A Day in the life of Snug Date 11/01/10 Fitting Belgravia.
Date 11/01/10
Monday morning cold and still snow on the ground!!!
first job of the day was fitting made to measure Roman Blinds in a bay window. The windows were upvc ones and I had to screw into the frames as no space was available above. You actually get a very good fix into upvc. Blinds look great customer very happy.
Went to my next call to fit a Belgravia antique brass pole on a Patio door. I can honestly say the Belgravia pole is the best pole on the market for the price a 29mm pole with fantastic sturdy brackets. This pole can be cut down to any size and is available in many finishes, anyway I am diversifying. Very straight forward job drilling into a wooden lintel. This was a new house but sometimes the builders put a piece of timber in front of the steel lintel so you can get a good fix for the brackets.

Curtains and Blinds 7/01/10

A Day in the life of Snug Date 7/01/10 Vertical Blind.

Only a few jobs today – The snow was amazing but not for getting to our customers.
1. Went to my first customers house had to fit a large 89” vertical blind into a concrete lintel, this is top fixing very difficult to drill, you have to be patient and the drill will do the work. Using the correct raw plugs and screws for the job and you get a very good fix which will never come down. The blind vanes were made out of soft plastic as the room I was putting it in suffered badly with condensation. Customer very happy so she doesn’t need to clean the blind.
2. The next job was re-cording a piece of swish plastic track which had broken through wear and tear. The curtains were high up so a large pair of ladders were needed. Had to take the curtains off the track, and then take the track down. The fault was a sharp piece of plastic in the cord runner. I shortened the cord and filed down the sharp plastic. Excellent the track was working perfectly, so I put up the track and re-hung the curtains. Another delighted customer who didn’t need to pay for a new track.
Snow started to come down so called it a day and came home.
