Quick & Convenient In-Home Shade Repair Service
In your home, a broken shade may not be an emergency, but it certainly is an annoying inconvenience. You may put off repairing it because you don’t have the time or the tools to take it down, bring it in to a shop, and wait for weeks until it is ready. With Bloomin' Blinds, you don’t have to worry about any of that! We come to you and perform repairs on-site, then clean up after ourselves before we leave so you wouldn’t even know we had been there—other than your repaired shade, that is!
Shade repair can be a challenge, but if there’s a way to fix your shades instead of replacing them, our knowledgeable team at Bloomin' Blinds will find it. Thanks to plenty of hands-on experience with our blind, shade, and shutter business, we can help you find a quick, cost-effective solution.
Damaged Shades Need Professional Repair
Though repairing your broken or damaged shade may seem like something you could do yourself, consider the benefits of trusting an experienced pro. Our shade repair professionals have the knowledge, training, and tools to take care of repairs in a fraction of the time it would take the average homeowner.
We’re able to diagnose the issue and perform careful, quality repairs that last—or advise you on when you’re better off replacing your shades. Though many issues can be fixed, effectively extending the life of your shades, some damage either cannot be repaired or would be more expensive to fix than to replace. We’ll work with you to make sure you know all your options before we get started.
Some types of shade damage include:
We can replace damaged or worn out strings, repairing faulty “up and down” operations with your shades quickly so they work like new!
In a honeycomb shade, each cell is attached to the one above and below with glue. After awhile, the glue may fail. If this is the case, you will most likely have to get a new shade. Our selection of shades comes in a broad range of colors and textures so you’re almost certain to find the right match!
Repairing CC loops
If your shade uses the “pulley system” with a fixed-length cotton loop, you may eventually see this loop wear out. Additionally, the place where the string’s two ends meet could come unattached, making the shade useless. We can reinstall a new CC loop for you. Our selection includes a broad range of colors and lengths so you can find the best fit.
Replacing faulty cord locks
Cord locks ensure that you can adjust your shade to cover exactly the amount of window you want at any given time. If you want your shade rolled all the way up or down, or somewhere in the middle, the cord lock stops the shade where you want. Cord locks can eventually wear out, however, as they are usually just simple plastic devices. Our team can replace the cord locks so your shades are back in good working order.
What are some common types of shade damage?
Damaged or worn-out cords: We can restring or replace damaged cords, quickly repairing faulty up-and-down operation of your shades so they work like new. However, sometimes a fraying cord indicates a problem in the lift mechanisms. We can let you know if it’s repairable, or if you’re better off replacing the shade.
- Separated honeycombs: In a honeycomb shade, each cell is attached to the one above and below with adhesive. After some time, the adhesive may fail. If this is the case, you will most likely have to get a new shade. Our selection of shades comes in a broad range of colors and textures, so you’re almost certain to find the right match!
- Worn-out CC loops: If your shade uses the pulley system with a fixed-length cotton loop, you may eventually see this loop wear out. Additionally, the place where the string’s two ends meet could come unattached, making the shade useless. We can reinstall a new CC loop for you. We have a broad range of colors and lengths so you can find the best fit.
- Faulty cord locks: Cord locks ensure that you can adjust your shade to cover exactly the amount of window you want at any given time. The cord lock stops the shade at whatever height you choose. Cord locks can eventually wear out, however, as they are usually just simple plastic devices. Our team can replace the cord locks so your shades are back in good working order.
