Solar Shades/Customer Service

I live in Florida and I just installed new windows in my condo. Despite the tinted glass, I still needed something to minimize the sun, as I have the sun all day in my condo! On top of that I have custom windows and was totally confused on how to measure for each window! I called First Rate and spoke to Maggie, who was awesome. She sent me samples of the different solar blinds, then guided me through the measuring process and the different type of mounting of the shades! The blinds are of superior quality, look amazing and fit the different sized windows perfectly! The attention to all the details that she went over with me, helped make the ordering process stress free. I highly recommend First Rate Blinds....they sell a quality product and offer first class Customer Service!

Very reasonable for custom shades.

I have ordered several of the top down bottom up light filtering cellular shades. The one set is for a 3 section bay window. They look so custom and expensive for what I paid. I always look around at pricing and first rate blinds is way more reasonable and you don’t have to deal with any of the sales most of the other companies run all the time (and are still more expensive). I ordered the daylight because most of my trim work is a cream off white color. Perfect Match. Just ordered the antique linen color for my other bay window, have not received yet but I have no doubt they will be just as nice.

I have a double window in my dining room and was concerned about getting a shade which would fit. First Rate Blinds got excellent reviews on Amazon so I decided to order. My main concern was getting the measurements right. I sent the measurements in and was contacted by a representative who was confirming how I measured. My husband and I remeasured according to the representative's guidelines. The shade was a perfect fit and color and was very easy to install. Also, the shade was packaged to protect the shade from any shipping damages. I am just beyond happy at how nice the shade compliments my dining room color and decor plus the quality is top-notch. Order without hesitation!



I ordered a shade for my large picture window in my living room. I was nervous, mainly because I don't trust myself when it comes to taking measurements but the shade came and fits like a glove. The shipment arrived MUCH earlier than expected and the installation was so easy, I was able to do it myself with only one arm (have a broken arm up by the shoulder). I will definitely order more for the rest of my home, now that I know how easy the installation is! Thanks so much!

Wonderful addition

We ordered large Roman shades for our newly enclosed sun porch and received them in less than two weeks. The company attention to detail and customer service is incredible. The shades are a perfect fit and look amazing in our floor to ceiling windows. I will definitely order from this company again when the need arises. Thank you, you are truly first rate!

I first discovered First Rate Blinds on Amazon. After checking their website, I decided to purchase 7 solar shades for my sun porch. I was somewhat nervous at first, but trusted in the excellent reviews on Amazon. The blinds arrived so quickly, well-packaged, and they are PERFECT. They were easy to install and look great! They make such a difference. I will order from First Rate Blinds any time I need another blind or shade.

Great Blinds & Super Customer Service

After buying a few different window blinds & being so dissatisfied with the quality, I came upon First Rate Blinds. This company is awesome! We were able to call & discuss the exact window measurements & they custom fit them to your size. The fit is super & the quality is great! They're customer service was A+ & they were so helpful. I will absolutely use them again & advice others to also.
