Guarantee", and our "Oops Warranty". Our warranty program covers the way you live and is 5X longer than the industry average. We recommend you review the company's warranties in detail before any purchase.
Most hard window treatments like wood blinds and shutters are best cleaned with a slightly damp cloth followed by a dry cloth. Fabric treatments can be spot cleaned with water, vacuumed with a light attachment, or professionally cleaned.
Our Installers in Arizona and Nevada are full time employees of our company and we do not subcontract any installations in those areas. In California and Utah, we work with a select group of independent Installers who have been our long time partners and follow our same standards for workmanship and service.
Currently, 98% of our products are manufactured in North America which allows us to maintain consistent lead times and avoid the extended lead times many companies have dealt with during the pandemic.
We believe that our greatest value to you is our service. Our expert team of Window Covering Designers and Installers have worked on tens of thousands of projects and will use their expertise to help you build the best design for your home. There are a number of factors to consider

Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.

They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.

This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!

The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.

James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
