The technicians at Your Home Concepts outfit dwellings in window treatments that are locally manufactured in the North Dallas area. From metal and wood blinds to honeycomb and roller shades, the experts efficiently install stylish sheaths within two weeks of ordering. In addition to installing window adornments, the company's skilled craftspeople pamper homes with interior flooring and carpeting services, along with custom paint services that color the interior, exterior, or inner soul of any abode.
Your Home Concepts also aims to improve each client’s home energy-usage profile through services that pinpoint and patch energy inefficiencies. This tenacity has earned the company the Building Performance Institute’s seal of approval. Procedures range from the relatively simple, such as a phone call to the electric company to correct problems with monthly service, to more labor-intensive tasks, such as shoring up the sealing around windows, trap doors, and air ducts. The process begins with a home energy assessment, during which the technicians inspect the structure for leaks and draw up a report, and ends with the homeowner learning tactics for achieving a marked reduction in monthly energy expenditures.
