Window Coverings for Condominiums

Solar Shades or Vertical Blinds are the Right Choice for your Condo!

Shade Works was asked the other day, by a customer in Vancouver, British Columbia, for our input on the types of window coverings she should be considering for her new condominium. More recently, the newly built condos have floor to ceiling windows, which makes window coverings a must for both privacy and UV ray protection. Here are some tips and pointers that Shade Works has put together to get you started and help you throughout the process.

Things to Consider Before Purchase

1. Before you install your blinds or shades, make sure to check building strata rules as most buildings require the side of the window covering facing outward to be white. 2. Check what kind of surface you are drilling into. Most condo owners would be drilling into concrete, and this poses a challenge to anyone without the proper tools. A hammer drill is recommended.
