Nothing But the Best

At Blind Builders Inc., the shades are up, and co-owner Nikki Rieber invites you to take a look inside.
Inside the spacious showroom of this family-owned and operated business in Feasterville is not only a wide selection of custom window treatments by industry leader Hunter Douglas, but also the values that are primarily responsible for the local company’s success.
“The reason for our longevity is the personal relationships we’ve developed,” says Rieber, who, with husband Brett, owns a business that has been providing unparalleled service to Bucks County and surrounding communities for 30 years. “Our customers know and trust us. We’ve been in business around here for a long time. We know them, and they know us. When our customers come in, we usually start by talking about their daughter or son, about what grade they’re in now, ask about their whole family. Hey, how did that knee surgery go? I hope everything is OK.
“We have that same type of personal relationship with our Hunter Douglas local sales reps and corporate counterparts,” she continues. “We know them; they know us. It’s more like a partnership than a business relationship.”
Customers focused on improving the look of the windows in their home can make no better decision than to choose Blind Builders for all their needs. Featured are the finest products by Hunter Douglas, the leading manufacturer of custom window coverings in North America. Whether in the market for any type of blinds, shades, shutters, drapery fabric, and top treatments, and in virtually any color, material, style, or function, customers can rest assured they are purchasing the best the industry has to offer.
Blind Builders’ goal is to make the customers’ shopping experience easy and personal, as Rieber notes. Each team member is friendly, knowledgeable, and committed to understanding individual preferences and working with customers to find the right product for their needs, style, and budget.
“We love what we do,” Rieber says, “and we’re happy to help however we can.”

Style and Service
For the past 60 years, Hunter Douglas’ innovative leadership has allowed for the development of revolutionary new products that meet today’s demand for fashion and function. All products are covered by a lifetime guarantee, designed with safety in mind, especially for children and pets, and are made with the highest-quality workmanship and materials. In fact, each product is GREENGUARD certified, a designation that ensures their products meet some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds into indoor air. 
For those reasons, Blind Builders made a decision four years ago to change their business model and exclusively offer Hunter Douglas products only. 
“We went exclusive with Hunter Douglas in 2015, but we’ve been selling their products since the very beginning,” Rieber says. “And as a Hunter Douglas Gallery Dealer, which is the highest-level designation for an independent dealer, we are able to offer Hunter Douglas programs and promotions and offer the most competitive prices. 
“Hunter Douglas is very ‘on trend’ with style, color, and design,” she continues. “The product lines are always evolving and on the forefront of the industry. With styles, function, and technology, customers are always getting top-of-the-line products.”
Hunter Douglas’s industry award-winning motorization technology, called PowerView, allows for the programing of shades to be opened or closed automatically at preferred positions at prescribed times of day, including sunrise and sunset. Control options include an ergonomic handheld remote, wall-mounted remote, and even an app for a phone or tablet that offers more customized settings. PowerView also offers integration with Alexa and Google Home and other home-automation systems. 
“PowerView is a very popular option, and can be added to any product,” Rieber says. “It’s especially popular with windows that are not easily accessible, such as windows on a second story or behind a tub.” 
Likewise, Blind Builders offers the finest in Hunter Douglas window coverings. Among them are the ever popular Silhouette® Window Shadings, which allow for the filling of a room with soft light while simultaneously maintaining a sense of privacy. Suspended between two sheers are unique S-shaped vanes that can be tilted to various angles, allowing light to filter through while preventing the outside world from looking in.
Hunter Douglas also offers the most energy efficient shade on the market, Duette® Architella Honeycomb Shades. The unique honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction provides deep, luminous color, true opaque appearance, and improved pleat retention. These shades fit and function beautifully on all window types, including skylights and specialty shaped windows. 
In addition, interior plantation-style shutters rank among the most sought-after Hunter Douglas items available through Blind Builders. According to Rieber, these shutters fit any décor, traditional or modern, and can be made to fit a variety of windows, including specialty shapes and sliding glass doors.
“All of our products are custom measured and installed and will vary in price range,” Rieber says. “With Hunter Douglas, customers know they’re getting the highest quality on the market, and we will stand behind that product.”
During a consultation or estimate with Blind Builders, the team led by Nikki and Brett Rieber help determine the best window treatment for a customer’s needs and budget. They encourage folks to ask questions and remain committed to making sure each new custom window treatment fits and functions as intended. Rieber notes, “After the installation is complete, our installers will take the time to go over how to operate your new window treatments. We will also take and dispose of the old blinds and shades if desired.” 
“For us, the bottom line is that we always make sure the customer is satisfied,” Rieber says. “And with Hunter Douglas, they are. It’s the best the industry has to offer.”
In other words, the shades are up and the blinds are open. Come see for yourself.
