Window Covering Dealer & Installer in Whitby

The main difference between Preferred Window Coverings and some of our competitors is the fact that Kevin is a Hunter Douglas Certified Installer. Whether it be shutters, blinds or draperies and hardware, if your coverings are installed by a non-certified installer your warranty may be void. We carry at all times a liability insurance binder and a WSIB Clearance Certificate.

Recommended Guidelines
When choosing a supplier for your window coverings, we advise you to consider the following:

  • It is better to use a dealer/salesperson that is trained in both product sales and installation hands-on. Most dealers have the salesperson expertise, but use a contractor to install. This can result in communication gaps and may complicate the process.
  • Ask the dealer if he uses a certified installer. Kevin Woods is one of approximately 200 Hunter Douglas Certified Installers in all of Canada. Only certified installers carry ID showing proof of their certification.
  • It is better to use a dealer that has a well decorated and up-to-date showroom. Small retail stores deal in volume; this gives them more experience and a better ability to provide you a personal service. Larger stores may have poor displays and no experience with products. If the dealer works from home or does it as a sideline there may be problems with all aspects of the business including delays in communication and delivery.
  • Generally a local business will be easier to deal with as they are closer to you and give you a more personal service.

Standard Practices
We take care of business and always have you, your children and your pets’ safety in mind when designing and installing window coverings in your home. All safety components are installed. Following, are a few of our standard safety practices:

  • We will remove and dispose of your unwanted existing coverings if you request it, at no extra charge
  • We bring dedicated inside shoes to wear in your home for installations
