Gary’s crew put shutters in our two story home in a new development. We’ve used Millennium shutters twice now. We did almost the entire house with shutters except for 3 windows in our game room. The last time was in our former home here in Sarasota. We feel they do a wonderful job, are very neat and prompt too. We’ll definitely use them again!
After speaking with the owner, Gary Peters, over the phone, we scheduled a time to look at samples and take a tour of their manufacturing facility. We even had our 13 mo. Old daughter with us, and Gary had no problem with her checking out the samples too! Subsequent to that great experience, Gary (again the owner – not someone else) came to our home to measure all of our windows. That experience was pleasant. During that time, he shared with us the history of the company and educated us a bit about plantation shutters. It never felt “sales-y”. After taking all of the measurements (which included three regular windows, three sliders, two longer narrow windows, and a door, and side windowa), he quoted us, and explained the specifics of the quote. All we needed to decide was how many and which windows we wanted to get done – which we did within five minutes of him leaving: all of them! I called him back the following morning. The terms were simple…I dropped off a 50% deposit, and he said they would be done in 4-6 weeks. In early January (shortly after the first), I gave him a call just to check in as we were very excited to get them installed. Gary told us they would be there that Friday at 10:00 am and that’s exactly what happened. Two of the guys that manufactured them by hand in the facility came out to do the install. They were very nice and very professional. Because we had so many windows to do, they had to come back the following Monday – they actually offered to come back Saturday but we had a scheduling conflict. Sure enough, they came back Monday morning and finished the job by noon. Of course before they left, I asked them to measure the two windows in our Guest Bedroom that we hadn’t previously gotten measured!!!
They said they were used to being asked that at the end of a job – I guess it happens frequently!
Turn around time was quicker than anticipated. We had natural wood shutters installed in living room and bedroom and white shutters installed in 2 additional bedrooms and laundry room. Looks amazing and encases the window beautifully.
I went very well. He arrived when he said he would. Very professional. Offers an exceptional warranty on the work.
Gary and his crew did an amazing job of manufacturing and installing plantation shutters on all windows and doors in our new home. Gary from Millennium Shutters measured all of the windows and doors in our house for plantation shutters. The shutters would be manufactured in their shop in Sarasota. Before deciding to go with Millennium shutters I received two quotes from other companies. While Millennium Shutters was not the least expensive the price was very fair and they give a discount to Angie’s List subscribers. Six weeks after signing the contract Gary’s crew arrived to install the shutters. The shutters were very high quality and were painted with exact paint used to paint the trim in the house at no extra charge. The installers were very professional, friendly and cleaned up everything when they were done. When they were done, I was so pleased that I immediately ordered an additional shutter that will be installed next week.
If you are looking for high quality plantation shutters installed by a professional friendly crew at a fair price look no further, Millennium Shutters is the contractor to use!
Gary was great as was our installer. The shutters were extremely high quality and the installation was performed professionally.
We dealt with Gary Peters the owner. He came and measured all windows and had them back to us about five weeks later. The fellow that installed was so professional and polite. It was a wonderful experience dealing with this company.
They were on time and very neat. Would have them again to do work for us.
Very prompt and extremely neat and cleaned up after work was done. Excellent workmanship.
I just wanted to put a few words to paper to express my complete satisfaction at the quality of the workmanship, the painted finish, and the installation of all 22 of my shutters.
From the onset of this project, you were the consummate gentleman, a knowledgeable spokes person for your product and honest broker. I enjoyed meeting you and dealing with you through every phase of my purchase and delivery.
The fact that you and your employees take personal pride in delivering what you promise certainly secures your continued success as a businessman. I know that my new, custom made, high quality shutters will enhance the beauty and sophistication of my biggest investment…my home.
We had a good experience with Millennium Shutters at our old house, so we contacted them again when we installed plantation shutters in our new home. Gary responded to our call the same day, and gave us a great price. The shutters were finished before their estimated completion date, and the installer was extremely professional. The quality of workmanship is superb! I would highly recommend this company!
Gary’s note: The customer’s were very nice people to deal with. Their new house was under renovation and they were about to move in. They needed coverings on their windows and chose our plantation shutters. Although the lead time for fabrication was shorter than our norm we wanted to accommodate them by getting the shutters in ASAP. We are so pleased that they are happy and have taken the time to say so
