Modern Design in Reno NV is bringing in unusual windows to the scene. I recently had an existing client that moved from the Old Southwest to MidTown. The new house had a roll up door in the living area. So they called me for a window covering for roll up garage door. Forgive the sentence structure, but I needed to write it that way for the search stuff. :)

I’m not going to spend a lot of time discussing this, because the video shows everything you need to see. There were a lot of things to consider on this job based on obstacles and the function of the product. The main thing that I was concerned about was how stable the shade would be when the door was opened.

Window Coverings for Roll Up Garage Door

We dealt with this on the installation by taking some precautions. But, if you are searching for “window covering for roll up garage door”, then this video will probably be helpful. I mention at the end of the video that we went over other options. I just wanted to express the main choice that I had suggested.

Other Options for Garage Door Blinds

I had presented to the client the option of using the Norman Window Fashions SmartFit honeycomb system for each individual window. See below for a video on this system. It would have been very functional and stylish, but the homeowner wanted something a bit simpler. The original homeowner had use a ready made drapery on a cable system for their window covering. But when the door opened, the drapery would have been hanging down in the middle of the room.

Clearly when looking for a “window covering for roll up garage door”, there are many options, but I liked this one for function and design. Thanks for reading.
