Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OKCmom1234 Bow up and warp badly in the heat!
I love these blinds, but ONLY on a shady window that doesn't get direct sunlight. Within *days* of putting these up, they bowed up terribly, and they look ridiculous now! I bought 11 of these, and the only ones that did not bow was the one that is on the north side of my house. I took them back and installed more, and the news ones did it again within maybe three days. Other than that, they really are very pretty, and easy to install. And for a 22"x72" window, $35 is not a bad price at all. But they're definitely not going to work for us, because they look soooo bad all warped and bowed like that! I sure wish HC would have used a better quality of PVC or something, so that they could take the heat!!
Also, raising the blinds is a pain, for sure. They don't raise well, coming up too much on the left or too much on the right or not really locking well or locking before you're done raising them, etc.
I'm disappointed because they're are so pretty, I really wanted them to work!

These blinds were easy to install. The connector on the right string comes off too easily but can be reattached. We installed them to the inside of the windows so I'm not sure what they would look like installed on the outside. Very happy with our purchase.

They are so beautiful when you put them up, BUT as the months go by they do warp and look HORRIBLE!!! I've only had them for about 6 months and almost all of the ones I have warped due to sun exposure. If you don't have any direct sun hitting your windows you will be ok but other than that don't waste your money!!! I'm so upset I've spent my money on these! Such a disappointment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Blugyrl Not made for windows with too much direct sun
I purchased two of these blinds for my den. The homes are rental property so I was away for three months. When I returned one of the blinds had warped on both sides. The other had not warped. It leads me to believe that these blinds cannot withstand too much direct sunlight. I contacted the company and was informed that there were under warranty and could be returned.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kevinjc86 nice blinds just don't expose to the SUN
First of these blinds WERE nice when we installed them in my new home in South Florida. After about a week or so they began to warp really badly in the sun; they were all wavy, twisted and bowed out. I don't have any tinting or awnings covering my windows any so they were fully exposed to the sun and being dark brown they absorb all of the sun's power. It's sad since blinds are to add privacy and BLOCK the sun, these blinds just don't hold up good being exposed to the sun.
Also another gripe, these blinds are said to be 64 inches tall but my window openings are 62 inches and they were about 2 inches short so in reality they were 60 inches tall.
On the last day of my 90 day return period I returned the blinds without incident (even without boxes) since I had the original receipt.
Play it safe and spend the extra few dollars and get real wood if you are going to have any type of sun exposure. I had real wood blinds in my old house and for the 4 years of harsh sun I never had any problems. Lesson learned.
