Great Cellular Shades with Two Problems
By Home Improvement Guy
from Denver, CO
About Me Midrange Shopper
Comments about Blinds Comfortex Cellular Shades Room Darkening/Blackout 1/2" Virtuoso Blackout:
The Comfortex Room Darkening 1/2" cell size Virtuoso Blackout shades are a great product overall. They look good, appear to be very well made and are very effective at keeping out the bright Colorado sun when you need a darker room. There are two problems, however. One problem is raising larger shades of the cordless variety. We purchased 11 of these shades with the cordless option, and like the fact that they don't have cords dangling down. However, the larger shades among them (we have four that are about 4' wide and 6' long) became very difficult to raise after just a month or so of use. The retractors barely retract, and you have to "play with" these shades to get them to retract a few inches at a time, wait a moment, play for a few more inches, etc. It's takes quite a while to get them 3/4 or so of the way retracted.I'm not sure if an additional retractor mechanism added to the shaft in the header of these shades would fix the problem without making them too difficult to pull down, but we're contacting Steve's to discuss the problem.A second problem is that some of the bottom rails (the aluminum weight at the bottom of the shades) are warped. Several are very slightly concave upward, and one of the 11 shades is much worse. This obviously occurs at the manufacturer's plant, and I'm a little surprised they let this one out the door this way.I've attached two photos: one showing a shade about three quarters lowered (you can can see the concave warpage on this shade if you look closely, but it's not too bad); and then one of another shade rail that is really warped.Other than these two issues, which I am hopeful can be addressed, the material of the shades is very attractive, the foil inside the cells is effective at keeping heat outside, and they look really nice (except for the one) in our home.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

product needs some tweeking
from eastham ma.
service good, just frustrating that it is difficult to put up properly in the am, also the small clip/handle is not very usable. Other than that they are attractive and a very nice color. I would recommend the company again just not this product.
Complete house of shades
from fond du lac.wi
Went to a local suplier for Comfortex to get background info and then developed a "shopping list" of 17 shades consisting light filtering and balckout for bedrooms. Decided to have three large shades with motorization. Put my list together and requested quotes after getting 3 or 4 color samples from Steves NC. After all quotes (2 local and Steves) were in, Steves was the best price at about 1/3 of the local quotes excluding installation. As a test, I first ordered 3 shades to evaluate fit, quality, and installation difficulty. I determined based upon the order, [...] that I should not try to allow for width variation, i.e. provide exact opening size and perhaps slightly longer height than what you need. Minor problems experienced were the manufacturer suplied an incorrect color for side rails on one of the units and two of the three motorized units required programming as they were shipped without any. [...] I would certainly recommend Steve's to anyone looking to save a lot of money on shades ifthey want to install themselves. Other suppliers were going to charge me about $1000 to install thes items which took around 20 to 30 minutes for the nonmotorized versions and slightly longer for those requiring programming. I am very pleased with these units and have recommended Steve's to those at work that were interested.

Blocks Light at Night
from Naperville, IL
We got the top down bottom up feature and installed this in our Master Bedroom. The room is pitch dark at night (and slightly darker during the day even when we pull the blinds up completely), however, during the day some light seeps through the sides. I think there are optional sidings that cover those areas. We did not need to block light during the day so we didn't purchase those. We are happy with our purchase. Unbeatable prices, easy installation and good fit.
The quality of the shade is excellent

Free Shipping on most Blind OrdersMost blind orders include FREE Ground Shipping to your home or office in the contiguous United States.

The width when oversized freight charges apply varies depending on the manufacturer (usually it is around 95 inches or wider) and the charge may be up to $75 per manufacturer per order. M & B and Levolor do not charge oversized freight. Shutters have a freight charge due to the weight of the product. Most blind orders ship within 3 to 5 business days.
