We have competitive pricing when you compare us to Costco, The Home Depot and Lowes. Not only do we have competitive pricing with these companies, but we offer so much more. We believe the installation can make or ruin a project so all of our installers have years of experience and are professional from start to finish. We want you to be so comfortable with us that you will want to refer us to your neighbors, friends and family. As several vendors in our industry have shut their doors, we are still teamed up with the leading manufactures who are financial stable and to this day none of our vendors have went out of business. Your warranty is only as good as the financial stabliity of the manufacture. Hope you will be one of our next customers!
Looking forward to working with you.

South County History
When I was in high school my father asked me to help him install an awning that was 92' feet wide with a 15' foot projection that was 32' feet high at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Hotel in Dana Point, CA (This awning was removed during the 2010 remodel). Since I performed many other awning installations, I was not concerned about this big project. As I started up the commercial ladder, I thought "this is no problem," but when I reached the three quarter mark my legs started shaking and my heart was beating faster. Since the project was on a time constraint and the big wigs were coming to town, there was no time for whining. We met our goal and as we were walking out the back door, the big wigs of Marriott were walking in the front door. After that job, every job seemed so close to the ground. This was my initiation into the construction business. I worked with my father for several more years and then left for college.
I attended the University of Redlands and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. At the University of Redlands I was a member of the tennis team in which we were ranked top ten in the nation all the years I played. My last tennis season at Redlands, I finished as an All-American and ended up with a ranking of number 5 in nation in doubles. My goal was to be number one in the nation, but we had a tough opponent in the semi-finals of the National Doubles Tournament at Emery University in Georgia.
After college, I worked as an insurance agent for a couple of years and soon realized that was not the direction I had an interest. During that time, I continued to work part-time with my father's awning and window covering company and realized that I had a passion for the home improvement field. Since my father's company sold and installed interior window coverings along with awnings, I eventually took over the window covering side of the business before I got my own contractor's license and went off on my own.
After visiting several thousand houses from condos to the 10,000 square foot estates, I heard what homeowners really thought of contractors and all the bad experiences they had when dealing with them. I immediately thought I could be different! Of course not all their experiences were bad, but I was very shocked with the high percentage that were dissatisfied and would not recommend their contractors. At this point, my vision was to build a business where I would create great experiences for homeowners that would confidently refer South County Window Coverings to all of their friends, family, neighbors and co-workers. Today, South County focuses on providing customers with carefully picked high quality products and educating customers online so they can make the right choices when buying window coverings and retractable screen doors. South County strives to truly give the customer a great experience so they will be our customers for life.
