meet the burress team
David and Cheri Burress have lived in the upstate of South Carolina for more than 30 years where they have raised their children and been active in the local community.
In 1994 they began a business selling, finishing and installing Custom Plantation Shutters. They added other window treatment options to their product lines as the local market expanded with unprecedented growth in the Greenville, SC area. These products include blinds, shades, exterior shutters, bahama shutters, custom drapery and drapery hardware.
In keeping with technology and innovation, they have continued to expand with window treatment motorization, certified child and pet safe products, using suppliers with sustainable resourcing, offering a selection of eco-friendly "Greenguard Indoor Air Quality" products, and integrating currently trending design elements.
From the very beginning, David and Cheri have worked together as a team, each bringing their own area of specialty to every business transaction.
With more than 23 years as a professional, David measures every job with precision and accuracy. He assesses each window, its casing and trim, and the necessary installation hardware to determine the most attractive and functional installation method. He carefully records each detail and reviews them with our suppliers to make sure he shows up on installation day with the correct product that has the perfect fit! Having installed many thousands of window treatments over the years, he brings experience and expertise to every installation!
David has designed a line of Exterior & Bahama Shutters. After using other exterior shutter suppliers, he realized that finding an exterior shutter that was both architecturally beautiful and durable was nearly impossible. He now has an expansive selection of styles, finishes, and materials to offer. He can accent any exterior home style, and provide years of low maintenance, architectural beauty!
Cheri's education in Interior Design, uniquely qualifies her as a window treatment design consultant. With an eye for balance, color, and design, she brings a professional perspective to every appointment. Having established dynamic relationships with "to the trade" resources, she keeps a fresh collection of trending fabrics, styles and hardware to give your home its very best look.
When Cheri arrives for a design & measure consultation, she will assess your home decor style, interior colors and design elements and make recommendations that will enhance your windows and the design of your room. She will discuss not only "form" but also "function." How do you want your window treatments to operate? Will you be opening and closing them daily? Can you conveniently access them? Do you need privacy in this area? What level of light control and UV block do you need? Along with budget considerations, Cheri will make product, color and design recommendations that will meet all of your needs and help you create the "perfect" look for your windows!
Cheri will also be in touch with you from the office. She schedules appointments then follows up with reminders, questions, and installation confirmations. Any need you might have regarding a quote, invoice, payment or follow up, Cheri will take care of!
David and Cheri Burress are a team that brings you the best in every aspect of a window treatment purchase. From design to installation, they work as a cohesive whole bringing efficiency, accuracy and expertise to you and your project.
