Window treatments seem to be far more popular than tinting, any one do them? Do you ever get contact from people who do?

Just last week I sub contracted out hanging vertical blinds. A property manager called, asked if I could measure a job and install. Made a call and had a friend in that field go by and measure and fax me the dimensions. I faxed the info to the manager, got the job and called the installer back to schedule. All done over the phone. It would be nice to get calls like that every day! :hide

We have a few blind companies sell tint,,they sell it and we hang it, I give them a set square price and then they mark it up to whatever they want,,works great! :beer

forgive my Canadian Lingo..but when you say treatments ..are yourefering to solar blinds ?..if so, they're great..started the family business installing them..good for stores that like changing signs often in the windows ,but need the reflectivity of a strong blind in the day , and the normal vision by rolling itup at night..I also prefere tinting though.. :beer

Window treatments are for dressing up a window and in most cases do not effectively control solar energy, allowing it to penetrate the glass. Window film is for controlling solar energy at the glass surface.

It would be a good add-on since tinters deal with windows to begin with, have gained know-how in removing and replacing treatments during film installation and can easily sell a treatment in place of film when the client opts out on film.

And... can sell film for added protection to and for the window treatments.
