Repair bench Louvers Lane

We have repaired thousands of blinds and will gladly tell you if your blind or shade is fixable or wroth fixing. While restringing older blinds is our most common repair we have the tools and equipment to handle a wide variety of repairs for all types of custom blinds and shades. We have parts from the last century in our back room and a wall full of common parts readily available. For local clients, we also make house calls to restring blinds right in your home. Whether your blinds are Hunter Douglas, Graber, Bali, Eddie Z's, Budget Blinds or another brand we can probably help you out. In a rush? With an appointment repairs can be made while you wait (or are in the area running errands), otherwise they are usually completed within a week days unless we have to order 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

When we "restring" a blind we aren't just pulling new cords. We inspect the blind, components and cord routes and make adjustments, add new parts and pull new cords and install a new cord lock when appropriate. Wearning out the cord after thousands of cycles of operation in a 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.
