with Century 21 Advantage
Every month I write a blog about local companies that are involved in the housing industry in some fashion. I will be writing about companies that can help you the home owners in your day to day lives. Last month was a company called Ground Werx Coatings read their story here
This month I am doing a story on Budget Blinds. Heather and Craig are another great example of entrepreneurs. In addition to Budget Blinds they also own Go Tire. They are in the process of applying to Dragons Den so they can franchise that venture.
Budget Blinds can offer you whatever you need in window coverings. They will come into your home for a free consultation and show you what is possible in your price range. As Heather tells me every job is different and costs are based on your affordability, amount of windows needing covered and your choice of covering.
Heather can offer you many different types of coverings including drapery, exterior shades, rollers, romans, pleated, shutters, and both horizontal and vertical blinds. One aspect I am interested in is the window film. I recently sold a home with a south facing bay window that had the window film. My clients told me that their livingroom stayed cooler last summer after they had it installed and they lost very little natural light out of the room.
From a Realtor point of view if you are thinking of selling your home new window covering will make your home more attractive. Old discolored blinds that may or may not work make the room look drab where new blinds can make a room more vibrant. Window coverings are usually an after thought when buying a home but done properly can give a home a great feel. Most new home construction does not include window coverings.
Thats where Heather and Craig come in. Each window covering is custom made to your taste.
Heather and Craig have been in business since 2006 as a Budget Blind rep and should be very proud that they have been in Budget Blinds top 20 for sales since then. One of those years they were #1. Budget Blinds now have over 80 stores across Canada.
Give them a call, I am sure they will help in any way they can.
