If only it were so easy as shooting screws into your ceiling. When you are mounting shades, especially motorized ones into a ceiling where there are uneven surfaces, great care needs to be taken to level out your surfaces. In most cases, shims can be used to level out gaps of an inch or so. But when the gaps are upwards of 3″, as they were in this downtown Reno condominium, more drastic measures needed to be taken. The video shows the project just before the installation of the fascia, which will hide the foundations needed to make this treatment work.

Another thing to keep in mind is that this window treatment is done completely with a battery based system, though AC adapters were used to keep the battery consumption to a minimum. The size of the largest shade was over 12 feet wide by 8 feet tall. One wall of windows was 33 feet wide. Motorization has really come a long way, but they wouldn’t have worked at all had the top of the window not been level.
