We had shades installed in our new home in Athens area. Love all the fabrics and installation design. We purchased a remote control shade for a large area and is so easy to use. Mr. Rutledge was very nice to work with and our shades were ordered and installed in a timely fashion. Our back porch blinds are semi transparent and they turned out beautifully. Block sunlight but can still see through to back yard. Would recommend Southern Blinds and Shutters!
