We hope this video allows you to learn about us and how we work with our clients.
From the first call to set up an appointment through to the follow up visit to ensure our needs were met, Ryan was nothing but completely dedicated to our service and satisfaction. In our initial visit to their showroom, with Ryan and Ashley, they gave us great advice and things to consider prior to making our decision. The best surprise was that Ryan actually install the shutters himself. Apollo does not contract the work out to a third party (which we have had horrible experiences with the big box stores). Ryan showed up right on time and installed the plantation shutters we chose with expertise and excellence. He even sent us pictures of the finished product since we were both at work. Instead of just a phone call to check on us, Ryan actually came back a week later to check his work and to ensure that their work met our expectations. If I ever need anything else done, there is no doubt that I will use him again – and would recommend Apollo to anyone who needs any type of window treatments.”
I have been truly pleased and impressed with both the service/installations and professionalism displayed by this family-owned business. My home was carefully reviewed with respect to the work that I wanted to have done, and a detailed estimate prepared so that I could see specifically what would be ordered, and the pricing. I had obtained an estimate from another company first, whose process of offering an estimate and business practices struck me as being very vague, so this careful and detailed approach from Windows by Apollo caught my attention right away.
Every step of the way Ryan seemed sincerely interested in how I felt about their work and approach to my home, checking with me to ensure that they were doing exactly what I wanted with regard to the shutters in terms of color, style, and method of installation. They were very patient with all questions and necessary adjustments, both in the initial phase of creating the work order, and in the process of eventual installation. They not only write their own orders on site but also do the installations, and are highly skilled in this work.
After the initial installation, Ryan and his Dad returned to do some detailed finishing work, and were very meticulous about that. They needed to come back with some additional trim and attachment pieces that they didn’t have available on the first day they worked, but I also made a list of some other concerns and necessary adjustments, which Ryan copied and carefully attended to during the finishing touches day of their work.
The Hunter Douglas shutters look lovely in my home; they provide the desired privacy in certain areas, and also fit perfectly with the decor that I have chosen for my home. My home has beautiful large windows that look out on woods around the back, and let lots of light in. I wanted some window coverings that would offer privacy without my losing the beauty of the large windows that are such an important feature of my home, and these shutters fit that requirement perfectly. They can be fully opened when desired to allow the beauty and light in, but cover well when privacy is more desirable.
There was one set of shutters where the ‘look’ of the bi-fold style, once installed, was slightly different than what I had expected; there was nothing wrong with the shutters, just a different overall look than I had planned. However, after living with them for a couple of weeks, I decided that they looked lovely as they are, that I just wasn’t accustomed to having coverings on the windows at all since I have been renovating and everything has been wide open. However, Ryan would have changed out that entire part of the order if I really felt I hadn’t received what I had expected, and was truly unhappy with it; he offered an alternative, but that alternative would have had some undesirable results. I decided that the existing style of shutter really looks lovely and fits the particular room the best of the alternatives.
There is a professionalism and genuine caring in their approach that I was really touched by, and they have been so nice to have working in my home and to deal with throughout – trustworthy and pleasant. They are already helping me with an additional smaller project, and I plan to call on them for other window treatments I might need on the interior of my home. Maybe their products and work are a little more expensive than average but everything that comes with their approach makes it worthwhile.”
Working with Ryan and Ashley at Exciting Windows by Apollo was the answer for us to select window shades for our large living room, family room, and kitchen windows. This family run business is personable and very invested in creating a great look for our recently remodeled space. They came to our home two times and we visited their showroom to discuss style options and pricing to fit our budget and taste. Never felt rushed or pressured so our major purchase was done with ease. We purchased the Hunter Douglas designer banded PowerView® and designer screen roller shades. Decided on the Hunter Douglas PowerVeiw® shades which was a good choice for us. It was great to have Ryan do the installation himself (no contractors). Our next purchase will be to finish the look with custom curtain panels in the living room with Apollo.”
From the time I met the team at Apollo at the Sharonville Remodeling Expo, to the time our beautiful custom drapery side panels were installed, we were taken care of professionally. Tina came out with the perfect selections to choose from and she knew exactly what I wanted. Our project was not easy to tackle, and Apollo did a spectacular job. We could not be more thrilled.”
I love our new draperies by Apollo and can’t say enough about the wonderful quality ad beauty of the finished product. This company certainly can take pride in the representatives and employees who sell and create its products. Tina is so knowledgeable in all aspects of measurement and design that the product selection and ordering process was a breeze. My custom drapery and throw pillow order was delivered on time, as promised, and was professionally installed. I could not be happier.”
We entered the showroom and met Ashley who showed us all the different Hunter Douglas products and she was very knowledgeable and helpful In helping us choose the Hunter Douglas PowerView® Parkland Wood blind. Tina came to our home and did the measurements and gave us a price. She was very nice and professional and was helpful in choosing a blind color. Tina’s son, Ryan, did the installation. He was on time and did a great job installing the blind and cleaning up. Great people and company.”
I recently worked with Tina at Exciting Windows by Apollo to update 6 family room windows. My husband and I LOVE our new upholstered cornice boards and Hunter Douglas PowerView Applause shades! In fact this is the 3rd time I have gone to this company for help with design and fabric selection. Needless to say, the knowledge and work quality of their staff is top notch!”
I could not have been more pleased. Every interaction with Tina, Ashley, and Ryan could not have been better. I was thrilled with the service and I am thrilled with the finished product.”
Excellent customer service and the finished product exceeded my expectations! (Custom Upholstered Cornices over Stationary Side Panels for Sliding Patio Doors) Great turnaround time, as well. I will do business with them again.”
My service experience was positive from the first day that I walked into the showroom until the day of installation. One of my best service experience ever…thanks for being professional, friendly, and knowledgeable.”
I found the selection of Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shades to be professionally made and installed. Tina was helpful, very knowledgeable on the Hunter Douglas product(s) and wonderful to work with . Ryan installed the shades on time and patiently took time to instruct me on the PowerView® automated system and app. I would be happy to be used as a reference for any potential client.”
I couldn’t be happier with my new Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shadings! The turnaround time from when I placed the order to installation was amazing! Customer service was wonderful, and everyone was so helpful-from choosing the color & style to the extremely nice, very professional young man who installed the shades. I will definitely call Apollo again for help with future window treatments – they made everything so easy. It was a pleasure working with all involved!”
We have a wonderful area outside overlooking our pool and backyard. This area has a roof and columns and we have our TV mounted on outside of house and deep-seating chairs. This is where we spend all of our time during 3 seasons. When the sun is out in late afternoon we get a glare on the TV and the sun can be very hot. I wanted blinds to break that sun. Dale help me pick perfect color and installed blinds. This has been the best thing…love that it did all we wanted and more…we actually have been using the area even more because it also blocks wind and keeps area warmer to extend our life outside even longer. Thanks APOLLO for all your help!”
Our experience with Exciting Windows by Apollo was exceptional. Immediately, we met Tina and knew we had more than a vendor. She is a smart, experienced professional who cares. She is proud of this family-grown business for good reason and I was happy to hear her ideas, her story and to learn their process. Not one to only gush on a consumer experience, I want to add that our only setback was cost perception. We had zero concept of what custom draperies would cost (our misguidance). Make no mistake that you get what you pay for. Our custom window treatments were not cheap, but the end result is everything and more. The treatments are as utilitarian as they are beautiful and Tina is deft to guide you toward what feels right for you in style, color AND cost (you can bet this smart lady will find you a coupon if its out there to be had). If you are in the market for custom window treatments, please consider this team. I don’t regret our purchase and am thrilled with the service and the product.”
Tina from Apollo Draperies was wonderful to work with. We had just remodeled our family room and adjoining kitchen and I wasn’t sure how to trim the windows. Having someone come into my home and see the situation was great. Her ideas were perfect and we are very pleased with the results. We get many compliments on our window blinds. I will definitely use them again!!!”
Tina was very professional when she came to our house to show us their products.. We were very pleased with her thoroughness that day. We did buy Hunter Douglas Vignette Modern Roman Shades for our family room and kitchen area. The install went smoothly. it has been four months since we got our shades, and we just love them!!! Great product and great people to work with. I would highly recommend them, and can’t wait to finish up the rest of our rooms.”
Ryan came to my house and measured all my windows and within a month had all new Hunter Douglas Applause® shades. I gave him my budget and he was able to find something that would look great but not break the bank. Love my shades. It’s a small family business so I totally recommend these guys and gals.”
I could not be happier with the curtains that we got. Tina was very knowledgable and spent the time to get to know me and what I wanted. The end result is a perfect fit and has transformed our kitchen. Will definitely recommend Exciting Windows by Apollo to friends and family.”
I have already used Apollo’s services twice and have recommended them to friends as well. Dale and Ryan are very efficient, good at what they do and a pleasure to work with!”
I hired Apollo to supply and install wood blinds for every window in my 100 year old home. The experience from beginning to end was five star. I also used Apollo for upholstery. Again, the experience was excellent and workmanship tops.”
Tina spent considerable time getting to know a little about us, our home/style/furnishings/colors, and our price range for the project. She presented my examples of valences made for customers by the company and also a picture of a wall of valences in a limited types of fabrics that helped narrow our style preferences (really like this!) She had ample samples of fabrics and trims and readily put these right next to our windows so we could visualize what they would like next to our walls and furnishings. She helped us narrow down the possibilities, but purposely left the final decision to us, for which I commend her.”
From my initial call to exciting windows! by Apollo to the installation of my valences, I felt like my preferences and business mattered to this company. The follow up to my initial call happened within 24 hours and an appointment was scheduled within the next 10 days.”
Installation occurred within the time frame estimated by Tina; Ryan was on time, efficient, and even steamed the valences to ensure they looked great. The use of an ipad for the selection process and billing was very thorough and efficient, much preferred over doing the same activities in a showroom. We are very pleased with our new valances and the entire experience in working with exciting windows! by Apollo!”
Purchased: 7 blinds & 6 – two-story floor length curtains. Communication is key. Very organized company. From design, quality, professionalism and service…you can’t beat them! The blinds and window treatments look fabulous! Choosing the patterned fabric, topper and fringe was so much fun.”
They were very efficient and dependable. Easy to work with and had great suggestions. We were very pleased. Thank you!”
I had pinch pleat drapes installed in my family room on a 5 panel bowed window including the traverse rod and top down/bottom up blinds on two pairs of windows in my sun room. The design agent from Apollo, Tina showed me many options for drape types and many more fabric choices. She was very helpful with the blinds because I thought I wanted see through blinds but she explained since I needed them for privacy that blinds I could see out through people could also see in through so I chose the top down/ bottom up in a white material and they look great on my white woodwork windows. Both the drapes and the blinds look and function great. The installer was an expert too. I couldn’t be happier.”
They’ve been exciting my windows for many houses and many years! Also, I love the chairs they’ve re-ulpostered for me and the many window treatments and cushions they’ve made me. In fact, they were featured in the December issue of Housetrends for their amazing work in my present home!! Thanks Tina and Dale!!!”
My initial contact with Apollo was through their web service requesting a free home estimate. They were extremely prompt and responsive and eager to make the appointment. After we finalized the date, Tina came out and spent a few hours with us to determine the best look, style and fit for our environment. Her professionalism was outstanding and I can’t tell you how impressed I was with the time that she took with us. My partner and I determined that we were going to get three estimates due to the cost. After it was all said and done, we decided that we really liked the way the folks from Apollo treated us and decided to go with them even though they were a little higher than the other two. They did what they said they were going to do, the service was outstanding and our custom drapery is absolutely beautiful! I’d highly recommend this company to anyone looking for window treatment!!!”
Perfectly. From the moment I walked into their store, to the install, it was pretty much flawless. No complaints. They are family owned and truly care about their product and making the customer happy.”
All appointments were exactly on time and, importantly,the times were adjusted to my convenience. Tina is the best consultant and designer that I have had in my home.she showed me many designs and different approaches to choose from as well as color and fabric.all beautiful and wonderful. not your “department store” choices.”
Measurements must have been very accurate, as the finished draperies were exactly what I envisioned and wanted. The quality and workmanship were exactly as promised . I plan on future business with Apollo……this is for sure!!!”
Apollo did such a wonderful job. Tina was very helpful coordinating patterns and staying within budget. The installation was very professional. I highly recommend Apollo.”
Exciting Windows! by Apollo made the huge task of replacing 30 year old vertical blinds in our office, Bryan Equipment Sales, seem simple. Tina explained all the different options thoroughly and her suggestions made the decision making process very easy. They completed the job with very little disruption to our employees and the shades look awesome.I have received numerous compliments on them. Dale and Ryan were totally professional and cleaned up everything when they were finished.”
Everyone at Apollo was so easy to work with. I told Tina how much I wanted to spend and she found beautiful fabric that fit my budget. Turnover was only 4 weeks which I thought was excellent. I am soooo pleased with how the drapes turned out. I sent a broken window shade back with the installer so it could be restrung. Initially I was told it would take a week but I got a call two days later saying it was done. You can’t beat that kind of service.Description of work: Purchased floor to ceiling blackout drapes in a guest bedroom. Rods needed to be hung from the ceiling because of high window.”
Always professional, friendly service from a hometown, family company I have used for years. They will diligently work with you to make sure you have just what you’d like.”
We had several windows that we had window treatments installed. Would recommend very highly from the first visit to completion. Very helpful in giving us ideas but still decision was ours. Very pleased with the end product.”
Ryan Engdahl both made the estimate and did the installation. We selected Hunter Douglas Everwood blinds plus valances which custom measured and installed on five windows. The job went very well. The blinds look great!”
After several visits with Tina I decided on a style and fabric. Tina never pressured me, she was very patient and helpful. Her knowledge on how the different types of fabric and style of treatment would work in my kitchen was exceptional. This is my third time using this company and I plan to use them again soon. I highly recommend Tina and this company!”
They are terrific. Prompt. Courteous. The installation was flawless. Measurements were proofed before ordering. They left my house immaculate and I can’t say enough nice things. I wish all vendors were this responsible, courteous and just plain great. I’d use them again in a heartbeat (I already have — but I’m not moving again anytime soon).Description of work: I needed shades for “fishbowl” windows for a condo downtown. Last time I used them, I needed shades and draperies for another home.”
The new window treatments that you made for us this past year have transformed our house, by removing our more traditional drapes and replacing them with updated fabric roman shades and valances; our place is immediately updated. Your service and help with decisions, measurements and installation could not have been better. We wont forget you when we need to go to the next stage in our house or when we’re asked for recommendations your are a class act.”
