Additional Notes

Complaint: We chose Iris Window Coverings for this project as they installed sun shades in our living room several years ago. That experience was good and we were hoping for a similar experience with installing black out shades in our baby's room. Sadly this was the worst experience of its kind that we had. Their representative came to measure the windows and sent us estimate. Some time later I emailed him indicating that we would like to proceed with the project. In the middle of discussing details of installation this gentlemen disappeared for a week, with email and voice mails going unanswered. Eventually I received auto-response to one of these emails with a different contact. Another few weeks went by when the representative came by to do the final measurement. It was specified clearly both verbally and in writing that the product we ordered was black out shades. He mentioned that it would take 2 weeks to make the blinds with installation to follow. Three weeks later we were called with installation appointment. Not only the installers did not show up at scheduled time, nobody bothered to email or call indicating that they were running late or were unable to come. 3 hours later I received an email from their Scheduling and Dispatch manager saying that the installer got sick and would not be able to come. I responded with alternate times and pointed out the dissatisfactory experience with the company. A few hours later the manager called me again and said that he was able to find installers who would come in 20 minutes. About an hour later the installers came by and installed the new window shades. To our dismay these ended up being sun shades and not black out shades that we ordered. The product that was installed is completely useless as it is not the one we ordered.

Desired Settlement: Installing the proper black out shades that we ordered, replacing the batteries on previously installed sun shades as agreed by their representative.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 6, 2013/04/17) */ Hello, We are very sorry we will be doing the following to resolve this issue 1. we will replace the shades with the proper fabric. 2. we will replace the batteries on the three shades as agreed. 3. we will replace the chain on the new shades with the black chain as ordered. We will do all this as soon as the shade fabric comes in and we are very sorry for the misunderstanding. Thank you ************
