Top Roman Blind Fitters related questions
Can a Tasker also help me repair my roman blinds?
Yes, of course! Just like any other blind or curtain, roman blinds are also prone to staining or fading fabric due to UV and moisture exposure, or glitches on operating mechanisms. If you don't want to overspend for a costly replacement purchase, our Taskers can help fix your roman blinds for you. Just let us know what needs repairing when posting your task so we can find you a suitable repair expert who can address your concerns right away.
How long does it take to fit a roman blind?
It depends on the manufacturer's recommended installation process. Typically, it takes 20-30 minutes to fit one set of roman blinds, and at least a day if you want multiple blinds installed throughout your house or office. This estimate does not include the time needed for measuring your frames, drilling holes, and removing old fixtures. If you want a more accurate time frame, you can direct your queries to your Tasker.
What is the difference between roman blinds and roller blinds?
Roman blinds are more of a curtain and blind hybrid that features a soft fabric that neatly folds into pleats when raised. Meanwhile, roller blinds contain a single piece of fabric that rolls around a casing placed at the top of your window frame. Roman blinds are typically used for traditional houses while roller blinds are a staple choice for modern homes, offices, and even retail shops.
Can a Tasker also help me dispose of my old roman blinds?
Definitely! For replacements, our Taskers can also take over the proper disposal of your old roman blinds that you don't intend to use again. If they are still good to reuse, they can be resold or donated. Otherwise, a removal specialist can also send them to a recycling facility where they can be reprocessed to a new valuable product. Our household rubbish removers will ensure that your blinds won't directly end up in the landfill.
Should roman blinds be inside or outside recess?
It depends on your personal choice. Usually, roman blinds are installed outside your window frame recess to allow and maximise the light source. Installations inside the window recess are not so typical, although it is an ideal option if the window has no flat wall space. If your roman blind has a width measurement that is less than 5cm of your wall space, then fitting inside the recess is more suitable.

What do roman blind fitting services include?
Our roman blind fitters can take care of installing your new roman blinds for your living room or bedroom, or even for your cafe or office space. They'll arrive at your location with the necessary tools needed for a fitting procedure, which can include a drill, a screwdriver, a tape measure, and a level. If you're getting your blinds fitter for the first time, here's what you can expect:
Measuring window frames
Taking proper window frame measurements is crucial for any blind fitting procedure. Your fitter starts by measuring the headrail to see if it fits your window. If they appear longer, it may be best to install your blinds outside your window recess. Afterwards, they proceed to mark the bracket mounting spots accordingly. Keep in mind that the total distance of the brackets will depend on the length measurement of the headrail.
Mounting of brackets
Depending on your preferred blind fitting, your Tasket might install your brackets either onto the ceiling for outside mounting, wall, or top corners inside your window frame. Then, they proceed with drilling holes based on the marked location and screwing brackets into the holes. They should be distanced equally around your window frames, ensuring that your roman blinds won't obstruct the window handle.
Roman blinds fixings
Some models or styles require different fitting methods, so ensure to hand over the manual to your fitter so they can efficiently follow the recommended procedure. Roman blinds typically have its fabric already attached to the headrail. In this case, your fitter can just snap the set directly onto the brackets, and it should be good to go. Otherwise, they can also follow the traditional way of fitting the headrail first, then followed by the shades.
Once your roman blinds are installed, your fitter can check the cord and chain to ensure that the shades lift and fall accordingly. They can also recheck if the screws, brackets, and headrails are all fastened and secured.
Restringing a roman blind
If your roman blinds are no longer folding neatly or moving smoothly, it might be due to frayed or broken strings. Your fitter may need to inspect your blinds to identify the cause of damage and perform the necessary repairs to prevent the same problem from recurring. They also might have to replace your old string with a thicker and more durable one, especially if the old string isn't strong enough to carry the fabric and mechanism of your roman blinds.
