Window Treatment

Window treatment definitions vary. “A window treatment” is a decorative and functional covering or modification for an interior or exterior window. All window treatments are rigid, soft, or layered. Window coverings include molding and valances. Frosted, smart, and stained glass are direct-application window coverings. Below are each category’s most popular window treatments.

Window Coverings

Shutters, shades, and blinds are hard treatments. Wood or acrylic louvers make up shutters. Hinges allow them to be mounted to the interior or exterior of windows. Shutters control light, protect privacy, and improve a property’s aesthetic. Wood shutters are popular due to their elegance. Blinds are a type of covering made of tiltable wood, plastic, or aluminum louvers. They obstruct people from seeing into homes, hence their name. Blinds can be adjusted to manage room lighting. The homeowner can create the ideal ambiance. Venetian, pleated, and vertical blinds are popular. Last are the hues.

I have used Ground Zero Home Inspections for two of my properties.  As an investor, it's not easy to get a full understanding of what we are facing considering we are out of the state of the true repair condition of the homes we are prospecting. Their professionalism, knowledge, thoroughness, and fast response are second to none. I have used Ground Zero Home Inspections services for my home and business. Great job and inspectors.

I am very pleased with the service I received, from the initial contact with your personnel to the technicians that handled my problems. It is great to deal with a company that values its customers. The report looked to be scary but that was apparently due to my inexperience with the project.  They were able to find the right company for us. Thanks.
