I’ve been on holiday to various parts of the world, but rarely experience temperatures at the level we’ve had in our own country this summer.
The high for me, on The English Rivera, was 33 degrees in early July.
Thankfully we don’t get the humidity that some countries have, otherwise it would make work unbearable. Fortunately it is bearable, so if you would like a quote, or just some advice, then give me a ring or fill out the form on this page for a call back.
One of the joys of the lovely summer we’ve been enjoying is being able to catch up on paperwork outside.
Sun umbrella up, lap top ready, cold drink to hand and work away. If only it was like this every summer in England.

Having been doing this for 30 years now, I often go back to customers I’ve seen before. Sometimes at the same house or maybe when they’ve moved on. I recently went back to a property I’d been to several times over the years, for two lovely ladies.
The property has now changed hands and I was pleased to fit Vertical Blinds, in the new conservatory for the new owners. It was also good to see many of my Blinds still there and working well.

These days I don’t cover the Dartmouth area, due to volume of work in my main catchment of Torbay, Totnes, Newton Abbot & Teignbridge. However, an old customer from Dartmouth had a problem with a Roller Blind I fitted.
Basically the side control had malfunctioned after a couple of years. Although out of guarantee I happily fitted a new one for free. I also treated myself and the van to a trip over the upper ferry across the Dart.

Wondering what to fit at the windows of your bay window.
Verticals & Venetians are equally practical, but for a classy look why not go for Wooden Venetians as seen in this job in Babbacombe. Both the lounge and bedroom fitted with White Wood Venetians with 50mm slats, stunning!

A lot of people seem to be knocking down walls and extending kitchen/diners these days. Here’s another one, in Paignton, with 2 bright red Vertical Blinds finishing off the job nicely.

Blinds are normally the last thing on the list when refurbishing. Here I fitted two lovely roller blinds to a beautiful new kitchen in Upper Brixham.

During the recent hot spell, 2 seagull chicks fell from next door’s roof. After a couple of days of being dive bombed by the parents I went to investigate. Unfortunately one of the chicks hadn’t survived, but one had. It did however appear to have a damaged wing.
On calling the RSPCA I was advised to try and catch the chick and place in a box for collection, within 24 hours. Not easy, with the constant dive bombing, with claws out, but I managed it, with the help of my partner and a golf umbrella.
The RSPCA duly collected the chick the following morning and after a couple of days the mother eventually went away. As a Torbay resident, not a great fan of seagulls, but it’s hard to leave a young helpless chick to suffer and possibly be taken by a cat or other animal.

With new builds going up all around my catchment area, I’m getting many orders to fit Blinds to whole houses.
This recent one in Weavers Way, Dartington, consisted of 3 Roller Blinds, 2 Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds and several Vertical Blinds.
Result, a happy customer and a happy Blind fitter. If you would like a quote for your new house give me a ring or fill out the form on this page for a call back.
An old customer, in Kingskerswell, recently asked if I could take down the Roller and Vertical Blinds I fitted, a couple of years ago, so that new double glazing could be fitted. Not a problem and while arranging when to refit them I was asked to supply and fit several new Blinds to other parts of the property.
Having refitted the downstairs, all new Blinds were fitted upstairs with 2 of them in the pictures here.
