The windows and doors in your greater Cincinnati home are part of what makes the house unique. But this uniqueness can bring trouble when it comes to choosing and hanging curtains, blinds, shutters and other door or window coverings. You may find that you need help hanging window treatments when you have large or arched windows, glass doors, transoms, sliding panels or other special window/door configurations. You could opt to leave them free of draperies, but what about privacy? What about protecting nearby furniture from fading in sunlight?
Get Professional Handyman Help for Hard-to-Reach Windows
For a convenient, budget-friendly way to add or change complicated window coverings on challenging doors and windows, contact an experienced handyman. Save time and frustration when you need help hanging window treatments while avoiding damage to your windows.
To accent your home’s architectural features and add to its appeal, consider these window-covering solutions:
- French doors – Add floor-to-ceiling drapery panels on each door for the illusion of a single, expansive picture window.
- Arched windows – They’re strikingly beautiful, but balancing privacy needs and aesthetic concerns may be challenging. Ask your handyman to install a drapery rod above and extending beyond the arch. Drapery panels can then be pulled to the sides of the windows, allowing the full arch shape to be appreciated. Traversing rods allow you to easily pull the drapes with cords or rod handles.
- Sliding glass doors or patio doors – Try cellular shades. Energy-saving honeycomb design protects your home from cold/heat, while offering privacy.
- Windowed front doors – Use sheer fabric, perhaps cinched or gathered, to let light in but limit visibility. You get privacy without darkening the space.
- Louvered shutters – Instead of or in addition to fabric curtains on any window or door, consider louvered shutters. Wooden or synthetic shutters can elevate the room’s design, adding an architectural element in the form of functional, stylish window treatments.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
