I've just bought a comservatory and would like some blinds, just over the windows (not the roof).
I had Hilary's round to quote, and the guy said they would fix them to the upvc frame with 3mm self tapping screws.
I had a look online and found another website that did made to measure self- fit ones, less than half the price of Hilary's. When I phoned this company, the said that Hilary's were a bunch of cowboys, and you should never fix blinds like that as the torque on the upvc would be such that after a few months things would start to work their way loose. Instead, you should drill through the upvc and into the metal frame and fix them to that.
So now I'm unsure about what to do. On the one hand, this guy could have been indulging in competitor bashing to get some trade. On the other hand, I know nothing about this, so I'm worried that he may have a point...
Has anyone fittend their own blinds - is screwing them into the frame acceptable? Is it an easy job (I'm ok but not great at diy).
Thanks in advance,
