Why Hire a Professional vs Doing It Yourself

When installing new window treatments in your home, it can be tempting to try and save money by doing it yourself. However, hiring a professional is actually safer and can save you money in the long run. At Benchmark Shutters & Shades, we offer a beautiful selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments, and our courteous, professional installers can help you get the job done right the first time. Contact us today to learn more about the amazing window fashions we offer and why you should hire a professional to install them.

Custom window treatments from Hunter Douglas can do a lot for your home, but only if they are installed properly. Light control, privacy, and energy-efficiency are just a few of the functional benefits you can expect from your custom blinds and shades. Many of our window treatments are even available with PowerView® Motorization to make your home more convenient.

In addition to functional advantages, there are also many style options when you choose to go with custom window treatments. The material, color, and even textures are all things you can choose, so you can create exactly the look you want in your home. However, if installed wrong, your window treatments can look askew or out of place in your home.

Custom window coverings can even be designed for specialty-shaped windows, like arches or angles. These types of windows are especially hard to measure if you haven’t been professionally trained, so it’s best to let our experts handle it for you. We will come to your home on your schedule, and our installers are prompt, so you won’t have to wait around all day for them.

Professional window treatment installation is important for several reasons. First, having your window treatments installed incorrectly can become dangerous. If your window treatments aren’t hung properly, they could fall and either break or hurt someone in the process. Professional installers can account for many different things that your window fashions might go through and will install them in a safe manner.

Additionally, improperly hung or measured window coverings can lose their functionality or look out of place in your home. When window treatments aren’t measured correctly, they may not fit in your windows, and you’ll have to start all over. If they do happen to fit, they still may be measured or installed in such a way that keeps them from opening and closing properly or being easily adjusted.
