What does a curtain rod installation service include?

Curtain installers can help you set up a variety of different types of window treatments. Whether you prefer Venetian blinds, traditional curtains, or simple shades, your installer will apply their expertise and recommend the best solution for your home. Here are the most common services you can get help with:


Curtain installation

Your installer will measure and mark where the curtain brackets will go, making sure that the curtains will completely cover the window. Next, they’ll secure the brackets in place with screws and place the rod on the brackets, checking that the rod is level. If your installer is placing the brackets between wall studs, they may use plastic screw anchors to prevent the screws from coming out and damaging the walls. Finally, they’ll add the curtain rings to the rod, then secure the rod in place with more screws.


Curtain track installation

While there are lots of different types of curtain tracks, most installations will start by measuring the space to determine where to fit the brackets. They’ll screw the brackets into place and fit the curtain track, ready for hanging your curtain.


Shades/roller blind installation

It’s common to book blind and curtain installation together if you need both types of window coverings. For shades, also known as roller blinds, your installer will first measure and mark the area where the mounting brackets are going to be placed on the window frame. Next, they’ll drill holes into the marks before securing the mounting brackets on the marked area with screws, making sure that the male and female pieces go on the correct sides of the window. Finally, they’ll click the shades into place and fix in a tensioning device to secure the adjusting chain.


Curtain rod repair

Broken curtain rods may be repaired or replaced, depending on the type and extent of the damage. If the curtain rod bracket has been pulled out of the wall, your repairer will start by removing the curtain rod and drilling holes through the wall above and below where it was mounted. They’ll place small plastic anchors through each of these holes, before reattaching the curtain mounts to these anchors. Alternatively, your contractor may choose to repair the hole and re-attach your curtain mounts in a slightly different spot. If the curtain rod has been bent, your handyman may also be able to straighten it out using tools before re-hanging.
