We had a terrific experience. Brad does all the in-home work himself, both the initial consultation as well as the installation. I really liked this part -- the same person in our home for the entire process. We were able to get an appointment very quickly, and Brad brought lots of samples for us to get ideas and to choose from. We discussed options (blinds vs. shutters), and Brad gave a thorough explanation regarding the pros and cons of each option. We were told it would take two weeks for the custom blinds to be made; they ended up being ready four days sooner than the original timeframe. Brad is very punctual, very professional, and easy to work with. His installation took less time than we expected, and the clean-up was perfect. He took the time to show us the features of the new blinds and made sure we were absolutely happy with the installation and the product before he left. These are custom blinds, and are not cheap -- but we also feel very confident that we bought a quality product that will last a very long time. We also know that if we ever have a problem, or want to get additional window treatments, Brad will provide top-quality service. I HIGHLY recommend Brad Lewis' Budget Blinds!

We had recently moved into a new home and needed wood blinds for the entrie upstairs bedrooms, master bathroom and vertical blinds for the downstairs slider door in the family room. The home we bought already had the downstairs windows funished with beautiful dark faux wood blinds, so naturally, we wanted the new ones to match. We went on Angie's list and selected the top contractor for windows...Brad Lewis with Budget Blinds. When I called Brad to get estimates, described to him what we wanted, then gave him my home address, he told me that he had installed the same blinds in the exact same home we had purchased! Talk about luck, we were able to take care of the order transaction over a phone call and a couple of emails. He already had measurements for all the windows, so he didn't need to go to the house. He placed the order, then called me about 10 days later, exactly one day before the closing on our new home to tell me that the blinds were in...meaning that they were ALREADY INSTALLED! This is the best experience that I have ever had with a contractor and I have Angie's List and Brad Lewis to thank for! Brad is excellent and has raised the bar on customer service and satisfaction!!!

I was in need of entire house window treatment. I had no idea what I wanted or even what I could afford. I saw a TV (not HGTV OR DIY) program showcasing beautiful window treatments. At the end of the show the credits showed Budget Blinds. I went to the Budget Blinds website and made an appointment. I received a call from Brad Lewis the owner, to schedule an in house visit to discuss what I was looking for. Brad was very helpful since I didn't know what to do, no ideas and, no help. Brad suggested plantation shutters, which I thought would be beautiful. I really liked the idea, but didn't think I could afford them, let alone for the entire house. We're talking 11 windows, I was sure I could not afford that. Brad crunched the numbers, I was very (I mean very) pleasantly surprised, they were much less than I ever thought possible. Brad placed the order that day. They were installed on schedule, the installer was prompt, courteous and installed the plantation shutters very quickly. They are breathtaking, look absolutely wonderful. I am so happy with my purchase from start to finish. Brad is gifted and intuitive. Thank you very much Brad Lewis!

Brad is an absolute winner. He is both professional and friendly. He makes you feel very comfortable right from the beginning of the process. He walked me through every step of making the choice of shutter type that would be best for my locations, gave me lots of options for frame styles. He helped figure out a way to install shutters in a very thin window next to my front door and also did some measuring and additional estimates for windows I thought I might want to do in the future. His estimate was spot on and the shutters arrived right on time. He removed all the current old window treatments for me and asked if I wanted to keep them and, since I did not, he offered to dispose of them for me. The final look of everything was perfect and I have never been so happy with anyone's service before. Brad is a very professional workman, but he is also a very kind and caring person. I feel that I would definitely use his services again, but that I have also made a friend. Thumbs up to you, Brad, and all the best in your future endeavors.

We found this provider and we're glad we did. Other providers would not take our order for a plantation shutter for only one window unless we paid the difference to meet their "minimum order amount." But, happily, Brad was willing to work with us. He's prompt, courteous, professional, and all those other Boy Scout Creed adjectives. Couldn't be happier with the results. Highly recommend this provider--who deserves the honor awarded him by Angie's List. Member Comments: Arrived on time for initial appointment; clearly explained all options and the reasons why some work better than others; was clear about delivery time; shutter arrived a few days before the expected date; Brad arrived early for installation (called ahead to get our okay); working cleanly and neatly; removed and carted away old window covering, which he said would be donated to Good Will if still usable; explained how to operate and care for shutter. Everything we expect--one of the best service experiences we've ever had.

Brad was great! He replaced 10 pleated blinds on very long windows. In addition, 3 of the older blinds that were in good condition were placed on windows that did not have treatments previously. One of the older blinds did have to be cut down, but Brad did so without complaint. The blinds were back-ordered, but Brad went to bat for me and managed to get them in a timely manner. They arrived with cords that were too short, and he came out an additional time to replace them. Brad is very personable, professional and quick. I will definitely hire him again if I need window treatments!
