Find all the information about our free blinds, shutters and awnings installation here, from what to expect to how best to prepare for it.

Once you've completed the survey and chosen your blinds, shutters, or awnings, the next step is the installation. Professional installation ensures that your new window solutions are securely fitted and function optimally. Here’s a detailed guide on what happens during the installation process and how to prepare for it.

The Installation Process

  1. Scheduling the Installation: After confirming your order, we will schedule a convenient time for the installation with you. It's important to choose a time when you can be present to address any last-minute questions or decisions.

  2. Arrival of the Installation Team: On the scheduled day, the installation team will arrive with all the necessary tools and materials. They will typically introduce themselves and review the plan with you before starting.

  3. Preparation and Protection: The installers will take measures to protect your home. This may include laying down drop cloths to protect floors and furniture, and using protective covers for any items near the installation area.

  4. Removal of Old Products (if necessary): If you have existing blinds, shutters, or awnings, the installation team will carefully remove them. They will also handle the disposal of these old products unless you prefer to keep them.

  5. Installation of New Products:

    • Blinds: The installers will mount the brackets, ensuring they are level and securely attached. Then, they will fit the blinds into the brackets and test their functionality, including raising, lowering, and tilting the slats.

    • Shutters: Shutter frames are first assembled and mounted. The panels are then attached to the frames, and adjustments are made to ensure they open, close, and tilt smoothly.

    • Awnings: For retractable awnings, the installation involves securing the mounting brackets to the wall or roof and attaching the awning unit. The installers will ensure the awning operates smoothly and that the angle of inclination is properly adjusted.

  6. Electrical Connections (if applicable): If your blinds, shutters, or awnings are motorised, the installation team will handle the necessary electrical connections. This may involve wiring to a power source or integrating the controls with your smart home system.

  7. Final Adjustments and Testing: Once installed, the team will make final adjustments to ensure everything operates smoothly. They will test the opening, closing, and any additional features like remote control operation or automatic sensors.

  8. Cleanup: The installers will clean up the work area, removing any debris, packaging materials, and protective coverings. They will leave your home as clean as it was when they arrived.

  9. Demonstration and Handover: Before leaving, the installation team will demonstrate how to use your new blinds, shutters, or awnings. They will explain any maintenance tips and ensure you are comfortable with the operation.

  10. Review and Sign-Off: Finally, you’ll be asked to review the installation and sign off on the completion. This is your opportunity to address any concerns or ask questions.

How to Prepare for Installation

  1. Clear the Installation Area: Ensure that the areas around your windows or awning installation sites are free of furniture, decor, and other obstructions. This allows the installers easy access to work efficiently.

  2. Remove Delicate Items: Take down any delicate or valuable items near the installation area to prevent accidental damage.

  3. Arrange for Pets and Children: Keep pets and small children away from the installation area for their safety and to allow the installers to work without interruptions.

  4. Confirm Power Availability: If your new treatments are motorized, ensure that the installation team has access to power outlets or the main power supply.

  5. Review the Plan: Have a copy of the installation plan and product specifications handy. This ensures you can verify that everything is being installed as per your preferences.

  6. Prepare Questions: Write down any questions or concerns you have about the installation process. The installation team will be able to address these before they begin.

Summary

The installation of blinds, shutters, and awnings is a meticulous process that, when done professionally, ensures your window solutions are both beautiful and functional. By understanding the installation steps and preparing adequately, you can facilitate a smooth and efficient process, resulting in a polished upgrade to your home’s interior and exterior.
