Based on my experience with this Company, both Richard the owner and Oscar who did the repairs were top notch. I highly recommend them. Very knowledgeable, personable and professional. I thought their prices were very fair too given what was involved.

It went great. I was able to get an appointment scheduled quickly. The workers showed up on time and were very efficient. They were able to detach the shade and take it out to their van to do the repair, which I appreciated due to COVID protocols. Reinstallation of the shade went smoothly. All in all I was very pleased and would definitely use this company again.

Terrific! Great service and pricing. The only recommendation I have is I found clips from cord material for several days.

Hello [Member Name Removed]! Thank you for your kind review! We should have done better though to make sure the little cord clippings were picked up, however. This will be part of our staff meeting tomorrow I assure you. Thanks again! Don't forget you have an unconditional 3 month warranty with us, so give us a call should you have any issues. All the best, and Happy Holidays!!!

"Oscar," the person who is mentioned in this company's positive reviews, was ill so the owner himself, Richard, came to do the job. He could not complete the job because he needed to order a part. I paid him $124 with the understanding that he would come back and finish the job. He never did, and he failed to return any of the voice-mail messages that I left over a period of weeks. Not recommended...

This job was to work on two wood blinds that needed to be restrung as well as one having a bad tilter mechanism. We carry many tilters on our vehicle, but this one was very unique and was of an antique design. The blinds have no manufacturers mark on them, so though we tried to find the part we were unable to. The part, and any additional service were not included in the $124 price for the repairs...

I called The Blind Spot in the morning about a broken cord in our blind. Richard was able to send Oscar to fix the problem three hours later. Oscar diagnosed the problems involving a bracket that had completely disengaged from the wall and a broken cord. He fixed the problems and replaced the plastic cord with a sturdier stainless steel cord and replaced the cord in the adjacent blind to match. Co...

Thank you, [Member Name Removed], for that wonderful review! That really makes doing the job worth while. We cannot always be that quick to respond, but we do try. Yes, Oscar is great, and those stainless steel ball chains he used to repair your shades should last for you. Remember you also have a three month unconditional warranty on any repair work we do, so if any issue does arise, just give us...

Excellent work. Richard really saved me. I had my windows replaced and to do so, the shutters had to be removed. I had called 6 shutter places and all said they would not or could not remove the shutters and re-install them. Thank goodness I called The Blind Spot. Richard said he could do it. In fact the frames had to be cut down to fit the new windows but they did the work beautifully. And it sav...

Thank you, [Member Name Removed]! It was an interesting project, but there was no need to discard those shutters. Trimming down the frames was all that was needed, though it sounds easier than it was. It's not as profitable to repair them then to sell you new ones. That is the main reason the 6 other companies don't want to do this work. But for me that is short sighted. Your shutters were fine, i...

Fantastic! Richard was very professional on the phone when I called to schedule the appointment. He was very nice and worked with our limited availability to schedule an appointment for the very next morning. Richard and Oscar arrived on time, promptly figured out the problem with the cord, and fixed it very quickly. They even explained to us what had happened and how to prevent it from happening ...
