Factors influencing the cost of roller blinds installation
Even though roller blinds are usually considered an economical choice, actual prices can still vary from job to job. Factors that can affect the cost of installing these blinds include:
Plenty of roller blinds installers charge a “per square metre” rate. You’re likely to pay a a higher fee if you have larger or custom-sized windows.
Roller blinds come in three different fabrics: transparent, translucent, and blackout. Transparent blinds typically have thin fabrics, which effectively diffuse light while offering a clear view. These are often low-cost as well. Meanwhile, translucent blinds are thicker, so they are able to offer more privacy. They’re usually more expensive, though. Blackout blinds are the thickest and most expensive option available. As its name implies, it can block out light and give complete privacy. It also offers great protection from heat and ultraviolet rays.
A straightforward installation job will almost always be cheaper than a job that requires additional work. An example of this is having old or damaged blinds removed prior to installing new ones.
