DIY or professional - When to hire a professional for your project


When it comes to installing window treatments such as blinds or shades, many homeowners may be tempted to do it themselves to save time and money. However, hiring a professional window installer can actually be a very wise investment in the long run. Here are three important reasons why:

#1 Proper Installation

A professional window installer has the knowledge and experience to properly measure and install your window treatments. This ensures your blinds or shades fit perfectly and function correctly, providing maximum light control, privacy and insulation. Improper installation can result in gaps where light and heat can seep in, or even cause damage to the window frame or surrounding walls.

As all Luxaflex® window coverings are custom-made for your windows, it’s very important that you choose an installer you can count on. 

#2 Product Knowledge

A window covering professional should be familiar with the full range of products, and able to provide guidance on which window coverings will work best for your home. They can also offer advice on the most ideal materials, styles, and colours to match your decor and functional needs. With a wide range of Luxaflex® products available, including motorised options, a professional can help you choose the best fit for your home.

#3 Time and Cost Savings

While it may seem like a cost-saving measure to install blinds yourself, it can actually end up being more expensive if mistakes are made. A professional installer has the right tools and equipment to get the job done quickly and efficiently, without causing any damage to your home. This saves you time and potential repair costs down the line.

A professional installer can allow you to enjoy your new window coverings without any delays or headaches.

#4 Warranties and guarantees

All Luxaflex products come with a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty*. The 5 year warranty provides customers with peace of mind knowing that their Luxaflex® products are covered against any defects or issues that may arise within the first five years of purchase. This warranty is a testament to the quality and durability of Luxaflex® products, and reinforces the company's commitment to providing exceptional customer service.
