Is A Busy Installer A Better Installer?

is a busy installer a better installer

It’s a bit of a cliché, but in the world of dating, women have been know to say that “all of the good men are married or gay.”

In the world of window treatments they could lament that “all of the good installers are too busy.” But it we can offer some advice, a busy installer is a better choice.

That might seem counter-intuitive to say. You might think that a busy installer has too much on his plate. You might wonder if his level of service will be affected. But let’s be honest. Busy people get things done.

How do you define what a “busy person” is?

The Las Vegas Sun did a pretty good job when writing a similar article a few years ago.

Here’s how they defined it:

…a busy person is one who is sought after for his specific specialty because he does it well. He is the one who always has something to do and he is the one everyone chooses to help them when a task needs to be accomplished. He is not the unorganized, multi-tasker who swoops in with a flurry of activity but never really accomplishes much beyond creating chaos. The busy person I refer to is a performer and, because of his ability, is busy. He works on important things, not just busywork!

The article also said that busy people are organized. They are able to delegate. Busy people are planners of their work. They have the drive to perform.

A quality window treatment installer meets all of those criteria. The business of properly installing window treatments is a niche within the niche of interior design and home decorating. There are a number of reasons to hire a professional installer. Expertise and peace of mind are just two of those reasons.

Ask any designer and they will tell you that a good installer is almost priceless. It is not uncommon for the self-employed installer to work with 5, 10, or even 20 different designers.

Usually, the more skilled the installer is, the better their reputation is. The better their reputation is, the busier that installer is likely to be.

Most of those same designers do not mind having to book their installation projects several days in advance. They know the quality of the workmanship they will receive compared to the first available “handyman” to answer an ad on Craigslist.

As a matter of fact, it’s okay to question the situation if the installer was not busy for more than a few days. There is no such thing as an independently wealthy installer that has nothing but time on his hands while he waits for the phone to ring.
