We just built a new house, and one of the challenges was to find shades for the European tilt and turn windows. Additionally, our media room has tall ceilings and clerestory windows that we needed to block sunlight to watch TV without glare. The windows are so high up we needed a remote control.
We called multiple shade/blind companies in the Boston area, but to our surprise, many of them did not know much about these types of windows. The company that sold us the windows said: "Look no further; Fennstermann is your man!"
We were initially skeptical because he lives in Florida, and my husband and I are not handy people. We always thought this should be done entirely by a professional, but Ingo made the job easy.
Ingo's service was impeccable.
He guided us through the different types of available shades. There were many! He shipped us swatches we liked and explained how the shades would work. We questioned whether we could get the correct measurement, but Ingo had a video and paper instructions teaching us how to do it correctly. After receiving the shades, he patiently helped us put the first shade up via video call. Ingo was cheerful, funny, knowledgeable, and responsive to any issues and concerns we had. We had a small problem with the order, and Ingo was prompt and swift in rectifying the issue.
The shades look great
We got two different shades. For tilt and turn windows, we could only get the honeycomb type. They block the light just right, working great in our bedrooms. We are delighted. They look expensive, modern, and sleek.
In the media room, we wanted a total blackout. The windows are 10 feet from the floor, so we needed a remote control. The shades roll smoothly, and the remote control is sexy. It feels like midnight when the shades are down—perfect movie-viewing experience.
The price is right
We were surprised Fennstermann had similar and often better pricing than other companies from which we got estimates.
We were always dealing with Ingo, and he was always there for us, offering his expertise. He made a potentially anxiety-provoking experience pleasant and fulfilling.
If you are looking for blinds and shades, give Fenstermann LLC a call. I am sure you will be very happy.
