"I had high hopes for these. These shades look good but they have a MAJOR flaw. The strings that pull the shades up and down and the loops that actually work to roll the shade up get EASILY tangled and blown out of their place by mild wind and movement. It is NOT easy to continually fix this problem and I have even had to take them down to fix them. It has happened each time I try to roll them up- horrible problem to have to deal with every time. Too bad because they look good- I recommend finding another product unfortunately."

"I received 3 custom blinds for my covered deck to help shade the sun, which hits it especially during Fall and Winter. I work from home and try to operate from the desk whenever possible, and these blinds really help. I received the order much quicker than the estimate I was given on my order. The blinds appear to be of really good quality -- the basswood slats appear to be a good compromise between light weight and sturdy. They roll up and down very smoothly. The color was exactly what I expected from the photo on the website. I'm in Kansas, where the wind blows like crazy very often, and with the extra wind stability cords, the blinds stay put. They aren't quite stationary -- they get whipped around a bit (maybe 6 inches in & out), but the cords keep them pretty much in place and appear to protect them from damage. However, I wish there was a way to retract the cords when they aren't needed, because it's a bit unsightly to have 9 sets of cords hanging down when the 3 blinds are rolled up (2 stability cords and the pull cord on each). The installation was pretty easy, but I have two complaints about the setup. (1) The diagram showing how to connect the stability cords is practically unreadable -- it was very difficult to figure out. In fact, I was only able to do it by downloading instructions for similar blinds from a competitor's website. (2) The way the stability cords attach at the top results in some space contention at the bottom where I put some hardware for wrapping the pull cord -- it would be nice to have more eyelet hardware for the top so the right-side stability cord can be mounted away from the pull cord. Finally, it would also be nice to have a choice of right-side or left-side pull cords when ordering. Overall, I’m very satisfied!"

"On August 8 I created an account on your web site and was ready to order online, but before I did, I thought it best to speak to a human being and am glad I did. I spoke with a very nice lady who answered some questions and told me about a shipping expense due to the blinds' size so that it was not a surprise later. And she told me that it would take about 20 business days to make them + shipping time. On the late evening of August 29, I, being an impatient sort, emailed Customer Service and asked for a confirmation and tracking number. On August 30, Heidi provided me with an invoice and estimated date of shipment of 9/7/11. I replied to Heidi thanking her for her prompt reply. Later that morning, Julie responded with, "Thank you so much for allowing us to help you..."
That very afternoon the blinds arrived at my front door, even beating the 20 work day manufacturing time!
I shortened the blinds to fit 4 differently sized openings and finished hanging them on Labor Day with some help from my wife. They are beautiful, perfect, and just what I wanted. All four of them cost approximately what a local shop wanted for just one long blind!
I am thrilled with the idea of bringing down two lines to the bottom rail to keep the blinds from blowing into the lanai. The originals blew in all the time, and I tried, unsuccessfully, to hold them down with a chair back. Works perfectly! Kudos for this, and I wonder why I didn't think of it over the 15 year lives of the first ones!
They are perfect for keeping the blazing hot Florida sun off my lanai so we can eat on it in the evening."

"Ordered these for a screened porch. The sun comes in one side in the afternoon - these are perfect for blocking the sun. Priced similar shades locally for $1200.00; these were much less than half that plus $50 for our handyman to install (we don't get on ladders anymore). I'm VERY PLEASED! Called to ask questions, all were answered efficiently, ordering was easy (done over the phone with the person who answered my questions), was told they'd take 20 days, they arrived in 10. An exemplary company."

"Perfect! The blinds were very easy to install...it looks complicated but turns out easier than first thought. We chose the tan color and it matches our framing of the screened porch perfectly. Would highly recommend to a friend or purpose of interest."

"We needed an outdoor shade for the screened porch that was durable, attractive and reasonably priced. Living in a "villa" /condo neighborhood, we wanted privacy, shade and a tropical look.The exterior porch shade of basswood (green tone) arrived within 10 days, pefectly cut and packaged and delivered by UPS. When installing, remember the draw cord is on the "right", that helped figuring out how to hang it. It's beautifully made and we are very pleased with our purchase."

"My covered back deck faces west. The afternoon sun really made it impossible to sit out there. I installed two 66" blinds and it cooled it off right away.
Very good product and the whole experience with this company has been great!
Thanks
