OUR PROCESS

Estimate

At Shutters and Shade, we always start with a complimentary consultation. During our consultation, we'll get a better idea of your needs and preferences so we can determine what product will work best for your application. There are three different products that have many similarities and differences. It's our duty to you to provide you with the best product for your application.

Our three products include:
● Awnings
● Screens
● Shutters

Next, we measure potential unit(s) length and height. We take detailed notes as to how the unit should be installed to save time on installation day. Some things we note are where to run the power from, additional materials needed, and any custom modifications required. After measurements are taken we look at the variety of fabric and colour samples to best visualize how our product will look on your home/building. Rest assured, you dwon't need to make a definite decision right away, you'll have plenty of time to consider your options.

For straightforward installs we run the calculations for the project and present the figures at the time of the estimate. For larger jobs we will send the estimate via email. In order to commence your order and install, we require a 50% deposit when you decide to go-ahead. At that point we will schedule an installation date and colours will need to be decided on.

Our products are manufactured in Salmon Arm, BC which allows us to schedule an install date approximately 2 weeks from the date of order. This is perfect for those who are looking for a quick turn around time.

Installation Day

Two or three of our Shutters and Shade team will arrive with your custom ordered units, any required additional materials, correct tools, specified fasteners, and know-how to install your products. We take pride in the fact that a good attitude is always present on our job sites and around your home or business.

Step 1 is to make a plan which includes:
● Arranging and organizing the units in order of install
● Unpacking the units
● Getting the right tools for the job ready to use
● Selecting the correct fasteners
● And getting to work!

Our Shutters and Shade team always operates a clean, efficient work site with all garbage and recycling picked up and removed from your property, and disposed of in a sustainable manner. We care about the environment; recycling is another way we assist the preservation of our planet.

It would be appreciated if you, the client, is on-site, especially at the beginning and end of the install. Our installers will conduct a demonstration of the unit operation before leaving and answer any other questions you may have. Upon completion, we require the final payment be made. If you choose to pay via credit card there’s a 3% processing fee, which is not included in your original estimate.
