Venetian blinds are great until something goes wrong. With so many moving parts, it can be tricky to know how to fix it yourself. That’s why Venetian blind repair is always best done by an experienced handyman. They’ll visit your home, diagnose the issue (and explain it in non-technical terms), and fix your blinds so they work smoothly again. All in all? A much better option than having to sort out a total replacement.
You’ll find the right person for your Venetian blind repairs on Airtasker. Simply post your task, review your offers, and choose the best handyman for the job. You’ll have fully functioning Venetian blinds again in no time.
It’s easy to find the right person to repair your blinds with our ratings and reviews system.

Not only will you save money by repairing your old Venetian blinds, but you can find a repairer who fits your budget.
Most Venetian blind problems are minor so they’re cost-effective to repair. If your blinds are broken in multiple places, it could be more cost-effective to do a replacement instead.
Venetian blinds are prone to broken or fraying cords and broken or bent slats. The tilting mechanism and bracket may also deteriorate over time.
To protect your Venetian blinds, keep them well maintained by removing dust regularly. Aside from blind cleaning, it’s always best to organise repairs as soon as you notice an issue so you can minimise damage.
Venetian blind repair usually costs around $60-$150 when you book your service on Airtasker. But the price will depend on the number of blinds, the repairs needed, and how long it’ll take to get the job done.

Venetian Blinds Fitting & Repair
There are a number of issues that Venetian blinds are prone to - from bracket problems, cord breakage, tangling, slats, and sizing problems. Your blind repair person will assess the problem and recommend the best solution, whether replacing a part, or making some adjustments. Here are some of the most common problems and solutions:
Venetian blinds cord repairs can range from totally replacing the string to make a simple adjustment so it can pull smoothly again. If the string is broken, your technician will source a suitable replacement string. They’ll remove the caps and pull out the old cord, using this to measure and cut the new cord before restringing your blinds and testing them. If the cord was broken or frayed, they’ll also be sure to check for any sharp edges that might wear down the cord and ensure these are covered, sanded back, or replaced. If the blind isn’t staying up even though you’ve locked it in place, your Venetian blind repairer may need to replace the lock or reactivate your tension device. Or if your blind isn’t raising evenly or easily, it’s likely an issue with the lifting strings, so your repairer will replace these.
If your slats are bent, warped, or broken, they’ll need replacing. Your blind repairer will take the plugs off the bottom rail and undo the knots before pulling the string through to the damaged slat. They’ll remote this slat and slide on the replacement piece before rethreading the cord back through each hole. Finally, they’ll re-tie the knot and replace the plugs.
If your Venetian blinds are hitting something or fall out of the box brackets, they might need readjusting. Your repairer will remount your brackets so they’re the right distance apart and so that your blinds have enough clearance from obstacles. Or if you want to move your blinds to another window, your technician will be able to help. They’ll unscrew the mounting brackets and re-attach them to your new window frame - either inside the recess or above - depending on your preferences.
Maybe you’ve bought some new Venetian blinds that you need installed but they’re not quite the right fit? You can get your blinds trimmed to fit your window size or your technician can install the blinds so they sit in front of the window frame, rather than inside of it.
If your tilt mechanism isn’t working anymore, your Venetian blind repairer will be able to fix it. If the slats don’t tilt, the gear mechanism has failed and they’ll replace it. Or if the tilt wand is stiff, they may either replace the gear mechanism or switch it to a cord for easier adjusting.

We have 3 venetian blinds (140cm wide) that need fitting in our office. They have a drop of about 200cm, so any handyman will need to come with a decent-sized ladder!
Turned up with all the tools, some extra bits we'd overlooked (screws!) and was both fast and professional. Would happily recommend and use again.

My Venetian blinds won’t ‘tilt’ open or close. The tilt mechanism needs replacing on large living room Venetian blinds and smaller bedroom Venetian blinds. Need someone to take down the blinds, fit a new tilt mechanism in, and hand blinds up again. It’ll need to be a handyman who has either done this before, or knows how to do it. Thanks, Barry
