Top Curtain Rod Installation related questions

The average cost of a curtain rod installation service can range from $40 to $55. But your service might cost more or less depending on the number of curtains, the type of curtain rod, and how long the job is likely to take. Specify the type of blinds and curtains you need to install,  and get the best quotes from curtain rod installers in your area. 

There are well over 30 different types of blinds and curtains, all with different types of rods and tracks. Your installer can advise you on the best curtain track options for your window curtains and space.

Curtain rods should be long enough to cover your window, plus some extra length, depending on if you’d like to install them inside the frame, on the architrave, or just outside the frame. It also depends on the type of blinds and curtains you’re installing.

Curtain installation will usually take anywhere between 20-45 minutes per curtain. Some window coverings (like vertical blinds) will take longer than others.

Research different types of curtains and blinds to get an idea of what type of curtain you’d like. Measure the windows and discuss the measurements and your preferences with the installer prior to their arrival.

If curtain rod installations aren’t perfectly straight and professionally finished, the result could be an unsafe or unattractive wall covering. Plus, your professional will be aware of legal requirements for adjustment chain length to ensure child safety.

What does a curtain rod installation service include?

New blinds or curtains can uplift the beauty and privacy of your space. If you're planning to have new curtains or blinds installed, Taskers can help with the job. Curtain installers can help you set up different types of window treatments. Whether you prefer Venetian blinds, vertical blinds, roller blinds, traditional curtains, eyelet curtains, classy drapes, or simple shades, your Tasker will apply their expertise and recommend the best solution when installing blinds and curtains in your home.

Here are the most common services you can get from professional blinds and curtain rod installers in your area:

Curtain installation

Your professional 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 Tasker 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 is a variety of curtain tracks available, 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 tracking, ready for installing 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 rods may be repaired or replaced, depending on the type and extent of the damage. If the 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.
