SunBlinds - Sunrise blinds in window option

logastellusMay 2, 2013

Hi.

Wondering if anybody has installed blinds in the windows with Sunrise and what your experience has been?

Also cost - how much does that option add to the cost of a window, on average?

We're doing tall casements.

I'm researching this but have not bought them. Cost wise (for my project) the blinds ran an additional 18% higher than without.

I'd get your own cost, however, (with and without blinds) I am attempting to do some really tall door panels. I have learned that the "wand" option is only available up to a certain "weight".

For taller heights (maybe in your case too) the external vertical "cord pull" is all that is available. Check the cost and check the pull type -- here is a link to the door page and what the cord pull looks like.

Not sure on the specifics of Sunrise's offerings, but the blinds in the glass have been a fairly problem-free option across manufacturers. That said, they are pricey, and I would avoid the pull cord type. Takes forever to run them up and down, and skips at times as well.

Yes, we're going to have windows that'll be 44x84 (the biggest).

HomeSealed - ok, thanks for the tip, will avoid the pull cord type.

With windows that large (especially if they operate) make certain they are reinforced and most definitely a higher quality brand if you go with vinyl.

Hi everyone..
I am also looking for this type of blinds for my home windows. But still, I have not purchased sun blinds. Suggest me anyone about online companies that offers high quality sun blinds at reasonable cost.
Thanks
