What’s New in Window Coverings & Motorization

Child Safety

One of the most important innovations over the last couple of years are child safe lifting systems for your window coverings.  All manufacturers are now offering some sort of safe lifting  system that eliminates cords and protects your children.  From simply using a motor or a cordless lift systems,  let us show you how to protect your children when purchasing new window coverings.

Lutron QED Motors

Over the past few years technology has not only changed the world it has changed the window covering industry.  With the introduction of Lutron’s QED (Quiet Electric Drive) technology motorizing window coverings have entered a new era.  The beauty of the QED Drive is that it is QUIET.  No other motor on the market can match the nearly silent operation of the QED Drive.   The QED drive can be used on roller shades, roman shades and drapery tracks.  Sierra Window Coverings is the only authorized Lutron Window Systems Dealer in the Reno/Tahoe Area.

We understand how to work with the materials, the manufacturer, and most importantly with you, to solve your toughest window covering problem.

  • If you are a vacation owner, we understand that when you come up for the weekend, you would rather have fun and not work!  We understand that you would like expert advice, the opportunity to touch, feel and see the fabrics, and a competitive price. Most importantly, you would like to have the job installed correctly without you being there. We can make a sales or installation appointment that fits into your busy schedule, even over the weekend.
  • We honestly feel that we have the best pricing available, there are no gimmicks or false discounts on inflated prices.  We will give you the best price we can and if you do find a lower price on the exact same product,  we will beat anybody's price.  Shop and compare. Ask for references, just check ours out in the references section of our website! Avoid that drive to Reno's Home Depot or an out of area window covering provider, and get a high quality product, timely service, and professional attention in your own home for a competitive price.
  • No window is a perfect square. Measuring for precise fit is a bit of a skill. Avoid gaps and unsightly slants.  As professionals, we will make sure your window coverings fit as best as possible with the product you choose. There are tricks to the trade!
  • We install all of the blinds we sell.  We do not pass the installation on to another company.  Why is this important?   It's important because when we measure we know what the installation is going to require and can also anticipate and avoid problems.    It is also important years down the road, because pulling too hard on the string can cause it to break no matter how durable the quality is. It's not something that should occur, but on occasion it happens.
