The Best Window Treatments in Palm Beach County FL Are From Those Proven Safe To Hire

The state of Florida doesn't require any state license for installers of window treatments in Palm Beach County FL and so there's no state standard for competency and reliability. Likewise, there is no legal requirement that companies for window coverings in Palm Beach County have workers' comp insurance or liability insurance and both are critical to you. If an employee of theirs were injured on your property and the window treatment company doesn't have workers' comp, you will be held liable. Similarly if any accidental damage occurs to your property and the countertop installer has no liability insurance, you will be on the hook for it.

So there's no guarantee that any particular company for window treatments in Palm Beach County FL is even competent, is doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all window treatment companies in Palm Beach County FL who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified worker's comp and liability insurance, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.

 

Questions To Ask of Contractors for Window Coverings in Palm Beach County FL

When choosing which company to hire for window coverings in Palm Beach County, ask the right questions about their experience, methods and material options, design capabilities, and guarantees or warranties.

  
• How long has the window covering installer been in Palm Beach County?

• How many jobs have they performed?

• Can the window treatment company give you names and numbers of previous customers you can call as references? (All companies for window treatments in Palm Beach County bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had customer references called  by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do they provide you a choice among different options such as new shutters versus new shades versus new blinds or only one or some of these?

• Do they have designers on staff and what are their design qualifications or education?

• Can they do computer design visuals of your specific room or building to allow you to see beforehand different options in products and colors to help aid your decision process?

• Do they provide you a choice among different manufacturers? If they use or represent only one manufacturer, what are the benefits?

• How long do they guarantee their work for and is it in writing?

• Aside from their own guarantees, what are the manufacturer warranties?

• Can the window treatment company prove that all workers sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All companies for window coverings in Palm Beach County bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Do they have active workers' compensation and general liability insurance for your protection? (All contractors for window treatments in Palm Beach County bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Who besides the licensed window covering contractor will actually be performing the work? Are they permanent employees, what are their personal qualifications and experience and how long have they worked for the contractor?

• Will the company be performing all the work themselves or will they be subcontracting any part of it out, and if so, to whom? This is particularly relevant in the case of companies that do window treatment sales only, with no contractors license who then subcontract out for the installation.

• If the window treatment is for the interior, how will your access and use of the home be affected and for how long?

When you've chosen the best window treatment company in Palm Beach County for your specific needs and priorities, make sure they are licensed by your county or city to perform as installers, if such is required in your particular area, since the state of Florida has no state license requirement. (All companies for window treatments in Palm Beach County FL bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their county or city license verified (if legally required in their area) by our research staff so you don't have to.)

Options For Window Treatments in Palm Beach County FL including Films, Interior Shutters, Exterior Shutters, Blinds, & Shades

Companies for window treatments in Palm Beach County FL may provide only some or all of following options in window coverings.

WINDOW FILMS
Window film is applied directly onto the window glass for the purpose of protection from UV light damage, tinting, temperature regulation, to strengthen the glass for security reasons, or for pure decorative reasons. Window films in Palm Beach County are available in three grades: residential, commercial, and security grade.   Window film for temperature regulation is designed to reduce energy bills by absorbing solar heat in summer and providing insulation in winter.  Security grade window film holds shattered glass in place to reduce damages from high winds and other destructive weather, explosions, and smash and grab thefts. Window film can also be used to improve views by reducing glare and to add privacy.  Decorative window films come in wide variety of designs, colors, patterns and graphics.

 

WINDOW BLINDS

Vertical blinds (track blinds) - are slats that hang vertically and are commonly used for large windows or sliding glass doors. Slats for vertical blinds come in many colors, styles, and materials such as stiffened plastic, aluminum, faux wood, cellular screen, and fabric.

Roller blinds - Roller blinds are a large single sheet, often made of plastic, come in a variety of colors, and are commonly found in offices as well as homes.  They get their name because they scroll down from the top of the window and motorized roller blinds are common.

Venetian blinds -Horizontal slats, attached one above the other that can be rotated to allow in light or raised out of the way entirely.  Because venetian blinds offer privacy when completely closed, they are often used in bathrooms.  Venetian blinds come in many colors and different materials such as plastic, wood blinds, and metal.

Routed vs Routless Blinds  - Refers to horizontal blinds such as venetian blinds and whether or not the slats have small holes for the two vertical guide strings at each end to pass through. The decision to go with routless blinds (no holes) may be an aesthetic issue, or one of security from close-up prying eyes.

Roman blinds - Like roller blinds, roman blinds also hang from the top of the window but raise into pleated folds and are usually made of soft fabric or some other flexible material like bamboo or reed mats.

Honeycomb Blinds (cellular blinds) - These get their name from their honeycomb appearance when looked at edge on. The cells created between the two attached layers of fabric trap air for energy efficiency and sound reduction.


WINDOW SHADES

Roman shades - Another name for Roman blinds (see above).

Roller shades (roll-up shades)  - Shades with a rolling mechanism that fits the upper part of the window. The shade is usually made of fabric or vinyl which rolls out from behind the rolling mechanism, except with reverse rolling shades which roll out from the front for a more streamlined look. The main types of roller shades are blackout, semi-opaque, sheer, and semi-sheer according to how much light they let through the material.

Bottom-Up Shades - Similar to traditional roller shades they pull up from the bottom rather than from the top down.  They are often chosen where privacy is a concern because when pulled half-way up, they prevent seeing into the home through the bottom half of the window while still letting light in from the top half.

Pleated shades - Fabric or other flexible material that hangs from the top of the window and pleats up accordion style when raised.

Woven wood shades - Shades of bamboo, woven grasses, jutes, reeds, rattan and other plant materials.

Solar shades - Shades used not for privacy as they can usually still be seen through, but to filter incoming light so as to prevent UV light damage to interiors, cool them, or to diffuse bright sunlight or cut glare on TVs and computer screens. Solar shades are given an openness rating expressed as a percentage. The lower the percentage, the more coverage they provide.

Window quilts - Insulated window shades in the form of quilted fabric hanging from the top of the window, commonly associated with rustic settings where insulation from cold weather is a priority, but which now also come in upscale, sophisticated styles and colors.

 

WINDOW SHUTTERS
Shutters are solid window coverings, most commonly of wood, metal, vinyl or composite material, whether interior or exterior, usually hinged or on tracks.

Louver Shutters - Shutters with horizontal slats. These slats may be non-moving and permanently in the closed position, or may be moving, performing a function similar to horizontal or venetian blinds.

Panel Shutters - Shutters without horizontal louvers but rather flat panels either raised or recessed.

Batten Shutters - Panel shutters where the panels are composed of vertical batten (fixed slats) or made to look as if they are composed of vertical slats.

Composite Shutters - A manufactured alternative to wood where durability, moisture-resistance, and minimal maintenance are priorities.

Hurricane Shutters - Shutters designed to protect windows from high winds. They may be made of wood or synthetic material, but are often metal where protection is a bigger priority than appearance.

Plantation Shutters - Interior shutters with movable, horizontal slats or louvers that work similar to venetian blinds except that the slats are fixed and can be tilted but not raised. Wider panels allow the most light into the room and can create a cleaner, less busy look.   Plantation shutters may be either full-height or half-height shutters.

Half-Height Shutters (café style shutters) - Shutters that cover only the lower section of the window, leaving the top half of the window exposed. Often used where privacy is a priority, similar in intent to bottoms-up shades.

Double Hung Shutters (tier on tier shutters) - Shutters that cover the entire surface of the window but that are divided into lower and upper portions giving the same kind of privacy as half-height shutters but providing the option of closing off the top portion of the window when desired.

WINDOW HEADERS
Window headers, crossheads, and sunbursts add style and flair to a window's exterior. They may be used alone or in a style and color to complement and accompany exterior window shutters. They come in a variety of colors and materials including wood, vinyl, aluminum and more.
