When a shade, shutter or blind ends up functioning improperly, or not at all, it’s usually due to having been placed in an opening for which it is not suited. Avoiding such problems involves taking note of so much more than just width and height at time of measure.
As an example, but by no means the only one, an opening’s depth has a lot to tell about whether or not the desired product will enjoy unobstructed movement when installed. Will it come into contact with a protruding frame component (mullion, lifting rail, crank, etc.), preventing full functionality? The time to switch to a product that works within existing parameters is before a desired selection is ordered and custom made.
The reality is, a given product is not necessarily suited for just any opening. All openings have their own unique set of features and tolerances.
Be assured – we’re trained to make you aware of anything that may have an impact on your selection. Even if it means recommending a less profitable item, but one that will not suffer from poor functionality.
