One of the pull strings on our 30+ year old bedroom shades was malfunctioning. After reading several reviews for blind repairs, I called Made in the Shade on a Saturday, thinking I would leave a message. To my surprise, John answered the phone, a rarity these days! We scheduled an appt for Evan, VP of the company, to come out when my husband was home. Evan took the shade with him and returned it within 2 days. He fixed the pull cord, but unfortunately, it was too short for me to reach. Evan kindly scheduled another visit when I was home and lengthened the cord on the spot at no charge. I cannot say enough about the integrity of this company! Their goal is to make the customer happy, and they stand behind their work 100%. It is without hesitation that I recommend Made in the Shade!

I highly recommend Made In The Shade. I had two other people try to repair our Duette shades and fail. John Briggs of Made In The Shade was prompt, courteous, explained what needed to be done, took the shades back to his workshop, ordered the parts needed, repaired and rehung the shades. It was a pleasure to deal with him.

Made in the Shade is a great Company and we were very pleased with their service. John, the owner, and Evan make a great team. They are very professional and experts in the field. We had 2 roll up shades repaired and replaced another one. We are extremely happy with the results! Highly recommend this Company!

Very happy with the service I received from John and Ethan. They were right on time for my appointment and fixed the strings on my shade within a few days. They also repaired two motorized shades that had been inoperable for many years. Their prices are extremely reasonable.
I highly recommend this company…sure glad I found them!

We moved into a new home in an area where we had no contacts but were referred to Made in the Shade of Northern Virginia. John Briggs met us before we even closed on our home purchase. He was helpful and accommodating even though he could only take “rough” measurements. After we took possession John met with us and was able to help us address our needs. Made in the Shade delivered on time, installed the shades we purchased and helped us to stay within our budget. All in all our experience was positive and provided for our needs without adding to the stress that typically derives from moving to new home.

John knows blinds and shades! The products they carry are great, high quality and beautiful. The installation was fast and efficient. We were impressed with their selection of blinds and the prices were much better than we expected. We highly recommend Made In the Shade of NOVA!

I was impressed by the owner, John, and his mature work ethic. He not only knows a lot about all kinds of window treatments, but he really works to make sure everything is just right. (I didn’t know you can have blinds motorized, or controlled with an app!) He is very professional… always shows up on time for every appointment, and treats our home with care. He’s not happy until you’re happy Definitely Recommend!!
