At LeBelle Spa, we recently had shades installed from Shades in Place. Roger assisted us in finding the perfect shades for our reception area. He delivered outstanding customer service, was able to answer all of our questions, and did a beautiful job. We have even had some of our customers comment on the elegant new shades! We highly recommend Roger and Shades in Place to any business or home!
I have worked with Roger several times during my interior design career and believe me no one does shades better than Roger. One consistent thing I hear form the husbands in my deign client couples is, " Call Roger... I want those motorized shades he installs. I love them!!" Tell me... when is the last time you heard a husband say he loved window treatments??!! The ease with which they work, the smoothness of their operation... it truly is remarkable. Roger's service is beyond compare and his communication with his customers could not be better. As a designer I could not ask for more! Roger ordered and hung the shades, hung our draperies and hung our art. He is a master of all.
I was so fortunate to find Roger and Shades in Place. I was looking to have some artwork and drapes (including hardware) hung. Roger sent me a quote immediately and within 24 hours we had settled on an appointment time. Luckily for me Roger was able to squeeze my install in a couple of days later to accommodate my request. He was responsive, prompt and a pleasure to work with. He kept things tidy and he was conscientious with his work. I will absolutely use Roger again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
Really beautiful blinds. We chose a fabric/cloth material of a thicker 3 inch spacing. It looks really wonderful, when open it allows in ample light. When closed it is not blackout, but blocks just the right amount of light. The technology is fantastic allowing control with a remote, and wifi/bluetooth connectivity so that you can control with an app on your phone. You can store favorite settings with the blinds a certain height, or a certain degree of tilt on the shade so it moves to that location with one click. You can also set programs daily or weekly as a sort of "alarm" if you want to wake up to the light, or have it drawn shut when you're going to bed. Roger M. was wonderful to deal with. He is professional and highly skilled. On time, and quick with installation. He also goes over in detail every aspect of the system and gets it set up and ready to use before leaving. Highly recommend based on quality of product AND service by Roger.
Roger is a true professional. The blinds and shutters he installed in our home look fantastic! He is meticulous in his work. He communicated regularly and delivered on schedule. It was a pleasure working with him and we recommend him 100%.
Shades In Place was recommended to me by a designer I am working with. The entire experience exceeded my expectations. Roger was very knowledgeable, kind and patient in dealing with my many questions throughout the ordering process. The install was effortless as Roger arrived early, was neat and took great care during the installation process. The shutters are exquisite. They match my custom paint trim beautifully and fit perfectly into each window. The wooden insert Roger had to make in between the windows is an amazing piece of craftsmanship. Very happy with the outcome and would absolutely recommend to all!
Roger of Shades IN Place was recommended to me by a designer that I am working with. After taking our order, Roger followed up and promptly answered all mine and my husband's questions. He exceeded my expectations during the install as he was extremely respectful of our home during installation. It has been a few weeks since the install and we really love the shutters and automated blinds he installed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shades IN Place to my friends and family.
Best experience I've had!!!! Roger is a professional who knows his stuff. He helped in the ordering and was oh so patient! The shades/blinds came early and were installed quickly and expertly.
When is time to do the remainder of the windows, he is the only one I will call!!!!!!!!
Shades IN Place exceeded my expectations! Roger found the latest blinds for my commercial business store front and matched the colors perfectly to the building building decor. Then surprised me with a motorized feature at no extra charge!
Roger installed all my blinds for me 10 years ago. They still look great. My cleaning lady accidentally knocked off one of the shades and I called Roger to come back to fix it. He called me right back and came within a few days and reinstalled it at no charge. I will always use him for window treatments and highly recommend his work.
