The business sells and installs custom window covering to primarily residential customers. There is commercial business from wineries, restaurants, offices, hotels, bed and breakfast locations, apartment and rental units, schools and libraries.
In-home or in-office consultation is provided showing product samples, explanation of the pros and cons of different types of window coverings, and taking measurements and providing the customer with an estimate. All products are custom ordered. Upon receipt of the ordered products, installation time is scheduled and the products are installed.
This is a home-based business. The owner rents two storage units to store supplies and to receive delivery of custom products.
With new construction continuing and rebuilding of homes in the area, in addition to new business expanding into the area, there is plenty of opportunity for growth. It would require more advertising and hiring of employees to take the business to the next level.
The primary competitors in the area are Carpet One, 3 day Blinds and Home Depot. Carpet One only sells Hunter Douglas products.
The owner is relocating out of state.
Will train for 4 weeks @ no cost. C61/D52 Contractor's Specialty license is required for installations. A standard business license and re-sell permit is also required to operate the business.
