Blinds Toronto Favorite Buildings and Solutions

This is my first post ever writing a blog so I thought it should be about my passion/work. Blinds, Shutters and Drapery. I hope to post about one interesting job every week or two, including the issues both stylistic and practical.

This week will be a 'simple' roller shade job at 5 Hanna. A beautiful building in the Liberty Village area of Toronto.

This building has some unique features including Loft Style units with double height windows. We did one of these units about 2 months ago and had a unique set of challenges. 

  1. Reinforced concrete ceilings.
  2. 24' ceiling height
  3. No sill to lay ladders against for the install.
We install in concrete and high ceilings all of the time but for this job we had to get out the 'big guns' specialty drills as well as our scaffolding (a-frame ladders didn't fit up the stairs). This is a job that definitely required our custom installation service!

As you can see below it was fun and it felt great to install this for the client. I hope they enjoy them for a long time! BTW I promise the client did not mind the wardrobe malfunction.
