Custom Manufacture Drapes & Curtains
There are a lot of moving steps to custom manufactured drapes for both commercial and residential jobs in Colorado; from designing, field measuring, yardage specifications, manufacturing and installations. One has to wonder why so many steps?
First of all, drapes begin at the design stage:
Bidding off of plans is only used as a rough draft and concept of the project. It’s very important at this stage to make sure adequate clearance had been accounted for inside mount, double rod set-up, etc., if not, this could hamper the project and design.
This is where the project begins to come together as you get to see the surroundings of the actual opening and any obstacles e.g. sprinkler heads, exit signs, alarm & fire indicators, electrical outlets etc. How much room above windows, is it brick, drywall etc. This is very important for double rod set-up. What I have discovered most of the time with ceiling mounted rods, the builder, designer, or architect don’t allow enough clearance between the rods without first talking to a drapery manufacture or drapery installer or rod manufacture.
At Precision Draperies, we take photos with specifications of the project to help identify any issues. This extremely helps when reviewing the project as you have an actual picture and then can discuss the project with builder, designer, or architect.
After field measuring this is where you tweak the yardages if needed. Review the job with the builder, designer, or architect and discuss any issues, challenges or change orders.
Once the design and field measure are ready & approved, a work order is produced so that the custom drapes are manufactured to fit the projected job.
At Precision Draperies, since we are the manufacture we see the project from start to finish. Once the project is in our system we are constantly thinking and tweaking the job to ensure that we try catching everything, and sometimes we catch something that we missed.
This is where the grommet side hangs all comes together, after putting all the steps together. If done correctly the installation should come together without any hitches.
The key in putting all steps together begins at the design and field measure. If you catch most of the details at the field measure you can bet on a clean and successful installation.
