There's no question that installing custom-made window treatments improves a home in many respects: they not only look better, but by fitting your window openings precisely they provide superior insulation that can produce dramatic energy savings. The ability to add decorative and functional enhancements to most custom treatments is another big plus that lets you fine-tune the product to your home's exact needs. And if it ever comes time to sell, many custom styles like wood blinds and wood shutters can actually increase the market value of your home.
In fact, a common consumer stumbling block encountered by Smith+Noble, the Nation's leading retailer of custom window treatments through catalogs and online, is many homeowners' hesitancy to take the precise measurements needed for custom-built products, plus lack of time and/or expertise to properly install them.
To address this need Smith+Noble, after 20 years of catering primarily to a "Do It Yourself" (DIY) audience, today also makes comprehensive Measuring+Installation services available for every one of its dozens of window treatment styles to homeowners nationwide. This includes not only products that many competitors cover, such as woven wood shades, roller shades, solar shades and honeycombs, but also wood blinds and shutters plus fabric styles including shades, valances, panels, drapery and complicated layered treatments.
Measuring and installation services for Smith+Noble are provided by United Independent, Inc. United Independent (UI) has quickly grown from its launch in Southern California a few years ago to a nationwide service provider through a network of over 400 independent, local professional contractors. Though an independent company, UI service technicians receive specialized training in all Smith+Noble products. This ensures that every project will go smoothly, and allows them to guarantee perfect fit for all treatments.
Both Smith+Noble and its customers have been pleased with the service. As Smith+Noble President John Hoven puts it, "The customer feedback on the measuring and installation program has been overwhelmingly positive. Our customers have repeatedly complimented the professionalism and quality work that UI contractors consistently deliver."
Prices for these value-added services have also proved popular with consumers coast to coast: professional measuring of all windows in a home starts at just $59.95, with installation priced from just $17 per window. Installation of popular Wood Shutters is available from $5 per square foot.
