Repair bench Louvers Lane

While giving life to older blinds with a complete restringing is porbably our most common repair. We have the tools and parts to do a variety of repairs on all types of custom blinds and shades. Over the past decade we've accumulated a "few" parts and can promptly repair most shades here at our shop. For local clients, we also make house calls to restring blinds right in your home. As our shop hours vary during the week, it is always best to call first, before coming by to drop off a blind. Repairs and service for all Hunter Douglas blinds can be arranged if we can't do it in our shop. With an appointment repairs can be made while you wait (or are in the area running errands), otherwise they are completed within a few days - if we don't have to wait for parts etc.

We offer a 1 year warranty on our work for restringing and many other repairs (if you aren't coming back because the kids or the cat abused the same blind again).

Restringing blinds

  "Restringing" a blind or shade to us is defined as the process of carefully inspecting the product and not only pulling new cords, but also replacing or adjusting parts so that the new cord isn't just wearing out faster across old worn and grooved parts. Wearning out the cord after thousands of cycles on the blind is normal, how long it takes depends on many variables we can't predict. When a shade is restung correctly however, unless abused by a human or nibbled by a feline houseguest it should provide many more years of reliable service.

 

Cord locks

 Some cord locks (like this one) are obsolete and can be replaced with a newer model, for other repairs parts may need to be ordered.

We also have common brackets for many blinds and shades. Below is pictured the progression of Silhouette brackets over the years. If you have the part or can bring in a small blind to make it easier to identify a workable part great. If not, we may still be able to help, though a digital picture of the part or information about the type of blind, etc., is the next best thing.
