I was looking around for shutters at various stores and I wasn't impressed with what I saw, not to mention the lack of helpful advice at the big box stores. I submitted an online request for a free in-home consultation by Excel Shades. Five minutes later I had the appointment booked for the exact time I wanted. The quality and look of the shutters is superior to anything I've seen in the market and the prices are very competitive. They take all the measurements so you don't have to do anything other than pick the style(s) of window coverings you want. The installation took place just under two weeks later and took less than 4 hours. Gabriel and his team are very accomodating and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I am one extremely satisfied customer and would recommend Excel Shades to anyone!
